Distinctive Chevy Chase Dutch Colonial

7208 Ridgewood Avenue, Chevy Chase, MD 20815

Charm abounds in this handsome home located within short distance of downtown Bethesda, Chevy Chase Elementary School, and much more. Walkscore estimates a 17-minute walk to Bethesda Metro station. 

The house has a large living room with windows to the front and backyards, a small home office and a cozy den/music room. An updated kitchen overlooks the garden and the deck. And the dining room has two large windows with two exposures, basking it in sunshine. The second story features a master bedroom with its own full bath and walk-in closet. Two more bedrooms and a hall bath round out the second level.  The unfinished walkout basement is loaded with custom shelving. Outside you’ll find a large deck with extra-wide stairs, a deep backyard, a driveway for 2+ cars and a well-tended garden which explodes with color in the springtime. 

There is something really special about this house.  It just feels good!

Nestled into a large 7,500 s.f. lot, the home is nicely sized as-is or perfect for a future expansion.  Extra high ceilings (9’2″) on the first floor give the rooms some glamour and the little details like the classic wall panels in the living room just add to the romance.

For those of you eagerly awaiting their East Bethesda update, here we go: This week brings one new listing and two price reductions. Expect activity to pick up even more as the weeks progress.  We’ve got a couple of East Bethesda listings coming on the market in the near future.

Rock Creek Forest Homes for Sale

Happy December! Can you believe this weather?! As of December 21, we’ve got one active listing. The market should slow further down over the next 2+ weeks as many sellers take a time-out for the holidays. We can expect it to pick up again soon after the new year, weather allowing. All in all, while the market has been making steady gains, it’s considered slow given the uptick in the stock market and strong job growth. I’m guessing some buyers were holding off given the uncertainty with the tax plan (which is now resolved, but the fallout remains uncertain). Even more buyers, however, are frustrated with the current lack of properties to choose from. So if you are a potential seller considering a holiday launch, this might be a great opportunity!

East Bethesda Homes for Sale 12/1/17

Happy December!  Can you believe this weather?! For those of you eagerly awaiting their East Bethesda update (now housed here–no pun intended), here we go: This week brings one new listing and two price reductions. The market should slow further down over the next 3-4 weeks as many sellers take a time-out for the holidays. We can expect it to pick up again soon after the new year, weather allowing.  All in all, while the market has been making steady gains, it’s considered slow given the uptick in the stock market and strong job growth. I’m guessing some buyers are holding off given the uncertainty with the tax plan (which may or may not be soon resolved). Even more buyers, however, are frustrated with the current lack of properties to choose from. So if you are a potential seller considering a holiday launch, this might be a great opportunity!

East Bethesda MD 20814 Homes for Sale 11/24/17

Well, Thanksgiving madness got in the way of my usual Friday post. Please forgive me!  No new East Bethesda listings. None under contract this week. One price reduction. You didn’t miss any open houses. Happy belated Thanksgiving!

All the homes in this article are currently for sale in East Bethesda. The top of the list features the newest listings while the bottom showcases those that have been on the market for quite some time. I’ll be posting updates every Friday, so be sure to check back to see what’s new, what’s gone, & what might be coming.

Why East Bethesda? I (Marcie) have lived in East Bethesda since 1995 and I’ve sold real estate in East Bethesda since 1999. It’s a wonderful neighborhood within walking distance of Bethesda Metro AND NIH/Walter Reed. While all of this information is available to you on the various search engines (and please keep in mind that these are not all of my own listings), I’ve taken the time to inject my opinion on the condition, pricing, and likelihood of each property selling… or not. I hope you’ll give me a call if you have any questions. I have loved living here over the years, and I want to share it with other enthusiastic people!

4504 Chestnut Street, $725,000

4537 North Chelsea Lane, $1,700,000
A new home will be built on this lot with 6BR/5.1BA. The lot measures 5,390 s.f.. The agent tells me it will likely list between $1.6 and $1.7 mil. Listed with Long & Foster. Days on Market: not officially on the market
