Federal Hill standout sells to eager owners

Some sales are simply too good to pass up — even if you don't need whatever's being sold right now. This is how the new owners feel about the renovated Federal Hill townhouse they settled on last week for $660,000.

"We are putting it [up] for rent for one year before the new owners can move in," said Cindy Conklin of Prudential Realty, the real estate agent who handled the sale at 114 Montgomery St. "They found it a year too soon, but it was so perfect they wanted to get it now."

The "so perfect" deal is, in Conklin's words, "one of the few significant pairs of houses in Federal Hill. This home on the cobblestone block of Montgomery Street stands out, with [its] elegant ironwork."

The 1825 brick and stucco home showcases an interior of restored wood floors, moldings, a library and family room on the main level, and four fireplaces.

"The formal living room and dining room with fireplaces and a powder room round out the first floor with a three-level curving staircase," Conklin said. "There is a master bedroom and marble bathroom … on the second level, and two bedrooms and bath on the third level."

The townhouse's three stories, plus unfinished basement and a rear garden, have a total living area of 1,710 square feet. In addition to the rooftop deck with views of the Baltimore harbor, city skyline and beyond, the updated kitchen features maple cabinetry and stainless-steel appliances that include a disposal and dishwasher, an icemaker and microwave, and an electric range, oven and refrigerator.

"Everything has been updated with careful consideration to the [home's] historic elements," Conklin noted.
