LOCATION & DIRECTIONS:

Charles Village, located in central Baltimore City, is among the best known and in demand neighborhoods in the Baltimore area. A major reason for the popularity is the proximity to Johns Hopkins University's Homewood Campus, which is less than two blocks from the property. Other major employers are also nearby, including Union Memorial Hospital just one block to the north, and Downtown Baltimore about 5-10 minutes to the south. The neighborhood features eclectically styled homes, substantially comprised of townhomes, many of which feature Victorian Era and Classic Revival architectural details. Shopping, restaurants and museums are all nearby, with many along St. Paul, Charles and 33rd Streets. The Jones Falls Expressway (I-83) is about one mile to the west.
