Welcome to 7120 Wayside Dr, an exceptional estate with scenic acreage of almost 15 acres. The John Lyons House has a central passage, four-room plan of the first-floor is enlivened by double-leafed French doors opening onto the front rooms from the hall and between the two north living rooms. A broad stair rises to a second-floor lobby extending toward the front of the house, opening off from which are four bedrooms. The home has two full bathrooms - one being a primary bathroom which includes custom selected wall tiles, one half bathroom and an in ground pool. The basement offers an optional office/den, a utility area, ample amounts of storage, a work bench/tool room and a walkout basement door to the rear yard. The home was completely rewired years back and the washer/dryer was moved to the top floor, with the basement still allowing a laundry area. Closest to the house is a small, one-story, gable-roofed structure that for most of its life has been used as a garage. Next to this is a small shed, and beyond this a rambling structure of several components, the principal one being a bank barn where the lower level was used for housing livestock and the upper level for both hay storage and the air- curing of tobacco. Recent enhancements include a newer HVAC system install, newer (and beautiful) roof, the siding is quite special as it is a custom-milled cedar board that replicates the original sheathing, newer septic system, newer kitchen floors, pointed up ceramic tiles on the porches and a well maintained well and septic system. Approached by a U-shaped graveled drive and facing directly east toward the public road, the Joseph Lyons House is a large, three-story, frame structure with a hipped roof and full-width front and rear porches. All of the openings in the house are evenly spaced and precisely aligned at both floor levels. In addition to its perfectly symmetrical composition, the exterior features overhanging boxed eaves above a wide frieze board, bold corner boards, truncated porch columns, windows of nine- over-one double-hung sash, and a glazed, double-leafed entrance door framed by full-height sidelights. A commuters dream to have privacy yet still being centrally located to major cities such as Washington DC, Annapolis, Baltimore, etc. No HOA!
