New residential construction inside the Beltway in Montgomery County is a rarity, and that’s why sales are brisk at The Brownstones at Chevy Chase Lake, EYA’s new elevator town home community at the corner of Connecticut Avenue and Chevy Chase Lake Drive.
Just six months since the initial model opened on site, more than one-third of the 62 luxury town homes have sold.

The October 14th opening of the newest model home – The Avalon – is expected to elevate buyer interest even more, according to McLean Quinn, EYA Vice President of Land Acquisition and Development.
The nearly 3,000 square-foot Avalon -- one of five home configurations available at Chevy Chase Lake -- offers a customizable floor plan with three to five bedrooms, a private rooftop terrace and two-car garage. Prices start at $1.49 million based on options.

“Chevy Chase Lake has been one of our fastest selling communities, and it really begins with its unparalleled location,” Quinn said. “The close proximity to downtown Bethesda and the Columbia Country Club across Connecticut Avenue is a big draw, and now that the Purple Line light rail construction is underway, buyers are excited about the transit options and accompanying retail that will be coming to the neighborhood.”
A new mixed-used residential and retail development is planned surrounding the nearby Connecticut Avenue light rail station.

For commuters, the Purple Line will provide one-stop access to Bethesda Station on Metro's Red Line and will be just three stops from the Silver Spring Transit Center, which connects to the second branch of the Red Line.
Ideally situated near -- but not on -- Connecticut Avenue, Chevy Chase Lake offers easy access to all parts of the region and downtown DC, with I-495 being just a five-minute drive and the District line less than 10 minutes away.

Quinn says the neighborhood’s many benefits are attracting a diverse mix of buyers.
“For many, it’s an opportunity to down size from large, older homes in Chevy Chase and DC and enjoy a lock-and-leave lifestyle that requires no maintenance and little upkeep,” he said. “For Millennials it has a lot to do with the walkability the neighborhood offers with shopping, dining and transit connections in close proximity.”
After the Saturday, October 14th Avalon opening event, private appointments to tour the Avalon and other models are available between 11am and 6pm daily. Simply call 301-888-6760 or go online here to select your preferred time.
