This Colonial is in Garrett Park, a charming town with its own post office, farmers market, and town hall. It has a finished basement, a dining-room fireplace, and a back-yard deck surrounded by tall trees. It’s about a mile from the Red Line’s Grosvenor-Strathmore Metro. Offered as a short sale, the price is well below the $639,000 tax assessment. The house went under contract shortly before press time.
