 ***UPDATE*** This property has sold
In Baltimore's Hampden neighborhood along a stretch of Roland Ave, just below The Avenue, there has been a significant amount of real estate flipping over the past two years. Fixer upper houses are being acquired in the 100's and being re-sold in the 300's.

Development of the Medfield neighborhood primarily occurred in the 1920's, both single family homes with large yards and classic Baltimore rowhouses. As a child I referred to the single family homes in Medfield as "Hampden Mansions" compared to the surrounding rowhouses they looked enormous … (0 comments)
