5498 Springlake Way is located in the Homeland neighborhood of northern Baltimore City. LiveBaltimore.com description of Homeland:

"The neighborhood currently known as Homeland can be traced to a tract of land called "Job's Addition" surveyed by Job Evans in 1695. Further land was added in 1778. David Maulden Perine purchased the original property and added to it, so that by 1875 it finally reached its present size. One of the original planned communities in the U.S., Homeland was developed by the Roland Park Homeland Company who purchased the 391 acre parcel, then know as the Perine Estate of Homeland, in 1924 for the sum of $1,000,000. The advantages of the location of the property included the fact that its highest point sat more than 400 feet above sea level, thus making it one of the more elevated sections of Baltimore. Additionally, the rolling terrain (and subsequent naming of the streets) evoked the English flavor the Company wished to portray. The new development of Homeland was advertised in the Sunday Sun in 1924, with the sale opening at 8:00 a.m. on Sunday, 11th October 1924. At that time everything was still in the paper stage. Despite that, at the end of the first day, 89 lots had been sold. At the termination of the sale 16 days later, the number rose to 248. The first house approved by the Company was in 1924, built in 1925 - 5108 Springlake Way. In 2001, Homeland was entered into the National Register of Historic Places. Not only does this acknowledge Homeland as a premier example of American suburban development, it provides residents with tax credits to restore their homes with historically appropriate materials."

The home is near the Roland Park Elementary/Middle School, one of Baltimore City's finest public schools.  Some of the City's best private schools are also in the immediate area.  Homeland is convenient to shopping, public transportation and employment centers.  Neighborhood homes appear extremely well maintained.
