On the Market: 4417 Norwood Road, Guilford

A while ago, I wrote about the houses on Norwood Road/Norwood Court. While Palmer & Lamdin designed several of the houses on Norwood Road, they designed all of the houses on Norwood Court, which is really just the end of Norwood Road.

As the listing mentions, the house is in the "classic English cottage" style, which is more or less true. These houses employ a typical Palmer trick - backing up on to a main road, in this case Old Cold Spring, which used to be "only" Cold Spring. Similar courts appear in Homeland as Paddington Court, and Middleton Court. It keeps the houses separated from the traffic on the road and forms a cohesive group of similar houses. 

From the listing: 

Do you want to live in the nicest neighborhood in the City? Welcome to Guilford and a Picture Perfect home abundant in elegance and sophisticated modern comforts.

With the charm of a classic English cottage {Helloooo??? Palmer & Lamdin!!!}, the unique character will wrap you like a hug when you step inside the door.
Take a minute to enjoy the natural sunlight that fills the glass-wrapped sunroom. Every room is generous in space. 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms are complimented by the extras within the delightful package.
A breakfast nook that could be an office, the mud room, the sturdy and vintage "Butlers pantry" and the "Sleeping porch" converted to a walk in closet.
Gleaming hard wood floors, a wood burning fireplace, glass door-knobs and stunning millwork including a gracefull staircase that must be appreciated throughout. A huge basement awaits your finishing touches. A new slate roof (good for another 50 years) waterproofed basement and drainage and painted exterior have the big ticket items covered. Central AC AND Radiator heat- the best of both worlds The best kept secret is the glorious landscaping in the front and the fenced back yard that will surprise and delight you for many months of the year.
Enjoy the lifestyle of living in Guilford and being walking distance to the delightful Sherwood Gardens- visit the tulips in April.

The listing is here.
