Majestic at the Mergenthaler! Stunning & historically significant, the Mergenthaler mansion is a Baltimore City historic landmark which offers a neighborhood feel within the historically designated neighborhood of Bolton Hill. A limited number of units available, this FIRST FLOOR unit at the Mergenthaler house offers small community, condo ownership with easy access to both the quaint neighborhood and the greater city amenities through all nearby mass transit. A rectilinear red brick rowhouse of the late Victorian era, the home has three major historical points of significance: 1) built by Joseph Hopkins in 1875, nephew of the noted philanthropist, Johns Hopkins, 2) later occupied (1894-1899) by Ottmar Mergenthaler, of which the house gets its name, the inventor of the linotype which revolutionized printing, and 3) William L Marbury, US Attorney General for Maryland. A classic vestibule with preserved tilework, an original staircase, and high ceilings create an inviting entryway which evokes the architecture found throughout the home. A palatial pocket-door flanked parlor is dramatic and grand, yet welcoming enough for the contemporary dweller. High ceilings, plaster walls and baroque mirrors create a backdrop for living in a carefully crafted home. A walk out porch with grand height, a vintage dumbwaiter, and private latticework provide extra space for private 3 season living, reading, and dining. Jefferson, transom, and bay windows offer end of group natural light throughout. A galley kitchen, two bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms, and storage provide plenty of room for living. You truly can hide away, but be close to city living. Terraces instead of traffic? Lush gardens without the yard work? Be inspired and infused by the area's architecture or art scene.
