I Want This Washington, D.C. House: $749K in Chevy Chase
The home at 5218 Chevy Chase Pkwy. is a few blocks from the major thoroughfare, which radiates diagonally from the White House.
The house on a corner lot is a semi-detached Wardman home, designed by Harry Wardman, an early 20th-century real estate developer in Washington, D.C. who built landmark hotels, luxury apartment buildings and many row houses.
The colonial-style home, built in 1925, has a simple feature that all homes should have (and help neighbors interact) -- an inviting front porch. It practically begs you to put a few rocking chairs down, make some lemonade and sit down and chat or read the newspaper.
If the porch doesn't entice you, the four-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath home also has a marble foyer, living room with fireplace, den and sun-filled sitting room that can be used as a playroom. The four-level home is 1,840 square feet.
The current price, $749,500, was reduced in February from $769,000. Comparable homes in the neighborhood have recently sold for an average of $760,083, so this Chevy Chase home is a great find.
