Great streets of Catonsville, Maryland- Dutton Avenue One of my favorite Streets in the Catonsville 21228 zip code is Dutton Ave. One block of homes between North and South Rolling Road in Historic Catonsville it is still close to all the conveniences of the area. Apart from the fact it is the quickest cut-through from Frederick Road to Edmondson Road to avoid the traffic at Hillcrest Elementary School, it is also one of the quirkiest Streets in the 'ville. It's a straight street that is approximately 1/4 of a mile long with lots of lush mature trees on either side.    No two houses are alike. The turn over is very small and in fact the last home to sell on this street was in November of 2008.   I used Picnik to give my pictures a more antiquated look. These are all homes on Dutton Ave,...

September is the perfect month to visit the 37th Annual Catonsville Arts & Crafts Festival on September 12, 2010. This yearly festival is a true highlight in the Catonsville calendar.  Each year, rain or shine, hundreds of crafters and artisans come to the Frederick Road business district between Bloomsbury Avenue ~Ingleside Avenue and Melvin Avenue in Catonsville and set up stands to display their products.

Fresh seasonal produce, free range eggs, local meats and home made goodies are just some of the items that are popular at Maryland Farmers Markets. Every day across the state you can find a well organized FARMERS MARKET to enjoy wholesome delights. Catonsville offers two Farmers Markets. Wednesdays at the Bloomsbury Community Center (108 Bloomsbury Ave.) : 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. May 5 - November 24 and a brand new Sunday market at 746 Frederick Road (behind Friendly's) on Sundays: 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. May 16 - November 21. On a Sunday morning it is a pleasure to peruse all of the local offerings. Nothing beats the taste of sweet Maryland corn. Bison Jerky? Some days local emu steaks can be found too. Local musicians too. It's a great local event to support. Come out to Catonsville o...

New Homes in Catonsville - New Construction - What Do You Have to Choose From?  If you're looking for a new home in Catonsville, first of all - you have to decide - what does ‘new' mean?  For you, does ‘new' mean that the home has never been lived in, or does it mean that a home has been built within the past six months? It really depends on what matters most to you, but because of what has happened in the Real Estate Market recently, there are many homes that have never been lived in that were built up to two years ago.  So if you are searching for a new homes in Catonsville, and are limiting your search to homes built in 2009 or 2010, you may be missing some great homes!!! New homes in Catonsville are few and far between - they're a little bit hard to find.  Because Catonsville is an ...

  Frederick Road Fridays.   If you are looking for a great way to wind down after the work week there is nothing better than coming out to Catonsville Maryland and enjoying a warm Friday evening in July and listening to some good music.

Facebook in the Baltimore County area was a flurry today as the group SAVE CATONSVILLE'S FOURTH gained strength in numbers. The word on the street was that Baltimore County Public School is changing its land use policy, meaning no fireworks at Catonsville High school for July 4th, no concert, and no games and races. By the end of the day the news was good. County Councilman, Sam Moxley has been in contact with the BCPS system. They now understand the importance of this community event and are NOT, Sam repeats, NOT looking to displace the fireworks or games! The Fireworks remain a highlight of the Independence Day celebrations.

The 2010 Catonsville Fourth of July Annual Parade was even more Patriotic and extravagant than previous years. Most in part to the milestone in years for Catonsville. Catonsville celebrates 200 years. Although the local weather forecast predicted a comfortable 88 degrees, it was instead a very sweaty and sticky 90+ degrees, but no hotter than usual. The entire day was actually on July 3rd. The reason why the change was made was reported in the "Catonsville Times".  "With Independence Day falling on a Sunday and to keep from blocking roads and upsetting area churchgoers, the annual holiday festivities will be held on Saturday." Here is a video snapshot of the 2010 Catonsville Independence Day Annual Parade.   If you or someone you know is thinking of Buying or Selling property in Howard ...

If you are unfamiliar with Catonsville in Baltimore County and happen to drive through on Frederick Road between June 15th and July 4th, you will be scratching your head about what you would see. THE CATONSVILLE CHAIRS. It's a local phenomenon. Residents start to stake their claim for the best locations to see the famous 64th Annual Independance Day Catonsville Parade  (This year on Saturday July 3rd).Every kind of lawn chair, deck chair, fold up chair, benches and even blankets line the streets. Yesterday there was even a toilet sitting on the side of the road. Today it has disappeared- Did someone get offended, steal it or use it?

What Kind of Home Can I Buy in Catonsville for Under $300,000?  I get asked this question a lot.  When you know what's most important to you, finding a home in Catonsville that fits your budget doesn't have to be a challenge. The answer to this question begins with whether you are looking for a home in Catonsville that is a Single Family Home, a Townhome, or a Condominium.  Keep in mind when you are searching, that although I provide neighborhood names here, not every home in Catonsville is in a named subdivision.  If you are searching online for a Catonsville home, the best way to search is by zip code: 21228 and 21229. If you are looking for a Catonsville Single Family Home under $300,000, the neighborhoods where you will have the most success are Meridale Little Farms Westview Park C...

Residents of Catonsville Maryland are aware that this is a town that enjoys it's holidays. Memorial Day is no exception. This morning all of the parking meters on Frederick Road were once again decorated with a crisp American flag in honor of Memorial Day. I am confident that to honor this holiday was MUCH easier than Presidents day in February. Catonsville celebrates Presidents Day in style....and snow.  This time it was only the sticky May heat rather than huge piles of snow. Happy Memorial Day If you or someone you know is thinking of Buying or Selling property in Howard County, Baltimore County, Baltimore City, Harford County, Anne Arundel County, Carroll County, Montgomery County or Prince Georges County. - or if you would like more information please give Ellie McIntire a call at ...
