9229 Bentridge Avenue - Fallsreach - $1,149,000

9229 Bentridge Avenue - Potomac
Listed by Long and Foster

Fallsreach is a fabulous neighborhood on the west side of Falls Road.  Built in the late 1970's through early 1980's - this was a "move-up" community for many in the Potomac area in the 60's and 70's.  The homes are solidly constructed and well appointed.  Most have been updated to some extent and as with most neighborhoods in Potomac ~ the schools are fabulous.

This home is tucked in on a pipe stem just off Bentridge Avenue.  The location is off the main street and offers a nice private enclave shared with another home.  There is an enormous amount of open space next to the home that will never be built upon. Although some will be concerned about the high tension wires - others will see it as a guarantee of privacy for the future.

This home was built by Mitchell and Best in 1980.  The owners have recently updated the home with a huge side addition.  You enter into a tile foyer with nicely painted walls and trim.  An extended dining room is to the right and a large family room and fireplace to the left.  Lovely hardwood is laid throughout the first level - including the addition.

The kitchen is HUGE.  Granite and high end appliances with a very large island highlight the kitchen.  Plenty of space for bar stools - and a great spot for a party.  The kitchen extends to a breakfast area that is large enough to fit half of the neighborhood.  Filled with windows - it has great light and pleasant views.

There is a large room behind the garage that is a fabulous office.  This large space would be perfect for a home based business.  It is unexpected space - discretely tucked in behind the garage.  This home is full of surprises.  The addition on the right side of the home is quite large.  Two rooms can be used for purpose you like.  Living room, dining room - larger family room.  Make your choice and furnish appropriately.

Upstairs has 3 large bedrooms and a fabulous extended master suite.  A large master bath with Green marble - extra large shower stall and lots of light will please the most critical of buyers.  Other bedrooms are large enough for teens to stretch out and never complain about space.

The basement is finished - so if you ever need more space - here it is.  The basement has not been updated in a while - but who cares?  More space than you will ever need are on the main levels.

Wow - this home is big!  On a square foot basis it is a steal at the price.  My only concern is will the neighborhood support the value?  It would be the most expensive home sold in Fallsreach ever.  With the power lines and private pipe stem - it may not appeal to all buyers.  I see this one selling for over a million - but where over a million?  Depends upon the market.  Look for this one to settle between $1,025,00 and $1,050,000 when all is said and done.  It may take a while - as many of the million plus buyers are looking for a location closer to Potomac Village.
