Get ready to open a timeless treasure box with three levels of living space backing to Rock Creek Park. Built in 1913, this Chevy Chase stone farmhouse has been lovingly preserved and upgraded throughout, with gleaming vintage hardwood floors, oversized custom windows, and not one but two full kitchens. There are covered country porches in front and back, a detached garage, and beautiful front, side and back yards that are a gardener’s dream. The architectural details are truly charming, with so many rooms, nooks, alcoves, and other magical places to explore. The main kitchen with its exposed beams, granite counters, upscale appliances, and custom cabinetry is an absolute joy to cook in. The adjacent dining room has full-height glass and wood built-ins, and a huge stone chimney with a Mansfield wood stove insert, helping to keep the whole house warm and cozy during the winter. At the very top is a large owners’ bedroom, a lovely hallway bath with black and white subway tile flooring, and a spacious front room with sunny exposures on two sides and a Euro-style kitchen set unobtrusively along one wall. It’s a terrific added convenience, but the room could also be returned to its original fourth bedroom status if you so choose. There are plenty of extras, such as a charming mudroom, California Closets, LG washer/dryer, hanging cage lights with Edison bulbs, and updated baths. Private outdoor spaces are also an integral part of the allure with a brand-new front porch roof, a reconditioned metal rear porch roof, wooden picket fences, a big patio, blooming bushes, a shed, and a detached garage equipped for a level 2 EC charger. The property is steps from Rock Creek Trail, and across the street from Woodend Sanctuary and Mansion, a 40-acre nature retreat run by the Audubon Naturalist Society. Yet for all the bucolic splendor, you’ll still be conveniently close to the DC line and next-door to the explosion of restaurants and shops that is downtown Bethesda. Owner will also consider a lease for $4,200/month that includes lawn care. How easy is that?
