Absolutely charming 3 bedroom home in prime Guilford location only 1 block from famed Sherwood Gardens and backing directly to the new Guilford Reservoir Park. Dreamy architectural detail with solid 1921 construction. Idyllic large flat lot, fully fenced and abutting the newly redeveloped Reservoir Park. The home is as charming on the outside as it is inside. Park your car and meander down the long stone paved walk way, pass under a variety of towering mature specimen trees along side beds of established gardens. Sneak a peek at what's going on at nearby Sherwood Gardens- its just at the end of the street. Enter through the front door into an adorable center hall colonial- To the left find a cozy living room with hardwood floors, large windows, crown moldings and wood burning fireplace. The classic Guilford sunporch is next with its original terracotta floors and walls wrapped in glass windows. The formal Dining Room is to the right of the home and will serve as a perfect atmosphere for those nostalgic holiday gatherings you've been hoping to create. The kitchen is next and is the true heart of the home- It has been fully updated with stainless appliances, granite counters and a U shaped configuration that not only provides ample prep space but is also great for keeping company close with bar seating. There is also a fully updated half bathroom making life much simpler. Large slider doors allow you to exit the kitchen easily into the absolutely amazing rear lot. You'll be hard pressed to find another backyard like this in Guilford- It's not only massive but completely flat and fully fenced. Step outside, breath in the fresh air and start enjoying the outdoors from the convenience of your own home. The original stone patio remains and is a perfect spot to set up a grill and an outdoor dining space where you can relax with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine and watch your children or grandchildren play or your furry family members romp. Try your hand at gardening, and create a beautiful hidden oasis in the heart of the city- this lot will allow you to get creative! Then put on a pair of sneakers or grab your bike and hit the trails on the newly developed Guilford Reservoir Park which backs directly up to the house. Come back inside and travel upstairs where you'll find 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms, plus a large fully finished bonus space. Bedrooms 2 & 3 are cozy, practical sizes plenty large enough for children's bedrooms or a home office. One of the bedrooms has a very charming addition built in with a rear facing wall of windows. The Primary suite is beautiful with hardwood floors, dormers and traditional moldings. It has a large walk in closet- a rarity for 1920s homes, plus a fully updated en-suite bathroom. The attic space is a bonus as its been fully finished and offers exceptional storage options. The basement is unfinished but has been fully waterproofed, large enough for even more storage but could also be finished to add additional square footage to the home and to make things even better the natural gas boiler and HVAC is only 1 year old.

The Guilford Historic District, nestled within the urban landscape of northeast Baltimore City, stands as a testament to meticulous planning and architectural vision that took root in the early 20th century. Spanning 210 acres, this planned residential subdivision emerged from the foresight of the Roland Park Company, which acquired the land in 1911 from the Guilford Park Company, initiating a development process marked by a fusion of urban planning and architectural ingenuity. Central to Guilford's allure are its distinctive landscape features, carefully woven into the fabric of the neighborhood. Main thoroughfares and secondary roadways meander through the district, flanked by meticulously manicured green spaces. Inspired by the principles of the renowned landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, Guilford boasts "Olmstedian Places" that blend seamlessly with its architectural tapestry. One of the cornerstones of Guilford's success lies in its robust infrastructure, meticulously laid out to support the burgeoning community. But perhaps the most striking aspect of the district is its architectural diversity, exemplified by a harmonious blend of styles that reflect the eclectic tastes of its inhabitants. From the grandeur of Jacobethan Revival and Tudor Revival to the timeless elegance of Colonial Revival and the intricate detailing of Italian Renaissance Revival Style, Guilford stands as a living museum of architectural heritage. Yet, what truly sets Guilford apart is not merely its architectural splendor but the visionary approach taken by its chief architects. Rather than imposing a rigid aesthetic, they championed a philosophy of architectural planning that prioritized site development as a catalyst for design innovation. By seamlessly integrating the built environment with its natural surroundings, Guilford's architects embraced the ethos of the City Beautiful Movement, ushering in an era of comprehensive suburban design that celebrated the unity of the arts. In essence, Guilford Historic District transcends its status as a residential enclave; it is a living testament to the enduring power of thoughtful urban planning and architectural excellence. In its streets and structures, one finds not just a neighborhood, but a timeless embodiment of human creativity and aspiration.
