Condo Connections in Baltimore

Real Estate Broker/Owner with HomeRome Realty 410-530-2400 311291

The 6200 block of Park Heights Avenue in Baltimore is home to some of my favorite real estate. There's the Million Dollar Mansion at 6211 that is the jewel of my listings right now. And right across the street is Strathmore Towers at 6210. I just added #602 to my listings, but there have been several others over the years, including Briana's.

You'll recall a delightful young woman who came to Baltimore to attend college and who found her home in #701 at the Strathmore Towers. The transaction started when her mother contacted me from the British Virgin Islands. What began as a conversation with an out-of-town buyer turned into a special connection for all of us.

The condo  was vacant and in beautiful condition when Briana purchased. With much style and elegance, she decorated her space - I am so proud of this young, talented full time student. Much of the furniture came from another unit in this same building. But it was Briana's accessories, placement and  wood refinishing, that made it her home.

Seeing a young person create her own space and fill it with personality is one of the special perks of best parts of my job!

Margaret, what an interesting block in the city.  Brianna's condo looks great.  I love the look of he mansion, not what I expect to find in Baltimore.  It has such a light and bright feel that you might get at the beach.  Have a great weekend.

Margaret, What a beautiful space she has to come home to everyday!  Wherever the furniture came from, it looks just beautiful.  Now I have to go back and see that million dollar listing :)

Jen, Thanks for being the first comment.

Sally, Thanks for stopping by and remembering Lee. I am staying warm and enjoying our winter weather.

Dr. Stacey, i just spoke to Briana, sent her the link and know she is reading all the comments.

Carole, Briana's condo is right across the street from the mansion. The wood furniture came from another unit in the building. There was some special TLC given because it did not look like this in the former condo.

Lizette, Briana has quite an eye for space and color.

Connie, Briana is definitely the youngest owner in this building.

Hi I am Briana, the owner of the wonderful home that you are looking at.  Thank you for all the wonderful comments about my home I really do enjoy coming home after a long day at school. If you notice that my decorating style is Asian inspired with an urban flare - I like things to be simple, straight lines, chic (smiles). 

Margaret you did a wonderful job with the pictures!! Thank You

I just came from your updated blog about Briana's graduation.  I like the new paint colors better than the white...
