On the Market: 7110 Bellona Avenue

Another P&L on this spring market.  One of Palmer & Lamdin's later houses, just before WWII when a lot of private commissions had dried up. 

Here's the listing:

Nestled into a private and scenic Ruxton/Woodbrook site, 7110 Bellona Avenue, offers updated spaces for charmed living.

Over 4,700 square feet on this nearly one acre cherished location make this Palmer Lambdin (!!!) design a prized find. Tradtional living and dining rooms and a well appointed kitchen are complimented by a family room with wet bar.

Flow from the living room to the bricked floor screened porch and take in the tranquil vibe of the expansive rear garden.

Five bedrooms and five full baths are so accommodating.

The detached Amish barn-style garage is finished with ceramic tile, and easily evolves into an all purpose room for entertaining -

think ping pong matches and long table dinners with no worries about the rain. A rare opportunity. 
Fun fact: my prom date and long-time friend, the architect Paul Gorman, designed the front gate, the detatched garage, and the two-story addition to the left of that. Paul is the reason I became interested in architecture, specifically Palmer & Lamdin. There was a P&L house around the corner from the house where he grew up and I was always facinated by it. 
Of course, it looks completely different today!
