Rarely available property with 3-4 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms in the main house, plus a separate, independent carriage house with a 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom apartment connected by a patio and a 2-car garage. The carriage house (603 S. Hanover) is ideal as a separate income rental unit, au pair residence, in-law set up, or as a home office. Rental income on this unit can cover your annual property taxes! You'll appreciate that this property is one of only 7 of this type in the entire neighborhood.
The main house is approximately 2,500 sq. ft. and features a neutral decor throughout, as well as many practical features including a first level family room/den, powder room and laundry room, an open living/dining room with wood burning fireplace, hardwood floors, and sliders leading to a private composite deck all on the bright second level. The primary bedroom level features a sitting area/home office, along with a beautiful en suite bathroom just remodeled in 2023. One level up, you'll find 2 additional amply sized bedrooms and another full bath. HVAC was updated in 2019 with a 3.5 ton unit and three supplemental mini split units are located on the upper levels for those extra hot summer days.
The 800+ sq. ft. carriage house sits above the 2-car garage and features an open concept main level with full kitchen and breakfast bar, a living room/dining room with hardwood floors, a wood burning fireplace and an in-unit washer and dryer. Upstairs is a sizable loft bedroom (with room for a sitting area) connected to an updated full bath.
The owners have invested in significant and meaningful updates to include: replacing the roofs and gutters (2015), Pella energy efficient windows and doors (2014), appliances (majority replaced in last 5 years) and two oversized HVAC systems (2019). The home was also freshly painted and carpeted in 2023. The list of upgrades is extensive.
With the purchase of this property, one essentially buys two houses with an attached 2-car garage for the price of one. Located in one of Baltimore's most charming and beautiful neighborhoods, Otterbein offers so much historic character, several community parks in close proximity to the property, walkability to Federal Hill and the Inner Harbor, and convenient access to the freeways to both New York and DC, the MARC train at Camden Yards and other commuter routes. There is also a transferable membership to the Otterbein Swim Club available bypassing the 4+ year waiting list!
