In Harford County, Bel Air gets a lot of buzz, but the town of Fallston has plenty to offer. Its Falls Crest neighborhood — full of large single family homes built around the turn of the millennium — is just one of its attractive spots.

When Julie Lefkowitz and her family moved to Falls Crest in 2010, they were initially attracted to the community’s convenient location, with easy access to Interstate 95 and proximity to great schools, sports fields and the Fallston Branch Library.

Looking closer, Lefkowitz realized the neighborhood’s allure goes deeper.

“The houses are not cookie-cutter. There are about 37 houses in the neighborhood we live in and they’re by multiple different builders,” she said. “The lots are large, so we see a lot of wildlife — deer, fox, birds, rabbits. It’s very much a parklike setting. There’s great hiking, mountain biking and fishing. It’s a wonderful place.”
