Location: Baltimore, Maryland
This chipper Art Deco-style home was designed and built by Benjamin Eisenberg in 1947 for him and his family and was featured in a couple books on local architecture. Located in the Mayfield neighborhood of Baltimore, the 1,189-square-foot two-bedroom appears largely untouched, boasting curved walls, glass brick windows, and an abundance of period details.
These whimsical touches include an ice cream-colored ’50s-style kitchen with curved cabinetry and shelves and linoleum checkerboard floors, a pink and blue bathroom, and cedar-ribbed tiling found throughout the residence.
An open floor plan starts with a living room with fireplace that flows into the dining room, which occupies a curved section of the house. Here, a large, also curving window anchors the space, which is flanked by a grid of built-in shelves. Off this area is the eat-in kitchen and an attached greenhouse.
Although the home needs a big refresh, it’s hard not to fall for the chartreuse-and-turquoise-trimmed bungalow, which even enjoys views of Lake Montebello. Located at 2105 Erdman Avenue, it’s offered at $250,000, with some midcentury furniture included as well.
