What: A dream cottage. They rarely come more charming than this — except maybe in the Cotswalds, where you’d have constant rain. Current owner, a Hopkins professor, lived here for 45 years, and commissioned the late, great landscape designer Wolfgang Oehme to create the woodland garden that surrounds the house, with its beautiful stonework, plantings and basin fountain. After meandering up the stone path, and through the heavy, arched front door, the living room is a surprise. It’s large, and in the scale of the house, feels huge, with a 18’ beamed ceiling and a large fireplace. The rest of the house is upstairs from here. A step up to the dining room, and a few more to the kitchen. A short flight up to the master bedroom, with fireplace, master bath and walk- in closet. More bedrooms and a nice den on the second floor. Everything could use, but does not absolutely need, updating. The kitchen is quite small, but for one person or a couple, it would be perfect. It would be a shame to “blow out the kitchen” into the idyllic garden, as the architectural integrity of the cottage is a big part of its appeal. There is a small unfinished basement, and a breezy covered porch, as well as central air. Read More →

We have to admit, this bit of creative vandalism made us snicker. (One question: Shouldn’t the E go, too?)
Historic illegal edits include Roland Park transformed to Rolaids Park and, more famously, a highway sign on the Baltimore-Washington Parkway reading “Welcome to Baltimore” extended by one word Hon – the “Hon Man” refreshed his lettering for 10 years’ time, serving as the inspiration for the publication, Welcome to Baltimore, Hon. What’s your favorite example of doctored signage about town? Let us hear.
On a cold, rainy Monday in April Jim Childs and Jack Coyier flew in from Iowa where they work for Garden Gate magazine. http://www.gardengatemagazine.com They came to Baltimore to photograph gardens. Monday afternoon we toured Roland Park, Guilford and Homeland. I introduced them to a handful of the areas’ finest private gardens, as well as to Sherwood Gardens. Read More →
