PACE Award Level: Winner
For those seeking a break from the hustle and bustle of Baltimore or Washington, D.C., the apartments at Novus Odenton provide the perfect reprieve. Though the community is within walking distance of the MARC and a short drive from Arundel Mills, the natural setting is also less than a mile from Lake Allen and the Wildlife Loop that passes through the Patuxent Research Refuge.
At times, apartment living may seem like a compromise, but at Novus Odenton the one, two and three bedroom floor plans look and function like single-family homes, providing an elegant atmosphere of peace and serenity. Thanks to expansive windows, warm light welcomes you as you step inside, while arched doorways, wood wainscoting and crown molding give each residence a sophisticated appeal. Generously sized kitchens boast stainless steel appliances, double sinks and full-size pantries. Italian walnut cabinets and granite countertops enhance the cooking space’s luxurious aesthetic. Dual vanities and oversized soaking tubs transform the sumptuous bathrooms into relaxing sanctuaries. Conveniences such as walk-in closets and in-home washers and dryers are included. Select models offer screened-in porches and towering eighteen-foot ceilings as well. The community’s amenities—including a Mondrian-style pool, a 5,000-square-foot health club and a game room with soaring windows—look out over Odenton’s open wetlands and pine-speckled hills. You also gain access to a pet salon, a theatre room, a bike repair shop and a covered parking garage.
