Arts and Crafts Cottage Just Listed In Roland Park: Beautiful Gardens, Sale Pending

0

Hot House: 13 Elmwood Road, Baltimore, MD 21210

Arts and Crafts-style cottage, circa 1922, stucco with slate roof and brick trim. Four bedrooms and 3.5 baths over 2,432 sq. ft. Original architectural details include oak paneling and trimwork. Large rooms with natural light, central a/c. Living room with fireplace, sunroom off dining room. Kitchen with island breakfast bar, custom cabinets, copper range-hood. Finished lower-level family room. Ensuite master with french doors to deck, connecting to study. Large third-floor guest room. Patio, extensive stonework, landscaped garden, one-car detached garage, 0.3 acres: $625,000 

What: On the market for just over a week, this house already has an offer and a sale is pending. But as they say in real estate, “there’s many a slip betwixt the cup and the lip.” Things happen, and a backup offer is always possible. It is certainly a house worth going out on a limb for — cozy and adorable, with updates done well and respectfully. Bigger than it looks from the photo, and more open that you would expect from a cottage, it is a house that could work as well for a family as for a couple or a single person. The buyer will, however, be faced with a common Roland Park dilemma regarding the fine old original oak paneling and trim — an issue that divides neighbors, couples and even entire families: To paint, or not to paint?

 

Where: Elmwood Road runs east from Longwood Road, which runs off Roland Avenue.  It is a long gentle downhill slope, which passes this house, crosses Edgevale and winds its way down to Falls Road.This house is about a 5-10 minute walk up to Eddie’s, the Roland Park Library and the schools that help make the neighborhood such a popular destination.

Why: Nice, long driveway in stone block.

Why Not: The one-car garage will not fit your GMC Yukon.

Would Suit: Architectural anglophiles looking for style, rather than size.

NB: The gardens have been lovingly created  by a native plant specialist, and will be low-maintenance as well as beautiful.

Palmer Lamdin Cottage in Homeland With Wolfgang Oehme Garden

1

 

tunbridge:front

Hot House: 224 Tunbridge Road, Baltimore MD 21212

Stone cottage designed by Baltimore architects Palmer Lamdin, circa 1928, with new slate roof, circa 2011. 2,640 square feet, with 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, wood-burning fireplaces.  Two-story timber-beamed living room, hardwood floors, custom millwork, casement windows with original hardware. Landscaped grounds with extensive stonework: $579,000

tunbridge:fountainWhat: A dream cottage. They rarely come more charming than this —  except maybe in the Cotswalds, where you’d have constant rain. Current owner, a Hopkins professor, lived here for 45 years, and commissioned the late, great landscape designer Wolfgang Oehme to create the woodland garden that surrounds the house, with its beautiful stonework, plantings and basin fountain. After meandering up the stone path, and through the heavy, arched front door, the living room is a surprise. It’s large, and in the scale of the house, feels huge, with a 18’ beamed  ceiling and a large fireplace. The rest of the house is upstairs from here. A step up to the dining room, and a few more to the kitchen. A short flight up to the master bedroom, with fireplace, master bath and walk- in closet. More bedrooms and a nice den on the second floor. Everything could use, but does not absolutely need, updating. The kitchen is quite small, but for one person or a couple, it would be perfect. It would be a shame to “blow out the kitchen” into the idyllic garden, as the architectural integrity of the cottage is a big part of its appeal.  There is a small unfinished basement, and a breezy covered porch, as well as central air.

Dish Calm: Eastern Shore Getaway Cottage In Waterfront Town

neavitt:front

Hot House: 23014 Carrollton Road, Neavitt, MD 21652

Cedar shingle, timber frame cottage, circa 2010, with water views of Balls Creek. 1,500 sq. feet, 2 bedrooms, 2 ½ baths, with three sleeping lofts.  Sleeps eight in total. Screened porch with water views, master bedroom and bath with deep tub and separate shower, kitchen with wood-burning fireplace, concrete counters and stainless appliances, two car parking, storage shed with canoe/kayak storage,  on .32 acres: $410,000

What: Dish Calm is waterman’s slang for calm water. It’s the name of this picture perfect, year-round getaway cottage, built by designer/builder David Sutphen for his own use. Solidly constructed (40-year architect grade roof shingles, top of the line double-hung windows), with delightful architectural details throughout, it fits right in, both size-wise and looks-wise, to this charming little town, but it offers a big step up from the usual shore cottage.  From the front door, you see all the way through to the breakfast room at back and the water beyond. Living room, with fireplace, is to the right. The kitchen is spacious and cozy at the same time, with a raised hearth fireplace. Custom cabinetry and exposed shelving painted Seasalt blue. Fun fact: heart pine floors throughout the house come from the old Waverly post office. Around the corner, a built-in desk and book cases lead to the high-end mudroom, with its 6’ long farm sink. There’s not a bit of wasted space here, which is part of its great charm.  A nice sized master bedroom and a second bedroom are upstairs, along with the sleeping lofts, guaranteed to wow any kid worth his/her salt. A GE remote security system allows you to control heat and central a/c from your mid-week home or office.
