6 Beds | 5/2 Baths | 4,542 Sq Ft | 1920 Year Built
A truly once in a generation opportunity to capture one of Chevy Chase~s grande dames! This 1920 colonial has been fully restored to thoughtfully retain all of the exceptional beauty of the original architecture blended with luxury finishes and modern living. The details and unique features abound making this a must-see property! The exterior alone will take your breath away with the Gatsbyesque wrap around porch begging you to sit with an iced tea on a warm summer~s day. Main level features a massive entry foyer with original antique banisters, dental molding, soaring ceilings (on all levels) and stunning hardwood floors (all three upper levels). The formal living room features a rebuilt wood burning fireplace, recessed lighting, extended dental crown molding and fully operational original solid core pocket doors leading to the dining room. (even restored the hardware) The large dining room features gorgeous coffered ceilings and flows seamlessly into the open concept lifestyle between the gourmet kitchen and the sunroom. This area of the home is drenched in sunlight and is a constant reminder of the preferred Southern exposure. The expansive chef~s kitchen features a luxury Thermador appliance package with 6 burner range, recessed lighting, secondary stair access (great for the kids running down for pancakes), continuation of hardwood floors appropriate for the period, tons of high-quality cabinetry capped with a snow white quartz and accented with a tumbled ceramic herringbone tile backsplash. The upper level offers two very large bedrooms sharing a full designer bathroom with double vanity, a convenient laundry room, and an impeccable master suite. The master suite offers a walk-in closet, massive bathroom w/ rain shower enclosure, soaking tub, water closet with TOTO toilet (it has a remote) and designer finishes. Top floor is a versatile space with a one of a kind full bathroom, really cute bedroom and a large entertainment space or excellent office area. What makes this house even more unique is the expansive basement area. Not only are the ceilings nearly 9~, but a majority of the basement is above grade giving you full-size windows and excellent natural light. The space offers all the amenities one could ask for with a massive rec room (gym could easily be created here as well), a private bedroom (with full-size windows) and full bathroom, a secondary laundry facility and a separate au pair suite (has its own entrance) w/ kitchenette and full designer bath with a walk-in closet. If you make it outside of this masterpiece, you~ll find a .17 acre lot which has been thoughtfully regraded to create a large privately fenced green space in the rear with ample hardscape and still room for your garden! Additional amenities include one car detached garage, two storage sheds and much more!! All this history and excitement and a 90 Walk Score to boast! You have everything at your fingertips whether it be shops, grocer, restaurants, theater, metro, etc. Welcome home indeed!
