 Mine, Yours And Ours... Sun Rooms!  When you love nature it is obvious.  The owners of this home love the   flowers, landscaping and  the outdoors in general. There are three sun rooms, two on the front and one in the back. There is also an open porch off one of the bedrooms.So many window panes to bring light into this beautiful home built in 1850. I tried counting but ran out of time.  Would you believe over 200 window panes in each of the front sun rooms.  How would you like a home with not one, not two but three sun rooms.This property will be on the market soon. Take a look at this beauty.   How would you like a home built in 1850 in the heart of Towson, Maryland 21204This beauty is conveniently located in West Towson, minutes to the County Court House, hospitals (GBMC, Sheppard P...

Springtime...in Towson, Maryland.I bet you were expecting some pretty flowers or trees in bloom. (We do have those, too!)Well, since the weather is warm, and the sun is even warmer, my chihuahua is ready to soak it up. He likes to sun himself on the back patio. He looks forward to the warmer weather every year. He could stay out there for hours, barking at the wind, the sound of traffic, and pretty much whatever noise comes around. But he somehow does it all with his eyes closed, seemingly relaxed, barely moving, except for that little mouth.Enjoy Spring!For any real estate needs in Towson, Maryland or around the Baltimore Metropolitan area,THINK MARNEY IN MARYLAND!Marney KirkKeller Williams Excellence Realty2331 York Road, Suite 100   Lutherville Timonium, MD 21093E-mail: realtormarney...

Villagio Cafe - Baltimore, MD My friend, Dawn, and I were looking for a new place to try for lunch and my hairdresser, Mitra from Aqua Salon, recommended Villagio Cafe.  I have always loved ethnic foods, I like to try new flavors and new tastes and one of my favorites is Persian style food.   So, today we decided to give it a try and we were not disappointed. Parking was a bit of a challenge but, there are meters in front and for 50 cents you can park for an hour.   The Villagio Cafe is located at 6805 York Road in the Stoneleigh neighborhood of Towson/Baltimore.   The restaurant is comfortable with about a dozen or so tables, it is brightly lit and the staff are attentive and friendly.   We started out with Baba Ganoush.  This is one of my favorites.  I've had this elsewhere and it's n...

Is the dress blue and black or gold and white?I am sure you have heard/seen/read about this dress. Whether you care about the dress, think it is ugly, love it, etc, it has sparked a HUGE debate over the web. IS IT BLUE AND BLACK OR GOLD AND WHITE?Whatever you see, that is your reality, right?What's my point?Well, I try to tell my sellers that PERCEPTION IS REALITY.This dress has really emphasized this fact.Those who see it as blue and black are THOROUGHLY CONVINCED IT IS BLUE AND BLACK and believe those who see it as gold and white are nuts.Those who see as gold and white BELIEVE IT IS GOLD AND WHITE and there is NO telling them that it is blue and black.WHAT THEY SEE IS THEIR REALITY.Let's take this to a house.Hypothetically, there is a lovely home in Towson.The owners bought it years ...

Burger Bros - Baltimore's Best Burger We hadn't even intended on having a burger.  We were going to Towson Hot Bagels but when we got there, there was a sign on the door that they were closed at 3pm today (normally they are open until 5pm).  I had my heart set on one of their bagels (Baltimore's best bagel).  So, we stumbled into Burger Bros next door at 14 Allegheny Avenue in Towson instead.  They were right next door and the restaurant look inviting enough and looked clean.  We had an hour to wait until we could pick up my son from school and I was hungry.   We weren't sure what to expect, the restaurant was empty and it was freezing cold (inside as well as outside). I'm glad we did.  I learned that Burger Bros. was voted Baltimore's Best Burger by Baltimore Magazine.  I do love a goo...

Towson Visitors In For a Shock When Paying for Parking I met a client in Towson this morning for breakfast.  I took $1.00 out of my wallet and paid for my parking and put the ticket on the dash of my car and went in to the restaurant.  We were a little late coming out of the restaurant (5 minutes) and as I walked up to my car in the parking lot I was met by a parking enforcement officer at my car writing, what I thought was a ticket.  I got off with a warning today but he told me that the price of parking has gone up in Towson.  On July 1, visitors will now pay $2.00 an hour to park in Towson.  It used to be $1.00.  So,make sure you have extra change in your car or be prepared to pay the $4.00 maximum for 2 hours of parking in Towson with your credit card.

So, Your High Schooler is off to Towson University in the Fall Do you have a child that has recently been accepted to Towson University?  Are you now looking for accommodations for them?  Renting a room in the Towson area, close to the University could cost you as much as $1000 per month plus utilities and incidentals.  If your child wants to live on their own it will cost you more.   What if I told you, you could purchase a property within walking distance of the University and pay that much per month in mortgage payments?  What if I, then, told you  that a friend of your son or daughter could rent a room from you for $600-$700 per month to offset part of the mortgage payment?  Would you be interested?    If you think you can’t afford to purchase an investment property, there are a lot...

Yes, we are STILL anxiously awaiting Spring in Baltimore. TUESDAY (yes, March 25) brought us MORE SNOW (but luckily, it wasn't 8+" like last week -3/17 - where I wrote about it in my first post of dreaming of spring in Baltimore. It stuck mostly to the grass, foliage and houses, and only a dusting remained in the streets. WEDNESDAY brought us BITTER COLD winds where I needed gloves or my hands were freezing. Today is WARM in comparision -- as I write this, it is a whopping 37 degrees at 11:30am! (But the wind makes it feel colder!) I am looking forward tomorrow where we are hopefully hitting 57 degrees, with rain and wind, but at least it shouldn't be a cold rain! OPENING DAY FOR THE ORIOLES, Monday, March 31, looks to be our shining star -- 62 degrees and sunny. (I am hoping that is a ...
