At an asking price of $650,000, the Colonial-style house combinines1920s charm with updates for practical yet elegant living.

"I think the half-acre yard is a huge selling feature because it's tough to get that kind of level land in Roland Park," said Laurie Karll, listing agent for Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices PenFed Realty. "In the springtime, it turns into a magical backyard. A house this size most likely will go to a family, and [they] will be so glad to have such a lovely yard for their kids to play in."

The home's traditional layout boasts a large living room with a wood-burning fireplace, a spacious formal dining room with a bay window to let in abundant light, a renovated kitchen with stainless-steel appliances and granite countertops, a powder room, and a large, paneled den with a second wood-burning fireplace.

The lower level includes a finished recreation room, a full bathroom, and laundry, utility and storage rooms. Four roomy bedrooms are found on the second floor, along with two full bathrooms.

Amenities include wood flooring throughout, built-in bookcases, ceramic tile in the bathrooms, chair railing, crown molding, French doors and a curved staircase.

Outside there are a two-car, detached garage, mature plants, a deck and a terrace.

"This house has a great flow for entertaining," Karll said. "It is a very well-designed home."
