Luxury announces itself straightaway in the stately brick exterior, marble flooring in the foyer and the impressive cedar staircase. The bright kitchen features a breakfast nook and overlooks the spacious family room. With at least 15 different rooms (not including the 10 bathrooms), including a
library featuring built-in bookcases, think of all the collections you can have. Pool: check. In-law suite: of course. Multiple-car garage: Do you even have to ask? It’s all set behind gates for safekeeping. —Gloria Khoury, Coldwell Baker Residential Brokerage, 410-952-6206

From the iconic Spanish architecture style to the interior design elements,
this home is a Mediterranean masterpiece. Cathedral ceilings, artfully
designed tile and other Old World touches, like wrought-iron sconces, abound. The sunroom is complete with a ceramic fountain. Outside, the manicured front yard is swoon-worthy. The backyard, with a massive in-ground pool, tile patio and fairytale yard, is the perfect retreat. We can practically smell the paella that we hope is cooking in that state-of-the-art kitchen. —Jean Ottey, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Homesale Realty, 410-440-2963

This house screams “1990s” in all the best ways: Glass-cubed walls, abstract white chandeliers, vaulted ceilings and tiled fireplaces really take us back. Tall white walls with big wide windows keep things bright and airy. The builder no doubt had comfort and relaxation on his agenda—because with bay windows, a geometric-shaped swimming pool, serene views and a soaking tub, it’s easy to get lost and tune out the rest of the neighborhood. Maybe with some Radiohead playing in the background. —Joseph Wathen, RE/MAX Advantage Realty, 410-740-1200

Historic characteristics blend with modern convenience to create this rustic German-style colonial on seven acres. Inside, we must confess the wallpaper might better please Grandma, but with the exposed stone, atrium windows and skylights, that factor is easily forgiven. The updated eat-in kitchen works with the best of old and new: Up-to-the-minute appliances mingle with classic touches like the wood-burning stove. Other amenities include a tennis court, porch and extensive hardscape creating a tranquil outdoor environment. —Creig Northrop, Long & Foster Real Estate, Inc., 410-549-2604
