The first house where my family lived when I was a child was an old stone house. The walls were thick and the house was covered with Virginia Creeper which was beautiful green in the summer and then turned a glorious red in the fall. I have always had a thing for stone houses and cottages. Baltimore is full of them, and there’s even a neighbourhood called Stone Hill, from which my friend Nelle writes her blog, Stone Hill Farm.
I thought I’d share some of my favourite stone houses around Baltimore. Come along…
This is a house that I’ve always loved. It was sold a year or so ago after being on the market for ages. It’s been cleaned and cleared up. I wrote about it here.
Two views of the same house, which I’ve loved for years.These were probably designed by Palmer & Lambdin, architects in Baltimore in the early 1900’s, who had a certain style. I will do a post about them sometime, when I can get a lot of images of their lovely houses.
Which is your favourite?
