If a walkable lifestyle in an urban setting is what you’re looking for — with quick access to Metro, shops, restaurants, movie theaters and music venues — you don’t necessarily have to set your sights on the District. In fact, if your budget is capped at $400,000, you may want to look outside the city limits where you can get more space and amenities without foregoing the lifestyle you want.
For example, the condo at 7915 Eastern Ave. #808 in Silver Spring, priced at $345,000, sits in a prime location within walking distance of the Silver Spring Metro station for Red Line service as well as numerous bus routes. Monthly condo fees are $384 and annual taxes are $3,430. The owners have an assumable FHA loan with a 3.25 percent mortgage rate to sweeten the deal.
The 1,080-square-foot condo, located on the eighth floor of a nine-story building, has two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The unit has an open floor plan with maple hardwood floors, floor-to-ceiling windows, granite counters, stainless-steel appliances, a stacked washer-and-dryer and walk-in closets. Water and gas are included in the condo fee.
Building amenities include a fitness center and a lounge with a kitchen, TV and billiards.
Assigned schools include East Silver Spring Elementary, Takoma Park Middle and Montgomery Blair High, all rated average or above average by GreatSchools.org based on test scores.
