The Savage Mill historic district includes the former cotton mill which was transformed into a vibrant shopping and entertainment district and is also home to many small (artsy) businesses as well as the housing that was built for its workers.
Besides bungalows and colonials, you'll find several charming brick duplexes which originally comprised two floors plus a cellar, two bedrooms, and one bathroom on approximately 1,000 square feet. Many of these duplexes built in the early 1900s have been expanded over the years. A duplex with the original footprint will sell in the upper 200s whereas the larger models that now come with 3-4 bedrooms will run well into the 400s.
The Savage Mill historic district is one of my favorites in Howard County, and - in my humble opinion - is underrated. Since it's much less frequented than historic Ellicott City, the pace in Savage seems a bit slower (which is lovely!). Its location is a great one for commuters, sitting halfway between Washington, DC and Baltimore, Route 32 and the 95 are minutes away and residents are literally up the street from everything Savage Mill has to offer: antique center, coffee shop, boutiques, the Dive Bar & Grille that took over the old Rams Head, plus there's Terrapin Adventures, ghost tours inside the mill, the historic Bollman Truss Railroad Bridge (the only iron truss bridge in the world), and trails that will take you all the way to Columbia's Lake Elkhorn and beyond.
Homes in the historic Savage Mill district don't come on the market very often. It's best to keep a close watch on it if that is one of the charming Howard County neighborhoods, and registered historic districts, that you would love to come home to.

Could there possibly be anything more charming than a Christmas tree glistening through the window of an old home?
♥ It's always been the vintage, the old house charm, and the original details that I adore the most, that draw me in, make my [REALTOR®] heart flutter, and prompt me to pause, to listen, and then to retell their stories. I specialize in finding and marketing charming homes that are unique and rich in character, history, or both. I believe in preservation, second chances, saving the pink bathrooms, and front porch living. In this series, I highlight charming homes that I am listing to find just the right buyer for or that I am admiring with my special clients; or that have simply caught my eye while exploring the [historic] communities of Maryland and [far] beyond. Adore charming homes as much as I do? Then I'd love it if you'd follow me on Instagram, @onceuponahaus is where I grow my curated collection. ♥
