Modern Baltimore?

Now that the greater Baltimore area has become somewhat of a bedroom community for D.C. (yoo’ve seen the ads on the Metro and probably know somone who commutes), I’ll highlight now and again some of the mid-century modern homes you can find in the suburbs of Charm City. I can only imagine what this 1963 MCM would cost if it were in Bethesda or McLean. The 3/4.5 home on more than 4 acres in Owings Mills looks like it was ripped from California and relocated to Maryland–the neighborhood is even called Velvet Valley. You have post and beam construction, stone and wood walls, wide expanses of glass and cool stand-alone fireplace in the corner of the master bedroom. Not to mention the pool, pool house and tennis court. For $795K. Take a look.
