c. 1850 home in historic neighborhood
4800+ square feet
4 car garage
One of the original 7 Union Square homes (and a perennial favorite on the Union Square Christmas Cookie House Tour), this gracious c.1850 semi-detached is available for the first time in more than 40 years. This Grande Dame boasts over 4,800 square feet with 14 rooms, containing in total 9 fireplaces with original mantels, 6 of which have been converted to gas. There is also a rare detached 4-car garage and completely enclosed side and rear courtyards with brick pavers and planting beds. The main level includes a vestibule with original double-door entry and Palladian window; an entry hall with original staircase and banister; double parlor with pocket doors and 12-foot ceilings; formal dining room; eat-in kitchen; laundry room/mudroom; and powder room with marble-topped vanity. The second level contains three rooms at the front of the house - two bedrooms plus a sitting area that would convert nicely to an en suite bath or walk-in closet - and at the rear, there is a walk-in closet, study, sunroom with balcony and back staircase, and 2 full bathrooms with clawfoot tubs. The front section of the third level is similar to the second level, with 2 large bedrooms and a smaller room that could be a nursery, den, or another bathroom or closet conversion. The back of the third level contains a large room currently used as a billiards room, but listed as a master bedroom thanks to the large bathroom with jetted tub and separate shower that adjoins it. The basement has been partially improved and makes a perfect man cave; there are visible stone and brick foundation walls as well as archways that add to the character. There is also an enormous amount of storage in the basement, so the garage can be reserved for your car collection -- what a luxury in the city! Union Square has an active community association and is known as one of Charm City’s friendliest neighborhoods. It is super convenient to the downtown business district, area hospitals, and rail systems for commuters to DC or NY.
