Olney, Maryland - townhome community
Norbeck Grove community association

Olney Elementary
Rosa Parks middle
Sherwood High School

This community also has single family detached homes. 
These townhouses range from aprox 1,900 to 2,300 square feet, plus the basement.  They are nice open layouts with high 9 feet ceilings on all floors, including the lower level basement.  Big windows and abundant sunshine makes it's way into the home. These are 3 level townhomes built in 1999/2000, and come with one or two-car garages.

To get here, would most likely be determined by the time of day.  During rush-hour, you would want to avoid Georgia Avenue as you get closer to Olney.  Thus, make a left onto Emory Lane shortly after the ICC.

Home Inspection
What does Seller pay for?  What does Buyer pay for?

1) The inspector comes out for inspection during winter.  The a/c compressor can't be run when it's below a certain temperature.  Home Inspector won't turn it on and therefore can't verify that it's working.

2) Inspector goes up on ladder to check roof.  Wait, there's frost on the roof.  Inspector refuses to walk up there.  Roof doesn't get proper inspection.

3) House has a sump pump in the basement. 
There's a pvc tube lying across the top of the enclosure cap.  Inspector says he can't open the cap to check if pump is working correctly.

These are all scenarios I have recently run into with my clients.  The first, I represented the Buyers.  The other two, I represented the

Trotter's Glen
new homes

Luxury home neighborhood under construction.  Several sites are complete, but Lots remain available. This was the Trotter's Glen golf course nestled back in the southern part of Olney.

Going north on Georgia Avenue, you'll make your first right after you cross over the ICC bridge, onto Batchellors Forest Road.

You'll first see the golf course and homes on your right, then more homes once you make a left onto Seabiscuit Drive. The starting price has been around 1.2 mil.  These homes are designed with about 4,000 - 6,000 square feet and are on large lots, ranging from 3/4 to 2 acres.  Underground utilities... thus no ugly utility poles! 
I have listed below many of the features that come with these Toll Brothers' homes.

New Townhomes in Bethesda Near Montgomery Mall

EYA's latest development is tucked into a unique spot...

If you're looking for a modern townhome tucked into a semi-urban area near a large shopping mall and major roads, then EYA's Montgomery Row might make your short list.

With townhomes running from $800,000 and up, the Montgomery Row townhomes are actually some of the more affordable in the EYA inventory. This location is surprisingly quiet because it's not a heavily foot trafficked area. Mostly cars going at 30-35mph in route to their offices or going to Montgomery Mall.

The mall and other stores and restaurants, including the Home Depot, are definitely walkable at about 1/2 mile away.

Route 270, 495, Democracy Boulevard, and Old

Watch the video, and certainly call me if you'd like to explore this option.
