Perched atop a hillside in historic Sykesville reigns this Victorian beauty that my clients and I got to admire last weekend. Truly a home that reminds you to slow your pace and appreciate history, your surroundings, and the very moment. A full-sized wrap around porch, pocket doors, glass door knobs, claw foot tub, stained glass windows, wood floors, front and back staircases... much of the original details of this Queen Anne Revival era home have been preserved and its charm retained. The front porch is no doubt one of its most inviting features beckoning for your company to watch the world go by. Among the other noteworthy attributes are its attic, a spectacular unfinished space that allows your imagination to run wild, and the beautiful 1.7 acre property.  This Victorian beauty on Sp...

They Said It Was A Pretty Stone, Brick & Granite HomeThe owner was a former stonemason from Germany. Asking about the condition, I was told this unique home was in immaculate exceptional condition. So I said: "Show me."   During this past couple of weeks, I have received photos, by text, of this Carroll County custom home with a deck off the owner's suite, extensive landscaping, and a two-car garage.Today, I toured the property with the owner. What a delight meeting and talking to the original owner of this custom-built property. It was everything they said and more. Pride of ownership was evident with so much custom brick and stone used in the extensive landscaping, pathways, and immaculate gardens.  Undecided where they will be moving, it's not ready to list. So we will just stay in t...

 At the end of April, I posted We need a Carroll County Home"I am so looking forward to finding this young couple a new home. They are moving to our Baltimore area from Georgia to be closer to family and are expecting their first child. They would like to move mid-June.''  Yesterday June 18th, we went to settlement on this perfect home. It has everything on their wish list and more, including a beautiful piece of land over an acre and a half, an excellent kitchen, and an outdoor pond and water garden.Going to call this one "outdoorable."Love when plans come together.Please join me in wishing Dana and David a lifetime of happiness in their new home, making good memories for the growing family.    To safely buy or sell a homeCall Margaret Rome
