Bibliophile Residence for Sale in Hampden

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Guerilla Realty 628217 & 35816

 ***UPDATE***This property has sold



On a signature block in Hampden, one block above The Avenue, you'll find 3633 Roland Ave. This c. 1880 duplex-style rowhouse is clad in white siding. Once inside you'll find a bibliophile residence that's not like all the other houses in the neighborhood. Listed for $249,000 by guerilla / realty this home has unexpected spaces on all three floors. 




3633 Roland Ave 21211



The front door opens to reveal a grand staircase, pocket doors, fireplace, and original hardwood floors. The interior of this home has an antique aesthetic that's going to set the right person's heart on fire.  These days that's not the average buyer in Hampden who might favor contemporary renovations, it's the more elusive buyer who wants a property that's got old fashioned charm. 





This house has a lot of books. It feels like a library. Today during my Broker's Open when I was between visitors I read an essay by Mark Twain, I just grabbed the book off the shelf. It's not the usual way I spend my time, but this house reminded me that there are other things to read besides emails.

A view of the front hallway, with more books. This type of interior hallway is a great place to display prints or photographs, the close proximity and low light levels are ideal.

The dining room is a large space well suited for entertaining.  The artwork on view is by Meg Soper.

The room gets a good amount of light from windows that face the access point for the backyard. This property may be a center-unit but it gets light on three exposures. There is a full bath (one of two in the home) off the dining room.

The kitchen has been updated. There is a lot of storage and counter space for its modest size.  A breakfast nook (not shown) is a great space for coffee and the newspaper. The peach wall color is a good choice for the room as the eastern exposure will illuminate the space each morning.

The second floor of the home features three bedrooms and one full bathroom. One of the bedrooms (not shown) has been transformed into a laundry room + master closet space.

The finished third floor of the home has a lot of built-in storage. Its' a great flex space that has possibility to be any type of space the new owner might need including a playroom, a home office, or an extra bedroom.

The backyard garden is landscaped with perennials. The back of the detached garage gives a bit of romance to the space. There is evidence that the waste lines have been replaced. This might not seem exciting to you, but if you're a Realtor you know that's exactly what we want to see. Currently there is a ramp (not shown) leading to the backdoor of the house (off the dining room). The house also currently has a shower on the first floor set up with disability access. Both of these items are in good condition.

The oh-so-essential garage will be a big factor in selling this house. This location is one block from Hampden's main street that features more independent restaurants, boutiques, and cafes than any other area in Baltimore City. For this reason parking is at a premium. Coming home to this cheery two-tone turquoise garage and landscaped backyard is a great way to end the workday.

 Back outside the front door of the property, you'll appreciate the view of the neighboring houses on Roland Ave. There is a pride of ownership on this block that is evident to all who pass by. The scale of the houses are a bit larger. Its charming to see these colorful properties from all the windows on the west side of the house.
