You'll drive up to a secluded motorcourt with easy access to the front porch and entry to the home. Your Master Suite, with 3 exposures to the world outside, will motivate you to do something satisfying each and everyday.

The Seven Locks is exactly what you been waiting for:: a new home with single level living, close-in, adjacent walking trails, the Potomac River and the most delicious bistros & deli. Does Bethesda Living Get Any Better? We think Not!
