Welcome to 620 Watts Branch Parkway, a one-of-a-kind home in one of Potomac’s most convenient neighborhoods! This lovely home, built in the 1960s, had a significant expansion as well as renovations and a recent refresh done by the current owner.
Thoughtfully designed by Thomas Manion Architects, attention to detail was paramount to the renovations. The kitchen is truly gourmet in every sense! It includes custom-made solid-wood cabinetry and custom glass island, granite countertops, SubZero refrigerator, Thermador six-burner range and two Fisher-Paykel dishwasher drawers. Other expansions included adding square footage to the dining room and family room on the first level, a master bedroom suite on the upper level and a two-car garage on the lower level.
Clever touches and custom finishes give this home a luxury feel: solid wood handrails throughout, semi-opaque sliding glass doors in entry foyer and on lower level, solid wood built-in shelving in the living room and one bedroom, and brushed stainless steel railing system on the exterior, all add to the element of high design. Other upgrades include hardwood floors, solid hardwood front and interior doors, custom lighting, vaulted ceilings and fresh, neutral paint.
With four bedrooms on the upper level, there is plenty of room for everyone. The spacious master bedroom has an en suite bath with two sinks and separate tub and shower. Ample closet space with custom built-ins provides plenty of storage. The second bedroom (formerly the master) also has an en suite bath and a fantastic walk-in closet. It was recently refreshed with new paint, carpet and closet system. The two additional bedrooms share a hall bath.
The lower level has a large recreation room with a nook which is currently used as an artist's studio. This level also provides access to the spacious two-car garage and laundry facilities. Custom lighting, hidden storage and painted concrete floor give the space a crisp sense of organization.
The house is lovely and the yard is divine! Lovingly designed and fastidiously maintained by the owner, the yard is filled with well-established gardens, full of beautiful annuals and perennials. An in-ground irrigation system provides water to the beds, making watering effortless. Flagstone walkways and terrace provide a peaceful place to sit and enjoy the beautiful back yard. An additional terrace out front overlooks the neighborhood.
Recent upgrades to the exterior of the home include custom railing, new driveway, new roof and gutters with leaf guards, low-maintenance Hardiplank siding and fresh paint on the shutters and exterior trim. The yard is fully enclosed with cedar fencing.
Sited on a large corner lot, this home enjoys the convenience of easy access to Falls Road, I-270 and dining and shopping nearby at Park Potomac, Rockville Town Center and Fallsgrove. Neighborhood trails, pool, playground and parks provide space for recreation. Wooten/Frost/Fallsmead Schools. No HOA.
