Property Description

This fabulous semi-detached Georgian Colonial in Roland Park sits on the north-bound side of the boulevard with a view onto the lush landscaping and rolling hill that visually and acoustically separates this one side of University Parkway from the other. Beautiful sunlight floods this exceptional home. A long driveway and two car detached garage offer plenty of parking. A stunning front door with beautiful ironwork welcomes you home as you walk into the lovely foyer. Lovingly maintained and wonderfully updated this classic home boasts gorgeous historic detailing. True pride of ownership shows at every turn. The living room features a wood burning fireplace with a mantel and custom glass doors. The gourmet galley kitchen offers a gas cooktop, two wall ovens, granite countertops, a breakfast bar, and a gorgeous view to the rear yard. A small half bath is located in the rear entry/mudroom. The dining room is quite large with more views of the gardens. The delightful sunroom boasts fantastic sun and garden views from three directions. Toasty in the winter, cool in the summer, and streaming with light, this is the sellers' favorite room! (Air conditioning is from the vent by the door to the living room but it cools the sunroom beautifully). Upstairs you will find a spacious landing, three nice sized rooms, and one recently renovated gorgeous hall bath. The primary bedroom, large enough to easily handle a king bed, has two walk-in closets and opens to the porch over the sunroom. The front bedroom has glass French doors and built ins. The third floor features two generous bedrooms, a large storage room that could easily function as a home office or small bedroom., and a beautiful updated hall bath. One of the only homes on University Parkway with a finished space in the lower level, this home has a fun recreation room, quarter bath, laundry area, and workshop area. The rear yard is exceptional with lush landscaping, a fishpond, specimen trees, a shaded patio with a new fence, and oodles of room for children to play. Privacy abounds. When the sellers' children were growing up, this was the gathering place where the children's friends came to play ball. There is no alley behind this house, so the treed area between blocks is abundant with wildlife! The long paved driveway was a venue for a gorgeous catered summer party- see the photos! The home has been professionally insulated and beautifully maintained. The architect owners added thoughtfully placed recessed accent lighting in many places. The gas water heater was new in 2022. There are two zones of central air. The floors are oak on all three floors, although the third floor is carpeted. The kitchen door and third floor windows are Marvin. The fireplace and electrical have been inspected and made ready for the next owner. (All exposed knob and tube wiring was replaced. Boiler flue was lined with stainless steel. Seller provided MANY maintenance receipts to assure the new buyer that the house has been exceptionally well maintained! See Documents.) Interestingly, the mail is delivered and the trash is removed at the rear of this house so you will never have to roll trash cans anywhere! The location offers EASY walkability to restaurants, museums, farmers markets, the Roland Park walking paths, playgrounds, schools, etc. Sellers prefer to occupy until approximately May 5. Blink and you will miss this gem!
