A circa 1790 stone home, listed on the Baltimore City List of Historic Places, will be sold at public auction April 1 at 11 a.m.
Located at 5914 Greenspring Ave. in Cheswolde, the home is believed to have been owned by Charles Carroll of Carrollton and used as a hunting lodge. Carrollton was an early advocate for independence from England, a signer of the Declaration of Independence and a U.S. Senator.
The Federal-style home comprises 2,840 square feet, according to tax records. It has three bedrooms, four fireplaces, two baths and needs extensive renovation. Wood floors and original details remain.
Until recently, the property was used as a private residence. A separate two-acre parcel surrounds the homesite and it will be offered at the same time as the house. The suggested opening bid for the auction is $100,000.
