$5,000 SELLER ASSISTANCE Experience the timeless charm of an original Roland Park home. Situated just one tree-lined block from Eddie's Market and Starbuck's Coffeehouse, 5023 Roland Avenue is walking distance to an abundance of top notch private and public schools, as well as two of Baltimore's favorite spots to wine and dine. Location, location, location. Four beds, one and a half baths, plus existing rough-in for another full bath on the third floor, make this home the ideal size, price, and location for a new family just starting out or anyone at the other end of the journey looking for a peaceful place to retire. The first floor features an entry hall with half bath, an eat-in kitchen with an adjacent walk-in pantry, a dining room and a living room with an open-ended central hearth, and a beautiful original oak staircase to the second floor. On the second floor you'll find three bedrooms with a covered porch off of the back bedroom, a full bath with a claw-foot tub and shower, and a dressing room. The third floor penthouse is a teenager's dream! This upper level also has a separate dormer/storage area with plumbing and electric already installed to the basement, and can easily be converted to a spacious third floor bath for about $25-30K. A pleasing view of the gorgeous yard space from the kitchen conjures a feeling of being in the country. Watch the bunnies, chipmunks, and songbirds while sipping your morning coffee, or catch your morning show on the wall mounted tv tucked discretely amongst the cabinetry. Stainless steel appliances, granite counters, a tin ceiling, the richness of hardwood floors with the eat-in kitchen and pantry combine aesthetics and functionality. The thoughtful and efficient layout of the kitchen, with its natural flow to the outdoor patio and indoor dining room, make the space unique and a pleasure to use for day to day meal preparation as well as entertaining guests. The central hearth opens to both the living room and the dining room, and houses a Vermont Castings wood stove with a glass door. The chimney has been rebuilt and has a new liner as well. A full-sized washer, dryer, and laundry sink are in the basement, along with a ton of storage. The basement has zero water problems; bone dry and air tight with brand new replacement windows. The stone foundation has been completely rebuilt and is absolutely bulletproof- it cannot/will not leak. All new gutters, downspouts, and roof on the outside, along with new heavy gauge schedule 40 PVC French drains to street . There is a wrap around front porch with swinging bench seat, and the back yard is picket-fenced. The Stoney Run Trail is just a couple blocks away for hiking and biking . Every square inch of the house and garage exterior has been refurbished, primed, and painted. Weathered cedar shingles have been replaced and the beautiful old windows with the bubbly glass have all been reglazed and restored, and are in working order. Even the garage is charming, painted with delightful colors and upgraded with lighting and 20 amp outlets. The newly paved three car parking pad is the cherry on top!
