Asking Price Disclosed For Michael Phelps’s Fells Point Townhouse

0

The asking price for Michael Phelps’ home is $1,420,000. Last month the Fells Point townhouse owned by the Olympic gold medalist and Baltimorean went on the market with a “by request” asking price. The $1.4 million ask means Phelps expects to take a loss on the three bedroom, five bathroom residence:  he bought the house for $1.69 million in 2007. The four-level property has a rooftop deck and overlooks the water. Interested?

Recreational Residential Real Estalking: A Towson Townhouse, A Canterbury Charmer

6502 Abbey View Way, Towson
$1,250,000
4br/3.5 ba
Maybe a little over the top? What won’t come into question is the designer’s devotion to “going all the all the way” in this Towson townhouse. I might describe it as “gratuitously glam”, but if you’re looking for the maintenance-free high life I wouldn’t completely dismiss this one.

Federal Hill Townhouse

225 East Montgomery Street

$ 729,000

4 br/3.5 ba

From the outside there is a lot to like about this pretty Federal Hill townhouse. The tony Montgomery Street location is primo and the charming front and back outdoor spaces seem like they would require just the right amount of work (which to me means only one sunny Saturday per season).  Inside, things are less clear. While far from new (1992?), the majority of the finishes appear to be very well done (the polished wood built-ins almost give a yachting vibe) and are a testament to the ability of quality materials to stand the test of time. Conversely, there is about a quarter of the decor that, while newer, is, um, well…a hot mess. (Sorry kitchen, bathrooms and doors, I’m am referring to you.) I love the idea of the new buyer bringing all the components up to the highest level. Visualize: Enjoying the expansive views from the roof deck as REM’s “Automatic for the People” (yep, it was 1992) plays in the background. 

 

 

 

 

Roland Park Apartment 

4300 Roland Avenue, #301

$279,000

2br/1 ba

I’ll start by admitting that I am a sucker for these 1920’s Roland Park apartments. Something about them reeks of intellect and culture. It is no surprise then that I am smitten with this Roland Avenue residence. Housed in an architecturally exquisite building, it is a virtually untouched gem of an apartment. Check out the fireplace mantle, high ceilings,  sun room, moldings and original windows for reasons to fall in love with the place. Don’t check out, however, the incongruously renovated kitchen. Hopefully, they left the bathrooms alone. Visualize: Sipping tea as you work on your thesis for your Hopkins Anthropology doctorate.

Trophy Loft in Canton

2

HOT HOUSE: 1023 South Curley Street, Baltimore 21224

An 1880 Federal style townhouse, recently resurrected as a glamorous, industrial style loft space.  6,800 total square feet  (including 2,800 square feet of unfinished garage). Three bedrooms, two and a half baths, with hot tub, roof deck and open fireplace on three levels: $1,100,000.

What: Behind the polished, brick façade of an old Canton townhouse, lies this huge, ultra-hip loft — completely and beautifully finished, with custom designed staircase, flooring, lighting and furniture.  Offered for sale by Drew McQuaid, for whom it was “a batch pad,” this property appeared last August in the Wall Street Journal’s “House of the Day.”  Downstairs at street level is the unfinished garage, which looks like it could hold three cars and then some.   Upstairs is a sleek, confident lair — masculine in feeling, but warm and refined in taste. High-end everything. Steel and concrete furniture, which is more comfortable than it sounds, sets the tone for a cool, laid-back aesthetic. The top floor contains the bedrooms, including a large master bed and groovy bath, as well as the sliding doors that lead to the roof deck and hot tub. Views are nice, especially at night.  Heating is natural gas and solar.

Where: South Curley Street is a quiet side street just off pleasantly bustling O’Donnell Square in Canton. Number 1023 is six blocks south of Patterson Park and three blocks north of the waterfront. It’s a great location — just a dash over to the bank, dry cleaners and a wide range of bars, from the Claddagh to the Elvis Lounge and Looney’s. St. Casimir is your local parish.

Why:  1.  It’s a house  that can easily accommodate your “big” furniture. 2. An historic tax credit makes your taxes a shockingly low $3,775 a year — at least for the next five years (as of 2011).  3. There are just not many properties this stylish in Baltimore.

Why Not: 1. You are intimidated by 20’ ceilings. 2. In a million years, you would never use a  hot tub on a roof.

