Hot House: 300 International Drive, Unit 2301, Baltimore, MD 21202.

Large three-bedroom, two-bath condominium on the 23rd floor of the Four Seasons. Deck, walk-in closets, wet bar, and windows that extend the length of the condo to survey the spectacular views. 2,208 sq. ft.: $2,750,000

What could be better on New Year’s Eve than having a front-row seat to the fireworks display on Baltimore’s Inner Harbor? This three-bedroom, two-bath apartment has a view of both the smaller, lower fireworks in front of Harborplace, and the larger, higher fireworks shot from a barge moored off of the Baltimore Museum of Industry. Have a huge party for dozens of friends who can watch from your perch overlooking the harbor, or an intimate dinner for two, in the glass-walled dining room.

What: Built in 2017, this condo in the Four Seasons Private Residences would make a lovely in-town residence for a young couple or empty-nesters sick of caring for a large house with lots of land. Add to the ease of care the spectacular views stretching from the Key Bridge to the hills on the western edge of Baltimore City, and you have a sublime, one-of-a-kind Baltimore dwelling. Sit on the private deck and watch the ships come and unload their cargo at Domino Sugar, and see the planes in the distance lining up to land at BWI, which is less than 15 minutes away. Catch the sun coming up over the harbor and see it setting over Camden Yards.

Where: The Four Seasons Residences are in the center of Harbor East with restaurants, bars, shopping, a Whole Foods, a movie theatre, and more within a five-minute walk. There are dedicated spaces in the on-site garage, as well as valet parking, and the building provides concierge services throughout the Four Seasons. The trendy Bygone Restaurant is a few floors above along with the Splash Bar at the roof-top pool. Also, there is an indoor pool for those long winter days and an in-house fitness center and sauna.

Final Appraisal: You will have the best seat in the house for New Year’s Eve and Fourth of July fireworks, as well as being eye-to-eye with the pilots flying the Blue Angels. With plenty to do close by, you would rarely need to use a car. The building was constructed in 2017, with all of the latest luxury amenities and finishes. View the listing here.
