Perfect Investment Property in Charles Village
What a joy it is to find a property that maintains its historic architectural character yet has been updated with taste. As one half of a stand alone duplex, 2716 St. Paul Street is the perfect multi-unit building that sits on a shaded block in Charles Village. Listed at $400,000 by David Tomasko.
You will have this well maintained income property with 4 units fully occupied without a problem. An effortless investment in a stellar neighborhood, with proximity to Johns Hopkins University (Homewood Campus), Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), University of Baltimore, and ready public transportation to Amtrak’s Penn Station and downtown Baltimore, there is a large population of potential renters.
Or, choose to live here as there is a two-floor “owner’s unit” on the first and second floor rear. It’s simple to open some doors and create an easy flow throughout the house. Invite some friends (or a babysitter) as roommates, establish a separate office area, or keep an in-law suite, and strike a balance between shared space and privacy.
The first-floor front studio unit has floor to ceiling windows and an antique nineteenth-century fireplace. The units have clean and bright updated bathrooms, exposed brick walls, hardwood floors, and refreshingly tidy and workable kitchens. With high ceilings, each unit feels airy and sunny, even if it’s one of the studios.
The property is set back from the street. In fact, this block of St. Paul is among the deepest lots along the North/South residential corridor of Charles Village. The fire escape is well maintained which is important for multi-unit dwellings.
There are front, side, and back yards, which means windows are on 3 sides of the building allowing filtered light throughout the house and stairwells. The side and back yard are fenced in with a cushy lawn in the rear, perfect for pets, games, or kids.
To top it off, the building comes with 2 parking spaces in the back, which you access in a clean and open alley way that’s shared with the Johns Hopkins Press. It’s located within the Charles Village Benefit District offering regular street and sidewalk cleaning. The property is on the National Register of Historic Places (CHAP Eligible), and also within the Baltimore National Heritage Area.
The Charm City Circulator and The Johns Hopkins bus are just at the end of the block, and popular bike lanes run the lengths of St. Paul and Maryland Avenue as well, offering options to the local residents. The property has proximity to Station North Arts & Entertainment District, The Baltimore Museum of Art, and Wyman Dell Park which has a playground and walking paths and was designed by the firm of Frederick Law Olmsted.
This property is a no brainer. Seriously. Contact David Tomasko today to make an offer.
