Neighborhood Spotlight: Family-Friendly Homeland Draws Landscape, Architecture Enthusiasts


Homeland Caretaker House

When Brian Hammock and his wife found out in 2014 that their family would grow from two children to three, the couple knew they’d be needing a little more space than the 1,500-square-foot Lake Evesham home they had lived in for seven years. The family considered moving out of the city, but after some searching they found the perfect upgrade  — a larger, 2,200 square foot home just a mile south in the historic Homeland neighborhood.

“We felt like we could get a home that really had some character at a better price than outside of the city,” Hammock said. “You just can’t find 22-inch stone walls anywhere else.”

Neighborhood Spotlight: Live, Learn, Work and Play in Eager Park


Eager Park

When Charles Aloe bought his home in Eager Park in 2015, he moved to the neighborhood formerly known as Middle East with the knowledge it was an area considered to be on the rise. However, what really sold the Baltimore transplant on the home was the affordability of such a large, newly-renovated rowhome for a fraction of the price of the home he previously purchased in Little Italy, he said.

From attending festivals at Patterson Park to eating at the latest ethnic eatery to open on Eastern Avenue, Highlandtown residents have so many reasons to love city life. The Southeast Baltimore neighborhood has welcomed immigrants since 1866 and remains a welcoming neighborhood for new residents today. Originally settled by Irish, German, Polish and Italian immigrants, the area now hosts a mix of ethnicities, including longtime residents and a recent wave of Hispanic and African residents. The neighborhood is also home to the largest arts district in Maryland—the Highlandtown Arts & Entertainment District — and boasts its fair share of galleries, artist studios, murals and arts and cultural activities.
