"Nice place"

Cheswolde is a neighborhood that is located in the northwest section of the city. Willow Glen Road, Bonnie View Drive, Cross Country Boulevard and Clarks Lane generally form the borders of this neighborhood. The homes here are a mixture of detached single-family homes as well multi-family apartment and condominium buildings. In general the homes here are I good condition and appear to be well maintained.

One of the great things about Cheswolde is the amount of green space. In addition to most of the neighborhood being heavily wooded, dedicated green space can be found at Western Run Park. Green Spring Valley School and Ner Tamid Montessori Preschool are both located here for those with children. Older residents will enjoy spending time with friends at the Edward A. Myerberg Senior Center. Shopping and restaurants are scarce in Cheswolde, but most people would never notice.

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.

I like Cheswolde and think you should take a look. Despite no shopping or dining out to speak of, the neighborhood is really nice. This could be a good place to call home.
