Real estate is a family business for our family. For twenty-five years my wife, Patty, and her twin sister, Peggy, were vital players in the Erick Blackwelder Team. Patty was our Business Development Leader, and Peggy was our Listing Agent.
I left the business in 2015 to explore some other opportunities. Patty and Peggy morphed the business from The Erick Blackwelder Team to Twins Selling Real Estate. They also got laser-focused on resort and luxury homes starting in the $500,000's and up from there. They kept our motto: "Relax! You'll be treated like family."
I am back in real estate, doing my own thing, and I love the marketing that my sister-in-law Peggy does for her listings. It all starts with some world class photos of the homes she lists for sale. The Twins just listed a home for sale in the resort-style community called Potomac Shores, just 25 miles south of Washington DC at 16960 Takeaway Lane, for $645,000. Here are some highlights:
Brick steps welcome you to the front porch.
The home has 5 bedrooms and 4.5 baths on 3 levels. A door next to the breakfast room table leads to a deck with a view of the 14th fairway and green of the Jack Niclaus designed Potomac Shores golf course.
The kitchen is roomy, with lots of storage space. The cased opening at the far end of the room is the mud room where the door from the garage comes into the home.
The family room is adjacent to the breakfast area and kitchen.
Enjoy clean comfort from the gas fireplace.
The kids will enjoy large bedrooms.
You will enjoy the spacious master bedroom with hardwood floors.
The spacious master bath gives you a deep tub, a wide shower, and two large, separate vanaties.
Watch movies in your own movie theater at home.
The patio below the deck, and the deck above have a view of the 14th fairway and green on the Jack Niclaus designed Potomac Shores golf course.
A view from above the house. Notice that all of the houses on the street have front porches, and sidewalks on both sides of the streets. Potomac Shores is a walkable and neighborly community.
The Shores Club gives you The Fitness Barn, The Social Barn, and the swimming pool complex. The fitness barn is fully equipped with cardio equipment, weight machines, free weights, spin bikes, and a multi-purpose room with mats for tae kwon do classes, karate classes, jazzercize, and much more every week. There is no charge to use The Fitness Barn when you live in Potomac Shores; use of The Fitness Barn is included in your home owners association dues.
The Social Barn gives you three entertaining spaces in which to host parties, conduct classes, serve food to a large herd of people, or dance the night away. Use of The Social Barn is complimentary to Potomac Shores residents. The spaces are bright and light, with glass sliding doors, soaring ceilings, rugged wood floors, and oversized kitchen appliances.
