***UPDATE****This property has sold.
Tucked behind Loyola University in Baltimore's Radnor Winston neighborhood, you'll find a darling c.1927 craftsman home awaiting its new owners. My stylish clients have enhanced their classic craftsman with contemporary design. The wall colors found thoughout this home seem to be taken straight from Elle Decor Magazine.
This is 311 Rossiter Ave Baltimore, Maryland 21212 offered for sale by guerilla realty at $220,000.
It's a sensational home and it won't last long.....
In the past few years this home has been improved, making it a turn-key home. It was a fixer upper when current owners aquired it. While the interior has a classic layout, the large squared arches and numerous windows make the space airy and bright. Open-plan can be overrated. Let's use this dining room as an example....
While the dining chairs are not included in the sale, in case you're wondering they're authentic English pub chairs that have been painted turquoise. Since there's a formal dining room, the breakfast nook in the kitchen has been turned into a cafe area with cozy chairs perfect for lingering over a cup of coffee.
The large kitchen has dark quartz counters and stainless steel appliances including a gas stove with a serious hood. Here the classic black and white floor and subway tile backsplash has been amped up with magenta walls. The graphic bold colors feel a bit scandinavian - a la Marimekko.
311 Rossiter Ave in Baltimore Maryland has three bedrooms and two full baths. Plumbing is in-place for a third bathroom in the basement if you are so inclined. Here's a glimpse of the master bedroom.
Need more space?
There is an old-fashioned garage in the back yard that the current owner uses as an artist studio.
I love wood shingle houses, I'll take it over siding any day of the week! The front porch is very much an outdoor living room for the owners. They'll miss warm summer evenings on the porch with lemonade, fireflies, and the company of good neighbors.
Sitting on the porch will give you a snap-shot of the neighborhood, you can see a slow-drip of students and faculty heading to the Loyola and Note Dame University Campuses. Baltimore is a real college-town. My clients have enjoyed the walking access to the fields and tennis courts. Another nearby amenity is Stony Run where you can take a walk in the woods and perhaps encounter deer or a red fox.
As if this house was not sweet enough, a big bonus is that it's located in Baltimore's Roland Park School district. Even if you never utilize this community amenity, it will always be a vote of confidence for the Radnor Winston neighborhood - which is a national historic district. The neighborhood association bills itself as a "small town in the midst of the city" - and that's exactly how it feels. Whether you are headed downtown or a few miles up nearby York Rd to Towson, this location is quite convenient.
Open Houses Saturday April 25 from 11am-1pm and Sunday April 26 from 2pm-4pm.
The property is also available for preview by appointment. Equal Housing Opportunity.
