Handsome Georgian Townhouse in Historic Bolton Hill. This exceptional, end-of-group townhouse occupies an entire block. The house is 4454sqft of living space (Tax record is incorrect. The house was measured by an appraiser.) Designed by a well-known interior designer who has presented at multiple Decorator’s Showcase homes in the Baltimore area. Originally built in 1876, the home underwent an extensive Georgian style renovation in 1919. A one of a kind loggia and deck are hidden away from street view with expansive space for outdoor entertaining. The main entrance welcomes you through a large Georgian door with a palladian leaded glass window into a formal entry hall. The home is light-filled by a Southern exposure through four large bay windows. The sweeping cantilevered staircase immediately impresses. The large formal living room offers multiple seating opportunities, a carved wooden mantel marble, and a gas fireplace. The formal dining room continues to wow with a sparkling crystal chandelier, mantel with marble surround, and gas fireplace for you and your guests to enjoy during intimate gatherings. Just beyond the dining room is a large breakfast room with a fully equipped serving kitchen with custom Maple cabinetry with seating for three at the granite peninsula. Further back is another full gourmet kitchen with custom Cherry cabinets, professional appliances, granite countertops, and backsplash. This is a chef’s kitchen designed for two chefs in mind. Enjoy the cozy Inglenook next to the kitchen while your meal is cooking. The second floor has one large bedroom with another bay window and an ensuite bathroom in the front. In the middle of the house is a lovely living/family room and a wood-burning fireplace with a marble surround. At the rear of the second floor are the owner’s music room with a wet bar and en-suite full bath. This space would also make an ideal additional bedroom or guest suite. This leads into the gracious outdoor deck and loggia with skylights. When the home was originally built, this area was designed as the children’s play space. There is nothing like this space in Baltimore, anywhere. Enjoy ample (580sqft) outdoor covered and uncovered seating for additional entertainment. The third-floor front has another spacious bedroom with an en-suite bathroom. At the rear of the third floor is the primary suite and primary bath occupying the remainder of the third floor with ample closet space and additional den or dressing area, with your own private laundry. The lower level is unfinished but was used as office spaces by the current owner and catering staging area kitchen. The lower level has both an exterior entrance and an interior entrance through the house. With 1478 sq ft of space in the lower level, there are many possibilities for this space including additional finished living space in the future, storage, studio, or workshop.
