Roland Park shingle residence restored with home’s primary allure

101 Woodlawn Highway, Baltimore.

Warm Home: Typical Roland Park shingle property Architect-owned and updated with
6 bedrooms/5 bogs and a enormous porch. 3,935 sq. feet. Asking rate: $895,000.

What: When you imagine of classic Roland Park houses, they usually have cedar shake
shingles, a slate roof, a great porch and elegant aspects. This property on Woodlawn
Highway has all that, as well as a sympathetic update by the current operator, 1 of Baltimore’s
renown architects. For the owners, the renovation was about erasing the 50 decades
that the household had been a three-device rental and returning the house’s original
integrity.

As you technique the household, you initial recognize the significant L-formed entrance porch, with its
beadboard ceiling and the graceful arches which are echoed throughout the house. As
you enter the home, you are welcomed by a compact vestibule with an arched doorway
and a coat closet! You then transfer into the light-crammed entry corridor with beautiful authentic
hardwood floors and a staircase with a window seat, perfect for curling up and
examining. The staircase also options unique wood urns on quite a few of the newel
posts.

A massive residing room with a wood-burning fireplace, significant home windows and designed-in lighted
bookcases is to your left. To your suitable is a official eating home with the primary
pocket doors, as effectively as doors foremost to the rear deck.

To the rear of the dwelling is an updated kitchen area which features Asko, Sub-Zero and
Wolf appliances as properly as a superb centre island and a breakfast nook. As with
numerous of these Roland Park homes, there is a total pantry off of the kitchen area, which the
entrepreneurs neatly stored intact all through the renovation. The kitchen area opens to a deck which
overlooks the roomy backyard with a tailor made treehouse and parking pad.

As you transfer upstairs, you will see the most important suite with a walk-in closet and an en-
suite rest room showcasing a steam shower. There are two far more bedrooms, as properly as a
den/home office/review and a just lately renovated bathroom on the 2nd floor. On
the third flooring, there are 3 additional bedrooms, such as one which retains the
primary tub, and a different with a shower.

The basement is partly finished with a significant storage closet for out-of-year merchandise.
Although the listing mentions a man-cave for the basement, I am at this time boycotting
that expression, so won’t mention it. The basement opens on to the again lawn.

Where: This household is positioned on the south end of Roland Park, effortless to Miss
Shirley’s, Pekara European Bakery and of training course, Alonso’s! It’s just a hop down Chilly
Spring Lane to the JFX, and up Roland to Eddie’s, the Pratt Library and numerous
educational institutions.

Remaining Appraisal: With so lots of of the attractive Roland Park homes getting wholly
gutted and the first aspects currently being torn out for the most recent fashionable point, it is so
refreshing to see a sympathetic renovation that has kept a lot of of the aspects that
make these houses so distinctive, and which stand the exam of time. The listing for the
dwelling is right here.
