The homey-meets-hip vernacular of the "modern farmhouse" concept has struck a chord with buyers in Edgewood and Ormewood Park lately, and that appears to hold true with this Reynoldstown property, too. Listed at $489,000 last month, records show the tricked-out new-build was under contract in about four days. Beyond the location — it's roughly four blocks from the train-tracks-for-now Eastside Trail — the perks here include general space (four bedrooms in 2,500 square feet), imaginative fixtures, barn-style doors and reclaimed wood in unexpected places (above the vanity, in the wet bar). Some might quibble with a lack of garage at this price point, but the off-street parking appears ample. Though the style might seem progressive, the dual-fan front porch and tin roof help keep it pleasantly in context. If context is a concern.
