The home at 203 Lambeth Road in Baltimore's Guilford neighborhood comes with a surprise — a completely renovated, contemporary interior behind a traditional brick exterior.

"Here is a house for the most discriminating buyer who wants the best of both worlds: a functional suburban interior flow within the shell of a Guilford home," said listing agent Cindy Conklin with Prudential Homesale YWGC Realty.


Located on a double lot totaling 0.82 acres, the 1986 home features a symmetrical front elevation with a second-story balcony. There is also a terrace patio with floodlights at the rear of the home.

The 4,853-square-foot interior features five bedrooms (one is a first-floor suite), five bathrooms and a powder room. Hardwood floors are found throughout the open layout. There is one gas fireplace in the paneled library and a second in the large family room. A center hall foyer welcomes guests into the combination living room and dining room, while the gourmet eat-in kitchen features a breakfast bar, an island and top-of-the-line appliances — including a double oven and cooktop.

There is also a large recreation room on the lower level.

"The owners [installed] the best laundry room I have ever seen in my life," Conklin said. "There are two sets of washers and dryers."

Other amenities include ceramic tile baths, double vanities, built-in bookcases, a built-in china closet, draperies, rods, an automatic garage door, and exterior custom windows and shutters.
