An enticing example is 3823 Roland Ave Baltimore, Maryland 21211. Offered for sale at $299,999 by guerilla realty, this 1574 +/- sq. ft. property is sited on a choice corridor of one of the best streets in the neighborhood.

Sustainable is sensational in Hampden, throughout the home you'll enjoy bamboo floors, reclaimed wood windowsills,  low voc paints, and low-e Thompson Creek windows. 




kitchen at 3823 Roland Ave




The kitchen features butcher-block counters and an energy star dishwasher. The warm gray walls, cream cabinets, and stainless appliances enhance the space. Some Hampden renovations are done with trendy finishes that can seem ill-suited to the 100 year-old properties. Here the owners have found a palate that works.

Natural light flows into the kitchen from a adjacent laundry room / mud room. This part of the first floor also houses the powder room (not shown). The cabinetry is extended from the kitchen. The floors add a lot of visual interest to the space. Have a dog? There's already a pet door ready to use. 




 master bathroom at 3823 Roland Ave 21211




A feature that takes 3823 Roland Ave from good to great is the large master bathroom. An entire bedroom was re-purposed into a space that is fifty percent bathroom and fifty percent walk-in closets. Here's a view of the closet corridor......

With the second floor of the home functioning as a master bedroom suite, you'll be pleased to see the third floor provides two additional bedrooms and an additional full bathroom. The federal style of the house is such that the dimensions of the living room and two of the three bedrooms are all roughly 14.5 feet wide. These are luminous open spaces, all illustrated in this photo of the 3rd floor front bedroom....

Sustainable is sensational in Hampden. Here's a run-down of a few other green construction materials used in the renovation; batt insulation, blown insulation, spray foam, a pex plumbing system, low-flow fixtures, salvaged wood, and a white roof. 




deck at 3823 Roland Ave 21211




The back yard has a three-tier cascading deck system leading to a level green yard which rests atop a detached garage. It's a smart design for an elevated space. This portion of Roland Ave has homes that soar to some of the tallest heights in the neighborhood. Here's another view of the deck system...





backyard at 3823 Roland Ave 21211




These empty spaces can become your outdoor living room. A detail that you'll always enjoy is the backyard faces "Plesant Place".  The view of colorful Hampden rowhouses is a treat. Normally in Hampden you'd be looking at the back of the properties. The facade of these homes have a theatrical quality, much like looking at a backdrop on a stage. During the holidays when these properties are decked out with Christmas lights the view is even sweeter. 




 backyard at 3823 Roland Ave 21211





We'll end in the backyard. Lovely and green, neatly landscaped so it's low maintenance for the next owner. If you are in need of an even larger backyard, you'll enjoy the hidden Pleasant Place Park just beyond the garage. Live at 3823 Roland Ave and you'll be walking distance from The Rotunda, The Avenue, and Johns Hopkins University. Live-Near-Your-Work grants from Hopkins are available in this location.
