Property Description

This classic, historic Charles Barber “Grand Victorian” estate provides the perfect blend of character & charm for only the most sophisticated and tasteful buyer. You can see why historians confirm how this class of Barber Victorians were the inspirations for many Christmas cards; a rare notoriety that lends a sense of nostalgia. Close to the finest educational institutions and historic landmarks, this cinematic and elegantly presented Queen Anne Style Victorian is complete with modern updates and replete with gothic pillars, French chandelier, Tiffany-style stained glass throughout, carved balustrades, and the most-expensive wood, Snakewood, crafted into the many fireplaces and floorings. The previous owner’s relationship with Jérôme Napoléon Bonaparte’s estate, brother of Napoleon, may explain the later addition of the priceless French chandelier and cherubs. On the main floor, double pocket doors make it possible to create a variety of open and expansive spaces for a quiet refuge, or for entertaining guests, with each room expressing its own unique, artisan patterns crafted into the flooring. It has 5 bedrooms on the 2nd floor, and the two “in-law” apartments on the 3rd floor, also useful for guests or older college-age children (complete with a separate entrance to the outside). This was one of the first half-dozen houses in Roland Park (the model residential community cited by Frederick Law Olmsted, Jr. at the Harvard School of Design), and the first to have gas and electric lines installed. Several high-profile business leaders owned the house including Robert J. Hamill, one of the first investors who developed elegant Roland Park. A stroll down the street reveals other remarkable well-preserved Victorian mansions, and children can walk to several of the top Private Schools in the country (Bryn Mawr is just over the wooden pedestrian bridge 400 feet away!). Being less than 10 minutes to the Amtrak Station makes commuting to NYC or Washington, DC highly convenient. “Collateral Analytics” in January 2021 estimated the house valuation at $1,362,000
