"Not as Warm as California, But Nearly as Nice"

Beverly Hills is yet another of Baltimore’s more charming historic neighborhoods. Featuring over 800 suburban style homes, it looks like the kind of place that Wally and Beaver ought to come running through. While much of the architecture technically pre-dates the 1950s, there are still plenty of foursquare frame houses and masonry bungalows. These more modest dwellings are set among the grander Tudor and Colonial Revival homes.

In addition to single family homes, there are enough commercial spaces to provide ample shopping and dining opportunities for the residents. There are also two churches, a large cemetery and a beautiful green space known as Herring Run Park. However, there are not any apartment complexes or other types of multi-family dwellings accept for a few larger homes that have been converted into several small apartments.

Because Beverly Hills is part of the National Register of Historic Places, much continues to be done to preserve its property values. This, along with the nice sized lots and large back yards make it a lovely place to retire to or raise a family. Just remember that the same regulations that maintain property values can also restrict what are and are not allowed to do to your home.
Pros
  • lovely homes
Cons
  • limitations due to historic nature
