Say hello to 139 Welcome Alley, the showplace home on one of Baltimore’s most welcoming streets! Meander past the neighborhood pocket park and down this quiet pedestrian friendly 1800’s cobblestone block to this one-of-a-kind 2 bedroom, 1.5 bath townhome that is full of interesting surprises. The main level features a living room, dining room with wood-burning fireplace and a light-filled kitchen with many recent upgrades including stainless appliances, granite counters and ceiling-height cabinetry.
On the second floor you’ll find one of the bedrooms along with a cozy den and a wonderful separate family room featuring another wood-burning fireplace, built-in bookshelves, and an incredible 2-story wall of windows that leads to a sweet terrace with southern exposures. You’ll feel like you’re overlooking a quaint European village.
Travel to the top level owner’s suite to enjoy the primary bedroom, a dressing area and wall of closets overlooking the family room below, and a beautiful updated bathroom. The sizable bathroom enjoys a walk-in shower with glass doors and marble tile along with a separate jetted soaking tub. The convenience level is high as a side-by-side washer and dryer are neatly tucked into a laundry closet.
There are salvaged hardwood floors, exposed brick, and many historical details throughout. An unfinished basement serves for helpful storage. This home has been meticulously maintained and offers many significant updates, including but not limited to a replaced roof and skylight (2014), water heater (2016) and high efficiency HVAC (2021). The majority of the windows have been replaced between 2011 through 2022 as well! Otterbein is full of many hidden landscaped parks, private security, and is away from the bustle of Federal Hill and the Inner Harbor, but close enough to walk to its many popular attractions. Permit-only parking is easy here, and you are walking distance to M&T Bank Stadium, Camden Yards, the MARC train, the Light Rail and close to all major commuter routes including I-95 and 295.
