Top Stories: Goat Island for Sale, Cheap Lighthouse Near Baltimore for $15K, Mansion on Market in Roland Park

0

 

The most popular story on our site this week may have looked like a spotlight on just any old piece of land on the market, but really, it was all about the goats. Bradshaw’s First Purchase has actually been up for sale for months, but it only recently grabbed Marylanders’ attention — and who can blame them? It’s a secluded 55-acre isle located right off of Smith Island on the shore, and it comes with a herd of about 30 goats.

The owner of the land told The Daily Times of Salisbury his parcel is known to locals as Goat Island, nevermind its actual formal name. Evidently, the island has a long history with goats, though this bunch is relatively new; the old herd was reportedly wiped out by a particularly rough winter two decades ago.

Whoever wants the land and its goats has to shell out $1.5 million. If that seems steep, just know that 10 years ago, the owners were asking $15 million.

Top Stories: $1.3M Roland Park Victorian for Sale, Traffic Cameras Return to I-95 (and to City, Soon), ‘Mansplaining’ Mural at Hopkins

0

Our top post this week was Cynthia McIntyre’s Hot House column about a historic Roland Park Victorian mansion that recently hit the market at a price of nearly $1.3 million. The nine-bedroom home has retained classic features — cupolas, keyhole windows, carved balustrades and wood trim, to name a few – even through a 2004 renovation that gave it a new paint job, roof, plumbing and electrical work, as well as restored windows.

The abode at 5607 Roland Avenue was originally built in 1897 as a model for a planned development called Normandy Heights that never quite materialized. Architect George F. Barber designed eight houses set back from Roland Avenue to serve as livable blueprints.

Despite its ornate trappings, Cynthia noted its “scale and simplicity create an airy, modern feeling that many Victorian homes don’t have,” and said a buyer “could, by opening all the pocket doors, have a virtually open floor plan.”
