View as Map

Welcome to Bar Crawl Living where we find some worthy domiciles within stumbling distance of a neighborhood hotspot. If there's a place you want us to scope out, leave a comment or send word to our tipline.

A little different than the usual Bar Crawl Living, but 2013 is going to be the year of variety. And to get this ball rolling, let's hang at W. Curtis Draper Tobacconist in Bethesda. While the name sounds pretentious, the vibe inside is warm, friendly, and like stepping back in time. The cigar shops fits in perfectly with the other locally-owned shops and boutiques in the nabe, close to cranes and the Metro, as new developments compete for air space in the booming Woodmont Triangle. The air in Curtis Draper is heavy with the sweet scent of rolled cigars. For those yearning for a drink with a smoke, bring your own beer, whiskey, or other libation. Just make sure to bring some to share with others since the communal way is the only way. Once a few new friends are made, here are some properties to rest up for another round. Cheers.

It's not often one sees this price point in tony Bethesda. But you get what you pay for, and it ain't more than a 1 bedroom, 1 bath condo. It's got the basics, so it's great for starting out. But consider the $510 monthly HOA dues before making the leap.

2. $749,900

No one puts baby in a corner. Unless she's in a corner unit. With a balcony. The 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath condo comes with two parking spaces and plenty of room for the buyer and some little ones. HOA dues run just south of $1000 per month.

Classy, sophisticated, and kind of manly. Just like a cigar bar. The 2 bedroom, 2 bath "stylish corner unit" condo is in the town's "only full-service building". Featuring two walk-in closets for all the stylish clothes one can handle, the unit has a kitchen just made the be gawked at. Turn on those Viking appliances and get that steak cooking.

It's time to bring the abode down to Earth even as the prices reach for the sky. The first house on the map comes with a sweet offer: a seven night resort or cruise. The 1928 cottage has been on the market for two months, and the "seller is serious" to find a taker. New home. New tan. Sounds like a plan.

5. $1,550,000

Totes classic on the outside. Totes modern on the inside. The newly constructed home may appear regular sized from the front, but it's hiding more than 5,400 sq.ft. of well-designed space. With an extensive list of built-ins, features, and amenities, there's no stone front porch, second-floor laundry, or slab of granite left unthought of.

6. $3,995,000

And just for a taste of something really expensive, here's a...wait, it's just a lot. This prime spot is for an investor who wants to create an ode to his ego after hitting up the cigar bar by maybe building condos "in the heart of Bethesda". Heck, the future buyer can build up to 50,000 sq.ft. of something meaning that's a lot of something. The specs do look nice.
