Established in 1926, this small geographic area in Baltimore has noteworthy charm. The surrounding areas of Arcadia and Lauraville-Hamilton might be making a lot of movement right now, but Beverly Hills historically shows up as a Rockstar in my book.
If you want the local tour of this neighborhood start by driving down Walther Avenue. The median in the road dons mature trees, you love this and roll the windows down. To your right, you take in the view of rounded dutch doors on the hill side bungalows. For several blocks, there is an impressive stone wall off of the side walk. Nearing the end of the road before turning right on Weaver, you noticed just how many styles of homes you’ve seen: tudor, bungalow, cape cod and craftsman. You feel the urged to loop back around one more time because Beverly Hills is just that pretty.
What you can’t experience simply from driving are the character traits of the interiors. What best categorizes this community on the inside are the rounded archways, slate roofs, fireplaces galore, leaded + stained glass windows and plaster walls. Most of these homes are still without central A/C, but have whole house fans that are incredibly effective.
The brass tacks…what is it like to live here?
The community is walkable to one of the business zones of Harford Rd. Here is what a normal Sunday might look like if you called Beverly Hills home…You could get some coffee at Zekes paired with Donut Alliance, have a late lunch at Maggie’s Farm and round out your day with drinks and famous crab cakes at Koko’s Pub. Sounds like a dream, right?
The median sale price this last year is $230k of the 20 homes sold here. That would put your mortgage payment around $1500 with current interest rates around 3.5% to live here. HERE is the current market of homes available.
So you scrolled to the bottom for a synopsis…
- Beverly Hills is one of many iconic communities in the norther part of Baltimore City limits
- Homes are generally single family around $230k
- Walkable to parks and businesses
- Charm around every corner
