1884 Victorian

Dundalk, Maryland

A Piece of Merritt History

Welcome to a piece of history!

Built in 1884 for the daughter of the Merritt family (of Merritt Boulevard), this home has only had three owners in over 100 years. Character abounds in this beautifully updated Victorian, with modern conveniences that still pay respect to the original features.

The first thing you'll notice is the enormous gravel driveway, which can host up to ten cars - ideal for entertaining! The screened in front porch is an idyllic way to take in each Baltimore sunset.

Through the front doors you are welcomed into a grand foyer with stunning original hardwoods. The piano, dated 1911, conveys with the sale. Turn right and you find yourself in the oversized family room with, wait for it, a secret door! Push one of the bookshelves and you are taken to extra storage on the first level. All customized built-ins surround the gas-insert fireplace and really make the space feel grandiose.

Next you'll find the 16x16 foot dining room, big enough to host every holiday here! With crown, chair and baseboard molding, there is no detail that has been overlooked in the pristine upkeep of this charmer. The kitchen has been fully updated with all new stainless steel appliances, a beverage center, ample cabinetry and over 35 square feet of new Quartz countertops. If you needed more storage, there is a huge butler's pantry, big enough not only to store food but also the washer and dryer and custom Closet Maid shelving. A full bathroom and the secret storage room finish off the first level of living.

As you walk upstairs you will be greeted by a space, especially during this time, perfect for a small home office. Three bedrooms, each of relatively similar enormous size, are found on this upper level. All bedrooms boast double closets, and each has the original hardwood floors gleaming below foot. The main bathroom on the upper level has been updated with new cabinetry and fresh paint for a clean and crisp look.

The backyard is a little oasis unto itself! With hardscaping allowing for guests to gather, a turf space for roasting marshmallows by the firepit, and a pirate ship built for the high seas with storage underneath, you will never want to leave. The fully established Zoysia lawn is extremely low maintenance and drought resistant. The 12x24 workshop boasts a 16 foot work bench, its own 100 amp electric box, and is ideal for every single project you could imagine. There is also a large garden shed which conveys, perfect for your outdoor tools. Finally you will note wicking tubs in the side yard which are perfect for growing vegetables and herbs.

A few key features to note: there are two separate HVAC units (one for each floor); the basement was waterproofed with a lifetime guarantee (2020); wall hung 175k BTU natural gas boiler (2018); updated copper water line from the main to the house (2006); lifetime architectural shingle roof (2004); updated siding and windows; new blinds; tons of attic storage; this home is on the 4th of July parade route; and the whole home alarm system conveys with the sale.
