Welcome to 4510 Roland Avenue—a true Roland Park gem. From the expansive wrap-around porch to the unique red slate roof, from the 10-foot ceilings to the exceptional layout, this is an extraordinary home.
Entering through the front door with its original leaded window you will be greeted by refinished oak floors with mahogany inlay. The grand foyer with wood-burning fireplace is bordered by working pocket doors, leading to spacious living spaces. The formal dining room with its decorative fireplace and French doors to the porch will host many memorable meals. It opens to the large sunny kitchen with carefully restored cabinets, new marble countertops, and hardwood floors. A new chef's dual fuel range and hood make cooking in this space a pleasure. An enclosed porch just off the kitchen is perfect for a morning cup of coffee. How handy is the connecting laundry room/pantry right behind the kitchen?
The library features custom built-in cabinetry and floor-to-ceiling bookcases with a rolling library ladder. French doors lead to the porch making a wonderful circular flow for entertaining on beautiful days. When the days turn wintry you will welcome the warmth of the wood-burning fireplace. The library connects to the formal living room (or spacious family room) with a large leaded bay window and corner fireplace—plenty of room for large gatherings!
Head up the grand staircase to the landing with a wide window seat—a cozy spot for puzzles, reading, or game night. Up a few more stairs is the broad center hall of the second floor. Four bedrooms, or three bedrooms and a master suite, plus an office/nursery open off the hall. The brand-new primary bath offers vintage style and updated luxury. The other bath on this level is recently renovated. Custom hardwood floors gleam throughout these ample rooms. There’s also an enclosed porch with a view of the garden—ideal as a sunroom, office, or yoga studio. The third floor provides an enormous office/family room/exercise room, or whatever you wish, plus two bedrooms and a renovated bath.
The back yard is a fully fenced private oasis that includes a brick pathway and patio underneath a pergola, a formal herb garden, mature trees, and shrubs plus a flat lawn. The garage, large enough for two cars plus plenty of storage, opens to the yard as well as the alley.
This well-tended home has only known four owners in its 116-year history. The house is a short walk to all that the neighborhood has to offer—schools, community pool, library, restaurants, coffee shops, grocery stores, and more. Just a few minutes will get you to 83 for those who commute by car or train. This house is all that people looking to live in Roland Park hope to find and more!
