GREENCASTLE, Pa A "statement" home is one that makes it clear its owners have attained a certain level of success, either professionally or in business. Ideally, it's spacious and practical enough to accommodate a growing family and elegant enough for gracious entertaining. In other words, it's just like this week's HomeSource Feature Home. Located in a luxury development adjacent to the Greencastle Greens Golf Course, this brick colonial has the dimensions of a trophy house with 5,600 square feet of finished space, six bedrooms and four-and-a-half baths.

One of the most effective ways to use fabric is in the creation of a little "space within a space. " Textiles lend themselves to hanging and wrapping, and they move easily around other objects in a room. The inherent soft quality of fabric makes it a perfect medium for use in a bedroom as a room divider or a bed enclosure. For many centuries, humans have known that it feels safe to sleep in a surrounded place. In 19th century Sweden, they built double bunk beds built into the wall and used fabric curtains to keep the warmth inside the cubicle.

As you approach the front door, your gaze follows the land as it slopes down into a broad valley dotted with farms and clusters of homes. More than 18 acres comprise this property, creating an extensive domain for the owners of the large home. Just the other side of the far ridge is the Antietam National Battlefield. The western view promises a parade of sunsets. And twilight will bring out nature's neighbors from the woodland behind the house, a dedicated forest preservation area. Located south of Keedysville, this all-brick, many-gabled house has 13 large rooms (unless we count the laundry room: it makes 14)

A picturesque century-old barn on the hillside with Licking Creek lazily meandering below add to the charm of the 10-acre property. Reminiscent of a Mediterranean villa, the impressive home features a sweeping circular driveway leading up to the landscaped garden and portico, where six Doric columns soar above the front entry. Two sculptural fountains highlight the portico.
