Hardwood floors, original architectural features.  Central a/c.  1.44 acres with detached garage, mature plantings, swimming pool: $799,000

What: A big, old, welcoming house on Lake Avenue that sits well back from the road. It gets a lot of admiring glances, both for its big leafy yard and the gracious proportions that practically invite you onto the porch for a glass of ice tea. At the moment, it’s a little shabby inside, but the BSO has expressed interest in using the house for its 2017 Baltimore Symphony Decorators’ Show House. Besides being merely flattering, it has the potential to be a huge windfall, as some of Baltimore’s leading decorators will gladly remove old wallpaper (which there’s plenty of), paint, plaster and more to transform these empty rooms into AD-caliber spaces at their expense.  They just need to know by February, so they can start selling tickets.

McKeldin Fountain

Another public fountain in Baltimore has joined the endangered list.  

First, the McKeldin Fountain at Pratt and Light streets was threatened with demolition, by downtown business interests who consider it an eyesore and want it taken down. Now a second downtown fountain, by the same designer, may disappear from its current location.
