FEATURED HOT LISTING: 5508 Kemper Rd, The Orchards
OPEN HOUSE THIS SUNDAY, APRIL 28
Nestled away in the coveted community of The Orchards sits this charming colonial. The Orchards is known for its well-built, good looking, classic houses and its incomparable location: right on the city/county line, bordered on the east and west by Charles Street and Roland Avenue, and on the north and south by Lake Avenue and Northern Parkway. Because it is near the best public and private schools, the neighborhood attracts families with children and houses here are snapped up quickly. The Orchards has a family-friendly, homey feel and those who settle here tend to stay for decades.
That’s why this house on Kemper Road is such a valuable find!
With its ample space and plenty of natural light, the sunroom, lined with floor to ceiling windows on three sides, is a favorite sitting or entertaining spot.
The lovely landscaped yard with winding walkways, shade trees, a small pond, and the promise of an herb garden, makes an appealing welcome.
Four bedrooms, including a master bedroom and two more bedrooms on the second floor, provide plenty of room for the family. Three and a half baths put contemporary comfort on a classic home.
A large living room with bay windows, leads to a lovely staircase, kept bright with a window at the landing.
Gorgeous dark wood floors, crown molding, chair rail and built-ins keep the home’s integrity and its classic, old world charm.
The beautiful updated kitchen features cherry wood floors, cherry cabinetry, slate back splash and granite counters bringing the look up-to-date.
The colonial style dining room with wood floors, chair rail, moulding, built-ins and French doors is elegant enough for entertaining, yet cozy enough for family dinners.
A large deck among the trees is the perfect place for morning coffee or a weekend cook-out, offering privacy and a view.
Garage and private driveway included!
All of this is adjacent to Roland Park and within easy access to downtown.
