The longtime home of James and Patricia Rouse on the banks of Wilde Lake in Columbia, where the world-known affordable housing advocates danced together to tunes from a stereo next to their living room fireplace, is up for sale. Click here to see the listing and pictures!

It is the home’s first time on the market since the newlyweds purchased it for $95,000 more than 38 years ago and now listed for $795,000.

James Rouse was the urban development visionary who produced a diverse array of projects, including Harborplace, Boston’s Faneuil Hall and the villages of Columbia, including the Village of Wilde Lake. He bought this home about 11 years after announcing his plan to “build a comprehensively planned city” and the purchase of 14,000 acres in Howard County, according to the archives.
