On the Market: 5917 Bellona Avenue

This is one of the later houses in the P&L catalogue, having been built in 1940. It's also different from most of their other houses because it's in the Art Moderne style, a significant departure from their usual quirky classicism. This house is similar to the building that Lamdin (or perhaps new partner, Charles Nes) designed as their offices on St. Paul Street and the former Carl's Hair Salon in Mt. Vernon. 

From the realtor's website:

Semi-Detached 3 bedroom, 2 bath in Old Homeland/Belvedere area. Palmer & Lamdin designed gem with Art Deco influences. Large living room with fireplace, dining room and open kitchen with breakfast bar.
Hardwood floors, updated bathroom and large lower level with additional full bathroom and family room area.
White-wash painted and sealed exterior with great back yard including fire pit area and large rear deck. Rear alley access to detached garage and fenced rear yard.
Walk to Hip and Cool Belvedere Square for food, drink and shopping, The Senator theater and grocery stores. Easy access to public transit to enjoy everything Baltimore has to offer!

This house has been updated in a very trendy manner, but it looks like most of it can be easily undone (see "interior barn doors" and "random plank siding"). 

There are several P&L houses designed in a similar style, including one on N. Charles Street, just north of Northern Parkway, and another one on N. Charles just south of Bellona Avenue in Ruxton. 

Someone should have painted this house before it went on the market. It looks like the paint is peeling, not crisp and white.
