Property Description

Welcome to Arden House, a timeless masterpiece designed in 1928 by Baltimore architect, William F. Stone, Jr. This stunning residence, built by Frederick May Gittings and Helen Railton Gittings, epitomizes the beauty of Tudor Revival architecture. With its stucco and stone exteriors adorned with half-timbering, numerous Tudor arches, and leaded glass elements, this home stands as a testament to the impeccable craftsmanship and design of a bygone era. This residence, featured as The 33rd Symphony Decorators Show House in 2009, holds a unique place in Baltimore's architectural legacy. Meticulously restored and updated, this home seamlessly blends modern comforts with its original charm, creating a perfect harmony of old-world elegance and contemporary living. With over 6,000 square feet of living space, Arden House provides ample room for both grand gatherings and intimate moments. Warm and inviting, with a light and airy color palette and beautiful hardwood floors throughout, history and modern elements coalesce to create a residence that is not just a home but a living testament to the enduring allure of timeless design. This is your opportunity to own a piece of architectural history, where every room tells a story and every detail is a work of art. Enter the house through the Foyer with its stately split staircase, wood-burning fireplace, and leaded glass windows. Off the foyer, the light-filled Living Room, with French door access to a private office, offers the perfect space to receive guests, while the Family Room adjacent to the Living Room has a wall of custom Andersen architectural series replacement windows that bathes the room with natural light. The Dining Room, with original built-ins, is large enough for your next dinner party and a bright sunroom provides an ideal spot for reading a book while enjoying your morning coffee. The heart of Arden House is undoubtedly its dream kitchen, featuring granite counters, an island with a Wolf gas cooktop and seating, stainless steel appliances including a Sub-Zero refrigerator and wine fridge, a butlers pantry, wet bar, and a convenient warming drawer for effortless entertaining. Custom cabinets with soft-close features and glass fronts provide plenty of storage. Moving upstairs youre greeted with a generous sitting area that can be used as a study area or reading nook. The expansive Primary Bedroom offers a retreat-like atmosphere with plenty of space for a huge bed and a sitting area. And wait until you see the walk-in closet! It is enormous and customized with a closet system. The luxurious Primary Bathroom includes a classic claw foot soaking tub and a large shower with multiple shower heads. There is also a dual vanity with a custom built-in cabinet and modern LED anti-fog mirrors. Also located on the second floor are two additional nicely sized Bedrooms connected by a Jack-and-Jill bathroom. A large Laundry Room with modern conveniences completes this level. The third floor has another large sitting area that provides versatility as a game room or additional office space, three additional Bedrooms, and a full Bathroom for added convenience. The lower level is partially finished and can be used as a rec room or home gym and has a decorative fireplace. A captivating piece of history, there is a wall safe that adds a unique touch. Theres a large storage room, a utility room, and a full Bath with a stall shower and an original sink to complete this level. Walk-up stairs provide easy access to the backyard. Arden House extends its charm beyond its interiors with a beautifully landscaped yard with views of the city and a long driveway offering ample parking.
