Meet Your Neighbors: Mike Gregory and Ravel Lutz

Meet Mike Gregory and Ravel Lutz. I met them for the first time last night! They are an outgoing and energetic couple who are open, warm, kind and funny. I first heard of Ravel when she wrote a message on the blog’s Facebook wall saying that she lived in Cheverly for 37 years and that it “keeps getting better and…

We Will Miss You, CHVBlog

It came to my attention that ChvBlog will be hanging up their hat. We at the CHVBlog believe it is time to say good-bye.  It has been a good run and we plan on shutting down at the end of the month.  We would like to greet a new town blog – I Choose Cheverly (http://ichoosecheverly.com) as…

Shop Around Town

Look at this beauty and let’s shop around town. The house above is a smaller 945 sqft Cheverly home. But it’s beautiful. It needs an updated kitchen and if you need more room, you can definitely add on. Why? Because it’s listed (on the market now for 2 days) for 270,000. 270K to live in an…

Park Progress

We are making progress on the Cheverly-Euclid park. I can’t wait to see the finished product.

Meet Your Neighbors and Why I Choose Cheverly: Pam, Carley, Izzy and Gio

Meet your neighbors, Pam and daughter Carley, and Carley’s children Izzy and Gio. Pam’s office is three floors under me at work and whenever we run into each other there is always laughter. If you don’t know Pam, you should!  Here is her story and an explanation on why she “chooses Cheverly”. I chose Cheverly in March 2000 because I…

Coming Soon…

I’m imagining new shutters, a new door, flowers in front…and new owners to fix this up soon. Bonus: it’s only a block away from the Cheverly pool.

A Few Of My Favorite Things: Taqueria La Placita

                  I’m cheap. And that’s one of the many reasons why I subscribe to the Washingtonian. I love their “Cheap Eats” issue. And this is how my family discovered the hidden gem, Taqueria La Placita. Only a short 5 minute drive away from Cheverly on Edmonston Rd,…

Future Cheverly

You are looking at the future “master plan” for the Cheverly Town Park. I cannot wait…! The Mayor, Mike Callahan, told me that the town will start building the stage this fall, “The cool part of the stage is we are trying to design it so that it will have a portable cover to protect…

New on the Market!

Cheverly has a new house on the market- 6009 Forest Road. This home built in 1939 and has  great character. It even has a garage! My son and I stopped by the open house on Sunday to get a sneak peek and it was lovely. My favorite part of the house was the screened in deck in front….

Pool Nostalgia

Some of my best childhood memories happened while on a swim team in Fairfax, VA. I lived in VA from ages 5-10 and my family spent almost every summer day at the pool. My mom would bring spare change and occasionally she would let me buy something from the snack bar. Lik-A-Maid was my favorite choice. I can’t believe she let me…

A short 2.8 mile drive from Cheverly, the Community Forklift is known as a “thrift store for house parts” and its been on my to do list…
