Are you looking for a retreat from the everyday, a special place to call your own that is far from the madding crowd, yet convenient to all that Baltimore has to offer? Look no further – this spectacular gated home is located on 3 private acres near Lake Roland.
The California contemporary was built in 1951 by one of the boat-building Owens brothers who were “known for using top-quality materials in their boats such as “white oak for the stern and framing, copper and brass fastenings, and mahogany imported from the Philippines for planking and finishing work.”*
Evidence of this craftsmanship and attention to detail is in evidence throughout, particularly in the library/dining room, where teak that was used in their boats was used in for the floor and 4″ thick door between library and living room. Complimenting that theme, the current owner added floor to ceiling bookshelves and custom cabinets with drawers.
The low profile front entrance that blends into the surroundings can be deceiving, but the approach up the drive reveals the full extent of the 6-bedroom home. Following the contours of the land, the house nestles into a hillside, and walls of windows provide incredible light throughout. Click to read entire post and view more of this gorgeous home.
