Active Listings:

Rock Creek Forest colonial for sale Chevy Chase MD 2719 Colston Dr — $734,000. 3 bedrooms, 2 baths. One of the original RCF colonials from 1941. Last sold 3 years ago. Great example for the amazing difference new appliances as well as fresh paint, tile and carpet can make. Much of the price increase, however, might be attributed to the improved market. Listed by Long & Foster. DOM: 0
2714 Abilene Dr — $830,000. 1980s colonial with 5 bedrooms, 3 full and 1 half bath. All in all a good house with a few quirky features but nice space for the money. A block from Rock Creek Park. Large walk-out basement. Listed by Peek Properties. Days on market: 51
2511 Spencer Rd — $650,000.
1956 rambler with 3 br, 2 baths. This one is a bit of a mystery as there are no pictures online and showing is restricted. Let’s us conclude it might not be in ideal shape and likely quite overpriced. Listed with Re/Max. Days on market: 142 (without price reduction)

Under Contract:
