An extraordinary home for the sophistocated and discerning buyer. This classic Williamsburg Colonial is nestled away in a court on one of Guilford's most iconic streets. The home and grounds are masterfully maintained and preserved. 7+ bedrooms, 5 full 3 half bathrooms, the grand room sizes one expects from a stately home in this neighborhood. Ultimate caterer's kitchen provides all you need for the finest in entertaining. Architectural details throughout this house inside and out truly make it one of a kind. The front facade is a duplicate of Ratcliffe Manor in Talbot County while the front door is a copy of the Hammond-Harwood House in Annapolis. All of the stone used in the windowsills as well as the front and back steps were taken from the same quarry that furnished stonework for Monticello and Mount Vernon. The shutters are duplicates of the original ones at Homewood House. The pavement and terrace bricks all came from a Colonial home on Old Frederick Rd built in the 1740's. All of the interior trim is wood and every detail was copied from various celebrated Colonial homes in Maryland and Virginia with the exception of the Palladian window in the stairway. That window is a duplicate of the one used by Robert Adam, a famed English architect from the late 18th Century. The library is paneled in the same detail as the original look from the Bordley-Randall house in Annapolis. The main stairway came from the first building used by Johns Hopkins University. The floors throughout the home are from the first theater built in Baltimore circa 1745. Throughout the house, the locks, with only a few exceptions, are original Colonial hardware. Each chair rail is different, all copied from notable Colonial homes. Once in a lifetime opportunity to own a piece of Baltimore history. The square footage listed in the tax record does not include the basement which features wine cellar, club/billiard room, workshop and the piece de resistance, a squash court, currently being used as an indoor golf training room. There is an estimated 1200+ sq feet of finished space in the basement. Two car garage that also has heated parking pad/apron. This is truly one of Guilford's finest homes.
