Budding families and camaraderie in North Bethesda’s Old Georgetown Village
From The Washington Post
According to Alana Lasover, the best thing about Old Georgetown Village, a townhouse community near Pike & Rose, the White Flint Metro station and the Capital Beltway, starts at her kitchen window. There she views the zelkova and sycamore trees, knowing that each of the four streets in the North Bethesda, Md., neighborhood has a mix of trees — dogwoods the next street over, cherry two streets north, and dogwoods and crape myrtles to the south.
It’s also the perch from which she watches the changes in the neighborhood. She sees more children playing as young families move into this wooded enclave of 198 townhouses, built in 1979 and ’80 by Richmarr Construction, as original owners move out.
Also outside her kitchen window is the driveway, which figured in her decision to buy into the neighborhood in 1982. She had been renting a townhouse three doors down, and when she was ready to buy, she eyed a house with a driveway so that her two teenage sons would have extra room to park.
