Standing in the driveway of Arleen Dvorine's Lutherville property, it is clear she has successfully realized her dream of converting an old carriage house into an office and home. The 240-year-old, one-story structure served as the stable for the long-ago gentleman farmer and owner of White Manor, a mansion still standing and still occupied further down the winding road. A gently sloping roof flows into the exterior's cedar shake siding. Multi-paned windows — colonial in style and with cream trim — are symmetrically placed on either side of a portico, also in a cream color.

The garage apartment where a Baltimore man was slain was burned down the next night, prompting police to investigate whether the killer is covering his tracks.

Back in 1967, Dick Watts, a widower with two young sons, was renting the carriage house on the large estate of Philip Poe, a descendant cousin of Edgar Allan Poe. He was comfortable living down the hill from the manor house, which backs up to Roland Run in Ruxton. "He used to walk along the property, and one day he said to me, 'This is where you want to raise your boys,'" remembers Dick Watts, 82, who at the time was a coach and director of the athletic department at UMBC. "He said it would be $30,000 to buy it and he took $150 down and financed the rest at 5 percent!"

From the outside, Belmont Manor and Historic Park in Elkridge hasn't changed much. The 68-acre estate is still home to the Georgian-style, stucco-on-brick manor house, built by Caleb Dorsey in 1738. It still has intricate gardens and rolling hills as far as the eye can see. But the house and its surrounding property are subtly evolving. For the first time in its almost 300-year history, Belmont is hosting public environmental and preservation programs. The Woodstock-based Howard County Conservancy began offering programs at the new Belmont Nature Center in May and will continue to do so year-round, says Meg Schumacher Boyd, the conservancy's executive director.

Sitting still is not easy at a performance of the Tom Principato and Rusty Bogart's Swing Guitar Party band. So infectious are the rhythms that a quick survey at a recent performance at the 2nd Saturday Cafe in Columbia revealed feet tapping, heads bobbing and veggies plunging in and out of the dip in time with the beat. The intimate nightspot was tucked cozily into the historic Oliver's Carriage House, home to the Kittamaqundi Community Church near Town Center. On the second Saturday each month, the 19th-century former stable transforms into a hopping nightclub, boasting a bar, hors d'oeuvre buffet and live entertainment.

The brick home features white trim, multipaned windows and a symmetric front elevation with a recessed center bay, along with well-proportioned wings that are adorned with pediments.

If it is hard to imagine buying a home, moving in, and then restoring its 67 windows to their original 1923 condition, you can only marvel at the determination of Ray and Lynn Plack to revive Hiddenbrook, their Ruxton mansion on 6 acres just north of Baltimore. "The house was untouched and belonged to one family for 89 years," said Lynn Plack, a 55-year-old real estate agent with Chase Fitzgerald & Co. Inc. "There wasn't one functioning bathroom. We had to completely gut three out of four of them.

An old Victorian home, built of granite and dating to 1896, sits on the corner of two wide, tree-lined streets in Havre de Grace, welcoming visitors from near and far. Carol Nemeth, has been running her "Victorian Lady" as a full-time bed-and-breakfast since 1994, seven years after she and her then-husband, Jim, purchased it in 1987. The intention was never to turn it into a B&B, but rather to take a neglected property and bring it back to its original condition. The Nemeths had restored one home in town, but they wanted to try their hands at a larger place.

Do you begin inside, with the airy rooms, chef's kitchen and four fireplaces? Or outdoors, with the sculpted gardens, rolling green hills and tranquil riding trails on 78 acres? If you can't make up your mind about 16835 Gerting Road in Monkton, choose something in between: the screened-in sleeping porch and the poolside cabana. Designed by local architect Faith Nevins Hawks and built in 2001, the 1812 replica farmhouse "is timeless," said Realtor Heidi Krauss, who represented the seller.

Robert Bolt's "A Man for All Seasons" is especially apt in a political season, which is one reason that Kittamaqundi Theater scheduled the historical play for November. The show opened at Kittamaqundi Community Church in Columbia last weekend; two more performances are scheduled at 8 p.m. tomorrow and Saturday. The high-stakes debating in "A Man for All Seasons" obviously strikes a chord at election time. But the drama's dispute between King Henry VIII and Sir Thomas More, Lord Chancellor of England, isn't completely in synch with America's current power struggle: In the play, the political loser is beheaded.
