5812 Massachusetts Avenue, Bethesda, MD 20816
MC7092038 - $699,000
I have been previewing a lot of homes this week in the Bethesda real estate market and this one deserved a second look. Since I was last in it, the house is vacant and the floors have been nicely redone. It made a big difference!
There is no disguising that it's on Mass Ave and that it's small but Mass Ave can be blunted by the fact there is an access road right in front which offers an offset and extra parking. As well, because Spider Park is literally right next door it's just so easy to pop over and play! The back yard is really usable with room for playsets and b-b-q areas, nice to have in an area that can be somewhat hilly in the terrain.
It is a small house but for the price it gets you into the Wood Acres school district and into a house that has decent space you can use. There is very little on the market in this price range. The median in Glen Mar Park for 2009 was $729,500. So finding a 3 bedroom with extra space and a bathroom on the main level is great. They tried a price that was too high for the market but should be finding their niche in the current pricing. It's tough to recover from the price reductions some time...
Location is really superb. There is quick access to two shopping centers with Giant and Safeway, Starbucks galore, The Trail, a bus stop steps away and a school system that is highly regarded.
