For anyone who has ever longed for the charm of an English-inspired country home within Baltimore City, 38 Warrenton Road in Guilford just might be the perfect cup of tea.

Built in 1924, this three-story stone and stucco home, embellished with gables and dormers, is open for viewing and priced at $825,000.

"All of the houses on this part of the street are good, medium-sized Guilford homes; not overwhelming, not mansions," said listing agent Frank Locke of Chase, Fitzgerald & Co.

With a 3,830-square-foot living space, the home has six bedrooms, three full bathrooms and one half-bathroom.

"There's a side-facing entrance at the front of the house with a small foyer and stairs to the right, which take you up to the first level, which has a den, living room, dining room and kitchen," Locke said. "The den is to the right with a box [window], bay [multipaned] window [and fireplace]. The living room on the other side has another box window and a wood-burning fireplace."

Sets of French doors in the dining room and living room open onto a stone patio with a retractable awning. This is a favorite feature of the current owners, and would be for anyone who enjoys outdoor entertaining.

A fully underground basement contains a one-car garage and a wine cellar.

Outside, there is plenty of on-street parking. The front lawn is banked with stone retaining walls and landscaping, and the backyard has three tiers.

Other amenities include wood flooring throughout and ceramic tile in the kitchen with breakfast bar. Appliances include a dishwasher, disposal, extra refrigerator and freezer, microwave, oven range and hood, and wall oven. There are also built-in bookcases, chair railings, wainscoting and crown molding. The current owners have installed two-zone central air conditioning and a new boiler.
