Historic Woodberry is a niche neighborhood in Baltimore's hot hot hot 21211 zip code. Woodberry is also referred to as "TV Hill" due to the number of news stations established in this area. This location is hidden in plain sight, tucked away behind Druid Hill Park & Clipper Mill.

It's less than one mile from Hampden.

I'm pleased to offer 3637 Malden Ave Baltimore MD 21211 for sale. This property is a first time buyer delight in historic Woodberry. Built in 1920 and priced at a mere $153,000, you can move right in. The owner has taken great care of this home.

The full exterior of the property was painted in 2011. The front garden was xeriscaped with natural rock edging. I had no qualms about listing this home in January because Malden Ave is always one of the first streets to be plowed when it snows - those hard hitting news anchors and weathermen need to get to WJZ TV news headquarters at the top of the street. There is ample  street parking for guests and off-street parking for two cars in the backyard.

The front porch is neat as a pin. The blue door provides a contemporary flourish to the c.1920 residence. Note the double pained vinyl, UV coated, tilt-out easy clean windows. The windows were replaced in 2010 and come with a 25 year transferable warranty.

The floorplan on the main level is traditional, yet open, allowing you to configure the space to suit your needs. The hardwood floors have been refinished. The full interior was freshly painted in 2013. Come summertime you'll appreciate the central air conditioning and four upgraded ceiling fans that the owner has installed on the main and upper level.

The kitchen has a smart layout. You can't even see the refrigerator in this picture because it is unobtrusively located near a large built in pantry (also not shown). Good circulation makes all the difference in a kitchen. New lino-tile floors were installed in 2010.

I was so impressed when I first encountered this backyard. What a private serene space! Of course as it is the dead of winter, you'll have to use your imagination and picture a greener space when Spring gets here. New fencing was installed in 2013. As a Realtor I am always encouraging my clients to invest in quality fencing - it makes all the difference in the world. The owner has left posts and hardware to hang a hammock. Tranquility awaits you.

Upstairs at 3637 Malden Ave you'll find the central bedroom has been converted into open space. This takes full advantage of the skylight at the top of the stairs. No need to worry about roof maintenance, the roof was full replaced with bitumen rubber in 2011, and it comes with a transferable warranty through 2016.

As shown in this picture, we are including the drafting table with the house. Woodberry is an ideal community for live / work spaces. The basement at our property has been used as an artist studio, the owner improved the electrical system and added plugs in the ceiling which are handy for working with tools. You'll also find a full laundry in the basement.

Need room to expand your work beyond your house? A close proximity to the property you'll find Clipper Mill, which is a wonderful community of creative professionals.

The Clipper Mill community includes; the Woodberry Light Rail Station, The award winning Woodberry Kitchen restaurant, and some of Baltimore's best residential contemporary architecture in the Overlook at Clipper Mill development.

3637 Malden Ave is a first time home-buyer delight in Baltimore's historic Woodberry neighborhood. With as little as 3.5% down, mortgage payments on this property still amount to less than $900 per month. Without a doubt, this home is a winner.

Available for preview by appointment.
