GROSVENOR HEIGHTS SALES CENTER OPENS AS CONSTRUCTION BEGINS ON NEW BETHESDA TOWNHOMES (PHOTO)
Bethesda-based developer EYA launched its newest townhome community in Montgomery County yesterday. The sales office for Grosvenor Heights at 5430 Grosvenor Lane will now be open 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM daily.
Natural brick and cedar wood will dominate the facades of the 99 elevator townhomes that are now under construction on the 33-acre property, found in a wooded area right off Interstate 270 and the Beltway. The Grosvenor Metro station is a 15-minute walk away; a distance of 0.8 miles.
First deliveries of the $1.1 to 1.6 million townhomes are expected late this year. EYA President Bob Youngentoub emphasized the natural setting, saying, "it really feels like you’re in an oasis surrounded by trees." The site was once part of Gilbert Grosvenor's Wild Acres estate, with Grosvenor being the man for whom that area of Bethesda is now named. Grosvenor's mansion will remain on site.
Amenities will include two-car garages, 3-4 bedrooms, full-floor rooftop terrace with available outdoor kitchen and gas fireplace, and chef kitchens with Thermador cooktops and ovens; Sub-Zero refrigeration; full overlay, frameless designer cabinetry; water-saving Kohler fixtures; decorative steel stair rails and linear gas fireplaces.
Existing amenities nearby include the Bethesda Trolley Trail for pedestrians and bikers, and Fleming Park.
