In between you’ll find elevators, infinity pools and houses 10 times the size of the one you live in. Topping the list is a Hunting Valley estate owned by a local businessman, but, as you’ll see from these photos of a home just completed, change could be on the way. As one person joked of the new home and its owner, “it’s as big as the shopping centers he builds.”
