Carol Coleman likes to explore new areas. Out for a spring afternoon drive nearly 25 years ago, she stumbled into what many call one of Baltimore County's best-kept secrets.This particular pre-Easter drive brought her to Purnell Drive. There, alongside the scenic Gwynns Falls stream, she saw a group of rowhouses. In the front yard of one, a woman sat in the sun reading a book. The tree in the yard was decorated with Easter eggs."I was so taken by the serenity of this place that I never forgot it," Mrs. Coleman, 53, recalled recently.
