If you’ve been around Baltimore, you’re probably familiar with the all brick, sturdy townhomes that are standard in many communities. Loch Raven Village is known for it’s schools and long-term residents, but you can bet your bottom dollar that there’s a standard floor plan, with distinct rooms, a small-ish kitchen and 1.5 bathrooms, making them a little out of sync with today’s standards of open flow and function for the contemporary family lifestyle. Now, forget everything you think you know about THIS home. From the moment the beautiful front door opens, your mind is blown, and I guarantee there will be a smile, followed closely with a “Wow!”
The JLC Team has been doing some beautiful work in Baltimore. Known for doing the job right, without cutting corners, attention to every detail, and design with lifestyle in mind, they have done another gorgeous job with this one. The first thing to note, is the removal of the dividing center wall, to open up the living space.
A large living room with working wood fireplace, original (beautifully finished) hardwood floors,recessed lighting and plenty of large windows.
Beautiful columns lend to the design of the house, and provide a natural transition to the dining area.
The dining area features a bay window, offering a treed view of the park.
The large kitchen offers plenty of space for the whole family to get involved at dinner. Stools line the breakfast bar, granite tops, custom lighting and easy-to-clean tile floor.
A cook’s kitchen, with stainless appliances and range hood, tiled backsplash and plenty of hardwood cabinets to store all your gadgets.
Behind the kitchen is a large closet, home to a full-size washer and dryer set. Wood-paneled wall gives a Nantucket ambiance.
A half-bath on the first floor is unheard of in many of these homes. A thoughtful convenience.
Maximizing the use of space with a family business station to organize mail, keep car keys and post reminders for the day ahead.
The color palate throughout the house is admirable. Subtle color, carried throughout not only makes everything look bigger and brighter, but the contrast allows the white woodwork to pop.
The master bedroom is large, with plenty of natural light, two closets and, incredibly, a half bath. A ceiling fan provides added comfort, when you’re ready to turn off the central air.
Nice size second bedroom.
Renovated full bathroom upstairs with beautiful tilework and new window.
Attention to details- This open glass above the bathroom door helps to keep the upstairs hallway nice and bright.
The basement has been beautifully transformed to a family suite. Light and bright, with tile flooring, recessed lights and plenty of windows, it’s sure to be a family favorite.
There’s plenty of space to make this area a home theater, with wall enough for a big screen.
The tour continues to another area, just the right size for a game table or craft set-up. Two large storage closets for storing seasonals and sports equipment.
The basement also features a full bathroom with basin sink.
And a herringbone tiled shower.
The exterior shows beautifully, with new front porch and rails.
The back yard has a grassy area to play.
And a patio area to entertain.
This is the kind of community where flags adorn front porches, and neighbors decorate yards for the holidays. You can walk to the senior art center, or stroll across the street to the community park with a large playground and tennis courts. Friendly neighbors walk the streets, and there’s a great mix of old residents and new. The schools are ranked well, and worth checking out.
Whether you’re in the market for a townhome, or haven’t really considered one until now, this house is a must-see. If you happen to see a member of the JLC Team, make sure you tell them what a great job they did!
