960 Fell Street, Unit 705, Fell’s Point, Baltimore

Hot House: A gorgeous penthouse, in the middle of everything with spectacular panoramic harbor views.  Two beds/2.5 baths. Asking price: $1.02 mil.

At the end of the cobbled Fell Street, you’ll find a former warehouse that is now the Belt’s Landing condos. At the very top of Belt’s Landing is this penthouse that represents all the best of what Baltimore offers. Close to the action of Fell’s Point, but above it all with views that stretch across the water to the stadiums on the west side and to Key Bridge on the east side.

What: Now that it’s time to give up that house and lawn in the county and move downtown, you need just the right place. This two-bed/two-and-a-half-bath penthouse with amazing views could be the place. Imagine making a cup of coffee in your beautiful kitchen and walking out to your deck to watch the sun come up over the water, or mix a drink in the wet bar and join friends for a cocktail watching the sunset over the stadiums.

Although Fell’s Point is known for its busy and active night-life, it’s also a cozy city neighborhood with coffee shops, bakeries and bars. Annual events like the Fell’s Point Festival, Halloween parade and much more are yours to participate in or just observe. When there are fireworks, the lighted boat parade, sailboat races, tall ships arriving or even the Blue Angels, your deck overlooking both the inner and outer harbor is the ideal viewing space.  Work from home in the quiet den in front of your fireplace (which makes a great Zoom background!).

The beautiful, light-filled Penthouse comes with high-end details everywhere: custom millwork, beautiful marble, a custom kitchen, a separate bar with its own fridge, en-suite bathrooms, walk-in closets, fireplaces, two parking spaces, and views galore. The building features a secure entry manned 24/7, an exercise room, a pool overlooking the water, an enclosed courtyard for residents, and smoke detectors and sprinklers throughout the building. The penthouse is move-in ready.

Where: Fell Street is one of the little streets that angle off of Thames Street. On a foggy evening, you can imagine the ghosts which still walk the cobbled streets. It is just around the corner from the Pendry Hotel, and close to all of the restaurants and bars in Fells Point. The Penthouse comes with two parking places in the building’s secure garage.

Final Appraisal: A unit like this penthouse does not come on the market very often. It has views unlike any other in Baltimore, looking over the water to the east, south and west. It’s in a secure building with all of the amenities that any discerning home-owner could want. The listing is here.
