Woodholme Avenue, Estate of the Day
There's nothing wrong with a little faux finish or handpainting here and there but this home in Pikesville, Maryland takes this concept to a whole other level. The listing says the property is one of a kind and truly, I haven't seen one with quite this much handpainted detail in a while. The 1925 Colonial has been decorated with murals, faux finishes and other painterly touches in just about every room.
The four-bedroom home has hand painted floors, moldings and ceilings throughout including a rather exuberant mural that spans the kitchen and dining area. The master suite has his and hers baths. The "hers" is a Frenchified fantasy complete with caryatids, marble and chandeliers. There are some beautiful touches including the family room with stained glass windows and a large window-lined billiard room in which the faux finished ceiling is a lovely touch. The over one acre property also includes a pool and a garage with a studio apartment. This property is listed at $2.5 million.
