The Interiors

The “Must-Have”…a first floor family room.

Plenty of space for hanging out and watching tv- this home has a larger footprint with the extended kitchen and first floor lounging/tv space. Plenty of room for a couch a big screen. Walls of windows over look both the side and huge back yard. A new radiator will keep you warm-winter will return!

Elegance and style-a cool window overlooks the screen porch.

The living room has original wood floors and a classic mantel. A clever window lets natural light stream from the screened porch. A glass French door leads to this dream. The front door has a sweet arched little foyer that leads the way in.  The dining room has front and side windows-and room for a party sized table.

More value here! A first floor powder room tucked away with a colorful designer sink. Open stylish shelving and a side exit door to the yard. Convenient and functional.
A true circular flow for easy living and entertaining on this expanded first floor!

Up the Stairs

Three bedrooms and a bath await. These are over-sized rooms with wood floors and great closets. The larger room is secluded with built- in shelving and plenty of closets. A queen bed fits easily! Floor to ceiling closets finish this space.

Clever built-ins for books and treasures.

Two more bedrooms are on the other “wing” of this home. A cool retro bath with black and white accents and clever storage is just right.

Original wood floors, new ceiling fans and custom Hunter Douglas cordless shades finish these rooms to perfection.

Down the Stairs

A completely remodeled lower level stuns! The “entry foyer” from the garage is “Gallatin Grey” and is also in the new kitchenette and laundry room. An over sized bath is totally modern and sleek! A Kohler shower door and “White Dove” Benjamin Moore paint is stylish-Grey is the new Black!

9310 Ocala St., Silver Spring, MD 20901, lower level

A recreation room, kitchenette, bedroom and full bath-so many possibilities!

A new laundry room is bright and functional and is connected to the super fun and functional kitchenette. A stainless steel sink, Ikea cabinets and lots of counter top space has so many uses! A dreamy in-law suite, a gathering room for family, endless possibilities!

Replaced galvanized pipes in the basement are a hidden value!

New carpet in the basement and on the stairs completes this remodel. Elfa Container store shelves add the all important storage, nicely arranged by doors and room for everything! A sump pump with battery back up (cleverly hidden) adds peace of mind.

The garage is right here-with it’s own entry foyer. The walls have been “dry-locked”. Room for a car!!! Or bikes and “stuff”.


Check out the driveway:  A paver driveway that serves as more than a driveway. A great second “patio” overlooking the front garden. This new space removed a gravel driveway and was regraded to slope away from the house. A French drain added and additional drainage around the home that ends at the street.

The Dream

A screen porch to enjoy three seasons of spring, summer and fall. The original brick wall of the house is a stylish accent wall. Safety rails added to the porch also. A ceiling fan to stir the breezes. Cocktails, al-fresco meals, a quiet space-the must have space for 2016! This space overlooks a sweet front garden filled with dogwoods, azaleas, small apple trees, coral bells, bleeding hearts, peonies- framed by a lovely walkwalk to the porch. (New railings here too!)  A new roof in 2016.  Awesome condition here!

Good stuff (All upgrades)

  • A new cable line in the tv/sunroom.
  • Two new ceiling fans upstairs.
  • New kitchen faucet, refrigerator and family room radiator.
  • Hunter Douglas cordless custom shades throughout the home.
  • Hardwood floors first and second floors (new in kitchen/family room).

The Neighborhood

This hidden neighborhood of Silver Spring has character. The streets follow the contours of the land, not a boring grid. Urban planning so close to Sligo Creek Park, downtown Silver Spring and easy access to major commuter routes.  Charm and many different style homes and so close to Washington, DC.

There’s a walking path into downtown Silver Spring and Sligo Creek is mere moments away. Silver Spring is thriving, movies, a brand new state-of-the art library. The new Downtown and so close by.

This neighborhood is super close to everything: Downtown Silver Spring is just minutes away from this peaceful oasis.
Colesville Road (Rt 29) and Franklin Ave. lead to 495.

Move in condition and upgraded with style and fun!
