Charming Home of the Week: stone and slate Tudor.

By
Real Estate Agent with Thompson Company, REALTORS® 240.593.2860 MD594797

After leaving an appointment at a home with a fabulous view of the Baltimore oasis that is Gwynns Falls/Leakin Park, I had to explore the neighborhood a bit.

Welcome to Hunting Ridge, a designated historic community in Baltimore City that was named after the high ridge that extended all the way through Catonsville. At one point there was a mansion called Hunting Ridge where now stands the Edmondson Shopping Center. All the roads in this community carry the names of 18th and 19th century property owners, like Thomas Winan, a railroad industrialist. 

Entering this charming community off Edmondson, you'll be greeted by a Tudor home built in 1928. I snapped the picture below out of my car window.. the power lines don't add any nostalgia (sorry!), but the 1920s architecture definitely does. Its exterior features the characteristic high pitched roof with side gables and dormer windows, arched doorways, and classic materials like slate, stone and stucco. 

Most of the homes in Hunting Ridge were built between the 1920s and 1940s, Tudors, colonials and craftsman bungalows are lining its streets. The subdivision borders Rt. 40 and Leakin Park and is just minutes from Rt. 70 access.

I could live here, how about you?

♥ It's always been the vintage, the old house charm and the original details that I adore the most, that draw me in, make my [REALTOR®] heart flutter, and prompt me to pause, to listen, and then to retell their stories. I specialize in finding and marketing charming homes that are unique and rich in character, or history, or both. I believe in preservation, second chances, saving the pink bathrooms, and front porch living. In this series I highlight charming homes that I am listing to find just the right buyer for or I am admiring with my special clients; or that have simply caught my eye while exploring the [historic] communities of Maryland and [far] beyond. Adore charming homes as much as I do? Then I'd love it if you'd follow me on Instagram, @onceuponahaus is where I grow my curated collection. ♥

Isn't it beautiful Nina Hollander, Broker? I love the slate and stone combination, the arches and dormers... it always catches my eye.

Hello Andrea - your appointment inspired an architectural (along with a bit of history) tour of the neighborhood.  The sights we can see and the information we can learn can certainly provide an abundancy of "food for thought" on many levels.  The result - quite satisfying.

I actually build in a little buffer time when I go on appointments Michael Jacobs, so I can look around a bit, learn the streets if unfamiliar to me, see what's nearby, get a feel for the neighborhood.. and quite often, I get pictures of homes which then prompt me to research and/or I end up chatting with residents.

I like the look of the homes that you share with us, definitely have better architecture than what the builders are putting out these days.

I couldn't agree more Brian England! I can't decide which architectural style I adore the most though, I love them all and many of these homes are full of surprises and unique quirks.

Thanks Joan! There were a few more that caught my eye. I'll have to go back on a sunny day when the temps are above freezing and walk around.

Andrea, did you get a lot of snow in your area?   I know Boston got hit hard.

We lucked out this time around Joan Cox! We only got a little bit of snow but it's been SO very cold. Spring can hurry up, I would be ready now.


Thank you so much for checking in!
