Calling Edgemoor Home

Edgemoor is one of the toniest and most sought after neighborhoods in all of the DC Metropolitan Area...and for good reason. Its estate-sized homes start in the multi-million dollar range and reach as high as $10MM. The neighborhood boasts some of the most stunning homes in the region. Architect Glen Fong aptly described the incredible architectural diversity in the neighborhood for a Washington Post profile, "The breadth of architectural styles makes Edgemoor almost like a textbook of great architecture...everything from Mediterranean to English and French cottage to extraordinary contemporaries.” Edgemoor's enviable location just west of downtown Bethesda makes it one of the most accessible neighborhoods in the area allowing residents to take full advantage of extraordinary high end development that Bethesda has experienced over the past few decades- restaurants, high-end retail, state of the art fitness facilities and organic farmer's markets are all at its fingertips. The neighborhood also hosts the Edgemoor Club, a private swim and tennis club founded in the 1920's, and has an active citizen's association that sponsors annual holiday celebrations as well as the Edgemoor Classic 5k road race.

 

History

Edgemoor's existence as a neighborhood dates back to 1912, when banker and developer Walter Tuckerman bought 183 acres of the fallow Watkins Farm. He created 250 lots for "“those of refined taste, demanding a better social atmosphere than surrounds the usual suburb, a more picturesque environment for an all-year-round home out of the city, without the expense and responsibility of a large estate.” The neighborhood was originally named Edgewood but was later renamed "Edgemoor" after the mail was frequently misdelivered to a town of the same name near Baltimore. The private Edgemoor Club, which is still operating today, incorporated in 1922 and was one of the area's top tennis facilities even boasting a former world #1 player, Pauline Betz Addie, as its club pro in the 1950s.

 

Architecture

Homes in Edgemoor run from around 4,000 sq ft to over 10,000 square foot estates. The architectural variability and quality found in the neighborhood is far reaching, from Colonial and Tudor Revival to extraordinary Mediterranean, French, English countryside inspired residences as well as stunning contemporaries designed by some of the region's top architects.
