Spacious, updated and expanded all-brick rambler on picturesque 1/3 acre lot in sought-after Chevy Chase View. With manicured front and rear yards, mature trees and charming front porch, this classic home offers warm curb appeal, nearly 3,300 square feet of living space, and close proximity to everywhere you want or need to be.
The main entry opens to a large foyer with views to the rear living room, where large windows offer vistas of the beautiful backyard – large, landscaped and bordered by mature trees. The living room is large and light-filled. French doors from the adjoining formal dining area lead to the upper deck, where you can unwind with a glass of wine while enjoying the beautiful landscape.
Off the foyer is an expansive kitchen for the serious cook – with center island, warm maple cabinets, endless counter and storage space, a desk area and breakfast nook with charming bay window. Open to the kitchen is a wonderful family room with cathedral ceilings, gas fireplace and built-in cabinets and bookshelves offering a warm space to relax with friends and family or curl up with a book. French doors lead from the family room to an expansive deck. Also off the family room is a mudroom accessed from the driveway – with hooks, a double-door closet and built-in cubbies for coats and shoes.
The right wing of the home accommodates three bedrooms, including a spacious main bedroom with an updated en-suite bath and two additional bedrooms that each have ample closet space and share a recently renovated hall bath. Pull-down stairs from the hallway lead to a full, floored, stand-up attic, with expansive space for storage. Gleaming hardwoods and recessed lights warm the first level.
Stairs down from the foyer lead to the fully above-ground lower level with a delightfully sun-filled and bright rec/family room that is perfect for a play area or family movie nights. Double patio doors provide a private entrance and walkout to the lower patio. Along the hallway, past a full bath and closet, is a large room with windows on two sides – ideal for a home office or large bedroom. Large windows on both levels fill the home with natural light.
Also on the lower level is the laundry room with tons of storage, a utility room and a large unfinished space with an exit to the backyard which can be finished to suit your needs: a workout room, play room, media room, office or another private guest suite. The possibilities are endless.
All this is just minutes from neighborhood schools, Rock Creek Park, Antique Row, the Marc Train and the vibrant shopping and dining areas of downtown Kensington, Chevy Chase and Bethesda. Welcome home!
