Cheverly History

A moment’s thought during this hot weather will convince you of the advisability of owning your own home somewhere other than in the hot city. Yet you do not want to go away from the comforts of the city. That’s why Cheverly should appeal to you so strongly. Look into it. Cheverly makes a distinctive appeal…

We Choose Wednesdays: Saint Linda

Just about every morning for the eight-plus years we’ve lived in our house, the day arrives with the light of sunrise spilling over the head of our bed. And just about every morning, whether scrambling to get the children to school or in my nightgown working, I’ve marked the time between 6:30 and 7:00 a.m….

Community Musings

It was a big weekend at my house. We had a pig roast for some friends who are moving and had 100+ people in our backyard. I’m so grateful to my neighbors who provided beautiful purple flowers from a tree in their backyard that I could use for table decorations, two families in our hood…

Friday Night=Movie Night

Hello. Are we not the coolest neighborhood around?! Who wants to fight traffic on Friday night in DC? I don’t. Nope. I want to walk my boys over to VBS and then…if they are not asleep by the end…drive them a few blocks away to the pool. And all of these activities are run by…

Our Weekend In The Chev (In Pictures)

And this is how our weekend went: Weekends are made for resting, eating, and swimming in Cheverly. On Friday night we walked to the Ice Cream Social. Thank you to Cheverly United Methodist Church.

More Love for the Cheverly Pool

Let’s Go Cheverly!! Do you see the excitement? If you didn’t make it to the Cheverly Swim Meet last night, you missed out. Not only did my boys play in the dirt and on the playground equipment, they also got to see their young friends race at the pool. It was a beautiful evening full…

Our Local Cheap Eats

I’m a bargain shopper- and that doesn’t change when it comes to food. That’s why I love when the Washingtonian comes out with their Cheap Eats edition of their magazine. Of course, it has taken me a couple months to even pick up the magazine but I had some free time this weekend. Surprisingly, the first restaurant…

Not Ready To Buy? How About Renting?

Boy oh boy, do I have the house for you: For only $2285 you can have this 4 bedroom 2.5 bath on a great street (Parkway) in Cheverly. Cheverly is a great place to rent. Most people I know on Capitol Hill share a home with 3 roommates and still pay around $1000 per person. Instead,…

Real Estate Update

Okay, I really like this house. Haven’t been inside but I’m dying to paint the fireplace and bookshelves white and hang up some beautiful art work on the white walls. Who wants to sit on the porch with a glass of wine? Me. So…this lovely is up for sale. The address is 6105 Lombard Street…
