Tuesdays are traditionally a day for real estate agents in the area to preview homes and hold Broker’s Opens. I took a look at a few homes with acreage in Potomac and Darnestown. Here’s my impression of the most interesting ones I saw today.
Bank Owned in Potomac
I get a lot of questions about foreclosures in Potomac. Normally, there isn’t much to report. Today’s the exception. 19 Pettit Court came on the market on July 26th, is priced at $964,900 and is listed by Long and Foster. This home has 3,900 sq feet of living space on the main two levels, sits on 2 acres and has a nice pool in back. All the kitchen appliances and some light fixtures have been removed, but it’s in good showing condition. The master suite and another bedroom is on the main level, and the upper level has 3 bedrooms. A buyer would likely update bathrooms, replace some carpet and paint. The cedar shake roof looks like it might be original (the home was built in 1978), but it’s hard to tell with cedar shake. No funky smells and no obvious abuse. Overall, I liked it. It’s definitely priced to sell. The previous owners paid $1,404,000 in 2005.
A Trip Back to the 1970s
13500 Deakins Lane in Darnestown sits on a jaw-droppingly beautiful lot of 13.5 acres. One could mistake the manicured back yard for a country club. This home really gives off a strong vibe. I’ve never met the owners, but I would bet this home has seen a lot of good times. There’s definitely a lot of love here — sounds corny, but that’s how it feels. The interior decor is a time capsule of the 1970s — the shag carpet, the bold wall paper, the wood paneling — its all here. I’m guessing that the buyer will fall in love with the lot and won’t mind bringing the home up to date. It’s currently priced at $1,395,000. Andrea Alderdice with W.C. & A.N. Miller/Long & Foster is the listing agent.
One Level Living with Nice Acreage
13520 Deakins Lane in Darnestown is listed for $1,199,000. It sits on over 8 acres and has quite a regal approach. The rooms are big and the hardwood floors are very nice. The kitchen has been upgraded and every view outside is fantastic. Built in 1964, it has some quirks. The super low ceilings in the basement reduce the utility of the lower level. I think the buyer on this home will place a high value on the main level layout and the privacy of the lot. Andrea Alderdice with W.C. & A.N. Miller/Long & Foster also the listing agent on this property.
