Downsizing Up: The Elusive Smaller, Better House

0 Written by: | Tuesday, Jun 07, 2016 11:15am

 

Hot House: 1020 St Georges Road, Baltimore MD 21210

 

1020:exterior

Classic contemporary style house, circa 1970, well maintained, with new wood shake and shingle roof. 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, large living room with fireplace, family room with fireplace, leading to kitchen with granite and stainless steel appliances. Large master bedroom suite. Hardwood floors. No basement. Central a/c. Courtyard entrance off circular drive. Private, 1 acre landscaped property with mature plantings and fine stonework. Large outdoor entertaining areas. Two stone outbuildings. Stone gazebo and patios overlook swimming pool: $875,000

1020:pool

What: This is in many ways, the ideal place to spend your golden years. Or any years really, but the single level and smaller size make it especially attractive to a downsizing couple looking for a relatively easy keeper (except for the pool guy) and some low maintenance outdoor space. In this case, it’s the outdoor space that sends it to the top of our list for desireability. Number 1, the pool (grandchildren love pools and you might swim a few laps yourself). Number 2, it’s spectacular for outdoor entertaining, with a patio off the kitchen and another just a few steps down, poolside. A stone outbuilding could be the pool house or as it is now, a small studio. The pool is not new, but it’s ideally sited, in sun, with a little dappled shade and low maintenance plantings. Number 3, The rooms are large, and have lots of light and views of a lush green surround. One of the bedrooms is used as a den now, but the house is certainly big enough for visitors. This, and its private, yet central location make it this week’s winner.

Where: St. Georges Road is in Poplar Hill, west of Roland Avenue and north of Northern Parkway. It is a coveted North Baltimore address, quiet and tree lined, with grand houses, widely spaced. 1020 is towards the end of St. Georges, the even-more-quiet end, where the road takes a sharp right and becomes a private lane. There are nice neighbors. Its just over a mile from here to Eddies of Roland Park, library, post office, and a little further on to Petit Louis, Johnnys restaurants. Easy access to 83 via Northern Parkway. 10 minutes to JHU and near all city attractions.

Why: Smaller, but way better.

Why Not: You are probably not done at 875K. It could use some cosmetic work. The kitchen has been updated inexpensively, and it shows.

Would Suit: Couple looking for classy, practical city downsize with outdoor space — not so easy to find.

NB: Huge new washer and dryer in laundry room are fire engine red.
