Located on one of the most coveted streets in Fell’s Point, this fully renovated, thoughtfully reimagined historic home marries elegance and modernity with character and charm. Built in 1780, this property of distinction affords the marriage of luxury living with unparalleled lifestyle. The spontaneously convivial neighborhood of Fell’s Point is truly a community, with direct access to the waterfront promenade, year-round farmers market on Broadway Square, proximity to many outdoor festivals and events, and easy walking to amenities like the flagship Whole Foods (3 blocks), upscale shops and restaurants, and unique locally-owned businesses in both Fell’s Point and Harbor East.
A meticulously renovated historic façade with a large picture window and original solid wood front door welcomes you into a fresh and open floor plan with 2,124 square feet of living space. The living room is centered on a wood burning fireplace with a salvaged art deco mantel. High ceilings, decorative picture molding and white oak hardwood floors extend throughout this living space and invite you onward to the dining area and kitchen beyond.
Large windows and glass doors bring the sunshine and leafy garden vibe into the modern, streamlined kitchen. Extra storage is tucked into every corner of this thoughtfully designed chef’s kitchen, with a built-in banquette for a comfy cup of morning coffee or visiting with friends while cooking dinner.
Step outside, from the dining or kitchen areas, into a charming courtyard with bespoke planters, shaded by a mature Japanese maple tree. The patio has ample room for entertaining and grilling, has a handy potting shed, and there is a private walkway, sally port, providing access directly to Shakespeare Street.
Newly positioned stairs graciously lead upstairs, with architecturally salvaged spindles and custom carpet runner. Step right into the spacious primary suite, a soothing oasis extending the depth of the second floor. A closet lined dressing room leads to an elegant double vanity bath with an oversized glass shower enclosure and two large, frosted windows that invite in the natural light while maintaining privacy.
The second floor front room currently functions as a home office, with an ensuite full bath that incorporates vintage and modern tile. This room also has a large closet and the laundry room. While the current design leaves this room open as a multi-functional space, the owner has designs for enclosing the space into a traditional bedroom suite, should a future owner have that need.
A skylight is centered over the stairwell to the third floor, and this sunny spot is home to many cultivations. Step to the left into another generously-sized bedroom with two large, south facing windows, beautiful hardwood floors and two closets.
Head to the rear of the third floor and you’ll find the fourth bedroom - another suite - with deep closets lining one entire wall, a well designed full bath with a shower, two large windows, hardwood floors and a door leading to the roof top deck.
Enjoy a uniquely Fell’s Point rooftop view of cozy gardens and historic roof lines from a pergola shaded top floor deck. It’s a truly special place to enjoy a relaxing evening with friends and family.
