This week, we found five homes in Baltimore — or just over the line in Baltimore County — that are unique and affordable.
Some of these homes might sound like a series of listings on a high-priced, luxury real estate agent's agenda. But in reality, these homes are all listed for under $300,000.
Here's an editor's pick of some notable homes in the Baltimore metro area that you can get at a more affordable price than those featured in our Desirable Spaces series:
Terrace level condo in Mount Vernon
12 Mount Vernon Pl., Baltimore
The skinny: The big front steps welcome you home to this conveniently-located home. The one-bed, 1.5-bath home has more than 1,000 square feet overlooking a common area.
West side brick Colonial
845 Glen Allen Drive, Baltimore
The skinny: This brick Colonial is an eye-opener on Baltimore's west side, featuring a large, landscaped yard with wood floors and a finished basement. It has 2,600 square feed to boast, with five bedrooms.
Row home in a unique color
440 Saint Mary St., Baltimore
The skinny: This row home is located just west of Mount Vernon, and has all the comforts of a home that's been in the neighborhood for a full century — with all the updates of one boasting a recent renovation. What caught our eye: the floors, exposed brick and the unique exterior.
Two-story condo at 'The Consulate'
529 Charles St., Baltimore
The skinny: This two-story condo offers a unique living experience, inside "The Consulate" — a 10-unit building overlooking the Washington Monument in Mount Vernon. The building dates to 1900, but the unit has lots of updates.
Open floor plan in Parkville
2938 Grendon Ln., Baltimore
The skinny: From the outside, this home doesn't look like one that features an open floor plan or a master suite. But inside this 50s-era home, you'll find four bedrooms and three full bathrooms.
