Planning Ahead for Old Age: A Custom-Designed, Completely Accessible House In Perry Hall


Hot House: 4520 Joppa Road, Perry Hall, MD 21128



L-shaped custom-designed ranch house, circa 2001, wood frame with vinyl siding, completely handicapped accessible. 3,000 sq. ft., with 4 bedrooms, 4.5 baths on a private, landscaped, quarter acre lot. Main floor master bedroom, roll- in shower, extra-wide hallways, ramps, vehicle transfer area: $439,000


What: A basic template for a disabled-access house. In pristine condition, this rancher looks like a model home. “I’ve had more interest in this house than any of our other houses,” says the realtor – an indication of the rapidly emerging  market for houses where aging baby boomers can stay in place despite physical limitations.  The current owners designed the house for their disabled daughter, and while every aspect of her needs has been accommodated, the house does not look or feel like a “handicapped house.” The entrance ramp is under the carport, and is not visible from the street. Inside, the spaces are open, and the hallways are wide, allowing a comfortable turning radius for a wheelchair.  Walk though the front door, past the living room into an open, spacious kitchen where the family can be together. Nice finishes and appliances – hardwood and ceramic tile floors, granite counters — make it feel luxurious, and large windows look out onto a sunny backyard. There are two good-sized bedrooms on the main floor, one with an extra large en suite bathroom and big roll-in shower. A shower chair, hand-held faucet and grab bars all aid in accessibility. Built-in storage and shelving (with low-reach availability) here and thoughout the house accommodate large equipment and keep down clutter. The downstairs is another large open space — a great family room or in-law suite. Everything is bright and clean, really like a new house.

UPDATE: 15-year-old PHHS shooter charged with attempted first-degree murder


The Baltimore Sun is reporting that one student has been shot on the first day of school at Baltimore County’s Perry Hall High School. The student, whose name has not been reported, has been flown to shock trauma. According to police, students are being escorted to the Perry Hall Shopping Center. The shooter is apparently in custody.

One site claims to have found the shooter’sFacebook and Twitter pages, on which he professes his love for the Manson Family and Rammstein, and perhaps even announces his plans for the shooting.

Another site claims that the shooter was a victim of bullying and assembled the rifle used in the crime in the bathroom.

UPDATE:  Police have charged Robert Wayne Gladden, Jr., 15, with attempted first-degree murder and assault.  He has been charged as an adult, the Baltimore Sun reports.

The victim remains in critical condition at an area hospital.

Several news organizations are reporting that a Facebook post from a Perry Hall student read “first day of school, last day of my life,” but it has not been officially confirmed to be the Facebook page of Gladden.

The family of the shooter has issued the following statement: “We are horrified. We did not see this coming and our thoughts and prayers are with the victim and the victim’s family.”

Perry Hall Man’s Lame Defense Fails Him in Biofuel Fraud Trial

Biodiesel, something never produced by Clean Green Fuel

The Perry Hall man who stood accused of selling phony biofuel credits to commodities brokers and oil companies was convicted yesterday of wire fraud and money laundering.

Rodney R. Hailley, 33, founded Clean Green Fuel to sell biofuel credits to companies that needed to meet quotas set by the Environmental Protection Agency. And to lower his overhead he decided not to actually produce any fuel. A really brilliant plan, except for it being fraudulent.
