Guilford in Baltimore
Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland, Sell Your Home With Margaret Rome ( HomeRome Realty )
Guilford in Baltimore Guilford Mansion Guilford is one of those neighborhoods that seems to have grown up among its gardens and gracious ways. Originally comprised of patents granted to British citizens from the mid-1600s through the 1700s, the area was valued for its "gentle swells, which has many beautiful views of the city and bay." The entire area sold in 1780 as confiscated property to a Revolutionary War General who gave Guilford its name. The area then passed through other hands until it was sold to the Guilford Park Company. Planning of the landscape design began in 1911 under the direction of Frederick Law Olmsted, and active development of Guilford began in 1913. Johns Hopkins University This residential area of almost 700 homes has everything from modest townhomes to stately, historic mansions, most of which were constructed in the 1920s and 1930s. Built in what was once the country, Guilford retains a spacious feeling even as it is surrounded by the city that long ago grew up around it. The neighborhood reaches out to its surrounding communities, and benefits from being near the Homewood campus of Johns Hopkins University and Union Memorial Hospital. Guilford House Spring is an especially good time for a stroll through the area to enjoy the lush landscaping that makes this area a visual treat. It's not surprising that homeowners go all out for their trees and flowers, since a favorite section of Guilford is the massive Sherwood Gardens. The Gardens are a center of community activity, especially in the spring when a spectacular display of tulips brings thousands of visitors to the more than six-acre park. Sherwood Gardens Begun in 1927 by a local petroleum pioneer and conservationist, John Sherwood, the gardens started as his hobby and grew into a treasured enclave in Baltimore city. When Sherwood died in 1965, he left enough money to maintain the gardens for a year. The Guilford Association then purchased the gardens and some additional lots from the estate, and has continued to care for them ever since. The best part of Sherwood Gardens? There are no fences or gates, and the public is welcome to stroll leisurely through the grounds and enjoy the 80,000 tulips and other spring flowering bulbs, azaleas, dogwoods, and magnolias. After Memorial Day weekend, the tulip bulbs are dug up and sold for 25 cents each. With this contribution from Sherwood Gardens, is it any wonder that Guilford is known for its gardens?

Lets Take a Walk in Guilford
Rachel Rabinowitz, The Baltimore Realtor (Guerilla Realty)
It was absolutely beautiful weather today here in Baltimore. It’s early January yet somehow the temperature soared to 65 degrees. I quickly came down with a case of spring fever. My mind turned to Sherwood Gardens in the Guilford neighborhood. Outside my front door the entrance to the Guilford neighborhood beckons. It’s one of Baltimore’s grandest neighborhoods and it’s the perfect place for a Spring walk My preferred route is to stroll up Greenway. It’s not a road or avenue or boulevard, it’s simply “Greenway” and it’s one of the nicest streets in Baltimore. Quiet paths and stately gates connect remarkable residences to the sleepy city street. It’s hard to believe we are in the middle of Baltimore City. The houses are beautiful too, I’m just not showing them here to protect my neighbors privacy. Greenway is lined with Parisian style streetlights. At dusk when the lights illuminate it is magic. Throw in some fireflies and it’s a perfect evening. Sherwood Gardens is located on Greenway. Created in the 1920’s and maintained by the Guilford Association, “More than six acres in size, Sherwood Gardens has no gates, fences or other barriers. The public may stroll at leisure through the grounds. There is no admission charge and a reservation is not required.”  (Guilford Association Website) http://www.guilfordassociation.org/sherwood/ It is simply one of the loveliest places in Baltimore City, come spring the Tulip beds are a sight to be seen! When I walk there in the evenings, I often see young couples taking their engagements pictures among the tulips. The pictures in this post were taken last August one afternoon when I had the place to myself. I am so grateful to have this resource walking distance from my home, I am always inspired by the plantings. Here is where we’ll end our walk, a quiet bench under a shady tree. Come to Baltimore and take a walk up Greenway to Sherwood Gardens. You’ll be enchanted by the sights and astounded by the real estate. I’ll see you there.
