I have been previewing a lot of Bethesda homes for sale this week. This house had gone under contract quickly when it first came on but the buyer backed out due to a slightly elevated radon reading. The sellers agreed to remediate and it should have been a no brainer! There is radon in our entire area and to think that you could find a home anywhere that didn't have radon currently or have the potential to have radon is really unrealistic.
Someone else will get the opportunity to own this really good Woodacres home with a two story addition that encompasses a family room kitchen on the main level and a superb master suite on the upper level. Everything is sited well also - kitchen at the back overlooking a nice yard and the bedroom at the back of the house as well, with enough windows to make it a light filled space that is one of the better master suites I've seen.
Woodacres is one of the best communities around and remains a highly sought after area for Bethesda real estate. Built by Albert Walker its architectural style is protected by covenants and must remain a Colonial only community. In the neighboring subdivisions you'll find plenty of splits and contemporaries but here in Woodacres it is only and will remain for ever Colonials!
Community activities such as a 4th of July parade and picnic up at the park bring out hundreds and hundreds of our residents to share in this old fashioned celebration. And Halloween starts at the Triangle (you'll get it later) with The Great Pumpkin handing out candy to all the kids, who then trick or treat up and down streets filled with costumed tykes, bags filled to the brims with goodies. You'll see everyone you know!
Woodacres Park is the site of many activities for the community and is a daily gathering ground for the toddler set as well as for any older kids looking for a tennis game, a place to play ball or gathering to practice soccer or baseball on the local fields. After school the park is filled with the sounds of happy kids releasing their pent up delight!
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.
If you are interested in what kind of offer to make for this home, contact me and we can discuss the comps and what price is supported by the recent sales and the current condition of the home.
I focus my work extensively in this area of Bethesda so I've developed a lot of expertise in the home values in Bethesda, neighborhoods, school systems and local amenities.
Additional Homes Available from $1,000,000 - $1,250,000
