Baltimore's Most Underrated Neighborhoods (2)
Anneslie Baltimore County

FACT: Anneslie is named for the Villa Anneslie, an Italianate villa built as a summer home during the mid-19th century that still stands in the center of the neighborhood.

PRICE RANGE: $300,000 to high $400,000s

Located in Towson just north of the Baltimore City line, Anneslie is as walkable as any urban neighborhood, but offers the space and comfort of the suburbs.

Amy Kline, an Anneslie resident since 1997, said the mixture can’t be beat. “It is city living but it’s in the county. You can walk to shops, several churches, banks, Towson and Belvedere Square, but you have land and are in a neighborhood,” she said. A new location of ultra-popular ice cream shop The Chamery joined the community this summer.

Kline, who lives with her husband and three daughters, was drawn to the neighborhood by its location and its history. “We wanted something with character, not a new home,” she said.

The community’s original homes include a mixture of bungalow, American foursquare and cottage styles, built during the first half of the 20th century. They combine architectural features like stone fireplaces and stucco archways with suburban conveniences, like driveways and garages.
