Not unlike many other Northern Baltimore City neighborhoods, Mount Washington’s origins were based on a desire for inner city residents to escape the oppressive heat of the city. As one of the first “street-car suburbs” of Baltimore, Mount Washington quickly grew into a year round community. Comprised of roughly 1600 residences, Mt. Washington’s varied housing types, ranging from 100-year old Victorian homes to modern-style flats and comfortable cottages to condominiums, offers something for everyone.
Located about 15 minutes north of Baltimore’s downtown area and just minutes from Baltimore County, homes for sale in Mount Washington offers residents the opportunity to live in a community with tree-lined streets all conveniently located to shopping centers, recreation facilities, parks, and public transportation. Helping to preserve the quality of life for residents and visitors alike is a triad of associations that include Mount Washington Improvement Association, the Mount Washington Village Merchants Association and the Mt. Washington Preservation Trust, Inc.
In addition to its housing inventory, Mount Washington’s is often known for its popular commercial centers which include:
However, shopping is not all there is to do. On the Northwest edge of Mount Washington is Luckman Park where you can play tennis, picnic or walk through the woods. At the southeast end of the neighborhood, there is the University of Baltimore Fields for playing lacrosse, rugby, and soccer and a golf driving range open to the public. Mt. Washington also boasts two swim clubs: the Mt. Washington Swim Club, a neighborhood non-profit summer time swim club, and Meadowbrook, a year-round swim club and fitness center with Olympic-size swimming pools that where Olympic swimmers Michael Phelps, Katie Hoff, and Anita Nall all trained. More open space can be found at the Cylburn Arboretum and the Mt. Washington Arboretum.
Mount Washington is also well known for its public transportation. This, most notably, includes the Central Light Rail line which has one stop located in historic Mount Washington Village, and another that is closer to the Mount Washington Mill at the nearby Robert E. Lee Park. Light Rail service operates to downtown Baltimore, Hunt Valley, Camden Yards and BWI Airport every 10–15 minutes at most times.
