Downtown industrial chic doesn’t get any better than this Little Italy condo. Huge (3,084+ square feet huge) open spaces, soaring wood ceilings and wall-to-wall windows all conspire for some big-city impact that is not easy to come by in Baltimore. Even harder to come by in these factory conversions are details that live up to the drama. Not a problem here. The space is fitted with the finest appliances, cabinetry, bathrooms and light fixtures that money can buy. And while I appreciate the current owners county/city contrast, how much fun would it be to decorate this place with a more updated approach? Break out the Restoration Hardware catalog (fyi, if you haven’t peeked for a while, it’s changed dramatically) and really go for it. I’m seeing over-sized taupe linen upholstery, gigantic metal chandeliers and one of those reclaimed-wood coffee tables that covers an approximate quarter acre. This is one of the few homes in Baltimore where you can get away with it. Visualize: Baby grand piano shopping, even if you never play it will be super cool at your parties.
