1430 and 1432 E. Fort Avenue are located in the Locust Point neighborhood in South Baltimore. World famous as the home of the Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine, Domino Sugar and the Under Armour Global Headquarters, Locust Point has been a cornerstone of Baltimore City life for centuries. Still maintaining its roots in shipping and industry, the neighborhood has seen a significant amount of both business and residential development over the last couple of decades. These include new apartments, new townhomes, condominium projects, office buildings, retail and mixed-use projects. The neighborhood offers a tucked-away community feel with exceptionally convenient access to some of the largest employers in the area. The recently updated Latrobe Park offers ample recreational opportunities, and shopping, dining and entertainment are all within close proximity.
The auction presents an opportunity buy homes with ample yard space, a rarity in much of South Baltimore. The properties will be offered both separately and as an entirety, offering options for buyers who want to buy one or both homes. Those buyers who are interested in purchasing both homes can benefit from the efficiencies of renovating side by side properties, or having the rare opportunity to create one very large townhome with the potential for more than 2,700 interior square feet plus basement.
