"Large custom homes here"

Blythwood is a outstanding neighborhood surrounding Loyola College. West Cold Springs Lane, North Charles Street, Wyndhurst Avenue and Winslow Road generally form the borders of this neighborhood. The homes here are very high end, large detached single-family homes in excellent condition. Many of the homes have pools. Besides Loyola College, there is one large commercial building located within the neighborhood.

Although there are no stores, schools, restaurants, places of worship or dedicated green space within Blythewood, this is an excellent neighborhood to live in if you can afford the custom homes here. The lots are large and heavily wooded with plenty of space from the neighbors. There are a number of bus stops located along North Charles Street.

Like many neighborhoods in large cities, crimes against people and property can occur at any time and crime rates can vary from street to street and day to day. As always, check recent crime statistics to make an informed decision on any neighborhood you are considering living in or visiting.

This is a great neighborhood if you can afford to buy a home here. I know I would like to live here!
