Description

Welcome to 2307 Homestead Drive, Silver Spring, Maryland 20902. Located in the Carroll Knolls neighborhood, this house has potential to become a lovely home. There is room to expand both into the currently unfinished basement, with good ceiling height, and out into the level, deep backyard. This 1928 brick and siding Cape Cod includes charming details like arched doorways, matching built-in china hutches in the separate dining room, 2 wood burning fireplaces (one in the living room and one in the lower level), screened porch, dormers & gable storage upstairs, even walk-in closets in both bedrooms. This location is under 1 mile to Forest Glen Metro and two short blocks from Metro bus stops, and is also close to the newly renovated and expanded Evans Parkway park as well as Homewood Park and Oakland Terrace Elementary School. Wheaton area shopping, dining, and Costco is approximately 1 mile north, and not much farther south is everything downtown Silver Spring has to offer. This property is offered as-is and will need some updates to make it shine again. Don't miss this terrific opportunity!

Wheaton

Wheaton is an urban area north of Washington, D.C. and northwest of Silver Spring.

Downtown Wheaton is situated in the center of three major thoroughfares – Georgia Avenue, Veirs Mill Road and University Boulevard. It is two miles north of the Capital Beltway. 

Wheaton takes its name from Frank Wheaton, a career Army officer and volunteer in the Union army during the Civil War. He became a local hero when he defended nearby Fort Stevens and Washington, D.C. from attacks by the Confederates.

Quality of Life:

The community is home to Wheaton Regional Park, which includes a nature center, riding stables, dog park, a picnic area with an old fashion carousel and miniature train, an athletic complex, ice rink, tennis courts, ball fields and Brookside Gardens, an award winning 50-acre public display gardens. There are over a dozen different gardens ranging from the Azalea Garden, which holds over 300 Azalea varieties, to the Aquatic garden with water flowers, two ponds and a gazebo. Many soon-to-be-married couples have been photographed in these gardens over the years.

The diversity of Wheaton’s neighborhood is reflected by the high concentration of restaurants, shops and music venues located within the vicinity of Wheaton Plaza and Westfield Wheaton Shopping Mall. Currently, the Wheaton Redevelopment Program plans to create over 1,300 residential units and nearly 600,000 square feet of retail, all the while promoting development that emphasis transit and pedestrian accessibility.

Getting Around:

With the addition of the Wheaton Metro station, as well as Metro and Ride-On buses, Wheaton has become an easily accessible community to Kensington, Chevy Chase, Silver Spring, Rockville and the District. Major roads include Veirs Mill Road, University Boulevard and Georgia Avenue.

Airports:

Ronald Reagan National Airport:  < 30 miles.
Washington Dulles International Airport:  < 30 miles.
Baltimore Washington International Airport:  < 35 miles.
