Hidden Gem in Lakehurst

Many people don’t know about the secluded community located just off of Lake Avenue between Boy’s Latin School and the Elkridge Club. Just over the line into Baltimore County, Lakehurst Drive is a no-through loop, and traffic is kept at a minimum along the tree-lined streets. The neighborhood has a variety of houses of differing styles, but there is no other even remotely like the home nestled down at the end of Overlook Lane.

You might be deceived by the lovely yet unassuming front – don’t be – this home is much larger than it first appears! There are four charming, generously sized bedrooms, two on the main level, each with their own bath, and two with a shared bath on the second level. Click to read more.

Featured Listing: Historic Home with Incredible Story in Rockland Village

Featured Listing:  10136 Falls Rd, Rockland Village

$1,395,000

5 Bedrooms, 3 1/2 Baths

10136FallsRoad-8

Nestled just off of Falls Rd., in the quaint community of Rockland Village, sits one of the oldest homes in Baltimore, Taylor’s Hall.  At first look, the home looks like a traditional telescope house, with an interesting character that takes a minute to detect.  This house, thought to have originally been built around 1697, had been standing for centuries near Padonia Rd in what we all know as Timonium.  In 1727, the house was sold to Thomas Cockey, and remained in the family until the mid-1800’s when it was sold to the Padians, Irish immigrants who were influential in founding Texas, MD- and as you might have guessed- the family for whom Padonia Rd. is named.

Contractor and historic preservationist, Martin Azola of Azola Inc.  has a remarkable track record of working with Baltimore’s most interesting buildings to restore them to their original glory while employing the latest technologies.  In 1986, Marty set about disassembling Taylor’s Hall stone by stone, labeling every piece and every log systematically, salvaging what he could to maintain the stately presence of the home.  Original materials such as architectural details, windows, doors, fireplaces and mantles, stairways, molding and woodwork were painstakingly restored and reused.

AZAR NAFISI: THE REPUBLIC OF IMAGINATION

THE IVY BOOKSHOP

Wednesday, December 3, 2014 – 7:00pm

Critically acclaimed author Azar Nafisi defends her position that Americans do care about books.

 By The Author

Ten years ago, Azar Nafisi electrified readers with her million-copy bestseller, Reading Lolita in Tehran, which told the story of how, against the backdrop of morality squads and executions, she taught The Great Gatsby and other classics to her eager students in Iran. In this exhilarating follow up, Nafisi has written the book her fans have been waiting for: an impassioned, beguiling, and utterly original tribute to the vital importance of fiction in a democratic society. What Reading Lolita in Tehran was for Iran, The Republic of Imagination is for America.  Read More

As the American century draws to an uneasy close, Philip Roth gives us a novel of unqualified greatness that is an elegy for all our century’s promises of prosperity, civic order, and domestic bliss. Roth’s protagonist is Swede Levov, a legendary athlete at his Newark high school, who grows up in the booming postwar years to marry a former Miss New Jersey, inherit his father’s glove factory, and move into a stone house in the idyllic hamlet of Old Rimrock. And then one day in 1968, Swede’s beautiful American luck deserts him.  Click to view more.

Thursday Evening at The Ivy Bookshop- Carine McCandless: The Wild Truth

Carine McCandless: The Wild Truth

Thursday, November 13, 2014 – 7:00pm

Carine McCandless opens up about the family life and upbringing that contributed to her brother’s inspiring adventure and untimely end.

  By The Author

In April 1992, a young man named Chris McCandless walked into the Alaska wilderness, where he survived for more than 100 days before perishing in an abandoned bus. For over twenty years his story has captivated millions, and yet only one person knew the truth behind his remarkable journey– until now.

Through a tumultuous childhood, the McCandless siblings clung to each other amidst a chaotic home life, forming a lifelong bond and an unbreakable trust. So when Chris forged an anonymous existence on the road, Carine understood what drove Chris away from all he had known. Having to face her own truth, Carine embarked on a unique journey finding strength in the love and connection she shared with her now absent brother.

Carine McCandless is an entrepreneur, activist and mother. She has been successfully self-employed since she started her first company at the age of nineteen. As a public speaker her presentations are featured in education and corporate venues across the United States. Carine’s memoir, The Wild Truth, will be released on October 21st.

Carine is the sister of literary icon Chris Mcandless, a.k.a. Alexander Supertramp, whose life story captured the hearts of millions of people around the world. She played a vital role in the success of Into the Wild, the internationally bestselling book written by Jon Krakauer. Krakauer endorses Carine as “a gifted communicator, she is engaging, inspiring, and bracingly outspoken.” Into the Wild sold millions of copies in thirty-one languages and is required reading at universities all over the globe including the U.S., U.K., Italy, Germany, Canada and France.
