Tucked down a private drive in Ruxton sits a large English country estate steeped in Baltimore history. Built 1931, originally composed of 14 acres of farmland and orchards, ‘Sunset Hill,’ located at 7900 Ruxwood Road, was purchased in the 1950s by Jerry Hoffberger, former president of the National Brewing Company and one-time owner of the Baltimore Orioles. Along with his legacy of Bohs and O’s, Mr. Hoffberger was an avid horse breeder and Sunset Hill served as his horse farm close to town for many decades.
Lovingly preserved and tastefully decorated, 7900 Ruxwood maintains a timeless elegance that begins with beautifully manicured gardens, large specimen trees and sweeping lawns. Through a classic, paneled oak front door, the formal Living and Dining Rooms sit opposite one another across a grand Foyer, lit by a crystal chandelier. Set a step down, the Living Room offers a large picture window and an exquisite wood paneled alcove with a wood burning fireplace, neatly accented with a Georgian mantel. Sunshine pours into the adjoining Study through large windows, French doors and lovely sidelights which lead out to a wisteria-draped pergola and patio perfectly shaded to enjoy a hot summer day. From this relaxing locale access a walled, English style Garden and luxurious pool with a flagstone Patio and inviting Pool House.
The wide formal Dining Room provides access through French doors to an adjoining Den with fireplace, well-crafted casework and cabinetry. Through an adjacent portal from the Dining Room sits the spacious gourmet Kitchen with solid wood custom cabinetry, Sub-Zero refrigerator, Viking range, attached Breakfast area and access to the 2-car Garage. Adjacent to the Kitchen, a large Family Room offers additional fireplace, built-in cabinetry as well as a wall of floor-length windows and two doors leading to the Patio. The Second floor boasts an expansive Master Bedroom Suite, complete with large dressing area and Bath as well as five additional Bedrooms and three Baths. Rich in local history and full of warmth and character, this beautifully updated Ruxton home radiates classic elegance and timeless grandeur.
Embracing the elegance and refinement emblematic of early 20th century Ruxton/Woodbrook estate homes, built as a wedding gift for the son of a prominent Baltimore family in 1922, this brick Georgian home was enlarged and renovated in the mid 80's. The beneficiary of another stunning renovation in 2010, 7321 Brightside Road enjoys a seamless mix of new and old going back to the home's 1920's roots and style, preserving the classic, traditional feel of the house while creating a state-of-the-art space appropriate for today's luxury living.
Bright, naturally lit spaces abound, maintaining a casual grace evident throughout the home. A classic barrel-vaulted portico leads to a gracious Foyer from which a formal Living Room & Study can be found, both with fireplaces. Double doors lead from the Living Room to the Sunroom, awash with light, featuring custom bookcases and French doors to the Terrace. An architectural archway from the Foyer gives access to the Stair Hall with its traditional open staircase, French doors to the Terrace and double doors to the large banquet-size Dining Room. Several large rooms were combined in 2010 to make way for the custom gourmet Kitchen boasting Belgian bluestone flooring, paneled solid wood cabinetry, top appliances, honed and polished granite counters, a large dining area and open flow to the Family Room with stone fireplace. A charming vintage Butler's Pantry with wet bar and wine cooler, Powder Room and Mudroom complete the main level.

A perfectly charming cedar-sided Cape Cod cottage sits just adjacent to the home, built in 1992 as a 2-story office suite including a galley Kitchen and cherry Conference Room with fireplace.
Soaring ceilings, handsome moldings, refined architectural details, gleaming heart pine floors, large rooms with great flow and all of today's amenities all contribute in creating the quintessential modern Ruxton home.

A riot of flora and fauna colorfully accent the gently winding tree-lined drive as it moves through wooded groves with Slade Run meandering alongside and opens to fenced paddocks guiding the way to the custom, all-brick Georgian style home.
