What: A rarity in Fells Point, a double-wide townhome that has been both luxuriously and sensitively restored. It shows like a museum. The current owner’s taste is enviable, and while no expense was spared, she opted to retain the architectural features – narrow wooden stairs, deep window sills, red Georgia pine floors — that make it recognizable as an old Baltimore City home. Enter directly into the living room (no entrance hall), which opens to the dining room, with built-in bookshelves and new Brazilian cherry floors. The kitchen is small but inviting – marble countertops, French copper sink and a little table for two by the window. Kitchen overlooks the wood-beamed family room, which used to be the carriage house and has a working fireplace (there are three more working fireplaces in the main house). There’s a half bath downstairs, too. Second floor has two good-sized bedrooms, lots of long, elegant windows, and a nice full bath. Same on the third floor, but more authentic details up here. Good storage, actually generous storage, throughout. This is everything you could want in a historic Fells Point home.
