The historic Dumbarton House in Pikesville could still be yours.
The mortgage company in possession of the 140-year-old Victorian mansion rejected the top bid of $800,000 at a public auction yesterday, so it remains on the market. The asking price is $1.2 million.
The main portion of the storied house was built in 1860 by one of Baltimore's wealthiest residents as a wedding gift to his son. It now sits on just one acre, down from 479 acres more than a century ago. It has six bedrooms, 5 1/2 bathrooms, six fireplaces and 12-foot ceilings.
