    Description

    Located in the heart of Baltimore's Mount Vernon Cultural District, 829 Park Avenue is a grand city townhouse from which the very best of Baltimore's cultural institutions (Baltimore Symphony, Center Stage, Walters Art Museum, Lyric Opera House, and the Enoch Pratt Library), restaurants, cafes and the beautiful squares of Mount Vernon Place can be reached within a 5-10 minute walk. Enjoy a comfortable and expansive space to work from home, host overnight guests, and to entertain on a small or large scale. The Mount Vernon neighborhood is the first and largest historic district in Baltimore. It is filled with large townhouses built by the leaders of city society in the late 18th and early 20th centuries, with very few surviving as single-family homes like 829 Park Avenue. Today, Mount Vernon is alive with artists, musicians, young families, visitors, students, retirees, employees of investment and other firms headquartered in Mount Vernon, small business owners, and long-time residents who enjoy everything a small city like Baltimore has to offer, including neighbors who know each other, and who love city life. Frequently called the Knabe House, the Knabe family owned 829 Park Avenue from 1885 to 1906, and built world-famous pianos in a factory where the Ravens stadium is now located. The Knabes were the city's largest employer in the late 1800?s to early 1900s. Active in the arts, the family hosted a visit by composer Tchaikovsky to Baltimore in 1891 after he was featured at the opening of Carnegie Hall in New York where he played? a Knabe piano on the stage of the new venue. The success of the Knabes is reflected in the grand spaces and exquisite detail of 829 Park Avenue. Modern features such as air conditioning, an electronic entrance gate, and second floor laundry have been added to the home, while irreplaceable assets such as a mahogany-paneled dining room, a conservatory with Italian marble columns and tiles, and a large stained glass skylight have been protected and restored. 829 Park Avenue is close to I-95, Amtrak's Penn Station, and the city's free circulator, subway, and light rail systems for easy access to the entire metro area. The 7,746 SqFt of Gross Living Area includes 7 bedrooms, 3 full baths and 3 half baths and 11 fireplaces. An unfinished basement, garage, and 4th floor servant's quarters brings the total square footage to 12,670 SqFt.
