Property Detail
4001 Greenway Baltimore,MD 21218

Guilford House, on the terraced site of the fabled 52-room Guilford Mansion, home of publisher A.S. Abell. Once the secluded homesite sat surrounded by its 300 acre Guilford estate, until later when 210 acres came under the auspices of the Olmstead brothers & the Roland Park Company in 1911 to be developed into an upscale garden community. Designed by Edward L. Palmer of Palmer Lamdin and built in 1920, this all brick Tudor manor house is a fitting replacement for its Italianate predecessor on Guilford's most prominent setting, a total 1.4 acres spanning Lambeth & Wendover Roads. Oversized arched wrought iron & glass entry doors welcome to a very large yet warm foyer with oak beamed ceiling & wainscoting, fireplace, wide window seat & splendid open oak staircase giving access to all 4 levels. The foyer opens to the 40-foot living room, also with beamed ceiling, fireplace and opposite-end picture windows. From this grand space, through French doors is a conservatory with its 3 walls of windows & fireplace. French doors also lead to the banquet sized dining room with a Georgian fireplace, picture window & access to the sun room. Featuring French doors to the terrace & sun room, both the family room with fireplace & study complete the circular flow of the formal rooms of the main level.

Undisturbed from the original plans, the highly functional kitchen complex completes the main level. An updated gourmet kitchen features custom recess-paneled cabinetry, quartz counters, JennAir appliances, cozy window seat & flow to a large breakfast room. The updated custom fitted butler's pantry with ceiling height glass-door cabinets still evokes a bygone era.

At the end of a passage from the light-flooded 2nd floor hall a sumptuous master suite awaits. A 30-foot master bedroom with a seating area at the fireplace also features a picture window, French doors to the conservatory rooftop, sitting room, custom dressing room/closets & marble bath. A 2nd master bedroom with fireplace, spa bath & French doors to the sun room rooftop plus 2 additional en-suite bedrooms, study & 5th bedroom are also found on the 2nd floor.

A very pleasant surprise at the top of the main staircase is the 41 x 21 third floor recreation room filled with sunlight from many windows. Two large bedrooms, updated hall bath, spa bath and laundry room all radiate from this wonderful space. Finished lower level spaces include an exercise room, full kitchen, 2nd laundry room & half-bath. Mahogany inlaid hardwood floors, superb millwork, high ceilings, 7 fireplaces, all updated baths, main & back staircases, updated systems & old world ambience are only a few of its countless amenities.

From its baronial facade with high-pitched slate roof & towering chimneys to its completely brick-walled back yard surrounding formal & informal gardens, extraordinary design is apparent from every aspect.
