What a steal! We fell in love with Stemmer House when we featured it in Houstory in May. Now The Sun reports that the Owings Mills estate–complete with 27+ acres, two barns, a pool, a pond, glorious gardens and more–will go to auction in two days, August 3. Minimum bid: $1.4 million.
It’s a blessing or a curse, depending which side of the sale your on. But how can this be? Houses with a lot less acreage and features sell for a lot more around the city and county. It would be a shame to see this lovely treasure fall into the wrong hands. (Yes, it would make a lovely B&B or wedding and Bar Mitzvah venue, but really?) We’ll keep our fingers crossed that this local historic landmark goes to a true domi-phile who will give it the tender loving care it deserves.
