0 Written by: | Tuesday, Jun 28, 2016 11:45am

Hot House: 112 E. Lake Avenue, Baltimore, MD 21212

Southern style Colonial house, circa 1885, frame construction with side porches and front portico. Shingle roof. Six bedrooms, two full, two half baths, 4,281 sq.ft over three stories. Entrance hall, living room with fireplace, dining room, large kitchen, den with fireplace. Hardwood floors, original architectural features.  Central a/c.  1.44 acres with detached garage, mature plantings, swimming pool: $799,000

lake:front

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.
