5105 Falls Road Terrace, Baltimore, MD 21210.

Hot House: Roland Park residence with a professional chef’s kitchen and herb garden. 5 beds/4 baths. 2,656 square feet. Asking price: $799,000.

What: So, you’ve always wanted to be a chef and need a kitchen that will help you fulfill that
dream. Well, this is the house for you! This terrific house on Falls Road Terrace has a kitchen
designed by a professional chef for her own personal use. Not only is the chef’s kitchen
professional grade in every way, it is completely gorgeous!

The second-best thing about this house is that it completely light-filled and airy. It’s also
been recently renovated with high-end finishes. The large living room opens via two sets of
French doors to a wonderful screened porch. There are two sitting rooms, one with a
fireplace, just off the kitchen which is definitely the heart of this house.

The kitchen features a stunning La CornuFé Stove and Hood, a gorgeous white marble island
with sink, long, steel-topped counters, soft grey subway tiles and loads of windows
overlooking the gardens. The kitchen opens to a small deck with a pergola for shade. A path
leads from the kitchen to the back yard with a large herb garden, and to the detached two-
car garage and parking pad.

The bedrooms are beautiful and all feature custom lighting, including chandeliers. The
bathrooms have all been updated. The lower level is finished and can be used as an office or
playroom.

The partially-shaded, quarter-acre property is terraced and features a number of raised beds,
which are currently herb and flower gardens.

Where: Falls Road Terrace runs parallel to Falls Road across from Cross Keys. It’s mostly
hidden by lots of foliage, so is very private. It is very convenient to all of the assets of the
area, including Cross Keys, the two commercial areas on Roland Avenue, and numerous public
and private schools. Additionally, it is just minutes to the JFX, via Northern Parkway. And if
you love to walk, the paths of Roland Park are a great way to get your steps in.

Final Appraisal: As mentioned in the first sentence, the kitchen is really the star of this
house, although the rest of the house is wonderful as well! It’s not every day that a house
with a kitchen designed by a professional chef comes on the market, which it did earlier
today. This house will not be on the market for long, so if you are at all interested, snap it up
immediately! The listing for the house is here.
