This handsome and elegant Chevy Chase residence, circa 1925, has been thoughtfully renovated and is beautifully sited on a wide and quiet, tree-lined street. With over 4,000 square feet in interior space on four finished levels with 5-6 bedrooms and 3.5 baths, this special home blends the architectural detailing and charm of the 1920’s with today’s conveniences and amenities. The first floor features a spacious entrance hall, sunlit by an exquisite Palladian window, large living room with extra conversation and sitting area, lovely light-filled library with two sets of French doors opening to a private balcony and side yard. The gracious dining room is perfect for festive Thanksgiving dinners and the sunny updated kitchen has a terrific breakfast area which leads to a family room. There are three bedrooms and two baths on the second level including a large owner’s suite with private bath. An additional room is located off the second bedroom and could be used as an office or fourth bedroom. The third floor is fully finished and makes for an ideal bedroom retreat or office. The finished lower level has a large recreation room, guest bedroom, full bath, laundry room and storage or gym room. The grounds are beautifully landscaped with ample room for kids and dogs to play. A large and very private patio is perfect for dining al fresco on warm summer evenings.
Ideally located, 5119 38th Street is within 1 mile of two red line metro stations (Tenley-AU and Friendship Heights) and within walking distance to Washington's best shopping, restaurants, parks and schools. Enjoy an evening out at one of the fine restaurants that dot Connecticut Avenue or book browse at the iconic Politics and Prose. This is the location you have been waiting for.
