Imagine a Baltimore rowhouse so deep that it sits on two parallel streets and, consequently, has two addresses.

Mike and Matt Knoepfle, brothers and partners in Building Character, a firm that renovates city houses, have taken on their largest project to date at 2110 Cambridge St. and 2117 Fleet St. The 3,600-square-foot Canton property with five bedrooms, four bathrooms and plenty of entertaining space on multiple levels has an asking price of $889,900.

"The Cambridge Street side is the formal entrance" said Nick Waldner, listing agent with Keller Williams Realty. "That's where most of your guests will enter. They will walk into a very nice living room with exposed brick and a gas fireplace.

"The opposite side of the house, on Fleet Street, is a two-car tandem garage. You will enter on the Fleet Street side straight into the kitchen. This is designed for the homeowners' entrance because when you're coming home from work, you want to be able to walk right in and unload groceries."

One step down from the living room is a gallery leading to an open, private brick courtyard equipped with surround-sound, ceiling fans and a rough-in for a gas grill. There is also a master bedroom suite, sitting area and a tiled bathroom.

Upstairs from that level is a state-of-the-art kitchen and a second guest bedroom suite with outdoor access to two large rooftop decks, along with a third bedroom. Continue up the stairs to the third level to find an entertainment area (counted as one of the bedrooms) with vaulted ceiling, wet bar and access to the decks.

"This is a great entertaining area," said Waldner. "There's a full bath up there and pocket doors if you want to turn it into a bedroom."

On the lower level of the Fleet Street side is a fifth bedroom with a fourth full bathroom.

Other amenities include hardwood and tile floors, molding, custom blinds and a gourmet kitchen with breakfast bar, island, a six-burner stove and granite countertops.

"This is definitely an interesting house," Waldner said. "It's not like anything else you've seen in the city."
