Margaret Rome knows how to throw a party!

Bridget, This is a wonderful recap of one my favorite listings and favorite sellers.
Janet and Joel really  know how to use their custom home to make everyone feel welcome and comfortable.
Bridget captured the day of good food, good company, good networking and showing off a fabulous home.

Our lovely host and hostesses, Margaret Rome, Realtor extraordinaire, flanked by Joel and Janet, the current owners and happy sellers to be of 14 Timber Way Ct Reisterstown, MD 21136.  They are sitting at the island in the lovely and spacious kitchen.  Can you see those built-ins behind them?  Wouldn't that be a fantastic place for all your books or tchotchke's?  You could even turn that area into a home office, that's what Janet did many years ago.  Just perfect!

Margaret was so happy to have Chris Hooksand her broker Joe Pino (just dipping a toe into the puddle, Come on in Joe, the water is fine!) make the drive from New Jersey to attend the Garden party.  Don't you just love how much light comes into this great kitchen, even on a rainy day in Baltimore?!

 Margaret, what did you think of the coddies?  We thought they were so tasty!

I LOVE, Love, Love this hall way!  Can't you just picture the possibilities?  Someone at the garden party said that it would be a great hall for match box car races!

I don't even think the folks on Hoarders could fill up this storage area!  It's HUGE!

Check out this awesome custom kitchen cabinet, that has two separate racks, one behind the other, they swing out for easy reach!

 Spice Cabinet...wow!

Under cabinet trash cans....don't you just love the color of the cabinets?  The counters are a gorgeous silestone (I think)  There's plenty of storage in this fabulous custom kitchen!  Plenty of room for all the cooks to stay out of each other's way, and a great area for entertaining!  This is a home built for spending time with family and friends.

After a wonderful afternoon, it was time to head out.  The last of the party guests reluctantly gathered their things (think our hosts and this home made them feel welcome?), and headed out the door, through the lovely covered porch with beautiful flowers all around, past the four car garage, and up the driveway carved through the forest of trees.  The setting of this contemporary custom built home really gives one the feeling  you are much farther away from all the conveniences that are really just a short drive away.  In just a few minutes, Sydney and I hopped on 795 and were on our way home, the sun even decided to peek out from behind the clouds.
Can't wait for the next time the Active Rainers gather...I hear that Martha Brown's hosting a Garden Party in Annapolis soon.  I sure hope we are all invited!
