Cedar Grove

1. Question: When does two equal three? Answer: When you are looking at what appears to be two townhouses at Cedar Grove in Crofton.

A closer inspection of the townhomes being built by Classic Community Corporation reveals that what looks like two three-level houses is actually two two-level condominium townhomes and one one-level condominium.

Located in Crofton's "Golden Triangle," Cedar Grove has a private swim club, open recreation areas and a community association that takes care of lawn mowing, snow removal and exterior building maintenance.

Occupying the lower level under two two-story townhomes, the one-level Ashcroft has a beginning price of $104,990. Like the other homes, this condo has approximately 1,220 square feet.

The entry foyer is several steps above the rest of the unit which includes a 25-by-11-foot living/dining room, 12-by-8-foot kitchen with laundry area, a storage area, full hall bath, 10-by-10-foot second bedroom and a master suite with a 16-by-11-foot bedroom, walk-in closet and bath with a tub and separate shower.

At $112,490, the Bancroft is less expensive than the other two-story home by $500. A covered porch, foyer, 14-by-8-foot front kitchen, powder room, 18-by-17-foot living/dining room and deck occupy the first floor.

Upstairs, each of the two bedrooms has a wall of closets, a 14-by-10-foot floor area and a full bath. A linen closet and laundry area complete this level.

The Cedarlea has a deck, 15-by-9-foot rear kitchen with work island, powder room and 21-by-13-foot living/dining room. The second-floor master suite has a walk-in closet, 14-by-11-foot bedroom with cathedral ceiling and a full bath. Two other bedrooms, a linen closet and full hall bath complete this level.

The sales center is open from 11 a.m. to dusk. Take Route 3 South, turn left on Cedar Grove Road and follow signs to models.
