The Baltimore Maryland Agent

A Rare Storefront Residence Sells in Mount Vernon



Hidden in plain sight in Baltimore's West Mount Vernon neighborhood stands a federal style 1806 Flemish bond brick building with a wooden storefront, at one time the site of a millinery good establishment. 



607 N. Eutaw St 21201



The old storefront had been transformed into a living room. The separate entrance for customers was no longer used, but the display window looking out onto Eutaw St remained intact.

Upstairs the the old storekeepers residence had been renovated into the modern era with modern conveniences including central air conditioning and replacement windows - wooden frame to keep with the standards of the commission of historic and architectural preservation

Some bedrooms had exposed brick walls, combined with the gas fireplaces the space felt historic without feeling antique. Note the beautiful hardwood floors throughout the property. Paired with the owners oriental rugs, the space was quietly luxurious.

The bathrooms were renovated in time for the sale of the property, this one was done by our friends at C&H Renovation + Restoration. In a house this age you need a delicate hand. You also need a contractor fully versed in topics that can impact properties from this era including lead paint.

Back outside, you'll see a brand new concrete parking pad. An ironic choice considering the owner lived here and enjoyed commuting to DC without ever owning a car. The old cobblestones in the alley are one of the few signs of age. Close your eyes and imagine the sound of horses clip-clopping along the street.

West Mount Vernon  is one of my favorite places to house-hunt in the city, it offers all the hidden neighborhood amenities of Seton Hill  and is walking distance from Antique Row / Howard Street.  This location also falls within the Bromo Arts & Entertainment District and that's how we were fortunate to have the opportunity to work with this property - we had learned about it while hunting for live / work spaces for an artist client. 


In Baltimore City any property that qualifies as rare can sometimes prove tricky during the appraisal process. What were good comps? As this home sold in the $300's by overall size and feature the property felt like a Bolton Hill residence . There's not always a lot of inventory in Mount Vernon in the $300,000 - $400,000 price range. Many of the properties trade at a higher price due to overall scale. Our Eutaw St residence measured just under 2,500 square feet. Fortunately as we had gotten in the practice of selling Bromo Arts & Entertainment District properties, many of the comps were our own sales.
