I personally contracted to purchase a dogeared, faded antebellum colonial mansion commanding approximately 1.5 acres in the heart of Alta Vista, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Bethesda.  Crowell and Baker, a long established and highly respected builder/develper subsequently stepped in as general partners to fully realize the potential project.  Under their tutelage and auspices, I contracted to subdivide and purchase the ample rear yards of three adjacent neighbors and subseuqently assembled land area ample to develop in infill community of twelve new homes.  These homes sold far in excess of neighborhood comparables, raising the bar yet again for a number of builders to develop projects large and small in this neighborhood.
