Hot House: Evergreen House Architect’s Roland Park Home



HOT HOUSE: 5 Club Road, Baltimore, 21210

Brick Federal Revival home in Flemish bond, circa 1900. Six bedrooms, five and a half baths, six fireplaces, two kitchens.  6,800  square feet on a half acre in Roland Park. Underground tunnel leads to garage: $949,500

What:  A Cadillac of a house.  Restrained in design, finely crafted and very comfortable. This is architect Noel Wyatt’s signature house, built for himself in 1900 as he was designing many of the grand houses of Roland Park, including Evergreen House and the original Baltimore Country Club.  Dr. Henry Wilson, a Baltimore eye-doctor, lived and practiced in this house for over 50 years. With his wife, he raised seven children (and had seven weddings) here. Dr. Wilson bought the house from Mr. Wyatt himself, so the buyer will be just the third owner.
