Every house tells a story. What would the neighbors tell you about this one?
The old-timers recall when Jack Valenti briefly lived here and President Johnson once came to dinner. Others remember it as the home of the first defector from behind the Iron Curtain during the Cold War. Whatever the memories, this traditional center hall colonial in the heart of Kent is a gem waiting for its next chapter to be written.
With an easy flow, 4 upper level bedrooms, 3.5 baths, a lower level au pair suite with separate entrance, two fireplaces and an eat-in kitchen this lovely home offers gracious space for comfortable movie nights or cocktail parties for friends. Situated on a sizable lot in short walking distance to the Key School, Starbucks, the post office, a veterinarian, and nearly a dozen great neighborhood restaurants, you have everything you need right here in one of DC’s finest neighborhoods.
The full attic gives you enviable storage space and lots of potential for expansion. The rear deck offers great outdoor space overlooking a rose garden that blossoms beautifully in the spring, and the long driveway offers ample parking space for guests. Outdoor enthusiasts will love the easy access to both the Capital Crescent Trail and the C&O Canal, not to mention beautiful walks in Battery Kemble Park and hours of fun at the Palisades Recreation Center.
This agent owned house has it all and is priced to get you into this sought after neighborhood and school district.
