Chef Cindy Wolf's Roland Park home on the market for $1.22 million

For the amateur cook, for the professional chef or even for a lover of great Colonial architecture and beauty, 302 Club Road in Baltimore's Roland Park neighborhood is a dream come true.

Built in 1905 and featuring five bedrooms, three full bathrooms and five fireplaces, the home is owned by Cindy Wolf, an award-winning Baltimore chef and restaurateur. The three-story mansion is now on the market for $1.22 million.


"This house is a beautiful home that I have lovingly restored," says Wolf, co-owner of several restaurants in Baltimore, including Charleston in Harbor East. "I've painted, added historic [touches] to the house, and did a complete and total kitchen renovation."

To call the space a "gourmet kitchen" is perhaps an understatement. Below wood-beamed ceilings is a workplace outfitted in the manner of the great chefs of Europe, complete with antique Italian marble countertops. For entertaining friends and family at her home, Wolf chose a top-of-the-line range imported from La Cornue, a French company that makes some of the finest ranges in the world.

Wolf focused on the rest of her home with the same attention to detail that she put into the kitchen. Beyond a leaded-glass front entrance, a hallway features a crystal chandelier that splashes light onto the reclaimed wide-plank wood flooring found throughout the home.

The formal living room is awash in natural light. Two pairs of French doors open to a side veranda overlooking gardens. The formal dining room features recessed lighting.

Distinctive wood carving embellishes the stairway to the next two floors where, as in the first level, the ceilings are 10 feet high.

Many homes have built-in wine coolers in the kitchen or dining room, but Wolf's home includes a 48-case wine cellar and billiards room that introduces rustic charm.

Other amenities include custom cabinetry, a stone hearth in the kitchen and stainless appliances.

The house features a washed stucco exterior and sits on a .35-acre lot.
