Description

The home here at 5985 Searl Terrace is part of the original section built by Mr. Everett Searl himself. Well known for his high quality construction, superlative carpentry staff and attention to detail, his name has always lent a special stature to the fine homes that line this prestigious street. This particular home features a spacious country kitchen that includes a fireplace in the wall of the dining area and an attractive bay window. The hardwood flooring gleams in the wide open living space all across the back of the main level which has a fireplace, a large picture window and French doors to a very substantial flagstone patio. The main level also has a den or office with built-in shelves and cabinets and a powder room. The home is only two blocks away from Wood Acres Elementary and the adjacent Wood Acres Park that is so popular in the neighborhood. The commute to downtown DC is easy and northern Virginia is convenient as well. It is less than a mile to the Crescent Trail for hiking and biking. Whitman High School area. This is a total winner!

Bethesda

Bethesda is located northwest of Washington, D.C. The community occupies a large area of land that stretches from the Capital Beltway to the District’s boundary line. In the late 17th century, Bethesda was the site of newly granted colonial plantations. Goods were transported down what is today Wisconsin Avenue to Georgetown for their export, a rural theme was played out through much of the 1800s. Bethesda received its name from a Presbyterian meetinghouse in 1871.

Like other communities outside the District, the 1890s were a time of change for Bethesda. The Chevy Chase Land Company, the same firm that had acquired and parceled land in Chevy Chase, D.C. and Maryland, developed a light rail system that coursed into Bethesda. This was a transformative circumstance that led to a boom in population and economic growth. This network substantiated further expansion of the community when the automobile was invented.

Quality of Life:

Bethesda’s progress has been relatively unheeded since the 1900s. Since then, it has evolved into a sensible and modern community that its residents greatly appreciate. Bethesda is a predominantly residential community, although there is a distinctly urban pocket surrounding the Bethesda Metro station.

Bethesda boasts some 20 art galleries, a wide array of globally minded culinary diversions and numerous boutiques.  Opportunities abound for those seeking something more. Strathmore Hall hosts world-class symphonic concerts and there are a variety of local theatres. Local food and art festivals occur on an almost monthly basis.

Getting Around:

I-495 is located just to the north. Wisconsin Avenue connects residents with their neighbors in D.C. and Rockville Pike runs to North Bethesda and beyond. Bradley Boulevard, Old Georgetown Road and River Road are major traffic arteries. Bethesda is serviced by the Red Line metro at the Bethesda Row Shopping Complex and the Medical Center, as well as by metrobus lines. The Bethesda Circulator provides free service around town. 

Airports:

Ronald Reagan National Airport:  < 15 miles.
Washington Dulles International Airport:  < 25 miles.
Baltimore Washington International Airport:  < 35 miles.
