For sale: Restored mansion in Mount Vernon
Located in the heart of Mount Vernon, this beautifully renovated family home offers over 10,000 square feet of generous living space.
It is rare to find a home of this size in Mount Vernon that has not been converted into apartments or condos, as well as a home in which many of the important architectural details have been preserved. This is a unique opportunity to own one of Baltimore’s most desirable homes in a prime location.
If the house sounds familiar, I mentioned it before when I wrote about five unique Airbnb properties in the city.
The stunning architectural details of the home are the highlight of the home. It includes a beautiful stained glass skylight, detailed woodwork, ornate plasterwork, massive pocket doors and a unique staircase. The interiors feature colorful wallpaper, large light fixtures and hardwood floors.
The house opens to a long foyer, corridor and grand staircase. The spacious living room features large windows and an alcove with a beautiful marble fireplace. Pocket doors lead to an ornate dining room. Behind it is another large sitting room with a fireplace and gilded mirror with access to the courtyard. There is another room, which could be a bedroom or office, with a beautiful dining kitchen at the back of the house. There are also two half baths and a full bath on this level.
On the upper floors there are nine bedrooms, all with en suite bathrooms. The curved staircase dazzles on every level, with a beautiful stained glass skylight above providing plenty of natural light.
The house has a deck and a spacious courtyard surrounded by greenery, perfect for entertaining. A large private car park for ten cars completes the property. Besides a residential home, the building can be used in a number of ways, including as a boutique hotel, offices or a bed and breakfast with a separate owner’s suite.
It’s located across the street from the charming grounds of Mount Vernon Place and the George Washington Monument (the first in the country to honor George Washington!). The Walters Art Museum, Peabody Institute and the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra are all within walking distance, as well as shops, restaurants and downtown.
