Sited on a corner lot in the coveted McAuley Park neighborhood, this custom, painted brick home was built by Bell Builders in 2002. Perfectly suited to elegant indoor/outdoor entertaining, as well as comfortable family living, this home was recently renovated and upgraded throughout by the current owners – all freshly painted and refinished! Upgrades include renovated bathrooms throughout, new LED recessed lighting, designer light fixtures and window treatments, new built ins and HVAC. This graciously-scaled home features a first floor owner's suite, dedicated home office and exercise/bonus room to create a desirable and flexible floor plan. Enjoy privacy and views of the rear garden from a huge, covered balcony that overlooks a lot that can easily accommodate a pool. The newly landscaped and terraced front walk leads to a handsome covered portico and large foyer/receiving room. The gracious Living Room and Dining Room are joined by a two-sided gas fireplace and are flooded with natural light. Gourmet kitchen is adjoined by breakfast and family rooms on one side and a flagstone mudroom with command center and informal powder room on the other. Family room with vaulted ceilings, oversized gas fireplace with stone hearth, and French doors is a show stopper! Lower Level is fully walk out with second family room, recreation space, bedroom and full bath. Two huge storage areas complete the lower level. Upstairs are three additional bedrooms (all en suite) along with a fully dedicated home office/den, as well as an oversized exercise/bonus room that could easily serve as a sixth bedroom. This turn-key home is located in close-in Potomac with easy access to Downtown Bethesda, DC, 495 and area schools.
