"Sherlock Holmes Estates" is well established as one of southern Carroll County's premier custom home developments.  Situated about 1.75 miles north of Liberty Road (MD-26), in Eldersburg, Sherlock Holmes Estates is within walking distance of scenic Liberty Reservoir.

Created in the 1980's, Sherlock Holmes Estates comprises 124 total lots.  Homes in the development are well maintained and have most recently sold for $555,000 to $695,000.   Several are valued considerably higher.  Home sizes and styles are protected by covenant, shielding the extensive investments neighborhood homeowners have placed in their properties.  The rolling topography and nearby woodlands provide a serene setting in a very convenient location.
