Many of them have the distinctive sun porch (here it is a year round room) and a wood burning fireplace. The units have washers and dryers in unit and assigned outside parking. The community allows dogs with certain restrictions and welcomes cats warmly!

What Is The Value of Your Home at Tuckerman Station?
There are a number of sites on the internet that will give you ‘estimates’ for what your home will sell for. These sites use public records and usually some kind of algorithm to try to produce a value for your home. These sites also publicly state their ‘error rates’. That means they aren’t correct, they are simply an estimate based on incomplete date. We are happy to do a free comparative market analysis of your home or condo in Bethesda (or anywhere else in the DC metro area) and let you know what could expect to get in today’s market if you are considering selling. Our valuation is based on up to the day data for homes that have recently sold in the area. Our valuation is not based on a formula that relies on public records which can take months to update.
