Cheverly History Part 2: The British March Through Cheverly

I Need This Home

Sorry honey, I know we haven’t talked about this just yet but about an hour ago I received an email from a local real estate agent with a link to a home on Carlyle Street. You know I’m crazy about our brick home built in the 1930’s with the nice addition and 3000 square feet….

Stunning Home on Crest

Ok, seriously?! This home on Crest Ave is listed way too low. You will be shocked. For 369K you can get a move in ready 1800 sq ft home. For all of my readers looking to buy in Cheverly, this house is a must see.

Home on 64th

48 Hours in Cheverly

Huge thanks to a friend and neighbor, Jennifer B, who wrote this post.

Let me introduce you to the green ‘Mini Kicks’ team from the Cheverly Boys and Girls Club: We are the green team. Last Saturday we played our second game of the season against  the orange team. We lost. In fact, this was the second game we lost. We still haven’t scored our first goal. That’s…

First Day of Preschool!!

Today is the first day for the kiddos attending Cheverly Weekday Nursery. Above are my pictures taken on Sat night when we attended their Open House (they meet at the Methodist Church in Cheverly) with friends. I can’t say enough about CWN. We have truly been blessed to be there. As a working mom, I…

I’m so excited to tell you that this house is for sale! Why? Because so many of you are looking for larger homes in Cheverly. I went to see it last night. Needs some updating (but not nearly as much as do many homes here) but it does have a lot of space. Best news…
