Location, Location, Location! Green, Green, Green! Charming 3 bedroom and 2.5 bathroom classic colonial brick home, with fenced backyard, is located in the Rock Creek Forest community directly across the street from Rock Creek Park, Meadowbrook Riding Stables, and the hiker-biker path, with captivating views. First floor includes an upgraded half bathroom, hardwood floors, contemporary kitchen featuring new stainless steel appliances (gas range/oven, microwave, refrigerator, dishwasher, garbage disposal), peninsula kitchen counter that extends into luxurious, spacious breakfast/family room with vaulted ceilings, laminate and carpeted flooring, abundant daylight from picture windows with backyard view. Second floor features 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. The stylish master bedroom extends into master bathroom with large stand up tiled shower and Corian granite-look sink top, second bathroom has the original black & white tile with updated Corian sinktop, and a shower bathtub. Utility basement includes new clothes washer and dryer, plenty of storage space, and features a drainage system installed in May 2019. Central air-conditioning and separate radiant heating systems each have programmable controls to "set and forget" your preferred temperature range. Solar panels provide 70% of the monthly electric supply--most months the electric bill is just $8.50--the Pepco minimum! Tankless water heater provides unlimited hot water on demand. Automatic whole house backup generator provides immediate power during utility outages. Please take into account the value of the long-term savings this house provides financially and environmentally. We've installed multiple renewable energy systems to make the house as "green" as possible (environmentally and financially). Thirty wholly-owned solar panels generate at least 70% of our average annual electrical consumption and convey to the new owner. When the solar panels produce extra kilowatt hours, Solar Renewable Energy Credits (SRECs) are sold to the utility company to provide additional savings to the homeowner. A tankless water heater provides unlimited hot water while saving on natural gas consumption. Generac whole house generator provides peace of mind and uninterrupted electrical power supply. Desert Dry basement foundation waterproofing guarantees a healthy and dry house foundation. There's a 1-car garage with additional storage and plenty of street parking. Just one block from East-West Highway commuter bus routes and within 2 miles from Bethesda and Silver Spring Metro stations. Walking distance to schools, playgrounds, tennis, basketball, grocery store, shopping, dining, health club, and houses of worship. This house was built in 1942 with impeccable detail, as one of the five original model homes for the subdivision! Basement can be easily finished and one-story addition can be built upon to add additional rooms on the second story. The newly-constructed Rock Creek Forest Elementary is walking distance from the home. Silver Creek Middle School is also newly built and feeds into Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School. These are all highly rated Montgomery County Public Schools. It's remarkable to be just 7 miles from the Washington monuments and museums while having Rock Creek Park and Meadowbrook Riding Stables directly across the street. Public transportation, including the future Purple Line, is nearby but the neighborhood is tranquil. Optional membership to Rock Creek Pool (with tennis, volleyball, and basketball courts) available to transfer to new owners, avoiding the 9-10 year wait for Equity Membership. This home is nestled in the Rock Creek Forest neighborhood, an incredibly caring community.
