REAL ESTATE AUCTION ON SITE FRIDAY, OCTOBER 28, 2022 AT 11:00 am! List price is opening bid only. A $25,000 deposit, payable by cashier's check, will be required to bid. 17700 & 17705 Foreston Road comprise a roughly 9 acre property in the Upperco area of Northern Baltimore County. The facility has been known most recently as "The Mount," and previously as the "Forest Baptist Church." Nestled among the rolling cornfields, pastures and expansive homesteads for which the area is well-known, the church and school building sit prominently on a hill with scenic views throughout the valley below. Foreston Road runs north from Mount Carmel Road, near Falls Road, up to Pretty Boy Reservoir. The Harrisburg Expressway (I-83) is 6 miles east, and Hampstead is approximately the same distance west. Friendly Farms, a destination restaurant and farm, is one-half mile south. Originally constituted as the Forest Baptist Church in 1843, the church has been a community asset for nearly 180 years. The current sanctuary was built in 1918, and the adjoining school building and offices in 1976. The facility is an attractive location to continue the legacy promulgated by generations of area congregants and residents, or to reposition the property for alternative uses moving forward. The auction provides an excellent opportunity to purchase nearly 9 acres with two prominent buildings among the most attractive scenery in the Mid-Atlantic region.
