3550 Springland Lane represents a rare opportunity to restore and renovate an iconic, picturesque 1937 home in sought-after Cleveland Park, or to start from scratch and create a new residence on a scenic, very private lot of approximately 18,000 square feet.
The home is situated at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac. Its romantic façade, with large covered front porches on two levels, recalls the grace of another era, and its lush wooded setting can be enjoyed from screened and open porches across the back. The setting on almost half an acre offers privacy and ample opportunity for gardening and outdoor recreation.
In its current configuration, the first floor of the home has generous living and dining rooms, a powder room, and an expanded eat-in kitchen with wonderful views over the deep rear garden. A spacious master suite plus two additional bedrooms and a sunroom are on the second floor, and a covered balcony across the front offers a perfect spot to congregate in nice weather. Two additional bedrooms and full bath are on the third floor. The lower level has a large recreation room, multiple storage areas, a craft room and laundry room. There is a private unpaved driveway and one-car garage.
The location in Cleveland Park is ideal – within walking distance of both the Cleveland Park and Van Ness metros and close to schools, parks, shops, restaurants and local businesses. A pathway at the far end of the property takes one to the Hearst playing fields, tennis courts, playground and soon-to-be completed public swimming pool. From there it is just a short stroll to the Giant and to Starbucks and the other offerings at Cathedral Commons.
