The 35,000-square-foot lot is comprised in part of a lightly wooded parcel fronting on Laverock Lane, which includes the broad, flat footprint of the house, a carport, and the back yard. The house sits well back from the road and is largely shielded by extensive landscaping.
The gem of the property is an additional half-acre of dense, private woods behind the house, with footpaths winding throughout.
The property has been home continuously to one family since it was built. The existing residence was completed in 1953 as a one-story, 2,000 square-foot rectangular structure designed on 4-foot intervals featuring exposed redwood ceiling beams.
The main living area is a 48-foot living / dining room, open through 4 x 7 foot glass panels to the rear yard and woods.
A detached, 300 square-foot carport is in front of the house.
Within the Beltway in Bannockburn Estates, the property is located on Laverock Lane west of Wilson Lane, a single block of lightly-traveled roadway connecting Wilson Lane to Broxburn Drive. This portion of Laverock Lane reflects the earliest settlement of the Bannockburn area with residential construction from the late 1930’s through the mid 1970’s.
The street does not serve as a shortcut to anywhere, has no speed bumps and is home to only ten residences, generally on half-acre lots. It is a comfortable, quiet, and well-settled location.
The property [Lot 22, Block 13, Bannockburn] is convenient to the public parklands of the C & O Canal and is within the Montgomery County / Walt Whitman High School district.
