230 Stony Run Lane, Unit 3D, Baltimore, MD 21210

Hot House: The Gardens of Guilford, a tiny slice of Tuscany; 2 beds/2 baths; 1920 square feet; Asking price: $349,000. 

What: The Gardens of Guilford (although technically in the Roland Park zip code, but that
wouldn’t be as alliterative) are a little slice of Tuscany in the middle of the architecturally
diverse Tuscany-Canterbury neighborhood. This gorgeous condominium is full of beautiful
details, wonderful light and easy convenience.

This second-floor condo is unlike the usual featureless units that the word “condo” brings to
mind. The building itself is reminiscent of the Mediterranean with its white stucco exterior
and red terra cotta barrel roof. As you look at the building, you see loggias, arched windows and beautiful plantings that bring to mind a sunny climate.

As you approach the unit via an iron-railed staircase and terra cotta tiled floors, your
immediate impression of the unit is of lots of light! Huge arched windows, long rows of
windows and high ceilings open up this nearly 2,000 square foot unit. The living room features a beautiful fireplace set in an alcove, with French doors leading to a Juliet balcony. Adjacent to that, two pairs of French doors lead to a large sunroom/den with a long walls windows, with storage units beneath one side. The modern kitchen also features a washer/dryer for your convenience. Just off the kitchen is a formal dining room with space enough for a large table.

The two bedrooms are of a good-size, and one features a wall of closets with plenty of space for your winter and summer wardrobes. Both bathrooms have been modernized for your convenience. The floors in the condo are mostly hardwood, including some in a classic
parquet style.

This unit comes with a separately deeded parking space in the compound’s garage, which is a huge benefit. Unlike many older buildings, this one is centrally air conditioned and heated
with a heat pump.

Where: The Gardens of Guilford are located in Tuscany-Canterbury, a beautiful neighborhood with a huge variety of diverse architectural styles. The Gardens are on a small cul-de-sac off of Linkwood and Tuscany Roads. It’s close to the Rotunda, the restaurants in Charles Village, Johns Hopkins University and to the Stony Run Trail. The Gardens are slightly off the beaten path, so the area is very quiet and contained.

Final Appraisal: The Gardens of Guilford offer both space and privacy. At nearly 2,000 square feet, the unit is significantly larger than most newer two bedroom apartments. The mature plantings, Mediterranean architecture and beautiful setting make this a perfect place for your next home. The listing for the house is here.
