The home at 409 Patapsco Ave. in Essex is no run-of-the-mill raised rancher. "This is an exceptional opportunity to purchase a waterfront home that is fully renovated inside," said Michael Schiff, the listing agent with Keller Williams Legacy. The house, priced at $325,000, is on one-eighth of an acre. The tree-filled backyard leads down to the waters of the Back River, with views of the river from the rear deck. The open floor plan features a living room and breakfast room that opens to a galley kitchen, which measures 21 feet long - larger than most galley designs.

I arrived home (after being rerouted due to road closures again to find out there was no water. Possibly The Baltimore Sun has an investigative reporter that can look into this situation. One lane has been closed at this location for months, and traffic backs up. That area of the road is lower than the rest and is full of potholes. Why hasn't this main been fixed properly and the hole closed?
