country cottage full of charm

2 bedrooms

1 full bathroom

Here it is: your country cottage in the city! Charm abounds in this c.1904 semi-detached home tucked into the Evergreen neighborhood of Roland Park. The front porch and heart pine floors welcome you, and you find yourself surprised at how large this petite house allows you to live. The kitchen and bathroom have been painstakingly remodeled with upgraded finishes. The kitchen features superb lighting and cabinet space, beautiful granite counters, and an adjacent combination pantry/laundry room. In the bathroom, every inch of space was used wisely and the home’s original character was kept intact with exposed brick and the original door and hardware. All you have to do is look at the curve and bevel of the custom-designed vessel sink countertop to know that this artisan contractor knew how to make the most of the space without it feeling cramped. The house itself is lovely, but the real piece de resistance is the yard. As you step outside, your pace slows and you feel yourself relax, whether you are laying in a hammock with a good book or entertaining guests with an al fresco dinner or cocktail. Both front and back yards are landscaped with shrubs and perennials that return year after year. Finally, you will appreciate 2 car parking at the rear of the lot, just past the garden gate. Leave your car parked and walk to several local restaurants and conveniences. Come fall in love with your urban country cottage!
