Quarry Springs Accepts First Residents

The quarry-turned-luxury condominium development on River Road finally has its first residents.

They moved into Quarry Springs at 8101 River Road in Bethesda over the weekend, a major milestone for the project that has been in the works for more than 10 years.

Developer 1788 Holdings took over the project a few years ago and finished construction of the first two buildings this fall. Prices range from $1.5 million to $4 million for the 50 first-phase units, which feature floor plans ranging from 2,200 to 4,500 square feet.

The development is on the site of the former Stoneyhurst Quarries, just west of the Capital Beltway.

The 13-acre community will include walking trails, a three-tiered waterfall with a stream and a clubhouse with a fitness center, yoga studio, spa, library and pool at the site’s entrance.


Residents won’t have to venture outside to access the clubhouse. A private underground tunnel connects condo owners to the clubhouse.

Crown Town Home Model Wins ‘Home of the Year’ Award

The four-story, 5,000-square-foot Georgetown town home model featured prominently at the new Crown community in Gaithersburg was named “Home of the Year” earlier this month at the Great American Living Awards.

Frederick-based Wormald Homes designed the town home specifically for Crown, the 182-acre development off I-270 and Sam Eig Highway that is built around the mixed-use Downtown Crown retail and restaurant area.


The award-winning town home model also has about 800 square feet of outdoor terraces, 8-foot-tall mahogany entrance doors and a grand owners’ suite. The town homes also have room for an elevator.
