Famous People's Houses in Silver Spring Md - Lefty Driesell

Real Estate Agent with Long & Foster Real Estate, Inc MD 82788 DC SP97220

Unless you are a big NCAA enthusiast or a big University of Maryland "Terrapins " fan, you may have never heard of Lefty Driesell.  He was the University of Maryland's Legendary Basketball Coach from 1969 to 1986.  At Maryland, Driesell began the now nationwide tradition of Midnight Madness.

Built in 1968, this very cool, big contemporary split level was the home of Charles "Lefty" Driesell until he sold it and moved in 1988.

                 Lefty Driesell House in Silver Spring MD

This unique custom built home is on a short, no-thru street in the subdivision known as 
Valleybrook. The home is set on a densely wooded 1/2 acre within walking distance to Springbrook High School.

The bright main level of the house has vaulted ceilings and extra windows everywhere. The home has 4 bedrooms and 2 full baths on the upper level; plus an extra bedroom and full bathroom in the lower level.  The backyard is level and private, it has (of course) a half court basketball court.  The house overlooks Northwest Branch Park.

More on highlights of 
Lefty's career and my all time favorite quote from him:

Debbie I never heard of Lefty but not a surpise since I know very little about sports. 

I like when a home is setback among trees and I am not suprise Lefty would have a basketball court.
