"Simply lovely"

If you want to live in a neighborhood that combines urban convenience, suburban environment, and historical appeal, then the Lake Evesham neighborhood is no doubt the best place for you. This entire neighborhood, located in North Baltimore, has been designated as a Historic District, and for good reason. The area preserves a variety of residential architecture showing its development between 1870 and 1940. It exemplifies through it's variety of home types and architectural styles Baltimore's grown from the late 19th century through the World War II era. The neighborhood includes Victorian-era facades, bungalows and homes from the 1920s and 30s, and immediate post-war housing styles at the beginning of the baby boom years. While the neighborhood represents the efforts of several developers, the neighborhood has its own sense of time in space through its architecture, its old streetscapes, setbacks, and landscaping.

Lake Evesham is preominately white, upper class professionals. Housing values are high above Baltimore's median value, making the area very attractive to professionals and families. Because of high housing costs, it may not be best for singles or young families starting out.

Because of its designation as a Historic District, anyone with the idea of making changes to their home should keep in mind the many rules and regulations governing historic properties. But if you want to own a piece of history, then look at Lake Evesham first.
  • Beautiful, historic homes
