5731 Baltimore Ave – PENDING

Bright, spacious and with bedrooms for days, this soaring twin on a large corner lot with detached two-car garage (not a typo!) feels like a dreamy modern-day bed and breakfast. The slate-tiled enclosed front porch leads to the totally open sun-drenched first floor, where high ceilings and new hand-scraped hardwood floors are met with striking original details in a crisp black-and-white color scheme that feels simultaneously antique and contemporary. Check out the decorative fireplace and leaded glass window in the living room, upcycled built-in cabinet in the dining room, and even copper-hued radiators. The enormous kitchen’s open layout makes it an entertainer’s, cook’s or work-from-home-er’s dream alike—a large quartz-topped workhorse of an island with deep undermount sink is opposite classic white Shaker-style cabinets with butcher block countertops, open shelves and a subway tile backsplash framing a dramatic chimney range hood. The whole farmhouse-chic theme is topped off with warm slate tiles and stainless steel appliances, including a Haier fridge. The turned staircase with a unique transom is the gateway to six large bedrooms evenly spread between the two upper floors. Each has its own individual charm, from square bay windows, mirrored built-in armoires and oversized windows to garden views and dual closets. In both bathrooms you’ll find slate tile floors and Shaker-style white vanities; one features a classic clawfoot tub and the other a more modern soaking tub with subway tile surround. The L-shaped garden space is amazing for whatever your outdoor thing is—cookouts, gardening, hammock naps or maybe creating a doggy paradise. Baltimore Ave is right at your fingertips, while Cobbs Creek’s hiking and biking trails, baseball, basketball and ice skating rink are just a few blocks away.
