Not Brookland Manor, but a Brookland Manor
This plantation-style house in Brookland has tall stately columns along the front porch. The double-sided stairway has a decorative panel in the railing and a living room and family room through the entryways on either side. The formal dining room has a built-in corner cabinet and a set of french doors out to a sunroom which is surrounded by doors instead of windows, leading out to a covered porch on one side and an open porch on the other. The kitchen is a couple of stairs up from the dining room and has a marble tiled backsplash, farmhouse apron sink, and butcher block countertops. The huge owner's en-suite bath has a double vanity and a tiled shower stall which obstructs view of the toilet on the other side. The house has storage and laundry on the lower level, and a 450 square-foot attic bonus room boasts a wood plank pitched ceiling and unique built-ins.

Upstairs, the owner's bedroom has an attached den, while the lower level doubles as an in-law suite with kitchen and full bath.
