This rare-for-the-neighborhood new construction home proves that a new build can deliver all the modern elements you expect, but still be warm and inviting. A careful balance of modern and traditional finishes is struck throughout the home, where dark espresso wide-plank hardwood floors soften the modern gray-blue color palate, steel railings and industrial-inspired tile selections. A breakfast bar with decorative millwork and lantern style pendant lighting provides a seamless transition between the sunny open concept main living space and the kitchen, where Shaker style cabinets and gray quartz counters meet a metallic backsplash and stainless steel Samsung appliance package including 5-burner slide-in range. There are two nicely sized bedrooms on the second floor, each with good closet space, that share a hall bath with heathered hex tile floors, crisp white vanity and soaking tub with porcelain tile surround. The ample master bedroom with en-suite features an extra wide walk-in shower with a statement tile surround at the front of the third floor. At the other end is a seating area with quartz-topped wet bar with wine fridge--great for a private night cap or party prep space for entertaining up on the roof deck, where there are breathtaking 360-degree views that include the center city skyline. A water hookup allows for rooftop gardening and easy clean up. The finished basement with full bath comes with its own skyline view, with a custom mural spanning the extra living space. Other bonuses include an Aiphone video intercom and programmable Nest thermostat. Everything along the Baltimore Ave strip is only a few blocks away, so places like Mariposa Food Co-op, Dock Street Brewery, Cedar Park Cafe, VIX Emporium, Gold Standard Cafe and Booker~s Restaurant & Bar--not to mention the 34 trolley line--are all super-convenient.
