They would build upscale executive houses in Anne Arundel County, making them bigger and more expensive than anything else in the area.There was just one problem.With no similar housing in the immediate area, why would professionals and executives, who could live almost anywhere in the region, travel to Severna Park, drive up a dirt road and pay more than $30,000 for a house, when others in the area cost less than $20,000?

CELEBRATING ITS 40th anniversary this summer, the Severna Park neighborhood of Chartwell might be entering middle age, but it's not losing its charm. The first section of the 598-home community was developed in the 1960s by brothers Charles "Al" Merritt and Guy "Roger" Merritt. The brothers were descendants of a family associated with Maryland since the 18th century, when the first Merritts immigrated to the United States from their home on the Severn River in Tewksbury, England. A member of a Navy construction battalion during World War II, Al Merritt was on assignment in England when he got to know some of the great estates of his ancestral country.
