"Hunt No Further"

The Orchards is a lovely, upper middle income neighborhood in North Baltimore. For from the crime and violence that plagues so much of the rest of the city, its well built homes located on large, well-manicured lots typically sell for almost twice the average price of other Baltimore houses. It is particularly popular with young professional families looking for a safe, quiet place to raise their families.
The centerpiece of the community is the Elkridge Hunt Club. Established in 1878 to cater to the needs of the upper crust of Baltimore society, the club once consisted of acres and acres of rolling, wooded area dedicated to fox hunting. Today, where once bugles rang out and men and women in stylish riding habits “rode to the hounds,” residents of The Orchards and the surrounding communities meets for golf on the 18 hole course.
While most of The Orchards’ residents own their own cars, there is still some bus service in the area. Two different bus routes run from the edge of the community to other parts of the city. However, there are no local schools in the neighborhood, though there are two excellent public elementary schools nearby.
  • lovely, tree lined streets
  • no local shools or shops
