Remington: Hampden’s little sister is all grown up.

Remington has for years lived in the shadow of its larger, more well-known sibling, Hampden. But it is now growing into its own.  While this story is about 2633 Hampden Avenue, it’s also about the neighborhood.

Let’s begin at the beginning:  2633 Hampden Avenue has undergone many configurations during its 107-year history.  Today it has 2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, HVAC, and a blank-slate courtyard ready for your creative realization.  The granite countertops and stainless steel appliances are what you expect in a new renovation.  It also has a finished basement that’s fit to be on a first floor anywhere else.  What you don’t find very often in Remington is a home of this size:  1260 above-ground square feet.  If this home were located in Hampden, you’d have to add Remington: Hampden’s little sister is all grown up.roughly another $70K.  The first thing I noticed about this house is the attention to detail.  The owners obviously know what they’re doing, as I did not observe a single shortcut.

So, here’s what so special about Remington and, indeed, this house.  Remington: Hampden’s little sister is all grown up.Remington is located adjacent to the southwest corner of Hampden.  According to Live Baltimore, Remington is in the midst of a major resurgence.  But you don’t have to believe Baltimore’s largest booster–you can see it for yourself.

Besides what I mentioned about 2633 Hampden Avenue itself, this is what else you get when you own this house: an artsy, walkable neighborhood, with quiet streets, and a village-like atmosphere.
