Developer Douglas Jemal Sells in Bethesda

By: Mary Clare Glover

Scandal-plagued real-estate developer Douglas Jemal and his wife, Joyce, sold this five-bedroom, four-bathroom Colonial in Bethesda for $1.1 million. Within walking distance of downtown Bethesda, the house was featured in Better Homes and Gardens. Jemal, who’s credited with turning around DC’s Gallery Place neighborhood, was acquitted in October of bribery but found guilty of fraud and sentenced to probation.
