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.
