Going to a Ravens or Orioles game is even better when you can walk to the stadiums from your house. Skip the traffic and expensive parking and join the sea of purple or orange walking toward the glowing stadiums. Even if you’re not at a game, you can enjoy the thrill of hearing the crowd cheer after a big play from your house. Historic Homes of Baltimore creator Jason Freeman found three houses within walking distance to the stadiums at all different price ranges.

Charming rowhome in Hollins Market


Step inside this Hollins Market rowhome and discover spacious rooms and lots of charm. An exposed brick wall, brick fireplace and restored original hardwood floors create a warm and inviting living room. The home contains a unique staircase that’s grander than you typically see in a rowhome. The narrow kitchen is updated, and it features a bonus space behind it. Upstairs, you’ll find two bedrooms, one of which has a separate sitting area that’s perfect for a home office. An updated bathroom with double sinks completes the small but charming home.

Besides the stadiums, you’re also within walking distance to Hollins Market, the B&O Railroad Museum, the Babe Ruth Birthplace and Museum, downtown, and the shops and restaurants in Pigtown.

Spacious home with Baltimore skyline views in Otterbein

This Otterbein home is on one of my favorite streets, with beautiful large trees and brick sidewalks. Inside, you’ll find the historic home, built circa 1870, has been thoughtfully renovated. The first level has a formal living room with a wood-burning fireplace, dining room, powder room and an updated kitchen that opens to a bright two-story family room. Wood floors, exposed brick walls and huge windows add character and light to the home. On the second level, there’s a large primary bedroom with a fireplace and updated bathroom, and an office that overlooks the family room below. Additional bedrooms, bathrooms and a den/playroom are on the next two levels, which include two outstanding decks overlooking the Baltimore skyline. A fenced rear yard includes a covered pergola, landscaping, and seating areas.

Besides being a few minutes away from the stadiums, Otterbein has several charming pocket parks with mature trees, including one right behind this house. The neighborhood pool is also nearby (a membership transfer is available with the house), as is the Inner Harbor, Federal Hill, and the MARC train for easy access to Washington, D.C.
