FEATURED HOT LISTING: Stunning Loch Raven Village Townhome Defies Expectations


Updated:  Address has been removed at new owner’s request.

If you’ve been around Baltimore, you’re probably familiar with the all brick, sturdy townhomes that are standard in many communities.  Loch Raven Village is known for it’s schools and long-term residents, but you can bet your bottom dollar that there’s a standard floor plan, with distinct rooms, a small-ish kitchen and 1.5 bathrooms, making them a little out of sync with today’s standards of open flow and function for the contemporary family lifestyle.  Now, forget everything you think you know about THIS home.  From the moment the beautiful front door opens, your mind is blown, and I guarantee there will be a smile, followed closely with a “Wow!”


The JLC Team has been doing some beautiful work in Baltimore.  Known for doing the job right, without cutting corners, attention to every detail, and design with lifestyle in mind, they have done another gorgeous job with this one.  The first thing to note, is the removal of the dividing center wall, to open up the living space.

Mt. Washington Tavern to Re-Open at the End of the Year



Five months ago, a multi-alarm fire destroyed the Mt. Washington Tavern, a long-time neighborhood staple.  Today, owners Dave Lichty and Rob Frisch released the sketch, below, of the new and improved Tavern, to re-open in the late fall/early winter.  Architect Walter Schamu of SMG Architects, whose portfolio includes the rebuild of the B&O Railroad Museum, the Hippodrome Performing Arts Center and the Bromo Seltzer Tower, and Jim Macko of Kodiak Construction whose resume includes Clipper City Brewery Company and Mustang Alley will re-build the restaurant.

“After the devastating loss we knew we wanted to go with an architect and builder who would not compromise the historic nature and personality of the tavern.  This establishment has meant so much to so many for more than 30 years.  We quickly recognized that the talent of Walter and his team along with Jim Macko are the perfect fit to accomplish this,” says Rob Frisch, co-owner, Mt. Washington Tavern.
