Some Silver Spring Real Estate Porn

Not that I have intentions of moving anytime soon, but one of my hobbies has become browsing Silver Spring real estate listings for any unique properties that might be on the market, be they pagodas or houses with English pubs in their basements.

Springtime is always a prime period for real estate transactions, and there's a few prime listings in Silver Spring that recently caught my eye:

This house at 1108 Woodside Parkway appears fairly unassuming in this photo taken from its front yard...


...but the virtual tour reveals why this eight bedroom house is priced at a cool $1.6M (originally $1.9M), likely placing it among the most swanky properties in and around downtown Silver Spring. (In Chevy Chase, this would be considered a starter home.) To put the price in perspective, the most expensive house sold in the 20910 ZIP code in the last three years went for $1.2M.

For starters, check out the the library. For someone whose books are presently stored in a collection of mismatched Billy bookcases in his basement, this sun-drenched room with a vaulted ceiling and built-in bookshelves is like a dream.


The house even has a loggia, an architectural feature so fancy I had to look it up. The only loggia I knew about was Robert.


And, to top it all off, there's a 50' heated pool in the backyard. Whoever ultimately buys this home, please invite me to your pool parties. No, really, please.


UPDATE: as commenter Joel S. points out, this home is Pepco-proofed, with two generators:



Not quite as grand, but still nice is this house on Sligo Creek Parkway that just hit the market for $1.3M. This is one of my favorite houses in Silver Spring, and I have long wondered what it might fetch on the open market.


While the house itself is attractive, a decent portion of the asking the price may be associated with the fairly large lot on which it sits. (Note that this house also has a pool, albeit a more humble one.)

For those who prefer multi-unit dwellings, one of the penthouses of the Mica Condos is on the market at $875K. The Mica may not be the newest of condo buildings, but its location towards the edge of downtown does provide some upper-floor residents with sweeping views of Washington.

Its terrace would be a sweet place to host parties. Again, future owners, please invite me.


Also, a brief follow-up to my recent post on International Style houses: the one on Flower Avenue recently changed hands. The fact that no photos were included in the listing and the words 'as-is' and 'fixer-upper' were used means it was pretty dumpy, but hopefully the new owners do a decent job cleaning it up.

My favorite pic on the virtual tour of 1108 Woodside is the last - dual generators to "keep power on regardless of the weather." Love it.

Stimey said...

I think that looking at photos of houses for sale would make me really sad and possibly decide to burn my crappy house to the ground.

I wanna live in the first house. I'll totally invite you to pool parties if you help with the down payment.

ChevyChaser said...

Ok, I'm going to say it:
$1.6M to live in Silver Spring??? Sort of misses the whole point of Silver Spring.

Wait till the Fillmore opens up. Beyond our excellent public spaces, diverse food selection, and AFI, we'll have a great music venue. Me looves Silver Spring!

what's this about porn?

Robert said...

While 1108 Woodside Parkway might have a higher price if it were in parts of Chevy Chase, you'd be paying for a name rather than for quality of the neighborhood and convenience. Don't believe me, "Chevy Chaser,"? ... just take a walk around Woodside Park. The homes are comparable to those in Chevy Chase, the lots are generally bigger, and you can walk to Metro in 15 minutes or walk to the new downtown Silver Spring in 10. And you can drive to either of two beltway entrances in 5 minutes.

Really? Paying that much for a Condo like that in Silver Spring?

I mean it's beautiful and a great view but the kind of people who want to live in a place like that are usually young, vibrant and outgoing and want a vibrant social scene.

Sadly Silver Springs social scene is anything but "vibrant"

Sligo said...

If you are young and single, you probably can't afford a $900K penthouse alone.

MimiX said...

Mica isn't new construction, but its rehab/condo conversion was very recent. Something like 2007.

Debbie Cook said...

The inside of that house on Sligo Creek Parkway looks like something right off the set of MAD MEN.

Cape Coral Properties said...

The pictures of the homes kept me reading your whole blog. The 1108 Woodside Parkway home for me is the best. The library room is awesome.

Cape Coral Rental Management said...

I agree, the library room is awesome. Thanks for the great reference post. Just what I was looking for!

IT looks like this place was sold finally for 785K: http://www.redfin.com/MD/Silver-Spring/1220-Blair-Mill-Rd-20910/unit-4/home/11760776

But if you slice that pool into 1,000 pieces, then each resulting security will be as cheap as one house, only with dramatically less volatility. williams realty raleigh
