Bohemian chic in Reservoir Hill. Featured in A Guide to Baltimore Architecture by John Dorsey as a
quintessential example of Queen Anne's (Eastlake-style) architecture, this townhome on Mount Royal
Terrace has been updated for today's lifestyle while retaining the elegance and details of the original
home. Lovingly restored and updated by professional artist owners, much of the original wood trim in
the home has been stripped and thus the warm wood beneath can be enjoyed for generations to come.
Historic hardware, doorknobs, hinges, and other small details in the home were painstakingly searched
for and installed in addition to the updated modern cook's kitchen. The generously proportioned
bedrooms on the second-floor feature lovely historic details and treetop views. The upper level was
once a separate apartment but is now home to a bedroom, bathroom with clawfoot tub, a workroom
with sink, and a large light filled artist studio. The flexible third floor layout can be used as a primary
suite or separate guest suite for long term visitors. The upper level is also perfect for a roommate or an
Airbnb suite for extra income. Many practical modern updates can be found in this artistic abode
including insulated replacement windows, “cool roof”, and recently installed attic insulation. The front
exterior of the home is the best of the historic and modern and boasts an original historic Krug ironwork
roof cornice. A new standing seam copper roof (with 100-year guarantee) tops the bow front windows.
Additional upgrades include a French drainage system with two sump pumps and moisture barrier and
new gutters. The walk out basement is a treat for bike storage, gardening supplies and more. The fully
enclosed rear garden has alley access so a parking pad can be added at a later date. Close to Maryland
Institute College of Art, University of Baltimore, Druid Hill Park, and Baltimore's Light Rail.
