Chevy Chase Abode with American Revolution Connection Asks $2.5M

The original owners of this abode had "remarkable ties" to the era

According to this Chevy Chase listing, the original owners of this six-bedroom single-family home fronting the broad, tree-line avenue of Meadow Lane had "remarkable ties" to the era. Evers & Co. told Curbed that these ties are that the first owner, U.S. attorney Alexander R. Mullowny, was the grandson of John Mullowny, who was the Drummer Boy for the Philadelphia militia in the American Revolutionary War.

The 1921-built abode was renovated this past year with modern finishes. In the all-white kitchen, there is recessed lighting, stainless steel appliances, and an island with a built-in sink and breakfast bar. There are multiple fireplaces throughout as well as design highlights like tray ceilings and wainscoting. In the back, there is a spacious backyard, a three-car garage, and a covered deck.

According to the property history on Realtor.com, this abode has been on and off the market since March 2015 when it asked $2.9 million. It was relisted three months after for $2.695 million before it was delisted again. Now, it's back on the market with an even lower price, $2.499 million.

For Chevy Chase, this is a pretty hefty asking price as the median listing price is just a tad above $1 million. For the neighborhood, it's not too atypical. Six abodes only a few blocks away that were sold between this and last year ranged from $1.875 million to $2.45 million.
