Lans-Merrick might be a good compromise for you. It's quieter but still very convenient.

Default Clarification

I'm not sure I used the right word when I said 'quiet', although I certaintly don't want frat boy parties or ambulance sirens all night long... I think what I meant to express was simply that I enjoy being outside at night and not even being able to see another building. I obviously! am going to give that up to move to Lexington but I guess I just feel that I'd like to go 'all in'... I mean, go from the country to the city proper. The Lansdowne area seems nice and all, and I know it's just a short car ride into downtown, but my gut tells me to just go ahead and move right into walking distance of the downtown area.... Does that make sense? Thoughts?

Well, if you have it in the budget, go ahead for Ashland Park. The other areas you mentioned - Hollywood and those - are not enough-different to make a difference, unless you just happen to see a house there that you love....kwim?

The one that was a little different was Lans-Merrick, which has a decidedly more suburban feel.

I personally would go for Ashland Park.... I'm just trying not to give my personal preferences too much weight. Trying to be fair and all.... LOL

What realtors don't tell you about the above mentioned portfolio that sends listings to you via e-mail is that it is a feature available to EVERY realtor that is a member of LBAR, so that is not a unique feature. If you are wanting Ashland Park, Chevy Chase, or anywhere near that area, I would use a Turf Town agent. A lot of the houses down there seem to be sold by Turf Town agents. Find one that has been in several houses in whichever area you choose. In today's market you don't want to overpay. Using somebody that really knows the area will be your best option. BTW, I am NOT with Turf Town, so this isn't a round about way to get you to contact me!

Another area you might consider is Lakeview. This comprises the streets that are off of Lakeshore (which runs in front of Henry Clay High School). The lots tend to be 1/3 to 1/2 acres and it is in Cassidy/Morton/HC school district. A lot of families are moving into this area and are updating the houses. You can get a real bargain if you are willing to buy a fixer upper. Even if you buy one that has been updated though it will still be much less expensive than Ashland Park and you will be more likely to find a 4 bedroom house.

If you do settle on Ashland Park I second the recommendation of using a Turf Town realtor. Mina Mattone and Rick Queen do most of the business in the area and know it like the back of their hands.
