Property Description

A Takoma Park landmark!! This very spacious, gorgeous and historic Victorian beauty in the most desirable North Takoma neighborhood is listed as an Outstanding Resource by the County. Although the tax record shows 1923 as the year built, there is evidence that the property was purchased in1882-3 (4 parcels) and further evidence from the Takoma Park Historic Society that the house was built 1892. A news article from 1910 references a remodel or rebuild of that house, and in the 1920's Dr. Llewellyn Jordan added a major addition. Architecturally, with the steep gabled roof, wrap-around porch, tall proportions and decorative overlay, it most closely resembles the Queen Anne Style. The lovely curb appeal features stone retaining walls, a picket fence, and the wrap-around porch, which goes on forever, shaded by a variety of mature trees. The fabulous location is just 3 blocks to Metro and a short stroll to Old Town Takoma shops, restaurants and farmers market. You are also convenient to downtown Silver Spring: about 1 mile. Inside you will find over 4,000 sq ft of gorgeous living space on three finished levels with 6-7 bedrooms and 5.5 baths that offer so much flexibility in how you use the generous spaces. The current owners have been most fastidious in updating and caring form the house during their ownership!The original southern heart pine and oak floors have been refinished and there is period glass throughout. Ten foot ceilings grace the main floor. Stepping inside the gracious split-light front door you will find a charming entry foyer with an antique brass chandelier and a chestnut staircase. A bedroom/guest room or office and a full bath are off the foyer. The library/office, surrounded by built-in bookshelves, cabinets, and a fireplace with an electric insert, opens to the side porch through a nine-light door with sidelight windows and a transom. A pocket door opens to a vast living room with a wood-burning fireplace. A pair of built -in corner China cabinets indicates that it could have been intended originally as a combination living room and dining room, as it is currently used. There are custom built-ins throughout the house. The renovated kitchen features ample cabinetry, a butler's pantry, a brand new fridge, a live edge walnut counter, a granite island breakfast bar, table space, and an adjacent powder room.French doors lead to a patio for outdoor dining. There is a family room with a wet bar off the kitchen. This could easily function as a playroom, or with minor modifications, as a main floor laundry or separate dining room. The second level features a spacious primary suite with a full bath, a huge walk-in closet, and cedar-lined custom built-in cabinets. Three more bedrooms, one with an attached bath and an additional hallbath, complete this floor. A back stairway leads down to the kitchen. The third floor features a large open family room area with skylights, a huge bedroom, cedar closets, the 5th full bath, and a smaller office or bedroom with a loft bed in the turret.A mudroom with custom built-ins for shoes and a basement with washer and dryer, work benches and a lot of storage space complete the house. The basement is unfinished but very large and functional! Space for laundry, wine storage (can convey) yard tools, a lot of storage. The lovely hardscape and landscape includes established perennial beds: hellebores, spring bulbs, echinacea, day-lilies, hydrangeas, roses, and much more in abundance. Off the patio are raised beds that can be used for vegetables or more flowers. The chickens can convey or not! Finally, there is a second patio, a large parking pad for multiple vehicles and a shed. 7300 Baltimore Avenue is truly dream house: become the next stewards of this historic house and make it your own!
