We moved into this home over 12 years ago and have made some beautiful memories here. 12 years ago, the minute we walked in to see this house, it called out to us. The character of the home along with its high-quality updates to several parts of the house made it both beautiful and practical, with a low level of upkeep. Over the years, we have done the same. We updated the bathroom in the basement, the backsplash and countertops in the kitchen, all kitchen appliances and the study room to name a few things, and at every update, we put in the same consideration to quality and style the previous owners had done before us. About two years ago, we invited a professional design consultant to give us ideas for painting the rooms and adding contemporary fixtures and we think the house really shines as a result of all those efforts.
We are sad to be leaving this home. But we are even sadder to leave this neighborhood. Over these years, we have forged strong friendships and enjoyed many a fun evening with our neighbors at backyard BBQs, pumpkin carving parties, post-dinner drinks, girls (and guys) nights out and more.
Things which we didn’t appreciate when we moved here and have since found so important – being about a mile away to both Silver Spring and Forest Glen metro stations, having bus stops just a few houses away, short walk to Sligo Creek Trail where we have enjoyed walks, jogs and bike rides, walking distance to Safeway and a short drive to both Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods; easy drives to restaurants in Downtown Silver Spring and Takoma Park; and being just a 30-40 minute drive to three airports and the convenience of easy access to the highways when we have needed to go further.
As we move on to make new memories elsewhere, we wish you luck and hope you find your dreams come true as you make this house your home.
