Harborview townhouse sells for $1.1 million

Many Marylanders live on the water, but the owner of this contemporary townhouse in Baltimore can walk out on three balconies and be over the water.

The five-level home, built in 2006, sold for $1,125,000, about $100,000 less than the asking price.

"This home was fun to sell because it showed so well and had excellent views of Baltimore's Inner Harbor from every level," said real estate agent William J. Ganz III, who listed the townhouse at 647 Ponte Villas South. "Combined with the fact that it is located in the private, gated Pier Homes at Harborview community, it was just a matter of time before it sold."

On the market for just over 100 days, the house, with 3,732 square feet of open living space, was the model home for the community.

The townhouse offers an open floor plan with a family room off the kitchen, a master bathroom steam shower, custom window treatments, crown molding, hardwood floors and granite countertops. An attached two-car garage is directly accessible from the pier in front of the home.

Its upgrades include a five-level glass elevator, a gourmet kitchen, a rooftop wet bar and deck (with a hot tub) for relaxing under the stars or enjoying fireworks displays over the Inner Harbor.

Amenities include 24-hour security, a resident manager and security gate. The external building maintenance and lawn maintenance allow for carefree, chore-free living enhanced by an indoor and outdoor pool, common grounds, exercise room, concierge and a jogging/walking path.

"This sale was a great indicator that the market was coming back in Baltimore," Ganz said.
