Letter From the Sellers

For the past 32 years, we have greatly enjoyed being part of this community. We can walk to neighborhood favorites Parkway Deli and The Daily Dish.  The Capital Crescent Trail is 2 blocks from the house and Candy Cane City a 3 minute drive.  We are a mile west of the revitalized Silver Spring downtown and 10 minutes from Bethesda’s vibrant restaurant scene.  In addition, Rosemary Hills Elementary School is around the corner and we are part of the B-CC School Cluster.
