Imagine you have around $2.5 million to spend on a place and you've narrowed it down to two Chevy Chase single-family homes. How do you make up your mind? The answer is simple: you shove them into a metaphorical cage and let them battle it out until one emerges victorious. It's time for Real Estate Deathmatch.
↑ First up is this newly constructed Chevy Chase listing at 4800 Morgan Drive. It offers six bedrooms in 6,500 square feet of space. Some of the most luxurious details that would help it stand out from any crowd are its theater and rec rooms and its screened-in porch with a wood burning fireplace. Other highlights include its ceiling paneling, built-ins, and gourmet kitchen. The asking price totals $2.5 million.
↑ This single-family home at 6800 Connecticut Avenue has the same number of bedrooms as the former listing and is $1,000 more affordable. It does come with one additional bathroom, but is 745 square feet smaller. While this listing was built in 1923, it was recently renovated. This abode first landed on the market March 30, 2015 for $2.9 million, and has since been on and off the market. Each time it's relisted, the price has dropped.
