My Upper Fells Point rowhome was built in 1848, and I bought it in 1990. It was love at first sight when I saw the pine floors and fireplace in the living room, culminating a day of househunting with realtor Jake Metz. That was even before getting a look at the 360-degree view from the roof deck!
One impractical aspect of my purchase was getting a three-suite home — VERY unusual in 1990 to have three spacious rooms, all with en suite bathrooms — and only needing space for my first sheltie, Beau, and myself. And Beau was always at my feet, so the two of us used maybe 3 square feet of a 2,160 square foot property.
To commoditize the space and work on interpersonal relationships, I began homesharing in 1991, and added short-term options in 2014.
My home is at the exact crossroads of four major features of Baltimore: halfway between downtown and Patterson Park, and Johns Hopkins Medicine and the Fells Point waterfront. It’s ideal!!
