Perfection exemplified. Absolutely stunning stone Guilford home situated only 1/2 a block from famed Sherwood gardens. Impeccably updated to preserve the historic character beloved by so many but with top of the line modern finishes including a new state of the art kitchen with attached family room, updated bathrooms, thoughtfully reconfigured living spaces, completely waterproofed and modernized basement, 6 zones of HVAC, instant hot water and smart home features including surround sound speakers, locks, thermostats and smoke detectors- all on a flat .35 acre corner lot with mature trees and beds of established gardens. Enter the bright foyer and find wide plank original hardwood floors, beautiful hand painted wallpapered walls, intricate 1920s millwork and a stunning original front door surrounded by an arched spiderweb leaded glass transom. A newly remodeled Stephanie Gamble kitchen greets you next with a large center island, marble counters, subzero & Bosch appliances, an incredible white LaCornue gas range, designer gold hardware and plumbing, custom built cabinetry, Italian imported porcelain tiled floors, surround sound speakers and the most charming eat in kitchen nook ever created. A true chef's kitchen with loads of natural light, you can cook up a feast while watching your children play in the yard, admiring your garden or watch the sunset behind the newly redeveloped Guilford reservoir. Unusual for Guilford, the kitchen flows directly into a charming family room with built in shelving, gas fireplace, imported Italian porcelain tiled floors, large windows, stone walls, bead-board ceilings and has direct access to the back yard and patio. From the family room, enter the formal living room where original details abound- wide plank hardwood floors, intricate wood detail framing each window, custom built in shelves and cabinets all centered by a newly remodeled wood burning fireplace with gorgeous white marble and wood mantle. The formal dining room is large enough to host formal dinner parties but also warm and inviting with original wainscoting, custom wall paper and a stunning hand painted silver ceiling. Climb the beautiful staircase to find a remodeled master bedroom with arched doorways, walls of windows, custom Schumacher reed wall paper, designer lighting, a large fully lined walk in cedar closet, laundry room, custom built in cabinets and a fully renovated en-suite bathroom with dual vanities, soaking tub, and glass framed standing shower. Across the hall find more arched doorways leading to a home office with custom built in desk, two additional bedrooms with more original charm, detailed millwork, loads of natural light and a renovated full bathroom. On the 3rd floor find bedrooms four and five with classic Guilford dormers, excellent views of the neighborhood and a large full bathroom with built in dry bar. The basement has been fully waterproofed with tall ceilings and pocket lights, it’s currently a perfect place for extra living and storage space but could easily be finished further with minor cosmetic work. The large .35 acre lot is flat and fully fenced with a classic stone patio and lovingly landscaped flower beds. There is a stone garage with smart key remote entry and additional 2 car parking just outside. The property is perfectly situated to enjoy all of Guilford's amazing amenities- 1/2 block from Sherwood gardens and backing directly to the newly redeveloped Guilford Reservoir with waking and biking paths. Also enjoy great proximity to Hampden, Roland Park and Charles Village with some of the best dining and shopping in Maryland, a quick commute to John’s Hopkins, i83, downtown or to anywhere in the county!
