Hot House: 6029 Hollins Avenue, Baltimore MD 21210
Contemporary style home, cedar-sided, circa 1965, on a wooded lot overlooking Lake Roland. 3,984 square feet, with 4 bedrooms, 3 full and 2 half baths over multiple levels. Private, landscaped and wooded 1.27 acre lot with waterfall. sauna, two-sided wood burning fireplace in kitchen, two-level deck overlooking lake: $1,035,000
What: A unique twist on a classic lake house, perched high above Lake Roland, with views over the dam and across the lake from a cantilevered wooden deck wrapping the back side of the house. Big windows and cathedral ceilings let in the light, so the house feels sunny and shady at the same time. A 19×20’ great room leads out to the deck and features a two-sided fireplace – one side in the great room, one side in the kitchen — awesome space for entertaining. Master bedroom is on this level as well, with French doors out to the deck, a giant walk-in Califonia closet and walk-in glass shower plus Jacuzzi. Up some stairs is a more formal living room, a library, office and several more bedrooms. The multi-level nature of the house could be less that ideal for young children, although for a multi-generational family, the separation could be an answered prayer…There are many nice amenities, great storage and things look well-maintained. Hardwood floors, zoned heating and central a/c. Two car garage with entry to house.
Where: Traveling west on Lake Avenue from Roland to Falls Road, Hollins Avenue is on the right, just past the Boy’s Latin School. Number 6029 is one of a small group of luxury homes in a private circle leading off of Hollins Ave. You need to travel slowly in the circle, as the road is narrow, but it’s a pretty spot. Here, you’re a mere .7 miles from that great Baltimore summer triumvirate –Ivy Book Store, Pepe’s Pizza and Tropicool. Also about a mile from Whole Foods, and a mile and a half from both Roland Park and Rt. 83.
Why: Always dreamed of a house by a lake. Watch eagles soar from kitchen table.
Why Not: Afraid of bugs, night noises in forest.
Would Suit: Buyer looking for some peace and quiet. Hiker, birder, nature enthusiast.
NB: No direct access to lake from here, although a spunky kid could scramble down the hill. But it is a pleasant 3-5 minute walk, out the door and down the lane. Bring a fishing rod.
