Right off the Baltimore Ave strip, get the ease of maintenance of a nicely renovated, right-size house with just enough of the character of an older home—high ceilings, oversize windows and original woodwork—to provide a warm, homey vibe. On the first floor, which has newer hardwood floors throughout, there is a tiled foyer with oversize original inner door with transom; cozy front parlor; formal dining room; good-sized, sunny kitchen with stainless steel appliances, granite counters with undermount sink, plenty of cabinet space and room for an island, plus conveniently located laundry and powder rooms. Use either the front or back stairs to get to the second floor’s three bedrooms and hall bath; the spacious back bedroom has four large windows, the front bedroom has a sweet cutout with extra-large bay window, and the middle room is large enough to be a true bedroom, not just a home office or extra storage. The spacious bathroom features a granite double vanity and nice ceramic tile. On the third floor there is a large fourth bedroom with double windows and the final—that’s five in all—bedroom. And with the hall window overlooking the rear roof, the option for a roof deck and/or urban garden is well within reach. The basement is finished, allowing for options for a media room, home gym/yoga room, or music or art studio, as well as two dedicated storage areas—and did we mention the central air? The house itself is awesome, but the location is next-level: Baltimore Ave is less than two blocks away, so places like Mariposa Food Co-op, Dock Street brewery, the brand-new Bar(n), Cedar Park Cafe, Vix Emporium, Gold Standard Cafe and Satellite Coffee—not to mention the 34 trolley line—are all super-convenient.
