Home for sale in Bolton Hill showcases Georgian-style architecture

In the historic Baltimore neighborhood of Bolton Hill, 1530 Bolton St. is part of a group of five three-story townhouses of formal Georgian-style architecture.

The home, like the identical properties on either side of it, showcases its original 1920 arched front entrance and windows. It is on the market for $639,500.


The home's interior exudes the same sophistication as its solid brick exterior.

"What I love most about the house … is the fact that its original grand spaces and charm are still intact," said listing agent Kate Barnhart, with Henslee Conway Real Estate. "It still has all the grand details [such as] crown molding and three sets of pockets doors. Unfortunately, that's increasingly rare with so many big rowhomes being turned into apartments."

A vestibule opens to a hall, off of which is the formal living room. Beyond that, before reaching the formal dining room, a large reception hall sits at the foot of a winding staircase.

The home's large and renovated French country-style kitchen is equipped with appliances that include an imported Lacanche French range. A family room is adjacent to the kitchen.

Three bedrooms are on the second floor, along with two full bathrooms. An additional three bedrooms and one full bathroom are on the third level. There are 9-foot ceilings throughout the 4,320-square-foot home.

"This is an amazing house with great functionality," Barnhart said. "Every room has a purpose."
