Won’t You Be My Neighbor – Baltimore, Maryland

By MidModMichelle

Hey, hey, I missed y’all last week! We were having technical difficulties at The Jungle Hut but everything has been sorted now. This week’s home was sent in from Candace R. at Estately, and I have since seen it making the rounds online including Circa and Curbed. It’s a showstopper y’all- heart eyes for days!!! This little time capsule gem was designed by B.N. Eisenberg in 1947 in the streamline moderne deco style. A little earlier than we usually go, but totally worth it! Let’s take a look!

This home is located at 2105 Erdman Ave, Baltimore, Maryland on a lovely wooded lot. It was designed and built by B.N. Eisenberg as his residence in 1947. (Some of the listings say it was built in 1915, which is not accurate.) It is a 2 bedroom, 2 bath, 1,189 square foot home that is being offered at $250,000. The listing is courtesy of Rachel Rabinowitz at Guerilla Realty, LLC. For more information and additional photos you can check out the listing here. From the listing:

As seen in “Washington and Baltimore Art Deco – A Design History of Neighboring Cities” 2014 and “Baltimore Deco” 1984 this is the 1947 Eisenberg Residence, “one of Baltimore’s most interesting Deco houses” designed and built by B. N. Eisenberg. Located in Mayfield with views of Lake Montebello. This on-trend tiny house awaits her new owner. Some mid-century modern furniture will be included. Rare.


(The mint green and bright pink, the door, the flamingos!!!)


(I love their color palette! And the fireplaces in the home are amazing!)

(So awesome that they repeated the wood wall for the closet, and those doors!)


(Those built-ins!! I’m already daydreaming about displaying my collections in them!)


(The kitchen is absolutely adorable, even if it is rather small.)




(Pink and blue bathroom!!)


Ahh!! Do you love it?! Are y’all Art Deco fans too? Art Deco was my segue into Mid-century Modern many many moons ago and I just adore it. Anyhoo, how has your long weekend been so far? Summer here we come!

    If I could have both the $ and a portable job, I’d brave the winters to have this home. I’d make some minor changes to suit my tastes. First would be dialing down the interior colors. (For me, that many bright colors would be like living with a crowd of constantly shouting people.)

    Also, the cowboy wallpaper is too kitch for me. Although Hobby Lobby recently sold fabric with an almost identical print, so if you like it, you could go full-on Bonanza in that room!

    I adored the pink and yellow kitchen with the steel(?) cabinets. And did you catch the backsplash behind the coffee bar? Looks like random vct/lino tiles! Sqeee!

    Also, is that a rare princess tub in the pink & blue bathroom??

    I wonder if the curved orange sectional is part of the furniture that stays? I’d like one that was more period, but it’s the curve that works in that room.

    Oh, and since when is 1,800 sq feet a “tiny house”??? 😎

      Sorry, almost 1200 sq ft. Still not tiny in my opinion!

    Wow! What a gem! The kitchen is a little crowded, but has a nice cozy feel to it. I’m noticing on the one wall in the kitchen (where the blender is)–are they possibly sample cuts of flooring? Thanks for sharing 🙂

    I love the lines of Art Deco houses and this one is truly a gem. This would have been a little dollhouse if only they had used furniture and decor that fit the era of the house. Sara’s Heywood Wakefield refinishing projects would have been perfect for this cute little place.

    This is a superb house. The decor is over the top, but I’m sure that appeals to many. I love the size and would be quite happy to live in it with a minimalist decor.

    I live about an hour from this house and unless I’m mistaken, it has been on and off the market a couple of times over the past few years. I’d live in it in a minute, but I can see where some of it is a tough sell. The black bathroom’s a little scary! I love most of the furniture, much of it overwhelms the house and the beautiful Deco shape and lines are lost. Still, I love it.

    This one is perfect. Perfect size, perfect colors, I love every interior detail (besides maybe the kitchen appliances) I love the wild colors and the furniture, everything. I wonder what it would cost to duplicate this house today?
