The Colorful Homes of Historic Charles Village in Baltimore, MD 21218:
A fantastic house just came on the market in this highly desirable block. It is not my listing, but I still want to share it with the immediate world. This is one of the grand dames, though it doesn't look like it from the outside, necessarily. It is reminiscent of the Haight Asbury area of San Francisco, near the Painted Ladies.
Once a building with several units, it has lovingly been restored to a single-family home with 5 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, offered at $ 549,500. It has the historic details --fabulous bay window, 5 gorgeous fireplace mantels,
beautiful inlaid wood floors, lovely crown moulding, dramatic staircase.
It has totally been updated into a warm, sophisticated, handsome, and modern Victorian. I would LOVE to live in this house! The kitchen is amazing. But the master bath is what really stole my heart! It's hard to tell from the picture, but it is a French-feeling black and white and bright red room that exudes the best feeling any room can give!
And the backyard with a bluestone slate patio uder the pergola--well that just takes it right over the top! And there is a great 2-car garage as well.
So, what kind of neighborhood is Historic Charles Village with the colorful houses? It is alive! It is on a very important street that goes all the way from Baltimore Harborplace all the way up to the stately homes of Guilford around Johns Hopkins University. It is diverse and has a strong sense of community. It is part of the cultural scene that includes the Baltimore Museum of Art and borders the newly emerging Station North Arts District. Perhaps best of all for commuting Washington DC workers, it is just footsteps to Penn Station, where the MARC train can be picked up!!
So, come on, you DC people! The ones who can't afford those multi-million dollar Victorians in DC! Check out this similar one and other fabulous Baltimore homes and neighborhoods. I am the Baltimore Ambassador and would love to help you find your home here!
