Kevin Durant once played Basketball on top of these Townhomes
Yes, Kevin Durant of the Golden State Warriors, played basketball at the site of the North Quarter townhomes. The tiny Montrose Christian School was once a national high school basketball powerhouse.
But the once Montrose Christian School and church site is no more. What's emerging in 2019 is a new townhouse development by Winchester Homes called North Quarter.
Branded as North Bethesda, these modern townhomes start in the $600,000's and will certainly push into the $700,000's if the builder can help it. After months of site development, the model homes are going up fast. As of May 20, 2019 -- they look to be just about a month out.
You can expect the typical modern townhome style now of a 2-car garage with a small room on that same ground level, an open floor plan on the kitchen and living room level, 3-bedrooms with 2-baths and a laundry closet on the 3rd level, and the upper level with the rooftop deck and additional bedroom, hangout area, and full bath.
North Quarter Townhome Location and What's Nearby
These new townhomes are walkable to the shopping center next door (major tenants are Badlands Playspace and Chucky Cheese), and about 1/2 mile walk to My Organic Market and 1-mile to Pike & Rose.
The White Flint METRO is 1.2 miles away.
What are the biggest options that most people take in these new townhomes?
Don't be fooled by the models. These are the decked out townhomes the builder wants you to love. So suddenly, because you've now seen them, the options seem like "must haves" in your mind.
And these are the big ones that most people want, and most people take:
- Powder room on the kitchen and living room level
- Full bathroom on the upper (rooftop deck) level
- Engineered wood beyond the main living level (Yes, it's not real wood anymore folks)
There might be additional packages for pimping out the rooftop deck, adding more crown moulding, and upgrades on appliances, but the above are the biggest ones. And adding the additional bathrooms really does make a difference. Value wise, those would be the best options to add.
If you're handy or have contractors at your disposal (I do for my clients), then you could potentially save a little (emphasis on little) on adding a new bathroom later. But the biggest difference might be in the materials selected. The builder will likely have limits on selections.
