If a good game of golf is both physical and spiritual for you and you want to live close to a golf-course just like people who love the beach buy beach-homes, Ellicott City in Maryland may be a place to consider calling home. The city is in Howard County and was around a milling factory-town founded by highly successful and industrious Quaker brothers Joseph, Andrew and John Ellicott. The city is a fascinating mosaic of settler history and modern cosmopolitan outlook due to its proximity to Baltimore. This charming city of 65,000 people is on the west bank of the Patapsco River. The Ellicott City Historic District is the city’s celebrated downtown with its unique set of attractions such as historic railroads including the Ellicott City Station, the oldest surviving train station in the US built way back in 1830. In addition to building tours, a major draw is the Patapsco Valley State Park with its nationally recognized recreational options including mountain bike trails, hiker only trails, fishing and camping. The city’s upscale Walnut Creek community of luxurious 1-acre home-sites is a wonderful place to relax after that busy day in Baltimore, northern Virginia. These homes have 5 bedrooms, gourmet kitchens and hand-finished hardwood floors. The Triadelphia Ridge Elementary School and Folly Quarter Middle School are just minutes away. The city’s large Korean population and nearby- Baltimore’s African American influence also enriches its cuisine with some superb restaurants nearby. But the star attraction for you at least will be our expertly manicured golf course. You will enjoy spending weekends and days off teeing, putting and swinging in the presence of an elite community of hardworking and successful people, just like you. So do not let go of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to ensconce to buy yourself a prime piece of real estate near the sporting venue you love.
