A Union Square house with five stepped-levels

The front of the red-brick house facing Baltimore's Union Square Park has a familiar look.

The exterior of the home, with white marble steps and 9-foot-tall windows, appeared in the 1997 movie Washington Square, an adaptation of the Henry James short novel. James wrote his story in 1880. The house, in the Union Square Historic District where the park and its environs were stand-ins for the New York neighborhood of the movie, dates to 1870.

Inside, the Italianate-style home's first-floor ceilings are 13 feet high and adorned by large, decorative moldings. Wood shutters collapse into wall pockets to allow the sun to pour into the house; there are wood floors throughout.
