Ashburton ZIP codes: 21215
Ashburton has been home to Baltimore’s African-American elite since the early 1950s. Current Mayor Catherine E. Pugh lives in the neighborhood, former Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake grew up in the neighborhood, former Mayor Kurt Schmoke owns a home in the neighborhood, and multiple city and state delegates call the neighborhood home. Beautiful architecture, well-kept landscaping, and streets lined with mature trees are signatures of the Ashburton community. Walk to nearby Lake Ashburton in Hanlon Park or take a quick drive to Mondawmin Mall (featuring a Target, a Forever 21, and many other stores).

What I love most about my neighborhood
Baltimore is a very unique city with excellent neighborhoods in the midst of variable urban living. I can be inspired to give back with a multitude of causes and non-profits to assist, or relax and people watch in quaint cafes, like On The Hill Cafe in Bolton Hill (SO European!!!) or Harbor East Waterfront. The plight of North Avenue has been morphed to Station North- how can you not love the resiliency of this city. Ashburton- a lovely tree lined, middle class, single family home neighborhood, perfect to raise a family, with Hanlon park in walking distance and all the major highways in a 10 min drive. West side living at it's best, if only we had a Whole Foods, but finally Starbucks!!!!
What brought me here
I was born and raised in Baltimore, it will always hold a place in my heart whether I am near or far- with property to call my own!
