It’s been a gradual climb down for this 2020 build since August, when it was originally listed at $2,999,999. Even after shaving $100k from the asking each month, it comes in significantly higher than the median sale price of about $1.1 for the neighborhood (Chevy Chase-DC). Homes in the neighborhood on average sell in 30 days.
Located on a cul-de-sac on McKinley Street, the home has 6 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms, and sits on a 0.27 acre lot. Amenities include a two-car garage and a wine room.
I couldn’t find any information on the builder, but based on similar features, I’m thinking it’s the same firm who did this home in Bethesda. Let us know if you have any info.
Exterior – 3.2
On first glance, I thought this was a listing for a condo unit. It looks like a mash-up of multiple homes… A lot of similar houses you can look at and say “Alright take out this part and it would be fine.” I struggled to do that here.
Interior – 6.4
Spacious and on-trend enough to impress most of your friends. May overstep the trendiness in areas such as the family room (the wood ceiling feels forced).
Kitchen – 5.7
If it is the same firm mentioned above, they learned their lesson by not putting gold on the vent hood. It made that whole kitchen look cheap. Next best decision: the glass uppers. It spaces out all the white a bit, though there’s still more of that than I’d personally want.
Bathrooms – 6.7
The primary flows well from the bedroom. I like the light blue paint, and it creates some nice contrast with the mirror & window frames. On the downside, it gets a little messy with all the marbly patterns between the floor, counters, and shower. Nice vanities in the secondaries.
Amenities – 4.1
I can see why no one wanted to bite at $3 mil for that patio/yard combo. At least put in a home theater or something to make up for it. This house is big/expensive enough where I don’t think that’s unreasonable.
