On the Market: 2 Englewood Road

The houses on Englewood and Edgevale Road which surround Edgevale Square, a common green, are some of my favorites. Designed by Edward Palmer when he was the in-house architect at the Roland Park Corporation, these houses take their cues from the English villages which inspired much of Roland Park. 

No. 2 Englewood Road has just gone on the market for the second time in five years. The couple who own it are friends, and I am both happy and sad for their move, but love what they've done with the house. 

From the realtor's listing: 

English Country Palmer and Lambin [sic] home in one of Baltimore’s most sought-after neighborhoods. This architecturally significant, semi-detached Roland Park gem features 5 bedrooms and 3.5 baths and is completely move-in ready having been recently updated by its current owners.

This impeccable home welcomes everyone with its warmth and elegance, and offers beautiful appointments and decorator touches throughout. You’ll appreciate the gracious living areas that include a comfortable, spacious living room with a coffered ceiling, fireplace and exquisite built-ins, the inviting glass family room which opens to the patio, and the formal dining room and kitchen with walk-in pantry.

The home also features custom window treatments and wall coverings, custom light fixtures, fresh neutral paint colors, handmade cabinetry and beautiful hardwood flooring and woodwork throughout.

Travel up the gorgeous staircase to discover 2 bedrooms with a shared renovated bathroom, in addition to a primary bedroom with a new walk-in closet and gorgeous spa-like bathroom.

The spacious third level begins with a cozy sitting area on the landing which leads to the 4th bedroom and oversized versatile 5th bedroom/family room -- perfect for movie night and family get-togethers.

The beautiful newly landscaped yard with mature trees, flat front yard, 1 car garage and easy access to the secluded and hidden 2.5 acre Edgevale Park (with exclusive use by the 12 surrounding homes), complete the fabulous lifestyle you will inevitably create with this exquisite and immaculate home.

You can see why I am completely charmed by this house. The full listing is here


  1. I always love your posts. Time to do another on Wawasset here in Wilmington!

  2. Fascinating. Thank you for presenting the background of the Englewood units. My great-grandfather owned No. 6 in the 1910s and later purchased 22 Merrymount.
