SOLD!! 3-acre lot in Ashton/Silver Spring, MD

Real Estate Agent with Thompson Company, REALTORS® 240.593.2860 MD594797

This 3-acre lot on New Hampshire Ave in the Ashton/Silver Spring, MD area is the site of a future dream home. Perc-approved for a 6-bedroom home, with a pre-approved septic and forest conservation plan, this lot is as ready-to-built as possible. We received lots of calls on this property and had to disappoint quite a few buyers. Some were hoping to subdivide (it's zoned large lot residential and not possible), others wanted to build a church (while conditional uses are permitted, a church is not), and quite a few didn't understand that a ready-to-built lot is much more valuable than raw land. 

But, we found just the right buyers who are planning on building their dream home on this lot and enjoying all 3 acres of it! After navigating some contract hurdles - rarely are transactions just a straight line to the closing table - we celebrated a Happy Closing Day yesterday! 

Congratulations to our sellers, and a shout-out and huge Thank You to Oak Hill Construction. You guys are the best! Thank you for your expertise, assistance, and awesome teamwork!

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!! That is awesome. It sounds as if you overcame some hurdles and found a way to get to the finish line - settlement. It looks like a gorgeous lot, and 3 acres will give lots of privacy for the buyers.

Thank you, Nick!! There were some hiccups along the way but we worked it all out and closed on time! It's such a great lot, level to boot. I am glad that there's large lot residential zoning to preserve the character of the area. Quite a few callers asked about subdivision potential.

We call Oak Hill Construction our "in-house" contractor with much appreciation! They are always there to assist our clients, reviewing inspection reports, writing repair estimates, assisting with getting a house (or land) ready for the market, or working with our clients to make improvements after closing. We are lucky to have them, Dorie Dillard Austin TX! Thank you!

That should be impressive once its built and hopefully the owners will insist that the trees that are the healthiest be kept for character.

A forest conservation plan was already pre-approved by the county, Ed Silva, 203-206-0754. The buyers know which trees have to be kept. It will be a while but I'm looking forward to seeing their dream home being built.

This lot was a gem, Nina Hollander, Broker! Ready-to-built land is hard to find, it was level to boot, and it's in a wonderful area.
