Those in the market for a Victorian home with a wide, wraparound porch will jump at the chance to tour 412 Hawthorne Road. in the city's Roland Park neighborhood. With an asking price of $685,000, this turn-of-the-century gem has been beautifully maintained and is ready to move into.
"The current owners have put $100,000 into the house in the last 21/2 years," said listing agent Ashley Richardson, with Long & Foster real estate. "They love the house and the location, but they have to go out of state."
The house, made of shingle and painted a rich blue, sits on a 0.2-acre corner lot with a level, fenced-in backyard and an elevated front yard. Updates include a new roof and a rear porch, patio and pergola area for entertaining.
The interior has a traditional floor plan that features a 16-by-10-foot foyer. All the rooms have hardwood floors, while the living room, kitchen and family room have built-in bookcases and crown molding. The dining room has a built-in china cabinet.
Other features of the three-story, five-bedroom home include ornamental fireplaces in the master bedroom and living room, an updated kitchen with granite countertops and a breakfast room with pantry. A dishwasher, disposal and a front-loading washer and dryer are among the appliances available. The home's three full bathrooms have ceramic tiling. The house also has central air conditioning.
"What appeals most to me is the amount of natural light that comes in on all four sides of the house," Richardson said. "It's a comfortably sized home, and the light just makes it feel warm and cozy."
