This home was originally posted in 2011, and sadly — conditions have gotten worse.

Property Owner: Irene Davis, same address. Interesting to note, in 2009, Heidi Kenny (of ground rent and tax foreclosure fame) filed to foreclose on this home, yet the case was subsequently dismissed.)

The glass has been smashed out and it appears people have been coming and going through this basement window.

1117 Carroll Street, rear yard is still a mess -- a dumping ground for trash and household items. The yard is so overgrown you can't see the house.

This property is the subject of a foreclosure case from 2013 that was recently reopened.  There have been no changes made to this property other than the tree that is now growing in the basement and sprouting out one of the windows.  Hopefully this property can be torn down or rehabbed, as it’s an eyesore on an otherwise decent block.

The last permit on this house expired in 2008. You can see the original post from 2010 here.

1609 Spence Street

An email from a neighbor regarding this neglected property:

We have a fairly large streak of at least ten homeowners on our 1600 block of Spence Street in Morrell Park that have taken excellent care of their properties–who have been striving to improve the neighborhood and make it home. Sadly, it barely shows. You see, we have a very bothersome problem in our neighborhood in the form of an abandoned house, located at 1609 Spence. A rotting, sloppy, empty, single family house on a large lot, SMACK in the middle of our block. Our block is defined by this one eyesore, instead of by the fruits of the hard-working people that live around it.

Sadly, this is a common story in Baltimore — decent people trying to make improvements to their neighborhood or their block, and one negligent property owner refuses to take responsibility for their eyesore. The overgrown weeds and vines, along with the boarded up windows on just one home can bring down an entire community. My guess is the folks who run the company that should be taking care of this property wouldn’t want this eyesore next to them — so why should the decent people in Morrell Park have to deal with it?

Update: Apparently Econohomes is claiming they don’t own the property (see comments section), and sold it in 2011.  Odd they could sell a house in 2011 when they didn’t purchase it until August of 2012. (Link opens a PDF).
