Not your typical Bethesda colonial, this wonderfully renovated home retains all of its original character while offering the best of today’s amenities at every turn. Hardwood flooring, exposed brick walls and arched passageways offer a glimpse of the timeless architectural features, while the gourmet chef’s kitchen, incredible owner’s suite, and newly renovated lower level provide every comfort for modern living. The floor plan features a living room with a wood-burning fireplace, a spacious separate dining room, and a fabulous kitchen that opens to the main-level family room and a screened porch. The kitchen is appointed with stainless steel appliances (including a warming drawer), granite counter surfaces and cherry cabinets. Corner and over-sized windows and French doors saturate the room with light. An inviting family room is adjacent, and opens to a deck. The main level also includes a powder room. Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths, including one in a classic black-and-white design. The owner’s suite, part of a 3-story addition, is incredible; with a dramatic vaulted ceiling, fabulous window arrays, a cedar walk-in closet, a private outdoor terrace, and a gas fireplace. The bath features a clawfoot tub, towel warmer and state-of-the-art shower. The walkout lower level includes a workshop/exercise space, the laundry/utility room and an expansive recreation room with brand new luxury flooring, deep set windows and doors to a stunning stone patio. The lower level includes another bedroom and a new full bath with gorgeous finishes. Step outside to a surround of tall trees and mature gardens, which create the perfect private setting for outdoor living and entertaining. Like a Norman Rockwell illustration, this home is located on a leafy street in the heart of Bethesda, and is moments from restaurants, shops and Metro. It has easy access to NIH and every commuting corridor into DC. Truly a perfect blend of classic craftsmanship with attention to modern function, this home offers every amenity for the in-town buyer looking for timeless turn-key living!
