Open Saturday, April 3rd from 1 to 3 p.m.. This picture perfect Colonial in desirable Chevy Chase Village is calling you home. Improvements galore and approximately 4,250 square feet of living space come together in a stunning four-level package. Step through the glorious entryway and witness classic touches such as crown molding, wainscoting and gleaming hardwood floors that glow under natural light from oversized windows. The living room features a wood-burning fireplace; there’s also a sunroom/office with plantation shutters, a formal dining room with French doors, a powder room and a large family room that is open to the kitchen and breakfast area.
Completely gutted and redone in 2013, the Chef’s kitchen is a fabulous place to create meals with a Viking 6-burner gas cooktop, double wall oven, a warming drawer, microwave, SubZero fridge and wine cooler, Miele dishwasher, honed black granite and Taj Mahal quartzite countertops, and instant hot water. A butler’s pantry and plenty of cupboards add to the convenience. You can enjoy breakfast by the sunny window bay or step out to a glorious Brazilian mahogany deck with a gas grill plumbed from the house. The family room with its soaring cathedral ceiling and skylight also has French doors leading to the deck.
The home has six bedrooms, plus three full and two half bathrooms that have all been remodeled by CASE Architects. An incredible owner’s suite features a giant walk-in closet and a 24-foot-long bath with heated porcelain tile floors, granite countertops, Hansgrohe fixtures, a deep-soaking tub, and a huge walk-in steam sauna/shower with two fixed shower heads, two flexible shower heads, and 6 body sprays. There are two more bedrooms at this level along with a full bath with heated marble floor and frameless shower. The top level offers three more bedrooms, a walk-in closet, and a delightful vintage-style full bath with heated marble floor. More living options are at the finished lower level, with a rec room, a full bar, a laundry room and even a climate-controlled wine cellar!
Beautiful landscaping and lighting add to the appeal, with a manicured front lawn and a fully fenced backyard with electric/magnetic gate. The giant back deck overlooks a lush and magical yard with garden, shrubs, trees and a brick patio. A three-car brick garage is accessible from the rear alleyway. The house sits behind a mature privacy hedge and just a short stroll to restaurants, shops, the park and metro. Many extras include whole-house water filtration with UV filtration, air filtration, new plumbing and upgraded electric panels. Windows have been refreshed by Anderson over a ten-year period.
The handsome house at 5604 Western Avenue is in the highly sought-after Chevy Chase Village, and right across the street from Washington, DC. Quite simply, this is a wonderful neighborhood and the kind of place where you’ll see bicycles, flawless green lawns and lemonade stands in the summer.
Founded in 1890 as a streetcar suburb, Chevy Chase Village was later incorporated as its own township. The historic community has its own Village Hall and municipal government services. Enjoy the services of the Village from private security to mail collection while you’re away! There’s even a Village rec center that’s you’re able to rent for your own gatherings, and where community events like playgroups and exercise classes are held. With a small-town feel and quaint brick sidewalks, the highly walkable neighborhood is close to movies, bakeries, restaurants, Whole Foods and the Red Line Metro. The Chevy Chase Recreation Center is less than a block away, nestled into a delightful greenspace with a splash park, playground, tennis and basketball courts, baseball diamond, and a dog park.
For all of its local charm, the neighborhood is also convenient to everything the greater DC Metro area has to offer. Downtown Washington is about a ten-minute drive, while Friendship Village, the Chevy Chase Club and Bethesda’s shopping row are even closer. Connecticut Avenue is a few blocks east and Wisconsin Avenue an equal distance west. Schools in Montgomery County are also highly regarded. In short, this is just a wonderful place to live.
