OFFERS IF ANY DUE 5 PM ON MONDAY FEBRUARY 22. The quintessential Chevy Chase home, this classic colonial is close to so many urban amenities but sited on a premium, oversized lot enhanced with beautiful landscaping. The mature landscaping includes vibrant azaleas, lilac, cherry and dogwood trees, crape myrtles and a magnolia. Just steps to an entry to Rock Creek Park, this 5 bedroom, 3.5 bath "town and country" residence enjoys both views of wildlife and walkability to restaurants and shops lining Connecticut Avenue.
Appointed with timeless architectural elements, the interior features hardwood floors on the main and upper levels, lovely moldings, arched passageways and built-ins. The main level has a wonderful floorplan for living and entertaining, with a beautiful living room with a fireplace, a separate dining room, chef's kitchen and a sunroom. The sunroom has an exposed brick wall, brand new carpeting and an incredible picture window that takes in stunning views of the rear yard. The kitchen features a Wolf range, prep sink, wine refrigerator, custom tile backsplash and a peninsula with seating. The current owners used a main-level bedroom as a study, complete with built-in bookcases and adjoining a powder room.
Upstairs there are 3 spacious bedrooms, all with ample space for furnishings AND closet space. The owner's suite offers a large bedroom area and a luxurious spa-like bath with custom finishes and a private water closet. The bath features heated floors and a rain shower. And for the fashionista, you won't find a better (or larger) walk-in closet! Two additional bedrooms on the upper level share a full bath.
The walkout lower level offers all the flexibility for recreation, leisure and guests! The large family room includes a wood burning fireplace and opens to the backyard. There is a bedroom and full bath as well, ideal for in-laws and overnight company...or the college student who is studying at home. The laundry and utilities are housed separately.
Enclosed by a 6-foot fence, the oversized backyard is a rare find in a home so close to town. Truly an oasis in the city, the deep, fully fenced lawn has space for play, gardens....there's even a separately fenced, heated and air-conditioned dog house. Should the new owner want to expand the footprint of the home and/or add a pool, there will be more than enough lawn area left to enjoy!
There is an attic with lots of storage space and an attached outdoor storage room that is perfect for lawn equipment, bikes and sports gear. There's also a one-car garage and plenty of driveway parking. The current owners loved having nature and the city at their doorstep. It has easy access to excellent schools, Brookville Market, and everything that Washington DC and the metro area offers. With a perfect blend of timeless style and modern amenities, this home offers a picture-perfect setting for urban living with every option for enjoying the beautiful outdoors as well!
