"Nice, but few amenities...."

Winchester is a neighborhood in the southwest section of the city. Braddish Avenue, Riggs Avenue, Winchester Street, North Franklintown Road, and the set of railroad tracks adjacent to Belmont Avenue generally form the borders of this neighborhood. The neighborhood is primarily a residential homes made up of attached single-family “row home” styled structures found throughout Baltimore. Most of the homes appear to be relatively well maintained.

There is not much else in Winchester besides homes. The neighborhood has no dedicated green space for the residents, although Gwyenns Falls and Leakin Parks are nearby. Shopping and dining options are very limited. Rosemont Elementary Middle School, Friendship Prep Academy and New Song Academy are nearby. There are numerous bus stops located throughout the neighborhood for those wishing to take advantage of public transportation.

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.

One of the things that one should look into if you are considering a move into Winchester is the amount of use the railroad tracks gets during the day and night. Be sure to make an informed decision as to the noise level before buying here. If you can live with the lack of amenities within Winchester, this may be a neighborhood worth considering.
