Long & Foster Real Estate, the largest independent residential real estate company in the United States and the exclusive affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate in Maryland, has listed seven lots and a custom-built home in Baker Park Estates of Frederick, Md. Located in the popular Baker Park neighborhood, Baker Park Estates is a small development that will feature nine luxury homes—all of which will be designed to match the historical feel of nearby properties. The Baker Park Estates properties are exclusively listed by Douglas Gardiner, managing partner with The Maryland Group of Long & Foster. The lots are on the market starting at $475,000 each, and the custom home is listed for $1.35 million.

“Baker Park Estates, from a design perspective, takes into consideration the historic aesthetics of the surrounding neighborhood while also ensuring the modern amenities for today’s living, and that perfect blend of old and new is sure to attract many luxury home buyers in the Frederick area,” said Gardiner. “Additionally, the neighborhood is ideally situated near public transportation, retail shops, restaurants and schools, as well as the popular Baker Park, making it a lifetime location for families and couples alike.”

Each of the seven lots in Baker Park Estates is roughly ΒΌ of an acre, and all homes in the neighborhood will feature similar design elements, yet will be customized to their owners’ preferences. The community has established design and architectural guidelines to ensure it blends into Frederick’s downtown area and has a complementary feel throughout. Clients who purchase a lot within Baker Park Estates will work with the custom builder and architect of their choosing to create the home of their dreams, following the community guidelines.

Mitchell & Best, a well-known homebuilder in Maryland and Northern Virginia, is currently building the custom home in the Baker Park Estates that Gardiner has listed, and this house will serve as an example of the neighborhood’s future development. Every detail was strategically planned to emphasize the historic details expected in the area. The woodwork, including banisters and wainscoting, are reminiscent of the period of the homes in the neighborhood, yet the needs of today’s homebuyers are met with layout choices such as the great room that’s open to the kitchen and breakfast area. The master suite also has his-and-hers walk-in closets, as well as separate vanities in the master bath. You can view a video of the Mitchell & Best home here.

There, homeowners will enjoy neighborhood tennis courts, a swimming pool and soccer and baseball fields. Baker Park also features a bandshell with regular events and Culler Lake, a popular destination for the community.
