Once Upon A Haus: classic Bowie Cape Cod

Real Estate Agent with Thompson Company, REALTORS® 240.593.2860 MD594797

This classic 1960s Cape Cod is in Bowie's "R" section and the post-war era subdivision  of Belair at Bowie

Belair at Bowie was built by NYC developer William Levitt, "America's biggest builder of single-family homes" (as reported by the Post in 1960). These homes were built on former plantation and horse farm land, and centered around the Belair Mansion. Unusual at the time, they were constructed on concrete slab and "basementless" but offered "all the extras you'll need for comfortable living: appliances, central air conditioning, electrical fixtures, painting, landscaping, garages, driveways, built-in TV FM antennas..." (www.boundarystones.weta.org)

This classic Cape Cod comes with all of the above (well, except for the antenna), PLUS a new A/C, new flooring throughout, new granite counters, energy efficient windows and sliding glass doors and lots of natural light, front porch, two full baths, one car garage, and great outdoor space (fully fenced backyard).

This week's charming home is this classic Bowie Cape Cod at 12109 Rockledge Drive and it is FOR SALE. If you are house-hunting in Bowie, you probably shouldn't wait to tour this home. You can also contact me for more info: 240.593.2860. 

Belair at Bowie is across from the Bowie Golf Club and close to Bowie State, Patuxent Research Refuge and BW & A trail.

Hello Andrea - although I grew up in Southern California, I became aware at a young age of the Levitt name when it came to homebuilding because of a book I read about Levittown in New York.    However, I was not aware they also built in Maryland.  Good luck finding the right buyer.

Levitt recognized the Metro DC as an ideal market for his homes Michael Jacobs, former servicemembers turned government employees in need of affordable suburban homes. Bowie was a small town then, just 600 people!
