Imagine living in a five-level townhouse in Spain where the cobblestone street leads to an ornate cast-iron front door, and iron window boxes overflow with brightly colored flowers. Now picture this house on a pier overlooking Baltimore's harbor.
That image is the reality at 603 Ponte Villas North, now on the market for $1.06 million. The house is one of 88 in what the builders planned as a Mediterranean-inspired community, and classic architectural features bear that style out. Precast concrete and stucco form an arch over the two-car garage, as well as the trim on a double Cantera steel front door framed by metal flower urns and a pair of coach lamps.
"From the first level all the way up to the rooftop, this house has a distinct designer's touch," said William Ganz, the listing agent and broker with Ganz Exclusive Real Estate. "There are three balconies in the back of the home — one on the second level off of the kitchen, one off the third-level master suite [and] a balcony off of the fourth-level family room."
The home's 3,732square feet of living space features four bedrooms, three full bathrooms and one half-bath. The master suite, with a huge bath and sitting room, fills the entire third floor.
An elevator at ground level rises to the rooftop deck with 360-degree views of the harbor and city.
Amenities within the home's traditional layout include wood floors, ceramic tile baths, a gas fireplace in the dining room, a breakfast bar and kitchen island. Built-in bookcases, double vanities, draperies and rods, fireplace equipment and crown molding are additional interior features.
For an additional fee, the home can also be purchased as a turnkey with all of the furnishings included, Ganz said.
