With its quasquicentennial just around the corner, this stone and shingle marvel of craftsmanship, in the style of Carpenter Gothic, sits tucked amongst the mature trees, at the corner of two beloved Roland Park streets.
Crossing the front yard, admiring the impressive geometry of the pointed, cedar shingled gables and parallel ridge lines, framed by two staggering Jacobean chimneys, a Dutch door leads, through a paneled foyer onto a central landing where hard pine floors spread towards all points of the first floor: a living room with corner fireplace and sightlines of both front and back porches, as well as the kitchen and a formal dining room with an exquisite tryptic of diamond paned leaded windows and hard pine planks elegantly finished with a herringbone joined surround.
From the dining room, a traditional pantry, sun-filled from the diamond window, original cabinetry still hanging, leads to the kitchen where a contemporary cement counter wraps the corner amongst the custom cherry cabinets below and the repurposed original cabinets above.
A discrete laundry room sits just behind the kitchen. In the rear of the first floor, beyond the staircase, a stately paneled den, with its own full bath, could easily serve as a first floor bedroom in which yet another bank of leaded windows overlook the back yard.
Winding up the stairs, amongst more leaded glass, the second floor landing puts one outside the shared full bath, a white-tiled update, with dual-head shower and pedestal sink, feels like a timeless compliment to the home. Three bedrooms line the hall, each of unique personality by way of their specific window placement, more re-built, diamond paned and leaded glass.
The third floor finds a bright fourth bedroom. Another full bathroom has been creatively configured within the sloped attic offshoots. Off the bedroom, a large, bright, dormered attic space has endless potential or just it’s perfect for storage.
Outside, the yard is a blank canvas. The corner lot feels secluded amongst the green and with the original hardscaping, a circular flagstone patio and a former water feature waiting for new life, the potential is obvious.
