In Baltimore, rooftop decks provide a great outdoor space for entertaining, relaxing and taking in beautiful city and water views.

As we start to welcome warmer weather, I thought it would be fun to feature real estate listings with this beloved feature. The three homes range in price from $415,000 to $875,000.
