6 bedrooms/5 loos and a massive porch. 3,935 sq. feet. Asking cost: $895,000.

What: When you consider of common Roland Park residences, they normally have cedar shake

As you tactic the dwelling, you first see the huge L-formed front porch, with its

initial tub, and a different with a shower.

The basement is partially concluded with a significant storage closet for out-of-season goods.

refreshing to see a sympathetic renovation that has held a lot of of the particulars that
make these houses so distinctive, and which stand the check of time. The listing for the
house is listed here.
