Update for 5/20/16. Two new listings. One under contract. Two price drops.
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 20 years. I’ve sold real estate in East Bethesda for over 16 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!

4616 Fairfield Drive, $1,230,000
What a transformation! This one has been cleaned up, features newly refinished floors, fresh paint, and new carpet. Such a difference from last year when it debuted. 6BR/4.5BAs. Baths and kitchen still need a fair amount of attention. Listed with Washington Fine Properties. Days on Market: 0
4604 Jones Bridge Road, $679,000
Brick colonial with 3BR and 2FB. The floors feature slightly wider planks- a bit unusual for a home of this era. Family room. The kitchen, while somewhat dated, is crisp and clean. Mature garden with patio and deck. You can’t get much closer to Walter Reed. Listed with Coldwell Banker. Days on Market: 5
4520 Rosedale Avenue, $800,000
This one was on the market last Fall. 3BR/2.5BA. It’s got all of the parts, but they don’t come together very well (IMHO). The spiral staircase to the “MBR” with only a half bath is the killer for me. Otherwise, it has some attractive elements. Someone will love it. Listed with Keller Williams. Days on Market: 14

4702 West Virginia Ave, $1,769,000

RECENT SETTLED SALES IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD:
If you like East Bethesda, you might enjoy reading some of my other posts:
A lot of my real estate clients want to live near the NIH Metro, either because they work there (or at the new Walter Reed), or because of the easy commute into the District. Traffic these days is a bear. Folks want to live near Metro so they can stay out of their cars. And it’s only going to get worse. 2,500 new employees are expected to join the National Naval Medical Center when Walter Reed closes, adding to an already congested rush hour. So, if you’re looking to avoid some traffic & buy a house in a neighborhood that’s convenient to Metro, search no more. I’ve got the skinny on the best spots within walking distance of the NIH.
Since they closed public access to NIH right after 911, your only access to the NIH metro stop is on the east side of the campus just off of Wisconsin Avenue. The best “walk to” neighborhoods include Read more
