This house was Sold back in 2014.  Located in the Layhill Village Subdivision off of Bel Pre Road in Silver Spring, the 4 Level Split Level House was built in 1967.

Check out this very cool blast from the past . . . .


silver real estate: Downtown Silver Spring's Giant Land Shark - 06/23/11 02:55 PM
In Silver Spring, every year we have a summer attraction that causes a lot of excitment.  During Shark Week the Discovery Building has an ginormous inflatable shark swimming through it.  It is quite a sight to see in the skyline at the corner of Colesville Road and Georgia Avenue at the heart of Downtown Silver Spring.  The Shark has been nicknamed "Chompie".  I heard a rumor on Twitter today, which was confirmed by Silver Spring Patch, that Silver Spring's Jaws will not be in the sky this summer.  Apparently Chompie is going to be given a rest this year, but the big … (1 comments)

silver real estate: Comeback of the Tulip Magnolia - 04/20/11 04:48 PM
My old tulip magnolia was badly damaged several years ago in a wind and snow storm.  It was so sad to see the branches split off all the way down to the bottom of the trunk and even sadder to have to have such an old pretty tree of over 20 feet chopped back and almost all the way down.  I never dreamed it would return, grow or bloom again.  This year I was rewarded with a much smaller tree but healthy and in full bloom!

silver real estate: Wordless Wednesday - Camellia Blooms in Silver Spring, Maryland - 04/13/11 11:01 AM
The Camellia Bush is finally blooming.  It's very late this year.  This camellia is usually blooming by sometime in February.  I heard that the woman that owned my house way before me was best friends with a woman that lived three doors up from me.  Both women are now deceased but they had a love of gardening and "the South".  The lady that lived in my house was from South Carolina and her Camellia Bush is planted at the back of the house.  It is unusual because it has white with fushia striped flowers and on the same bush flowers that are solid fushia.  The … (5 comments)

silver real estate: Silver Spring Books - Funky Vintage Shop - Used, Out of Print and Collectible Books in Downtown Silver Spring - 04/04/11 11:22 AM
I've always liked this bookstore. The atmosphere, arrangement and smell remind me of the "bookmobile" that used to come to our neighborhood when I was a kid.  Remember them?  This place is exactly what you think of when you think of a great used book shop.  Long rows of tall bookshelves, cluttered, dusty, books piled almost to the ceiling.  It's packed with books, hardbacks, paperbacks, periodicals, reference books, magazines and a huge selection of romance novels.  The organization here is a little crazy, but searching for a book is half the fun of visiting this shop.  Just browsing in here is a great relaxing escape and I could … (10 comments)

silver real estate: Gil's Restaurant - Worth the Visit - A New Place Just on the Outskirts of Downtown Silver Spring, Maryland - 03/09/11 12:59 PM
There is a new and "improved" corner in Silver Spring.  Gil's Restaurant has opened @ the corner of Silver Spring Avenue and Piney Branch Road.  It's the corner store at the end of  the old strip shopping center on Piney Branch Road near the  intersection of Dale and Piney Branch.   
I hardly recognized this place.   It's was the site of Matchu Pitchu restaurant and then something like Lembada's (not sure of either spelling), just remember the restaurants there before were "scruffy", beat up looking, raucous at night and not very appetizing. 
The place has been painted, spruced up and there is new landscape in the front.  The … (1 comments)

Lush Majestic Settings in a coveted hidden community of only 60 estate homes. Burnt Mills Hills is a quiet pastoral neighborhood of rolling hills, lush indigenous and mature landscaping with Acre+ lots. 
Burnt Mills Hills was developed by the
R. E. Latimer Land Company in the early 1930's after purchasing the land from the McCeney Family and others.  The first and main road through the Burnt Mills Hills subdivision is McCeney Avenue.  The oldest house is a 1856 Farmhouse, that predates the development.
Silver Spring's best kept secret is this sylvan setting off of Route 29 (Colesville Road).  It's hard to believe this subdivision is so close to the Urban area of … (4 comments)
