Affordable Neighborhood in the Mt. Washington School District

 

Affordable neighborhood in the Mt. Washington school district


Searching for a home in Baltimore City where you'll be able to send your children to The Mt. Washington School? Would it help if the neighborhood had great single family homes priced between $220,000 and $375,000? For many of my clients the answer to both of these questions is a resounding "yes!" While the go-to zip code for looking at Mt. Washington real estate online is 21209, many would-be-home-buyers are unaware of a great section of Baltimore's Mt. Washington located in the 21215 zip code.


       House on Stuart Ave in Baltimore's Mt. Washington neighborhood


This beautiful house was snatched up by my buyer clients immediately after it came on the market in December 2012. It's situated on a double lot located on Stuart Ave in Baltimore's Mt. Washington 21215 neighborhood. Our criteria for searching this location was The Mount Washington School. My clients called this their "forever house". Sweet, right?


House on Stuart Ct in Mt. Washington Baltimore 21215


Not far from Stuart Ave, you'll find Stuart Ct. The houses on this street have great mid-century flair. It's easy to tell I'm shooting these pictures on a chilly February afternoon, the bare winter trees cast sculptural shadows on the ground. In September 2012 clients of mine purchased a delightful property on Stuart Ct. It was an estate sale property so they got a truly fantastic price. How good? How about less than $230,000 for a 2,000+ sq. ft home with an attractive yard - all in the Mt. Washington School district.


Colorful house in Baltimore's Mt. Washington neighborhood


One of the best things about the part of Baltimore's Mt. Washington located in the 21215 zip code is the artsy vibe or more specifically the artist population that's drawn to this tranquil community. You won't find a lot of fences or uniform construction, neighbors take it upon themselves to brand their homes with lots of personality. After all, this is Baltimore City.


Modern House in Baltimore's Mt. Washington


If you happen to be a mid-century modern enthuaist, as many of my clients are, you'll squeel with delight as we turn onto Rockwood Ave in Baltimore's Mt. Washington 21215 neighborhood. There are a good number of textbook fabulous mid century houses that will have you plotting the perfect spot for your Eames bookcase, Saarinen womb chair, and Eileen Gray daybed. If the mention of these design icons does not resonate with you then keep it moving, these houses are best left for architecture afficinados.


House on Merville Ave in Baltimore's Mt. Washington 21215


Along Merville Ave you'll find cottage style houses many with stone foundations. Merville Ave is a favorite of mine because of Irvin Luckman Memorial Park which is located at the bottom of the street. This park is in the middle of getting an $880,000 face lift and it's due to re-open in May 2013. Click here to read all about it. I'm hoping to secure a listing this spring just across from the park.....stay tuned.

Washington 21209. The residents are more diverse and the attitude leans even further left. This hamlet is a must-see for parents in search of an affordable neighborhood in The Mt.
