Single Family Homes and Townhouses in Bethesda Development

Placeholder while loading article actions

Ananta Islam and Carolina Rahman, who had lived in a townhouse in Gaithersburg, Maryland, for six years, needed more space and started looking for a single-family home in Bethesda.

It had to be a new house and big enough for the couple and their two children, aged 6 and 3. “We were looking to get closer to Bethesda,” said Islam, 40, a businessman. “We need space” And home renovation was not for him.

Islam and Rahman found what they were looking for in a new community, called Amalyn, where 304 residences are planned: 154 single-family homes, 110 townhouses at market price and 40 townhouses that Montgomery County is making available in as Moderately Priced Housing Units (MPDUs). ).

“It’s a planned community with state-of-the-art amenities,” said Julie Dillon, director of marketing for the DC Metro division of Tri Pointe Homes, one of Amalyn’s two builders.

The focal point of the community will be a 4,000 square foot clubhouse with an outdoor swimming pool, children’s play pool, indoor and outdoor fitness center, sundeck, private cabanas and an outdoor bar. Amalyn’s green space will include a Zen garden and walking paths throughout the community.

Amalyn’s site plan appears in the shape of a heart when viewed from above, and the name is derived from the Latin word ‘amare’ or ‘to love’. The community is located on 75 acres approximately 4.5 miles from downtown Bethesda. Purchased by Toll Brothers, Amalyn’s other builder, from Cumulus Media for $74.1 million, the land is the former site of four WMAL radio towers demolished in November 2020.

Finding new construction in the Bethesda area isn’t easy, and most new homes are built in existing neighborhoods, usually on land where a 1950s or 1960s home was torn down.

In Amalyn, Tri Pointe Homes and Toll Brothers are building a whole new community, which will be completed in two or three years. “It feels like a little oasis in the middle of Bethesda,” Dillon said.

So far, Tri Pointe has one finished model single-family home and Toll Brothers is selling 125 single-family homes from an on-site sales office. Tri Pointe is building 29 single-family homes, with prices starting at $1.7 million, as well as the 110 market-priced townhouses, starting at $1.2 million, and the 40 MPDU townhouses. This report focuses on Tri Pointe single family homes and townhouses at market price.

Select single-family homes in Tri Pointe are expected to be move-in ready as early as October. They come in two models: the Sequoia and the Oakley. Both are offered with a choice of three exterior styles – Prairie, Farmhouse and Tudor – if purchased before construction begins. The goal is to build a community with different exterior styles for a varied visual impact.

The basic three-level redwood (including the lower level) has four bedrooms, three full bathrooms, and a powder room (half bath). It can be expanded to accommodate up to six bedrooms, six full bathrooms and a powder room. The square footage of the Sequoia ranges from 5,300 to 5,900.

The basic three-level Oakley (including the lower level) has four bedrooms, three full bathrooms, and a powder room. It can also be expanded and the square footage ranges from 4,690 to 5,700.

Both models come standard with a two-vehicle garage and finished playroom on the lower level, and a number of optional upgrades are offered for the lower level.

Islam and Rahman chose the Oakley model with the Farmhouse exterior. “Every detail was an option,” Islam said. The couple had three or four appointments to make their selections. In the end, they went with four bedrooms. “It’s not huge,” he said. “We didn’t want a house that swallowed us up.”

Tri Pointe Homes has a design studio in Potomac, Maryland where homeowners can book appointments and make a wide range of choices. “You can customize [your home] adding different outdoor living choices – screened porch, covered porch, uncovered porch,” Dillon said. Options for a finished lower level include a wine cellar, bar, full bedroom and bathroom. Homeowners also make choices on details such as countertops, lighting, doors, flooring, bathroom tiling, showerheads, and the color scheme throughout the home.
