On the Market (Again): 214 Longwood Road

This house was on the market several years ago, and now it's on the market again.

It is one of several that Palmer designed, including one for himself, along Longwood Road in Roland Park. They are chalet-style houses, set into a steep hillside, with the roof-line along the street level. 

Here's what the real estate ad has to say:

Tucked away close to a cul-de-sac's end, this Adirondack chalet type cottage, designed by noted architect Edward Palmer, invites you to experience the best of both worlds – a retreat in the trees and the convenience of being just a short stroll from Roland Park's shops and amenities.

The entry level has a large living room with wood-burning fireplace along with two spacious rooms equally well suited as bedrooms or offices/dens and connected by a full bath. The true highlight of this level is the large screened porch with hardwood floors - just imagine listening to birds in the mornings and owls in the eve! 

Down a flight of craftsman style stairs, you'll discover a large dining room and kitchen along with a powder room, butler's panty and family room. The top floor boasts a large primary bedroom, an additional bedroom and full hall bath.

An important feature of the property is undoubtedly the stone staircase that leads from the street to the front entrance, adding character and a touch of adventure to this delightful abode! Priced to allow for improvements, don't miss the chance to make this charming house your new home.

The house needs some work, which accounts for the reasonable price.

And hopefully, who-ever the buyer is will have the sense to keep the original cabinets in the kitchen and pantry.
