Town of Oakmont Documents


Charming 3BR/1.5BA colonial within the limits of the chartered Town of Oakmont in Bethesda, MD. Rare 70-ft wide lot (in a neighborhood of 50-ft wide lots) with off-street parking, fantastic exterior features including off-street parking, a covered front porch entrance, a spectacular rear screened-in porch, and a private fenced rear yard. Special interior features include hardwood flooring throughout most of the main and upper levels, new painting, new carpeting, ceramic tile baths, and an English basement with walls of full-sized windows. Some updating is expected, but you get to do so with one of the larger models originally built in Oakmont.  Concrete walkway to covered front porch entrance; front door with glass window side transom windows, and glass storm door; foyer entrance tile flooring and coat closet; ceramic tile powder room with pedestal sink; living room spans front-to-back with hardwood flooring, brick wood-burning fireplace, floor-to-ceiling picture windows, and side glass block windows; separate dining room with hardwood flooring, picture window, and chandelier; kitchen and breakfast area with sliding glass door to rear screen-in porch; cathedral ceilings and skylights in screened-in porch with stairs to lower rear yard; three bedrooms in the upper level each with hardwood flooring; full ceramic tile bath with ceramic tile wall and tub surround; hardwood flooring on upper landing with solid oak stairs, wrought iron railings and two linen closets; English basement featuring lower level recreation room with knotty pine paneled walls, new Berber carpeting, built-in bar, walls of full-daylight windows, utility room/ storage, and rear walk-up access to rear yard.  Oakmont is a lovely tree-lined residential community of 60 homes. Residents are drawn by the proximity of the National Institutes of Health across the street, by the County’s Ayrlawn Park at the end of the streets, and by the sense of community exhibited in the annual town picnic and block party. Covering approximately 18.5 acres off Old Georgetown Road, Oakmont consists of just two streets, both sides of Oak Place and the south side of Oakmont Avenue. It was chartered by the State in 1918, and as an incorporated town of Montgomery County, Oakmont collects taxes for use in carrying out its responsibility to maintain its streets, including lighting, and manage sanitation services.
