On the Market: 8 Bishop's Road

I have "known" this house for many years, as friends lived along Bishop's Road and I'd drive by it frequently. It's really a gorgeous house and was designed in the "Spanish" style by Edward Palmer in 1920. 

From the realtor's listing:

Designed by famed architect Edward L. Palmer, this elegant south facing stucco home has been beautifully expanded and renovated and is ready for its next lucky steward.

Custom iron gates offer entry to the light filled center hall which is flanked by the living and dining rooms.

The sunroom overlooks the oversized stone patio w/ gas-burning fireplace and newly landscaped flat back yard. Through the butler's pantry to the newly renovated kitchen which opens to a large breakfast room and laundry/mud room.

Atop the stairs is a charming office through which the Juliette balcony with iron railings is accessed via French doors.

The primary bedroom wing has his and hers baths, a room sized walk-in closet and an additional bedroom/study/nursery. Two additional bedrooms and renovated hall bath round out the second floor. The finished third floor offers additional private lounging space.

Combining expert workmanship and great style, 8 E. Bishops is a special place to call home. The listing is here.

On the Market: 203 Chancery Road

Honestly, 203 Chancery Road is everyone's favorite houses in Guilford. It sits at the intersection of Greenway and Chancery Roads, and is just completely charming! I have written about it before now, but it's just come on the market and I thought I'd share some interior shots. 

From the real estate listing: 

Understated elegance, form and function sum up this architectural Guilford gem located a stone’s throw away from Guilford Gateway Park. Everything about this home is unique, from its glass enclosed vestibule

to the generous sized living room that flows on to a stunning sunroom,
to the gourmet eat-in kitchen with its high-end appliances, to the sumptuous dining room and the butler’s pantry equipped with its own dishwasher and beverage refrigerator. This home is an entertainer’s delight yet isn’t overwhelming.

Upstairs, the primary bedroom with its vaulted ceiling makes quite the statement and the other bedrooms are ample in size and well-spaced out.

Lastly, the club basement is a world unto itself with a billiards room, a retro bar and space for watching movies or just hanging out. This lovely home has hosted many luminaries in the past and has a history that is both rich and diverse.
In easy reach of the amenities of Charles Village, Hopkins Homewood campus, Union Memorial, the BMA, the Rotunda, and so much more. Guilford living at its best.

I love when real estate listings have floor plans because you get the understanding of how the house is laid out and the flow of it. Luckily, this one does.

I guarantee this house is not going to be on the market for long! If you're interested, here's the listing. And here is the piece I wrote for Baltimore Fishbowl.
