An inspired renovation preserved the special features of this 1911 Victorian on a rarely-available deep lot, and added a contemporary, private, primary suite on the third floor. From its beginnings, the house was styled for gracious entertaining and private moments of study. The wrap-around porch offers a welcome to guests and a spot for relaxing. The foyer leads to a formal dining room sized for dinner for eight to ten, and the living room with its full bay window. To the rear, an expansive family room has a gas fireplace for chilly days, and French doors leading out to the deck in warm weather. It retains the wood ceiling that may be original to the house. The centerpiece of the gourmet kitchen is a Thermodor gas range with matched exhaust system and pot filler faucet. The embossed ceiling and a hand-crafted pantry cabinet are believed to be original to the house. A full bath with shower is on this level. Two lighted niches with bound glass doors grace the stairs to the second floor. The two secondary bedrooms are bright with sunshine, and flank a full bath that's updated with a tiled shower stall. Also on the second floor, along the entire side of the house, an open office has an attached nook for a hobby area or closet, and could be a third bedroom. The stairs here lead to the expanded third floor. This private primary suite includes a French door overlooking the city, sitting and dressing room with custom cabinetry, a vaulted ceiling with recessed lights, and a luxury bathroom with granite-topped vanity, whirlpool tub, and separate shower. Barn doors slide for privacy. Also here is the laundry center, including a combination dryer with steam chamber. Outside, the back yard is double-lot long and fenced, with privacy and space for gardening and games. With the spacious deck, it has been the site for numerous outdoor dinners and parties. Solar panels on the roof are owned by the homeowner -- not owned or leased by a solar panel company. The battery cabinet and wiring system are in the basement. The seller has had the electrical wiring and plumbing updated, and the house has central air conditioning. A central vacuum system has receptacles on every floor. This property is Baltimore's 'academic' neighborhood -- close to Johns Hopkins, Loyola, Notre Dame of Maryland, Towson and Morgan State universities, and Goucher College. The Baltimore public school assignment is Roland Park, and Gilman, Bryn Mawr and Roland Park Country Day schools are nearby as well. A perfect house, combining the graciousness of tradition with modern amenities and a superb location.
