Hugh Newell Jacobsen Townhouse in Baltimore – $295K
Looking for a modernist oasis in Baltimore? Here’s a listing for a 1968 Hugh Newell Jacobsen-designed Bolton Square townhouse. The award-winning Bolton Square is a complex of 35 mid-century modern townhomes designed by the D.C. modernist architect and developed by Stanley Panitz. Jacobsen’s design for the townhomes is a streamlined take on the 19th century rowhouses of the surrounding Bolton Hill neighborhood, which is on the National Register of Historic Places. In 2007, Bolton Square was given landmark status by the city. Here’s a Washington Post story from a several years ago and one from Baltimore’s STYLE magazine.
