New $36M Aquatic & Recreation Complex Opening Soon in Brandywine, MD

The county is building a new multi-use recreational facility in Brandywine, MD which is expected to open by the end of summer.  At a cost of more than $36 million, The Southern Area Aquatic and Recreation Complex (SAARC) is the first Multi-Generational Community Recreational Center in Prince George’s County.

The 75,000 square-foot project includes a huge swimming pool, a gymnasium, a fitness room and flexible programmable space. It is being constructed on property owned by The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC) – Brandywine Area Park – located just north of the intersection of Missouri Avenue and Brandywine Road. Future phases of parkland development may include additional site amenities, an expansion of the natatorium, and additional recreation space to accommodate performing arts and ceramic arts.

Personally, I'm looking forward to participating in a Yoga class and water aerobics once this place opens!

Clinton, MD Homes for Sale

This past weekend's home showings took my Buyer and I to Clinton, MD to see several properties.  This 4 bedroom, Split Foyer style home was completely renovated and listed for $299,900.  The interior of the home showed well.  However, my Buyer didn't like the back yard.  She was completely "spooked out".  It had a creek running through the property and this old ugly barn/shed.  The back yard also had weeds and many soft spots.  Experience tells me there are drainage issues in that yard and the potential for snakes to crawl around.  Well, that was definitely a show stopper!  Our search for a home continues...…...
