What: This enchanting “Honeymoon House” is nestled in a cozy spot at the bottom of Beechdale Road, just before it intersects with Edgevale Road, and overlooks the grounds of the Baltimore Country Club, which will soon become parkland. The cottage was named “Honeymoon House” because it was allegedly built by parents for their newlywed child.

As you come up the winding path, you enter the home through an arched front door. The living room features a large stucco fireplace, French doors leading to a large sunroom, and a beautiful diamond-pattern painted floor. The open plan dining room is adjacent to the kitchen which is accented by a backsplash custom-made by a local artist. The kitchen-dining area has French doors which open onto one of the home’s three patios.

The second floor features a primary bedroom with an en-suite bathroom with a custom marble tile, a double vanity, both a rain-shower and a handheld shower, and a custom glass shower partition. There are two additional bedrooms and a second bathroom, plus an additional room that could be used as a home office or a playroom. On the third level, there are two more bedrooms and another bathroom.
The lower level has been finished with ceramic tile floors, an office/family room, a laundry room with granite counters for folding clothes. Included are a front-loading Whirlpool washer and dryer.

Additionally, there is a garden room with a wet bar that leads to another of the patios and a private driveway.

As you move outside, there are three patios, a secret garden with a beautiful moon gate, a flat area perfect for playing, and a fishpond.

Where: This house is on one of the nicest streets in Roland Park, with lots more open space than houses. It’s adjacent to one of the numerous footpaths in the neighborhood, perfect if you like walking and want to get all of your steps in! It’s close to all of the commercial areas on Roland Avenue and Cold Spring Lane and a short walk to Cross Keys. Additionally, there are numerous public and private schools within a very short drive, or a slightly longer walk.
