Lutherville-Timonium Neighborhood Spotlight: Seminary Ridge

seminary ridge

Seminary Ridge is a small community in Lutherville comprised of 167 residences.  Every homeowner of a residence in Seminary Ridge becomes a legal member of the Association.  Seminary Ridge features five Committees that serve the community and plan various projects and activities throughout the year.  These committees include: Activities, Covenants, Hospitality, Open Space, and Communications. This tight-knit community puts strong emphasis on getting to know your neighbors and participation in neighborhood events such as group game night for women, outdoor “boot camp” gym classes and plenty of events throughout the year for children.  There are over 20 acres of common property in the community owned and maintained by the Association.  This area is referred to by community residents as the Open Space and stretches behind many of the homes in two long corridors, plus a small triangle on the south-western side of the community.  There is a walking path that runs along the back of the homes in Seminary Ridge and includes benches for walker and runners alike to take a break and enjoy the quiet tranquility of this neighborhood.  For families looking to move to Timonium-Lutherville, Seminary Ridge is an excellent choice.  The community is located in a blue ribbon public school zone.
