It’s Roland Park but you could be in the Adirondacks from the looks of this dark shingled beauty. With its barn-like silhouette, copper gutters and punched out shutters, it seethes rustic charm. Gorgeously mature landscaping can be enjoyed from patios and porches. The interior of the house is also a nice surprise. Rather than the dark and small rooms commonly associated with this cabin-like architecture the room here are bright and big. The best of both worlds. Sure, a little updating is needed to bring it to its full potential, but its mostly just paint and maybe a new kitchen floor? Just promise me not to mess with that wonderful open pantry. It is essential to the vintage feel of this place. Visualize: A lot of antiquing. It would be a crime not to incorporate some old rustic pieces in here.
I think I jinxed myself. I’m pretty certain it was all that talk of spring springing that did it. Trawling the open house listings for this week’s column, a whole lotta nothing special came up. Anyway, I only have one lonely, but lovely, listing to recommend for this Sunday. Happy looking.