Would Suit: Daniel Craig.

NB:  You are not really on, or even very near, the water here, which for some people is the appeal of the neighborhood.

Brooklyn In Baltimore: A Townhouse In Federal Hill

0

Hot House: 225 E. Montgomery Street, Federal Hill, Baltimore 21230

Two story town house in Federal Hill, circa 1900, newly renovated. Unusual in having front and back yards plus a separate carriage house with apartment.  Four bedrooms, three and a half baths, with rooftop views over the Baltimore harbor: $729,000

 What: Steps from Federal Hill Park, just off the busy streets of this popular neighborhood, sits this modern town house. The winding brick path behind the wrought iron fence is a nod to its history. The sleek garage (no desperate hunt for street parking here) and interiors bring it right up to 2011 — 2,080 square feet of urban oasis. The living room is long and narrow, like all Federal Hill houses, but architecturally kind of interesting. The stairs have been pushed into the back of the house to get more light and space. Supporting the stairs is a single large round column, faced in blond wood. There is also a living room fireplace with a contemporary blond wood surround. The kitchen is at the back of the house, up a short flight of stairs, and modern, with new appliances. View of the private stone patio in back, and the carriage house beyond.  Second-floor master bedroom suite is large and cleanly designed, with good built-in storage. Master bath has unusual salt and pepper tiling, big glass shower and separate whirlpool tub. Two additional bedrooms, both have built in storage. The fourth bedroom is above the carriage house, a posh guest set-up with a full bath. Roof deck on the house has great views of Federal Hill and the harbor. Hardwood floors, throughout, central a/c basement wine cellar.      

 Where: E. Montgomery Street is the first street up Federal hill, behind and parallel to Key Highway. 225 is between Battery Avenue and William Street. Across Federal Hill Park is the Visionary Arts Museum. Nearby are the Cross Street Market, Regis (the legendary Federal Hill hangout) and bars, coffee shops, shopping. All this, and free public transit. The area is well served by the free Charm City Circulator bus.

 Why: The urban vibe.  Historical and hip. Busy streets, lively shops, the butcher at Cross Street Market. There is a strong neighborhood feeling here, with lots of people who have been here for years, plus new families and singles – the glorious rainbow, etc. And …the house is shelter mag ready, you won’t need to do a thing.   

Would Suit:  Someone looking for the Brooklyn in Baltimore. For you guys, it’s either here or Canton.

 NB: Architects might wish previous owners had spent a few more thousand to have the decks done in metal, not wood.  There’s not much school choice around here, but  Federal Hill Elementary gets increasingly good reviews.

 

 

 

Federal Hill Find Mixes New with Old

HOT HOUSE: 227 Grindall Street, Baltimore, 21230

Open plan, architect-designed Federal-style townhouse in prime Federal Hill location. Two thousand square feet plus roof-top deck: $485,000

What: Three bedrooms, three baths, on three stories, over 2,000 square feet in all, with a two story atrium that sets a light and airy tone in this 2006 townhouse. Brick and stucco exterior blends surprisingly well with its older neighbors and a big bay window in front with garage doors underneath makes it distinctive, in a good way. Garage is a boon for both parking and storage.

The modern open-concept design means:

1. A sleek eating area. 2. A chef’s kitchen with stainless steel backsplash, large breakfast bar and premium appliances and 3. The atrium, with cool metal railings leading around and up the stairs. Downstairs, a large 13′ x 18′ sunken living room with fireplace opens onto a protected terrace big enough for tables and a grill. Upstairs are three bedrooms–master has a walk in closet–and access to the roof-top terrace, with stellar urban views, especially at night. Hardwood floors downstairs, carpet upstairs, all in pristine condition. 

Where: Grindall Street is two blocks south of Federal Hill Park, and intersects with Riverside Avenue.  Nearby is Digital Harbor High School, among all the other attractions of Federal Hill–the park, the harbor, etc. Your local will be Porter’s, the popular Federal Hill pub. 

Why: This is a pretty good-sized house by Federal Hill standards. The light and space of the modern interior makes a nice change from older townhouses. Roomy enough for a (smallish) family. Also, walkability rating is 98.

Why Not:  Rooftop views: awesome. Views from interior windows: not so much. Third floor also feels like a bit of a let down after the downstairs. 

Would suit:  Chic urbanites of any age.
