What: On the market for just over a week, this house already has an offer and a sale is pending. But as they say in real estate, “there’s many a slip betwixt the cup and the lip.” Things happen, and a backup offer is always possible. It is certainly a house worth going out on a limb for — cozy and adorable, with updates done well and respectfully. Bigger than it looks from the photo, and more open that you would expect from a cottage, it is a house that could work as well for a family as for a couple or a single person. The buyer will, however, be faced with a common Roland Park dilemma regarding the fine old original oak paneling and trim — an issue that divides neighbors, couples and even entire families: To paint, or not to paint?

 

Where: Elmwood Road runs east from Longwood Road, which runs off Roland Avenue.  It is a long gentle downhill slope, which passes this house, crosses Edgevale and winds its way down to Falls Road.This house is about a 5-10 minute walk up to Eddie’s, the Roland Park Library and the schools that help make the neighborhood such a popular destination.

Why: Nice, long driveway in stone block.

Why Not: The one-car garage will not fit your GMC Yukon.

Would Suit: Architectural anglophiles looking for style, rather than size.

NB: The gardens have been lovingly created  by a native plant specialist, and will be low-maintenance as well as beautiful.
