Property Description

This classic Victorian duplex is on a pretty tree-lined street close to Baltimore Ave. Enjoy the perks of homeownership in this ideal location while a tenant helps pay the mortgage. Solid and well maintained, this spacious property has charming original details like bay windows, hardwood floors, a turned staircase and design choices that add to the bright and airy vibe, while the separate entrances make it a great alternative to the typical in-law suite setup. Enter the larger of the two units from the pretty front porch through the stately vestibule into a light-filled living room with bay window with window seat, arched front window, decorative mantel and original hardwood floors that run throughout. Through a wide archway is the formal dining room with original built-in china cabinet and access to a powder room with beadboard wall accent. The kitchen at the rear features crisp white cabinets, contrasting dark countertops and stainless steel appliances, including a GE Profile five-burner range. The second floor has three nicely sized bedrooms; the front features a lovely bay window and decorative mantel with original tile hearth, and the rear two are connected—ideal for a bedroom/dressing room situation. There’s a nicely appointed hall bath with ceramic tile floors and linen closet. The second unit has a private side entrance, and this sweet space could make a great au pair suite, in-law suite or Airbnb listing. With two spacious bedrooms on opposite ends, newly refinished hardwood floors, an updated kitchen and in-unit laundry, this unit is ready to roll. The rear yard could be shared with both units, or add a privacy fence for exclusive main-floor access off the back deck. This home is convenient to Clark Park, Mariposa Food Co-op, Milk & Honey, Green Line Cafe, the Gold Standard Cafe and the 34 trolley line.
