Open House Sunday, July 7th 11am-1pm. Color and Design intersect with Architecture and History in Bolton Hill. Unexpected surprises and pops of color await at each turn. Love city life in this literal work of art at 1421 Park Avenue. Situated on a coveted block of Park Avenue with its leafy tree canopy, this circa 1875 Victorian townhouse, one of three matching homes built originally as area doctor's residences, beckons with its two-story bay window, classic architectural molding, and quintessential marble steps leading into a carved, intricate set of double doors, which open to a marble entry with Andy Warhol wallpaper. First impressions matter, and there you'll face a second custom-made stained glass door, leading into the runway-esque hall. Stress-free living with a two car garage, rare in Bolton Hill, and a four stop elevator (easy to move things in, out, and around!), make this a forever home. The main level has a large living room with double marble mantels, built-in bookcases, a powder room (lined in Andy Warhol authorized Queen Elizabeth wallpaper), a sweeping curved staircase, with its infamous dragon mural, a galley kitchen and handsome dining room with fireplace and french doors opening onto the rear porch, where grilling year long is made easy. The second floor has a large double family room, with state of the art motorized screen and projector, with dueling marble mantels, and an adjoining space used as an office. At the rear is the primary bedroom suite with primary bath and laundry and ample closet space, a vintage soaking tub, and a large, glass-enclosed shower. The third floor has two bedrooms, a generous walk-in closet, and a hall full bath with additional room for future expansion. Light reigns supreme here, during the day watch as the mood changes as the sun sets, and at night, as the vast assortment of recessed and pendant lighting (including many iconic designs) create even more moods. Modern living and safety, too, have been considered, and the house comes recently wired with new ADT systems, Google cameras at all entries into the home, Nest thermostats, and new Shade Store solar shades and black out shades, motorized in the master bedroom. As a bonus, the lower-level has a flexible one bedroom private apartment with a separate entrance from the garden, which can be connected to or blocked from the rest of the house via the elevator. Gardeners will delight in the walled rear garden and patio for twilight dinners and parties. Featured in a recent design spread in Baltimore Magazine, the house is a mix of modern design and comfort, coupled with historical charm, elegance, and craftsmanship. Like the best art, this home is truly one of a kind. Bolton Hill is a tight knit neighborhood of people who know their neighbors, who love architecture and love city life! and Enjoy an impromptu glass of wine with neighbors on your porch, a game of doubles tennis at Bolton Hill Swim and Tennis Club, neighborhood dog meet-ups, bookclub, garden club, and more. Notable restaurants such as CookHouse, Alma Cocina Latina, Foraged, Le Comptoir du Vin are a quick jaunt. Grab coffee or lunch at On the Hill Cafe or Llama's Corner, or a show at the Meyerhoff Symphony, The Lyric, or an art flick at The Charles Theater. Annual events include Festival on The Hill, Community Yard Sale, Concerts in the Parks, Easter Egg Hunt and John St Park Pumpkin Carving. Hyper convenient to the soon to be newly reformed Penn Station where you can get the MARC Train to DC or jump on Amtrak to Philly and NYC. Take the Light Rail to see an Orioles or Ravens game, or to catch a flight from BWI Airport. Convenient to I-83 and I-95 for car lovers.
