4023 Roland Avenue – home to Elmhurst Nursery School is currently for sale. An neighborhood institution for 58 years, the Baltimore Sun recently ran an article about the school and it’s founder and director Margaret Louisa “Lou” Pine.

“Pine has been there ever since, keeping Elmhurst going after the death of her husband, Jonathan Pine. She now owns the three-story, six-bedroom house with cedar shakes siding, located in Rolden on the border of Hampden and Roland Park, near the Rotunda mall.

The baby boom made Elmhurst a hot school, with as many as 55 enrollees, including the children of author Anne Tyler, state Sen. Jim Brochin and restaurateur Ted Bauer, the owner of the Valley Inn and Oregon Grille.

Now, the school closes with 17 prekindergartners and kindergartners, only a handful of whom “graduated” on Thursday.”*

The home is situated on a double lot, with shade trees.
