Back on the main level, let's take in the wooded views off the large side deck. A canopy of trees provides shade. It's green as far as the eye can see! This eastern side of the property would be a lovely place to host a Sunday brunch. Standing on this deck at the Broker's Open an agent remarked to me "We are truly in the country!" which is ironic because this property is in a beloved part of Baltimore City.

The backyard is spacious, there is a combination of open space and wooded land. It sits mostly undeveloped awaiting its new owner. How would you use the space? I'd build an artist studio and plant a field of sunflowers.
