You have admired these homes for years. Always wondering – when will one come on the market?? Now is your chance. Known as one of the ‘railroad’ homes when the Maryland and Pennsylvania (Ma & Pa) railroad ran parallel to the street, this Dutch Colonial duplex is now a coveted Roland Park home that fronts the Stony Run Trail. Just watch the joggers and the walkers as they slow down or stop I mid conversation to admire the few homes that have the good fortune to overlook the trail. It is a country setting in Baltimore City.
Not only does this home boast a premier location, but it is widely admired for its gardens. It’s a panoramic surge on the senses! Featured in magazines and included in two Maryland Horticultural Society garden tours, this home will speak to anyone who admires thoughtful planning and year-round beauty. Time and care over the years have been given to every detail of the gardens. A rock wall that took three years to build; conditioning of plants and the soil – and thousands (yes thousands) of plants.
Although you might never want to leave the front, side or back gardens (all three sides of the home feature magnificent displays), you will be equally enchanted when you walk into the front screened in porch that stretches across the entire front of the home. It is easy to picture a day’s worth of activities right on the porch: morning coffee and the paper, afternoon naps and evenings entertaining friends. Inside – a Roland Park sanctuary. From the living room with beautiful built-in seating and bookcases to the storybook kitchen with our favorite pantry of all time! A formal dining room is a nice counterpart to the screened-in porch. The second level has three bedrooms and a full bathroom, and the third level offers two more bedrooms and a full bathroom. Wonderful updates over the years include restoration to the original windows, a new house roof – and new copper roofs and gutters on the porches, newer HVAC systems, refinished wood floors, electrical upgrades – just to name a few. There are opportunities to put a few of your finishing touches on this wonderful home – or move in and relish all the magnificence that is already here. This is Roland Park at its best!
