Chic, contemporary shines in Mount Washington

If the idea of owning a chic, contemporary home, high on a hill in Baltimore's historic and colorful Mount Washington neighborhood appeals to the village dweller in you, then 2705 Rockwood Ave. is worth a visit.

"One of the home's many assets is its convenience to downtown Baltimore, whether driving or taking public transportation," said Cummings & Co. Realtors listing agent, Cara Fabian. "And yet there is a strong feel of suburban neighborhood living."

This 1955 rancher is built of brick and features a driveway leading to an attached carport.

An open interior layout boasts wood flooring throughout. A complete lower-level renovation contains a sitting room and recreation room.

"The current sellers have done a lot of upgrades in addition to the basement and installation of wood flooring," Fabian said. "They opened up a couple of walls and completely updated two bathrooms."

Contemporary translates to warmth with a wood-burning fireplace in the living room and the soft peach hue of the walls in many of the rooms. The home's sleek and functional kitchen glistens with dark granite countertops, white cabinets, tile flooring and stainless-steel appliances. Large windows allow for sun-filled rooms beyond the slate floored foyer.

"Here is a house that is definitely in move-in condition," Fabian said.

Comprising more than 1,300 square feet, the house's living space includes an open living room and dining room, three bedrooms, two full baths and two half-baths. Amenities include custom window shades and blinds, oversized windows, updated appliances, central air conditioning, Kohler fixtures and a private backyard with a large patio area.
