"Heritage and convenience"

Of all the neighborhoods in Baltimore, Guilford is perhaps the most unique. It has a rich historical and architectural heritage that earned it a designation as a National Register Historic District. Planned by the Olmsted firm and developed by the Roland Park Company in the early 1900's, Guilford has stunningly beautiful architecture, community parks, streets lined with mature trees, the world-famous Sherwood Gardens, and a prime location that is a short commute to downtown Baltimore. Anyone with an address in this neighborhood would truly have one of distinction.
Guilford contains about 800 single-family homes ranging in size from cozy cottages to stately mansions. The neighborhood provides families with a quality of life and a unique environment rarely found in an urban setting such as Baltimore's . Guilford is minutes from the Johns Hopkins Homewood campus, Loyola College, the College of Notre Dame, an array of excellent neighborhood restaurants, the Baltimore Museum of Art and the City's finest public and private schools.
The Guilford Association oversees and enforces the Deed and Agreement. The covenants of the Deed and Agreement assure that the integrity of the community is maintained and that the original design standards are followed. For this reason, Guilford may not be a neighborhood of choice for those looking to make substantial design changes or home improvements.
