Stephen Luckett (ExecuHome Realty-LuckNet Real Estate Group)

Everyone knows I write a lot of blogs about Dundalk and especially Gray Manor. Why?, because I live here and am proud of where I live!

I have just recently found out that last year a small group of people joined together in Gray Manor to establish a Community and Business Group: Gray Manor Community & Business Group

This group meets monthly to discuss topics of interest and concern for the residents and businesses of the Gray Manor Community. The meetings are held the second Tuesday of each month at: First Lutheran Church of Gray Manor 212 Oakwood Rd.. Start time is 6:30pm. The next scheduled meeting is Tuesday May 13-Just 4 days before the Community Yard Sale.

If you would like to see other events or a schedule of meetings and topics, check the Calendar on the website.

The current President is Linda Gossman and she may be contacted at: president@graymanor.org

As I wrote in my last Gray Manor blog-There is a strong sense of community in this area. The formation of the GMCG just proves my point even further. Needless to say, I will be more involved with the evolution of this group for the betterment of this great community.

If you would like more information on the Gray Manor Community Group in Dundalk, do not hesitate to email Linda to get your questions answered.

Todays Life in Gray Manor, Dundalk, Maryland 21222
Stephen Luckett (ExecuHome Realty-LuckNet Real Estate Group)

What is it like to be a part of such a great community like Gray Manor in Dundalk, Maryland? I have been asked this question many times over the course of my Real Estate career. So many times in fact that I decided to write this short description for potential new home buyers thinking about moving in to this community!

Gray manor encompasses over 600 homes bordered by Northpoint Rd, Trappe Rd, Woodwell W, and German Hill rd in Eastern Baltimore County. It offers a wide variety of housing and well as i and necessities within close proximity. The closeness of schools, churches, stores and services, as well as the affordability of homesmakes this one of the most popular neighborhoods in Dundalk. Battle Acre Dundalk

If you are a history buff, there are many stories that surround this community-of Battle Acre Dundalkcourse the most popular being that of the Battle of North Point in the War of 1812, which actually occurred in September of 1814. A monument erected on "Battle Acre" is dedicated to those that fought to Defend Baltimore and had the British retreat in just 1 day! The next night was the Battle at Ft McHenry which was the point in the war where the British were driven from Baltimore.  

Another marker erected is on a field near the corner of Northpoint and German Hill.  This markeGray Manor Dundalkr was erected to mark the "Battle Ground Methodist Episcopal Church" which was used by both armies as a hospital during and after the famous battle in 1814.

A large parcel of land, now owned by the Historical Society will be preserved commemorating the great battle here led by General John Stricker, who is the Namesake for the Middle School that services the Gray Manor Community. You can get much more information on the Battle of North Point from the BC Public Library or Eagle Heritage.

Gray Manor was surveyed and plotted in the early and mid 1940's, although there are several homes that date into the 1920's. I had the opportunity to meet the son, now almost 70, of the man that worked to lay out the original plat of the Gray Manor Community. He lived, with his family in a farm house located approximately where the Charlesmont Pool is currently. He remembered walking the area with his father and helping set the grids of where homes were to be built. He recounted stories of finding many artifacts at the time, like arrow heads and musket balls.1926 Gray Manor Dundalk

There is a wide variety of housing available in the Gray Manor Community. This corner home on Oakwood rd is an example of the earlier homes, built in 1926. You can find these homes Cape Cod Gray Manor Dundalkscattered throughout the community, although the majority of homes were built just after WW II. The post War homes comprise mostly bungalows and Cape Cods with 2 or 3 bedrooms and 1 bath. These homes became occupied quickly as they were built to accommodate the growing steel industry in the Dundalk area.

Many homes purchased new in this area are actually still in the families of the ancestors. I have talked with many of my neighbors to find that their homes were either passed down through the generations or sold within the family after the owners deceased. This adds much to the heritage and history of the Gray Manor Community, as well as what makes the Community so popular.

When homes are for sale outside a family, normally they will sell quickly. I have sold many homes in this community and find that homes generally receive much attention while being marketed. It was funny that last year I sold 2 homes to children and grand-children of parents that lived on the same block, so if the house is not being passed down family will at least move close when available. This adds so much to the sense of community in Gray Manor.

Do you like to feel like you have some space? Most of the yards in Gray Manor are large as compared to many communities. 5000-7500SF is normal for most properties. This allows space for a garage, a pool, a work shed or just about anything that you might want in your yard. Although the majority of yards are fenced, this is not to keep neighbors away, but usually to keep the family pet in. Being a very Family oriented community, cats and dogs are very popular.Gray Manor Park Dundalk

It's nice that even though you feel away from the city, amenities you want are still close at hand. Gray Manor Park is just off Woodwell west and offers plenty of room for family outings and a wide variety of activities through the Baltimore Park & Recreation. The new Battle Field park will be added as well as work is done to preserve the area at Northpoint and Trappe Roads.

Do you need to be within a short distance of shopping? Walmart, Drug City, Mars Grocery and many other businesses are located nearby for your shopping convenience. Our Dundalk Walmart is one of the highest volume Walmarts in the Country. Of course, I couldn't get through a blog like this without mentioning one of the hottest flea markets in Eastern Baltimore County. Plaza Flea Market is next door to Walmart and is a great place to spend some time on the weekends.

I would say this a thumbnail sketch of what you can expect being a part of the Gray Manor Community in Dundalk. We have enjoyed living in this community and I recommend it to anyone looking for their first or next home. I would be happy to assist you in finding that perfect place call HOME.

Gray Manor, Dundalk, Maryland 21222-Great Single Family Homes
Stephen Luckett (ExecuHome Realty-LuckNet Real Estate Group)

Many first time home buyers in the Baltimore, Maryland area think that they must start in a row home or townhouse because the single family home is just out of reach. I am here to say that is just NOT TRUE! There are some great neighborhoods in Dundalk, 21222 that are filled with single family homes that are affordable to the first time home buyer.

Gray Manor is one of those neighborhoods-very diverse in style and size of home as well as price. I have helped several first time buyers find wonderful single family homes in this neighborhood.

Just a few examples-John and his wife were thrilled when we found a single family 3bd/1.5ba fixer for $163,000! They were able to do a special construction loan to add a second floor as well as do all of the fix up work. Now they have loads of equity in their first home, as well as a very nice single family home.

Chris and his wife still thank me for getting them into their first home in Gray Manor. A cute little 2Bd/1 Ba cape cod that had been updated and with a nice size yard for their small child. They have been in about 1 year and are just starting to rehab the entire house to add more bedrooms and baths for new "family additions!"

There are many opportunities like these in the Gray Manor Community. If you are thinking that your first home or even a move up to a single family is just out of reach-Give me a call and I will show you just how possible it can be!
