There is something about this Roland Park home. Something warm and welcoming, fresh and airy, that can be felt the moment you step through the unique arched front door into the spacious foyer. Light spills from the large window at the top of the curving stairs, and you can catch a glimpse of the gardens through the French doors at the end of the hall.
The formal living room is spacious and bright, and the dining room has a floor to ceiling bay window, flanked by French doors to the patio, with spectacular views of the lawn and gardens. Both rooms features wood-burning fireplaces. (Picture sit-down Thanksgiving dinner in front of the fire.) The family room with three walls of windows, French doors to the patio, built-ins and a brick floor makes an inviting and casual gathering place.
The large eat-in kitchen, with island has lots of space for everyone to pitch in with the cooking. There is plenty of room to put a family dining table in front of the large bay window with views of the gardens.
The bedroom at the top of the stairs has a gabled ceiling, and large windows, and shares a “buddy bath” with the middle bedroom with wood-burning fireplace. There are four bedrooms on the second floor, and each is unique. The large master bedroom is flooded with light and adjoins the master bath with original soaking tub. The bedroom at the end of the hall has a gabled ceiling, and four windows, including two dormer casement windows.
A family of five can live comfortably on the second floor. But if you have a larger family, or want to spread out even more, the third floor features two additional bedrooms and a full bath. There are plenty of closets throughout, including a cedar closet on the third floor.
There are plenty of reasons to love this Roland Park treasure. Warm hardwood floors throughout, unusual angles and windows, plaster walls and detailed moldings are things you can only find in these older homes.And there are plenty of reasons to raise a family here – the beautiful tree-lined streets, family-oriented neighborhood, large level yard and proximity to Stoney Run Park are perfect for kids. Great private and public schools are nearby and the location is convenient to Johns Hopkins University and downtown.
