Ehrlichs' Lutherville-Timonium home brings $235,000

Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. and his wife, Kendel, sold their Lutherville/Timonium town house for $235,000 this month to a first-time buyer who had been shopping in the neighborhood.

Steve Papaminas, 36, bought the 1,520-square-foot home by bidding full price for the four-bedroom Colonial. Papaminas said he learned the home belonged to Maryland's first family when he saw photographs during a house tour.

That's about as close as the two sides came in this transaction.

Papaminas, an attorney in Baltimore, said he wanted a loft town house, and this one fit the bill.

He's not registered as a Democrat or a Republican. And he's not about to say how he voted in the gubernatorial race.

This was strictly a business deal, said Papaminas, who is busy painting and making other changes to the home.

Maryland's first Republican governor in 36 years took up residence earlier this year in Government House in Annapolis. State property records show the Ehrlichs bought their former home for $153,000 in 1997.
