4301 Windy Hill Road is located at the western edge of Randallstown in northwest Baltimore County, near the communities of Granite, Eldersburg and Owings Mills. The area is also sometimes referred to as Harrisonville. The property sits about 3 miles east of the Liberty Reservoir and 5 miles west of the Liberty Road exit of I-695. I-795 is just 4 miles north. The location provides an impressive balance of proximity to major employment centers, retail shopping and dining, all while retaining an exceedingly private, rural environment. Liberty Road, Lyons Mill Road, Owings Mills Boulevard and Marriotsville Road provide good access to an array of area conveniences. The Baltimore Ravens Under Armour Performance Center is approximately two miles north. According to the Baltimore County Public Schools website, nearby schools are Hernwood Elementary, Deer Park Middle and New Town High. McDonogh School is also nearby.
The auction provides an opportunity to purchase a significant amount of acreage in an attractive location. The property has a rich history of its own, once home to a local landmark known as the Watters House. The site previously received (2010) a conditional approval for subdivision to a total of 4 lots, providing some opportunity for additional development at the site. The property is also well suited for use as a single, large estate lot for a homeowner looking for a private residence with great access to surrounding conveniences and recreational opportunities.

Lot size – 18.87 acres, more or less, according to public tax records
The site represents a previously developed lot, formerly home to the “Watters House.” A handful of outbuildings and foundations remain on the site. The lot is positioned at the end of a spur of Windy Hill Road, immediately south of 4300 and 4305 Windy Hill Road.
The north side of the lot comprising roughly 2 acres is mostly clear, fairly level, and was the site of the former residence. The portion of the property features an asphalt/gravel driveway and the remaining structures mentioned above.
The balance of the lot is mostly wooded with mixed topography. A contour map is available below and on the Baltimore County GIS (MyNeighborhood) site. Well and septic are believed to be required. The status of any existing wells or septic system is unknown.
In 2010, the current owners applied for a variance or waiver of regulations to permit subdivision of the lot to a total of 4 lots, which was conditionally approved. No minor subdivision was ever completed. A full due diligence package regarding that process is available after completion of a Waiver and Confidentiality agreement.
