For those who want a piece of Baltimore history, an English country-style, two-story stone cottage in Guilford is on the market for $759,900.
Built in 1930, the home with five bedrooms, three full baths and two half-baths has curb appeal and then some. It exudes a charm clearly intended by its designers at the architecture firm of Palmer & Lamdin.
The home has been maintained meticulously. The vestibule opens to an arched front door with side windows. Original hardwood floors are throughout the first and second levels. Original moldings and ceiling medallions with chandeliers give the home elegance.
A kitchen remodel kept the integrity of the house but added modern conveniences such as the GE Monogram appliances hidden behind custom-made cabinetry that matches the rest of the cabinets. Cooks will appreciate the butler's pantry with a refrigerator and wine cooler. A built-in banquette is an added bonus, ideal for guests that like to congregate in the kitchen.
French doors lead from the living room (with a fireplace) to an enclosed sunporch with built-in bookcases. Care was taken to match the custom-made Roman shades adorning the windows to the paint on the walls.
