Three Extraordinary Open Houses this Saturday on Gibson Island – Oct. 13



1PM – 4PM

Please note open house times below.

Absolutely extraordinary setting – 1000 acres with seven miles of shoreline, two-thirds of the land undeveloped and owned by the Gibson Island Corporation, one third residential home sites. Click here for a spectacular video tour of this gorgeous paradise, located less than an hour from Annapolis, Washington D.C. and Baltimore. Situated on the Western shore of Maryland, there is no bay bridge crossing! The island is home to a 44-acre fresh water lake and features a private country club (membership by invitation), year-round swimming, summer camp, and golf, sailing and tennis academies as well as croquet, skeet shooting, exercise facility, garden club and more. Boaters will love the full-service yacht yard.  24hr staffed gatehouse and a The Gibson Island Police Department ensure privacy and security.

When the leaders of Brown Memorial Woodbrook Presbyterian Church disclosed a year ago that the church would merge with another congregation and sell its buildings on Charles Street, area residents were understandably concerned about what would happen to the property.

Would the church be torn down to make way for a housing subdivision? Offices? Or even sadder, a gas station and convenience store?

As developer consultant Al Barry put it to the Baltimore Commission for Historical and Architectural Preservation Tuesday, “I hope the fourth time’s the charm.”

It was. He was referencing three failed attempts by Zahlco Development to convince the 13-member preservation panel to approve plans for a 50-unit apartment complex on W. Pratt Street in Ridgley’s Delight, the historic neighborhood sitting in the shadow of the University of Maryland medical complex and Oriole Park at Camden Yards.

Imagination Meets Renovation


Whit Harvey 1925 Grenspring 1 Have you ever wondered what it would be like to take what was once a commercial or public space and reimagine it as the home of your dreams? There is a lot of that going on in Baltimore right now – old mills are being converted into condominiums and warehouses are becoming artist work/live spaces. How about a decommissioned church?

The city has scrapped an old plan to redevelop the 236-year-old Lexington Market in favor of a new arrangement with building rehab specialists Seawall Development, which officials say would retain the market’s main building while saving as much $20 million in constructions costs.
