"Great neighborhood"

Cedarcroft is a neighborhood that is located in the north section of the city with lots to offer its residents. Gittings Avenue, York Road, East Lake Avenue and Bellona Avenue generally form the borders of this neighborhood. The homes here are typically detached single-family homes. In general the homes here are in good condition and appear to be very well maintained.

One of the great things about Cedarcroft is the amount of green space, as most of the neighborhood being heavily wooded. There is no dedicated green space such as a park in the neighborhood. Cedarcroft School is the only school located in Cedarcroft on Cedarcroft Road. Shopping and dining options are available including a Giant grocery store in the nearby York Road Plaza. There are no places to worship here, but there are numerous places in adjacent neighborhoods.

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 neighborhood that will be towards the top of any list of neighborhoods in Baltimore. I know that I really like it s it has what many are looking for in the American dream.

"Great for Families"

Cedarcroft is a delightful, upscale neighborhood in one of Baltimore’s most sought after historic areas. While most of the homes were originally built during the 1920s, they have been well maintained thanks to the vigilant efforts of the neighborhood’s governing board. By maintaining high standards of both construction and exterior design, the community has seen housing prices rise steadily over the decades to a high of the half-million mark in the past few years.

Another major asset is the neighborhood’s strong sense of community. Residents gather several times each year for holiday celebrations and pot luck picnics. Most of the homes are owned by wealthy professional families who work in Baltimore or Washington D.C. There are no public schools in the area so most families send their children to private and parochial schools, such as the local Cedarcroft School, housed in the historic Church of the Nativity.

What strikes a person driving through this neighborhood is how well maintained the homes are and how much they look like they must have when originally built. The main difference is that the trees that were then seedlings have now grown into overarching tunnels that provide cools shade in the summer and sturdy wind breaks in the winter, creating an almost cavernous feel along the narrow streets.
