Property Description

Bright and charming, this efficiently laid out porchfront rowhome is a seamless blend of old and new. Renovated less than five years ago and lovingly maintained since, the home benefits from updated systems; gorgeous original details like gleaming pine floors throughout, decorative mantel and a solid oak front door; and thoughtful customizations like the built-in white oak bookcases. The main level is open-plan with amazing natural light from front to back—but especially in the kitchen, with two exposures highlighting the espresso-hued Shaker-style 42-inch cabinets, quartz countertops with stainless steel undermount sink, ceramic tile backsplash with inlaid accent tile and stainless steel appliances. Back in the living area, which the current owners have configured with a clever reverse-layout living/dining setup, the turned staircase with a sweet little pet/storage nook underneath leads up to the sleeping quarters with three sunny bedrooms. The largest room at the front features a lovely bay window and dual closets and the rear room has dual exposures. The funky layout of the middle room makes it a great candidate for use as a home office or dressing room but has plenty of space if a traditional bedroom is what’s needed . The hall bath is nice and bright too, featuring a large soaking tub, porcelain tile surround with stone tile inlay and wood vanity with subway tile backsplash. The full basement allows plenty of room for storage as well as the full-size LG frontloaders. With virtually no interior work to do, the owners focused their energy on establishing pollinator-friendly landscaping, adding a variety of mostly native perennials and shrubs and a large Rain Check planter in front and along the rear yard’s perimeter. Situated on a nice tree-lined block, this home is in an ideal location close to public transit and great local businesses along both the Baltimore and Woodland Ave strips.
