4322 Kentbury Drive
Bethesda, MD 20814

Offered at $990,000

Welcome to this delightful & expanded colonial on one of the prettiest tree-lined streets in East Bethesda. WalkScore gives it a 74 – “very walkable” – meaning most errands can be accomplished on foot.  The neighborhood offers a variety of conveniences including easy access to Metro, downtown Bethesda, the Capital Crescent Trail, Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School, Lynbrook Park and Round House Theatre.

The home itself features a nicely flowing first floor with a wood burning fireplace in the living room, a closed office/den, a powder room and a traditional dining room with chair rail. Best of all, there’s a fantastic open kitchen with cherry cabinetry and a sun-drenched eating area. The adjacent family room leads to the back yard and an inviting patio made of Pennsylvania blue stone. A pantry/mud room provides ample shelving for extras and access for carrying in your shopping bags. On the second floor you’ll find four bedrooms and two full baths, including a master bedroom suite with its own wide balcony – the perfect place for your morning cup of coffee! Outside, you’ll be greeted by a lush, green space, complete with a tree house and storage shed.

First OpenHouse

Sunday, May 18
1:00 – 4:00 pm

East Bethesda MD 20814 Homes for Sale 5/16/14

said on May 16th, 2014 filed under: Bethesda

flowersUpdate for 5/16/14. One new listing (it’s mine!). Nothing under contract.  One listing has withdrawn from the market, and another is temporarily off the market.  

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 18 years. I’ve sold real estate in East Bethesda for over 15 years. 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!

East Bethesda Yard Sale

said on May 7th, 2014 filed under: Just For Fun

It’s that time of year again!  The East Bethesda Citizens Association is sponsoring their annual Community Yard Sale this Saturday, May 10, 2014 from 9:00am to Noon.  Don’t miss it. Over the years I’ve mourned for that perfect blue couch that I spied at the sale but didn’t buy. Ergh.  Great deals on kids toys, clothing, knick-knacks, and other treasures.  Plus, it’s a great way to catch up with neighbors and friends. yard sale

BCC High School Expansion Delay

said on April 30th, 2014 filed under: Bethesda, Chevy Chase

BCC High SchoolPushing the B-CC addition back one year would mean that construction would commence in January 2017 with a planned building opening date in fall 2018 (fields would open not before spring 2019). It would also mean that the freshman class entering the new building would be the first class comprised of students from two middle schools (MS #2 and Westland).

Bethesda Strut Your Mutt- May 17

said on April 28th, 2014 filed under: Bethesda, Chevy Chase, Just For Fun

Crazy Dog

STRUT YOUR MUTT DOG PARADE AND FESTIVAL

The 9th annual Strut Your Mutt Dog Parade and Festival will take place on
Saturday, May 17, 2014 from 10am to 3pm on Norfolk Ave. between Woodmont Ave. and Cordell Ave. in Bethesda, MD.

There will be the always-popular dog parade at 10:00am, as well as owner/dog
contests, along with over 30 dog-related exhibitors and a kiddie park
with moonbounces and games to keep the kids entertained. This year the Bethesda Chevy Chase Rotary Club is
partnering with DC Actors For Animals, and there will be performances in the afternoon and almost a dozen rescue groups will be present to offer education and information on training your dog and adopting rescue dogs.

The event, being put on by the Bethesda Chevy Chase Rotary Club, is a
fundraiser for its Foundation, which provides grants to service
organizations that provide assistance to improve literacy and health both locally and internationally. This year the Montgomery
County Humane Society is assisting the BCC Rotary Club and will receive a portion of the proceeds as well.

If you’re lucky, you may catch a glimpse of my pup, Willie.

The Evers & Co. March 2014 Real Estate Report

said on April 11th, 2014 filed under: State of the Market

cherry blossomsThe bad weather has taken a toll on the real estate market in the close-in Metro area, with March sales being a minus 8.8% from the previous March, the first time in well over a year that we’ve seen a reduction in sales volume from the same month the previous year. In addition, the average price showed less than 1% increase over March 2013. At the same time, almost half of the sales this month in all price ranges at our firm were competitive, so these numbers indicate strong purchase demand, but an unprecedented lack of product to sell the multitude of buyers.

Our advice to sellers is to make the move that they have been deferring, since prices are near what they were at the peak of the market in 2005. Buyers, Read the rest of this entry »
