Before 1998, John and Bobbin Kreider lived for 16 years in Howard County in a saltbox-style home known to their neighbors in Dayton as the "Red House. " Bobbin Kreider was happy with their 17 acres, where she was able to keep three horses. That was before she saw an advertisement in an equerry newsletter on the attributes of a 27-acre horse farm with barn, stalls, outbuildings and a two-story farmhouse, circa 1880. And it was only nine miles from the "Red House. " After looking at the property in Sykesville, she was thrilled, but her husband was less so. "I loved the property but hated the house," said John Kreider, 58, recalling the tiny, chopped-up rooms.

On Maryland's Eastern Shore, 6201 Swan Creek Road in Rock Hall reaches new heights in property ownership. A classic 19th-century farmhouse and a charming waterfront cottage sit on a private peninsula consisting of 177-plus acres of farmland. With gorgeous views of the Chesapeake Bay, the main farmhouse has been meticulously restored by the owner from the foundation up - including a major addition completed in 1998 that nearly doubles the living space. This has allowed for a modern kitchen, family room, guest room and an office.

Rick and Mickey Price live on a 340-acre farm in northern Baltimore County. Their rambling, two-story farmhouse sits high and exposed on the land's crest, with acres upon acres rolling softly below and the nearest neighbor over a quarter-mile away. While their house has an old-homestead, Colonial feel, it was custom-built just 11 years ago. The couple's story is inextricably intertwined with the house, which along with their marriage, is a study in new beginnings. "Dick, his first wife and my late husband and I knew each other for over 40 years," said Mickey Price, 79, explaining that they were all involved in the Maryland South Delaware district of the Optimists.

Last year my wife, Leslie, and I, after 20 years of marriage and five houses -- Cape Cod bungalow, brick Colonial, one-level ranch, a spec contemporary and a 6,000-square-foot McMansion -- downsized into a 2,200-square-foot farmhouse within walking distance of Washington, D.C.'s East Falls Church Metro station. The house was built in 1892. The year Grover Cleveland was elected president for the second time, Sherlock Holmes began solving mysteries, Thomas Edison patented the telegraph, and the rules of basketball were established, walrus-mustachioed George Crossman was finishing up construction on a cross-gabled two-story house for his new bride, Nellie, on 65 acres in what was then the farming region of Arlington, Va., not far from the Potomac River and the nation's capital.

The Howard County school board decided last night to build two new schools in North Laurel without destroying a 150-year-old farmhouse that residents had fought to save.But the compromise does not satisfy all the concerns of the residents, who fear that the revised plan still may cause traffic problems and diminish the area's rural character."We're still worried about access to ball fields scheduled to be built on the site . . . and we're afraid that building a two-story middle school so close to the house will harm the views from the house and the scenic road," said Gregory Fries, who has led the community's fight against the plan.

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.

An old farmhouse in Huntingtown that preservationists hoped to keep from bulldozers was knocked down this month after attempts to save it failed. No one was able to salvage the house, which was blocking a housing development going up in this part of Calvert County, despite some interest, said Kirsti Uunila, historic preservation specialist for the county's Department of Planning and Zoning. The house was free to whoever was willing to move it from the site. An Anne Arundel County businessman, E. Steuart Chaney, had hoped to save at least one of the outbuildings, but a communications breakdown kept him from getting to the property in time, he said.

Deep in the Hereford Zone of northern Baltimore County, narrow country roads slice through fields of waist-high corn, surprisingly tall for early summer. A lane running adjacent to a Christmas tree farm passes a few old barns; farther down the lane, there is a large, two-story wagon house in need of repair, another red barn, a chicken shed and a stable in the distance. Just beyond the shed and a vegetable garden sits the long and narrow farmhouse of Betsy and Charley Mitchell on 8 acres of what was formerly a nearly 500-acre tenant farm.

It is not often that a visitor receives a Dickensian welcome at the front gate of a historic Monkton home decorated for the holidays. Dressed to the nines in fresh greenery, this circa 1840, white-washed brick structure wears red bows and pine cones on green wreaths like haute couture. Two women arrange garlands to sweep the length and breadth of the white picket fence surrounding a small front garden. Large brass lanterns on either side of the front entrance light the steps up to the front door.

Bob Sleeper is a man who cannot be fenced in. While many of his friends are city dwellers, he craves the great outdoors. For this reason, he and his wife, Marian, left a large home in suburban Marriottsville in favor of an old — and much smaller — farmhouse in Westminster. Sleeper's first love has always been the land — 5 acres in this instance, with a two-story, 2,700-square-foot bank barn on a knoll. "We downsized the house but upsized the property," said Sleeper, a 60-year-old employee of Constellation Energy.

When Nancy Dorman and Stanley Mazaroff first saw the old stone farmhouse in northern Baltimore County, it had holes in the walls and raccoons in the basement. But it stood in the middle of 85 acres of farmland, with cows grazing in the distance and sweeping views of rolling countryside all around. That's what convinced them to buy it as a second home. "We always wanted a place in Maryland that reminded us of our trips to France and Italy," Mazaroff said. "This was a little bit of Italy in Baltimore County.
