The "Homicide House" Finally Finds a Buyer

The saga of the Silver Spring's so-called "Homicide House" appears to have (hopefully) come to an end. As I drove by this morning, I noticed that a SOLD sign has been posted in the yard of the home, which has been on and off the market for about two years now.


The ultimate sale price hasn't been posted yet, but I'm certainly curious to see what the buyer(s) paid for this property. The most recent asking price I was able to locate was $399K (way down from $549K in March of this year). Unless the new owners are among the least Internet-savvy people on the planet, they must have been familiar with the house's sordid history, address changes notwithstanding.

You know, it's not really the end. All the sale does is open another chapter in the home's history. Who knows, like Derry, Maine, the house could have a toxic thread running through it ....

I hope the new owners do know the history. But if you type "9335 columbia" "silver spring" into google, the first mention of the homicides is the 20th search result (which is a link to this blog). The vast majority of the results are listing to real estate sites. I guess it's a good reminder to look carefully at all of the google results.

so? someone was murdered in that house. If you move to PG county odds are every house is a crime house....ok maybe not every but a pretty sizable number. then again that could be why no respectable person who think to move to PG county. Or wheaton

It's not that a person was murdered in that house; the last two owners and an owner's daughter were mudered in the house.

Your PG County/Wheaton statement is just plain stupid.

List of upcoming FV development presentations, courtesy of ESSCA listserv:

There are 3 public Meetings in December for new developments in Fenton Village, this is our golden opportunity to understand the changes and voice opinions.

The Adele: Thursday December 6, 7:30 PM, @ The Baptist Church at Fenton & Bonifant
See additional details below

Studio Plaza: Thursday, December 13, 7:00 PM @ The SS Civic Center
See additional details below

Bonifant Senior Housing: Monday, December 17 @ the SS Civic Center
See additional details below

If you want to have a say in the future of Fenton Village then come out for about an hour and see what the developers have proposed.
This is a public process and will be part of the development record on these projects. The Developers have to record your comments - you can speak to the height, massing, appearance, parking, density, use, etc. You can also see three different developments and compare the different approaches of the different development teams. You can hear your neighbor's opinions and concerns as well. If you believe that Fenton Village needs to be developed in a manner supported by the local community - then please come out and be part of the process.

The Adele
The Adele is a project at the SW corner of Fenton and Thayer – on the lot of the closed auto repair shop and the adjacent empty lot, right across Fenton from Wellers Dry Cleaners. (D on the attached Map) The Adele had gone through the Project Plan process back around 2008. The property went into foreclosure and last spring the note was bought by the bank holding the note. There is a new developer and architect on board and they are responding to current market trends. Originally proposed to be 8 stories, 96 residential units, commercial and office. The project has been revised since previous presentations so the full program may be different now. (D on the attached map)

Studio Plaza
Since the fall, the Developer was told by the Planning Staff to make changes to the building and this is the public presentation of those changes. We hope the changes are significant. IA strong showing by the community will reinforce to the Developer and the County Government that the local community is serious about its concerns with this development and the future of Fenton Village. Studio Plaza was designed to relate to the new hi rise towers in the Ripley District (along the train tracks), while ignoring the existing fabric of Fenton Village and the adjacent residential community. Phase One:11 stories, 415 units, Phase Two undefined at the last presentation. Currently in Site Plan Review (E on the attached map)

Senior Housing
On Bonifant, adjacent to the new library, where the vacant lot is currently. This is the public unveiling of this project. It is proposed to be 8 stories, 110 residential units for seniors - affordable. Street level retail. It has yet to file for Project Plan review. (B on the attached map). Most of the new developments are market rate apartments geared for young professionals. This is a project that is geared for seniors - which would mean Silver Spring would be a more balanced community in regards to age.

Oh yay! An old folks home! Awesome!

Sligo said...

But would it have a skybridge to the library??

So long as they're senior hipsters, I'm cool with it.

the wheaton comment is dead on.

Anonymous said...

...except it's not. How many murders do you think have occurred in Wheaton in the last decade? Or last 1,000 years, for that matter. Obvious trolling.

Anonymous said...

There are seriously more shootings in 1 night in the tiny neighborhood of U St. than the whole of Wheaton has in 6 months. Wheaton has problems, but violent crime isn't very high on the list. Not sure if you're a racist or just ignorant - either way, now you know.

disliking Wheaton and thinking it is a craphole means the person is racist? Love this blog. everyone is a racist that doesnt agree with me!

Anonymous said...

Huh? I typed that and I dislike Wheaton. Disliking Wheaton doesn't make you either a racist or ignorant. Saying there are tons of murders makes you either racist or ignorant.

Sligo said...

Do we really need THE SAME ARGUMENT in every post?

sligo - i guess

I agree that wheaton doesnt have a ton of murders- besides isnt the murder house on the border of wheaton? It's silver spring technically right?

Anonymous said...

The house is located in Woodside Village, which is in Silver Spring, not Wheaton.

Lisa said...

Poor Sligo ... he makes the effort to give all of us a very decent blog, and some idiots get in the way with their continuous stupid comments --- just go away if you haven't anything worthwhile to say ...

Anonymous said...

It IS a decent blog. There's nothing wrong with having some stupid bante....

We had dinner at Taqueria Distrito Federale last night. It was great, just like the taquerias I've been to in Mexico. Friendly staff, too. Worth a review on this blog!
