Description

Historic Howard House (aka Shriver House) c.1893 is a superb historic estate in the Sudbrook Park Historic District of Pikesville Maryland, just minutes to downtown Baltimore. Beautifully restored and renovated, this 7 bedroom (2 ensuite) & 4 bathroom home features gorgeous wood floors, 2 staircases, a spacious gourmet kitchen with DCS gas range, granite counters & center island, luxurious bathrooms, 2 fireplaces with wood mantels and an enormous amount of charm. Nestled in a cozy historic neighborhood of late nineteenth and early 20th century summer homes for Baltimore professionals of the period, Sudbrook Park was the first American planned community and with the eventual modernized transportation and improved roads, the development blossomed into an affluent enclave of Baltimore commuters. William Howard was raised in this home in the early 20th century and in the 1960’s & 1970’s lived here with his famous Hollywood wife, Dorothy Lamour. Maryland Historical Trust informs us that “…during the the Pimilco races, Bob Hope & Bing Crosby would drop by for a visit.” Howard House has been enriched by its stewards and it can thank the current ones for the gourmet kitchen, luxurious bathrooms, the acquisition of an additional 1+ acres and much more.

The large wrap around porch is ideal for relaxing and viewing the estate’s private wooded acre and nature trails, and the brick patio with large stone barbecue is perfect for summer cookouts. A small pond with waterfall accents a meditation walkway and the expansive fenced yard includes a 2 story carriage house (c.1910), suitable for 2 cars, a work shop and plenty of second floor storage.

There are 3 adjoining lots in this sale and they make up one large nicely landscaped corner lot. A unique blend of luxury and comfort, Howard House is a stunning tribute to a by-gone era and an estate of rare and beautiful distinction, close to Baltimore and DC, yet a world away.
