The Most Expensive Home in East Mt. Airy Is a Terrific Renovation

Property’s Property of the Week: 500 Woodbrook Lane in East Mt. Airy


This 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath in East Mt. Airy was last purchased in February 2011 for $340,000 and is now selling, two years later, for $625,000. That makes it the most expensive home on the market in that area. Why? Upgrades and a canny renovation, my friends, with name brands to boot. In the kitchen there’s a cast iron farm sink, Carrara marble countertops and Italian porcelain tile floors. There’s two-zoned central air, a dressing room with built-in shelving, a master bath with dual marble sinks, as well as a powder room with gray walls and a chandelier that a new buyer probably can’t keep but that is a stroke of genius in the tiny space. There’s also a finished basement (currently home to some lonely midcentury furniture), a agarage, a fenced yard around landscaped grounds, and a porch. The whole house is 3,700 square feet of renewed and upgraded loveliness.
Open House: 3/10 12pm-2pm
