The Versatility of a Ranch Home in Baltimore

Have you thought about the versatility of a ranch not one with horses but a one story rancher with accessibility and few or no steps!

Ranchers can have have beautiful curb appeal and my favorites are the sprawling structures that have a contemporary feel..especially with cathedral or high ceilings and an abundance of glass for that light, bright, open feeling of spaciousness.

When I think rancher, I think of a forever home... a home that can house a young family with growing children, teenagers, college bound young adults, caretakers and extended family.  I think of  parents being able to age in place or stay with the family. I think of boomerang kids. I think of the grandchildren coming back home or being able to spend time with Gramps and Grandma. I think of families with disabilities. I think of friends and family with conditions that would not allow them access to other style homes.  I think of a home for entertaining where all guests are welcome regardless of age or mobility restrictions. Do you think I am more aware because of my former nursing career?

In the Baltimore area, I have a few  wonderful ranchers.

This brick rancher at 7901 Winterset Ave in the Stevenson area of 21208 was home to a family with four children...those four children are grown and have  families of their own...a wonderful place to come back for the family gatherings.

In addition to 4 bedrooms on one side of the house, there is a separate wing which could be an ideal guest space or  Au pair situation.  The previous carport area, adjacent to the kitchen, is now a two room guest suite with a full bath! This could also be a home office with a separate front and rear entrance and plenty of parking in the long driveway.  How about a real estate office?  How about an art studio? Pretty ideal. Finished lower level extends the living space of this versatile residence.


14 Timber Way in Owings Mills is a  Sprawling contemporary Cedar Rancher on 3.45 acre wooded lot located at the end of a cul de sac.

Ten foot high wood (tongue and grove) ceilings, this custom  rancher has everything you need on the first floor, 3 Bedrooms, an office, a sun room, a magnificent gourmet kitchen, living room, family room, dining room with a two way state of the art fireplace...all with hardwood floors and a garage that holds FOUR cars!

The full lower level is accessed by a spiral staircase and makes the perfect "man cave" with a full bath, bedroom, media room, workout /art studio plus an amazing amount of storage.
