A renowned architectural historian described the design aesthetic in 1880's Baltimore as reflecting "a unique and exuberant eclecticism, not so much a style as an approach to style." This 1886 Bolton Hill townhome has remained true to its' eclectic and stylish roots. Lovingly restored and updated by it's creative owners over the span of 50 years, this home seamlessly incorporates a mid-century modern clean-line aesthetic into a Bolton Hill Grand Dame without diminishing any of her original charms. Marvel at the carved wood paneled vestibule as you enter into this magnificent home. A grand staircase with elegant carved details cannot fail to impress. As you enter the front parlor you can simultaneously experience both a modern openness and a traditional historic Victorian townhome floor plan. The middle sitting room is the perfect spot for today's audiophiles. The custom cabinetry features a turntable and record drawers for your vinyl collection. The original dining room has been transformed into a sitting room with direct access to the rear deck and stairs leading to the courtyard garden. On the garden level, you will find a bespoke custom mid-century modern galley style kitchen that opens into a family room/ dining area. Exposed brick walls offer a wonderful contrast to the white kitchen cabinets. Proceed past the laundry room and descend to one of the most impressive unfinished basements in all of Baltimore.
