Frederick Md Neighborhood: Baker Park
Baker Park is an established neighborhood in the center of Frederick that offers stately homes surrounding the 35 acre linear park.
You’ll find many Victorian homes built in the first half of the 1900’s, some Colonials and Arts & Crafts homes also. Most of the homes were built on larger city lots, with lovely tree-lined streets.
There is one area of Baker Park where you’ll find brand new “yet historic” homes. Known as Baker Park Estates, the development has custom homes under construction by Mitchell & Best home builders priced at $1.35 million and started out with seven lots for sale at $475,000 each. The lots are each about one-fourth of an acre. Buyers can work with an architect and custom builder of their choosing but must follow community guidelines for their architectural style. Buyer representation is a option that new home buyers will want to consider.
