This delightful house dates from the late 18th century, and was renovated in the 1980’s. The front rooms are a comfortable 19 feet wide, a rarity amidst the typical narrow Fell’s Point row houses. Another unusual feature is that the front portion of the house was originally constructed of cypress planks, and was then covered with German-style clapboards about 100 years ago. The original 16” cypress boards can still be seen on the side of the house. There are less than a dozen frame houses remaining in the neighborhood.
A rear addition was added in the early 20th century. A striking feature of the kitchen/dining area is the abundance of natural light, admitted by the two-story atrium topped with a skylight. This illuminates the center of the house and diffuses through the curved interior glass-block wall of the second floor bathroom. A charming rear courtyard offers plenty of private outdoor space for dining and relaxing.
The interior is enlivened by colorfully painted walls and numerous fascinating paintings and artifacts collected by the owners during their world travels. This stunning historic property provides an idyllic retreat from the everyday routine, yet sits just steps from the waterfront and the myriad attractions of Fell’s Point, Harbor East and the Inner Harbor.
