Nestled in the serene enclave of Guilford, Baltimore, the residence at 2 Saint Martins Road stands as a testament to the elegant fusion of classic Spanish Colonial architecture and contemporary luxury. This 1926-built 5 bedroom, 3/2 bath home, rejuvenated in 2016 with an all-encompassing renovation, retains its timeless allure while embracing modern style and amenities.
Upon approach, the classic stucco facade, adorned with a Spanish tile roof and complemented by natural wood finished doors and shutters, immediately sets an elegant tone. The bluestone steps lead guests through a stucco garden wall archway, hinting at the meticulous attention to detail evident throughout the property.
The marble-floored foyer, with its beamed and vaulted cedar paneled ceiling, flows seamlessly into the living room. Stunning hand-scraped oak floors grace three levels of the home and speak to the quality of the refurbishment. The room’s beamed ceiling and stucco walls frame an oversized wood-burning fireplace, its carved stone mantel and chevron-pattern black marble firebox forming a striking focal point. Adjacent, the sunroom, with ceramic tile flooring and triple atrium doors, offers a tranquil space, bathed in natural light, that leads out to the patio and pool areas. This transition to the outdoors is effortless, echoing the home’s harmonious blend of indoor and outdoor living.
The formal dining room, with its archways and modern chandelier, paves the way to a stunning gourmet kitchen featuring Viking stainless steel appliances, granite counters, and custom antique white finish cabinetry. This culinary haven extends to a custom-fitted butler’s pantry, ensuring every modern convenience is at hand.
Ascending to the second level, the vaulted primary bedroom becomes a private retreat. It features a hot tub deck, offering serene views, and a resort-like marble spa bath. The additional bedrooms, each with unique character and refined finishes, continue the narrative of elegant living. The home’s lower level reveals a family room with travertine floors and a built-in entertainment center with a laundry room and powder room nearby.
The outdoor spaces truly sets this home apart, featuring a private backyard, enclosed by walls and fencing, a saltwater pool, professional border gardens and an adjacent casita, which matches the main house’s stucco exterior and serves as a gym or studio, providing a versatile space for relaxation or recreation. In every aspect, 2 Saint Martins Road stands as a distinguished embodiment of architectural beauty and quality, a haven where the past and present coalesce to create an unparalleled living experience.
