Real Estate Broker/Owner with Guerilla Realty 628217 & 35816

Condo for sale near Johns Hopkins University. It's easy for me to wholeheartedly recommend this residence, I had the pleasure of living there for a few months in 2008; 4000 North Charles St unit 1102 Baltimore, Maryland 21218 is an oversize 2-3 bedroom (in its present layout, one of the bedrooms is a den) + 2 bathroom corner unit on the 11th floor of The Highfield House designed by Mies van der Rohe. If you are an architecture aficionado and you want to live in a building oozing "Mad Men" era charm, you MUST consider The Highfield House.



                            Highfield House


The Highfield House condominium is located in Baltimore's historic Tuscany-Canterbury neighborhood. Built by the famed Bauhaus architect Mies van der Rohe in 1964, it's sleek glass and reinforced concrete construction is a 16 story example of International Style architecture. If you have Modernist sensibilities, and you're in search of Baltimore real estate, you've got to see this building, it's a knock-out.


Highfield House Lobby


The glass-enclosed lobby is always sparkling clean. The furniture is all (of course) Mies van der Rohe, including his "Barcelona" tables and chairs. When I have appointments at The Highfield House, I always seem to arrive a little early to simply linger in the lobby. The best thing about living in the Highfield House is the outstanding staff. A uniformed professional doorman is always at the ready in addition to someone positioned at the front desk and porters. You can come home with a car full of groceries at the end of a long day and they'll take your groceries up to your apartment and park your car in the garage.


Highfield House Pool



There are so many common-area design details I could praise, but just to name a few; there is a service elevator in addition to three passenger elevators so your trip to your unit is never interrupted with elevator congestion, the lawns surrounding the building are golf-course immaculate, and there is a chic circular pool in the recreational area.

Here's a sneak-peak picture of unit 1102. A tenant is currently in-place until the end of the month. The seller is willing to entertain both purchase and lease offers. This property is turnkey ready. The kitchen and the bathrooms have been upgraded. The closets in the master bedroom are huge!

Living with a roommate? Unit 1102 is a great choice. There are several sets of french doors in the unit that provide ample privacy. At one point this was a 3 bedroom unit, so you'll find extra space to set up an office or study lounge. Another bonus?A washer and dryer inside the unit.

Thanks J&H, the seller got in touch with me to see if I could offer some additional social-media oriented marketing - so I offered to feature it in my blog in an effort to find a buyer
