Featured Hot Listing: 16311 Dark Hollow Rd, Upperco

OPEN HOUSE:  SUNDAY, APRIL 14,  12:00-3:00 p.m.  

Nestled among gorgeous hemlocks and evergreens in north Baltimore County sits a striking house with clean lines and a huge presence designed by Architect Brian Swanson. Driving through beautiful countryside, past rolling hills, horse farms, and quaint historic buildings to get to this contemporary stunner sets the mood for the beauty and serenity that awaits.

What does the current owner loves most about the house?  The “big sky,” visible from almost every room, reinforcing the sense of open space and the peace and privacy that only such a place can provide.


The driveway, flanked by daffodils, leads to the main entrance where a small foyer with custom shelves welcomes.  The facing wall of windows offers breathtaking views of the landscape.


The home is an art collector’s dream, starting with the iron sculpture in the driveway. The interior walls are a giant palate for the imagination, with long winding hallways and high walls as the perfect canvas for a private gallery.


An open California-style kitchen with breakfast area leads to the expansive deck providing a seamless transition to the outdoors.


A bright, sunken living room with fireplace, two story walls and an open, airy character begs for a party.


The loft, with tons of natural light and open space, is a favorite hideout of the current owner, who frequently head there to snuggle up with a good book or just take in the view.

An unexpected staircase leads to a large room expanding the length of the house, a perfect set up for a kids’ play room, exercise area, music room – the possibilities are endless!
