    NORTH BETHESDA, Md.April 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — After an invitation-only VIP and Grand Opening event turned out over a hundred highly qualified and interested buyers, Symphony Park at Strathmore became Montgomery County‘s fastest-selling luxury new home community. This unique community, being built by Michael Harris Homes, features exquisite Brownstones adjoining the grounds of The Music Center at Strathmore and delivers an unprecedented lifestyle of culture and elegance. Initial sales have been brisk with 11 contracts? and over $13 million in total sales volume ? in just 30 days! ?The Brownstones at Symphony Park are priced from the mid $900‘s and will be ready for move in later this year.

    Symphony Park at Strathmore has been hailed as the most significant new residential development in Montgomery County. ?Taking its design cues from the most elite neighborhoods in Manhattan and London, Symphony Park’s elegant Brownstones are just steps away from Metro’s red line at the Grosvenor-Strathmore station. ?Bethesda’s best shopping and dining surround Symphony Park and can be reached within minutes. ?The community’s park-like setting with acres of new landscaping features brick pathways that lead to quiet conversation spots, tranquil gardens, groves of trees, and an inviting amphitheater for live performances. Its homes boast premium features including Viking? kitchen appliances, Brookhaven by Wood-Mode? cabinetry, and bath fittings by renowned Waterworks?. ?Because of its unprecedented partnership with Strathmore, Symphony Park residents will enjoy preferred access to performances, behind-the-scenes invitations to meet the artists, events and an array of classes in art, yoga and dance.

    The rapid rate of sales at Symphony Park reflects the strength of the project’s location, design and amenities. “We felt confident Symphony Park would have strong sales simply because of its unique position in the marketplace, but we are pleasantly surprised at how successful our Grand Opening has been. Eleven homes in less than a month is an extraordinary accomplishment in this market. ?It demonstrates that there are buyers who are waiting for the right opportunity,” remarks Harris Schwalb from Michael Harris Homes, the community’s home builder.
