North Baltimore home sells for $1.25 million

The priciest home to sell in Baltimore in September came with plenty of the usual upscale touches, plus some less typical ones.

"We sold it furnished — a lot of furniture conveyed, let's put it that way," said Bob Lucido, the listing agent for the property, which sits just shy of the city-county line in the North Roland Park/Poplar Hill neighborhood.

The six-bedroom Colonial on Washingtonville Drive sold for $1.25 million, the top city sale that month and No. 14 in the Baltimore region.

Mark Powers, who sold the house with wife Bonnie, built it in 2003 — along with the rest of the small subdivision. (Mark Powers and brother Jeff own homebuilder Powers Homes.)

"Everything was truly, truly custom," said Lucido, president of the Bob Lucido Team at ReMax Advantage Realty in Fulton. "They had walnut floors, they had a kitchen that had two dishwashers — it was just a gorgeous kitchen. … Every component of the house had a custom feature. There was no dollar spared."

Among the elements: a family room with a two-sided fireplace, skylights in the loft level, a movie theater, a game room and a pond. Two ponds, in a manner of speaking: a small one off the patio and the larger community pond abutting the backyard.

"The buyers love the house and the furniture," Lucido said. But not everything sold with the property. "We had a Bentley in the garage; we had to keep telling people the Bentley was not included."

      Synthetic turf fields are made of a synthetic grasslike material, to which 40,000 ground-up rubber tires are added as "in-fill." It is the out-gassing of chemicals from these ground-up rubber tire "crumbs," as well as the rubber crumb dust, that pose the greatest health concern to the athletes.

      There was a moment when I realized that Bob Caret just might be crazy. It was in 2005, during one of the periodic meetings I had with the then-Towson University president. He was laying out his vision for what he called a "metropolitan university." To Mr. Caret, schools like Towson should serve...
