Update for 8/26/2011. One (sorta) new listing. Two under contract. And one price drop.
All the homes in this article are currently for sale within 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 updating this post every Friday, so be sure to check back to see what’s new, what’s gone, & what might be coming (and check out the date up top… if it’s not current, neither is this information!). I’ve lived in East Bethesda for over 15 years. I’ve sold real estate in East Bethesda for over 11 years. It’s a wonderful neighborhood within walking distance of two metro stops AND downtown Bethesda. While all of this information is available to you on the various search engines, 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!
4709 Chestnut Street, $?
Saw a sign pop up on Friday, but it has yet to hit the MLS. Built within the last 10 years. About 3-4 houses off of Wisconsin Avenue. Days on Market: 0[space]
4301 Rosedale Avenue, $1,895,000
New property to be built by Miller Development on a 10,605 s.f lot. Touts upscale finishes, designer kitchen, energy efficient systems, hand cut stonework, and wide plank floors. 5BR/4.5BA. Days on Market: 65[space]
4514 Chestnut Street, $550,000
Wonderful cottage with 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths. Large, dry basement with a 1960s wet bar awaits your finishing touches (3rd bedroom… rec room, you choose!). Furnace and Central Air Conditioning replaced in August 2011! Newer appliances in the kitchen. Pretty, level yard with mature plantings. More Photos. Days on Market: 73[space]
4600 Rosedale Avenue, $1,049,000
I’m always a little bit suspicious of long skinny houses on small lots (4,800 s.f.), but this one is pretty nice. Very open 1st floor with hardwood floors, nice kitchen, half bath and access to the yard. Finished basement. A total of 4 bedrooms and 3 full baths on the two upper floors. Loads of sunshine. Built in 2011. Days on market: 104[space]
4701 Rosedale Avenue, $720,000
Brick colonial with 3 BR/2.5FB. There’s a lot of fresh paint. And some refinished hardwood floors. 2-story carriage house offers up even more possibilities (and it has a 1/2 bath, albeit, a little rustic). There’s a bonus room via the master bedroom on the third floor. One block to Wisconsin Avenue and a quick jog to NIH Metro. One of the bedrooms is in the basement… Recent $39K price drop. Days on Market: 105[space]
8513 Halston Way, $979,900
Yikes! Another townhouse! 4-levels of fun. Marble-tiled bath, jacuzzi tub, 11-foot ceilings and a custom kitchen with granite counters. Private deck. Days on Market: 133[space]
4502 Rosedale Avenue, $1,349,000.
This one listed and sold last spring. So, if it was the “one that got away” you’ve got another chance (for more money, of course). Pretty house, great kitchen, nice finishes, and despite the teeny lot, there is a satisfactory little yard and patio. Constructed in 2007, it still offers up that new house feel. 2,880 square feet of living space AND a 2-car garage. Days on Market: 148[space]
7917 Kentbury Drive, $998,000
4BR/4FB and a lap pool (aka endless pool). Chic, contemporary renovation with an open floor plan and an abundance of sunshine. Love the stair railings and the whimsical shelves dividing the LR/DR. This one sits on the Capital Crescent Trail… and while the jury is still out on the Purple Line, this one would tempt me to take that chance. Really lovely house. Recent $40K price reduction. Days on Market: 173[space]
8507 Halston Way, $989,000
This townhouse features 4 bedrooms, 3 full baths and 2 half baths. 4-levels of living, including a 2-car garage. Granite in the kitchen, and private deck with a fig tree! Days on Market: 218[space]
4717 N. Chelsea Lane, $1,488,000
First PASSIVE house in the metro area. A passive house is so energy efficient that it saves an average 90% of HVAC energy of a standard home. Cool. 5 bedrooms, 4 full baths & 1 half bath. There are a lot of really neat energy/resource saving practices taking place in this house… shutters on the south side, reclaimed hardwood flooring, etc. Recent $50K price reduction. Days on Market: 222[space]
4306 Chestnut Street, $1,749,000
This one hasn’t been built yet. There are additional home designs available that can work the price down to $1,600,000. Built by Georgetown Development. Beautiful block. Shady, large trees. Fabulous location. No photo available. Days on Market: 448[space]
4608 W. Virginia Avenue, $939,000
This house is really different. It consists of a lovely bungalow, originally built in 1923, along with a sizable addition, which serves as a studio/office. The bungalow is inviting, though dated. The kitchen is older, but the house and garden ooze charm. The addition in the back, which is connected to the bungalow portion of the house by a corridor just off the kitchen, is large and cavernous, and also quite nice. It features a separate entrance off of the driveway, a full bath, a large studio, and a second floor office- quite large. It’s not obvious how to incorporate this space into the bungalow… they really do function as separate quarters. Perfect for someone in need of a home office. Very buyer specific. Days on Market: 472[space]
4514 Maple Avenue, @ $1,525,000
This is a property not yet available on the MLS, and in the beginning stages of building. Delivery is expected in Spring 2011. It will have 6 bedrooms and 5.5 baths, and sits on a lot that measures 6,000 square feet. For more information and floor plans, give me a call. Days on Market: unavailable[space]
4527 Maple Avenue, TBD
Same situation as the house above and likely to have a similar price. 6 bedrooms/5.5 baths. Sits on a 6,269 s.f. lot. 4 levels. Estimated delivery: Fall 2011. Days on Market: unavailable[space]
