Chic corner condo for sale in Baltimore's Mt. Vernon neighborhood. If you're searching for a convenient pied-a-terre in the city, this one bedroom loft-style apartment may be just what you're looking for. Listed for sale by guerilla / realty for $239,000 - 1209 N. Charles St unit 307 is a gem.
Relocating to Baltimore and in need of a new home asap? Choosing this property is a no brainer especially if you're making a quick decision without knowing too much about the city. This location is sometimes called "Midtown Belvedere" - which is essentially the north side of Mt. Vernon.
The property was built in 2007 and has only improved with age. There is a Starbucks on the commercial level of the building and you're a short walk to Baltimore's Penn Station. Headed to BWI airport? Taking Amtrak or the MARC from Penn Station to BWI is fast and affordable. It's my favorite way to get to the aiport without the hassle of sitting in traffic.
The lobby at 1209 N. Charles St does not disappoint. The artwork is by Kelly Walker. This is the pedestrian entrance, as our condo comes with a deeded parking space in the onsite garage you'll likely take the elevator straight from the garage to your floor.
Unit 307 has a long front hallway, it makes for a bit of drama as you walk down the corridor towards the main loft-style room. Note the width of the hallway and the height of the 10 ft ceilings.
The barely used kitchen is a testament to the number of good restaurants in the neighborhood. But it's not just dinner, you're also walking distance to The Lyric Opera House, The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, The Charles Theater, and The Walters Art Museum.
The blond wood floors in the main room hit just the right note. I especially enjoy the contrast of living in a contemporary space while enjoying historic views of older buildings across the street. From the south facing corner window you can see Baltimore's Washington Monument at Mount Vernon Place.
An alcove in the main room has been transformed into a space well suited for guests or perhaps just a great place for your pet to nap. The Twelve 09 condos are pet friendly. There is even an onsite Pet Valu store in the 1209 N. Charles St commericial spaces.
The master bedroom suite is a clean neutral space. Double doors lead you into the room off the loft-style main room. There is a second entrance via the ensuite bathroom. A stacked laundry (washer and dryer) is housed in a closet outside the bathroom.
The bathroom is well appointed with ample storage in the large vanity. You'll appreciate how this condo functions with a good division between public and private space - plenty of room either way. Speaking of which, while this unit is not expressley set up for disability access, the building has a lot of access already built-in including eletronic door openers and wide hallways. Its one of the few buildings in the neighborhood where someone who needs disability access can live with great ease.
Twelve 09 N. Charles St has a delightful interior courtyard that all residents are welcome to use. Enjoy the benefits of a patio + lawn space without having to do any maintence. The courtyard also features an atmospheric gas fireplace (not shown). The elevated courtyard sits on top of the garage, with entrances on the first resident floor. This floor also houses the resident gym.
The sale of 1209 N. Charles St unit 307 includes a deeded parking space in the garage and a deeded storage unit. The garage is spacious, you'll have no trouble parking any type of car.
