Designer details and finishes are found at every turn in this classic and timeless white brick colonial. Sited on a 1/4-acre grassy and deep lot in the sought-after neighborhood of Chevy Chase DC, this well maintained home has recently been renovated and is truly move-in ready.

A charming blue door beckons you inside this entertainer's dream with crown moldings, high ceilings, custom built-ins, bespoke window treatments, and on-trend lighting. The functional and pretty portico / mudroom leads into a gracious and welcoming foyer with gleaming hardwoods that open to the main floor's ideal and flexible floor plan -- a grand living room with a wood-burning fireplace, original mantle and custom wood built-in bookshelves with custom lighting -- that flows to a cheery, windowed play room or an ideal space for a family room overlooking the expansive and lush rear yard.

The formal dining room leads into the white chef's kitchen with stainless steel appliances and a breakfast table with seating and egress to the herb garden. The main floor office has two custom-crafted built-in desks, file drawers and bookshelves with library lighting, and a wallpapered powder room that delights. Up the stairs with a custom runner you arrive on the second floor landing; there is a large bedroom with two closets, another bedroom with its own private patio -- an ideal spot for star gazing or enjoying morning coffee -- a renovated hall bath with wallpaper and Carrara marble, and the private and light filled tree-top primary retreat with an en suite bath and a walk-in closet. The third floor has a carpeted bedroom and a bonus room currently used as a dreamy walk-in dressing room but can be re-envisioned as a bathroom, den or additional bedroom. The light-filled lower level has a nice-sized foyer that leads to supremely flexible space -- use as the fifth bedroom ideal for an au pair, guests or in laws -- or use that large space as a family or great room with the stone fireplace, ideal for movie night. The full bath was just renovated with a navy & marble vanity and warm brass accents; there is a thoughtfully designed laundry area with high-efficiency machines and folding station, a home gym zone, storage galore, and rear egress to a stone patio for entertaining and al fresco dining under the twinkly string lights. There is also easy interior access to the attached 1-car garage and EV-car charger hook up from the lower level.

Located in upper northwest DC in the welcoming and leafy neighborhood of Chevy Chase DC just a quick 25-minute trip downtown with easy access to commuter routes -- I-495, 16th Street, Connecticut Avenue, and Beach Drive. Bucolic with tree-lined lanes, the community abuts Rock Creek Park, a scenic oasis of wildlife and natural landscapes with extensive walking and biking paths. Uniquely located close to trailheads and parks in both Maryland and DC: Shepherd Park, Candy Cane Park and Lafayette Park with numerous tennis and basketball courts, playgrounds, stables, and more. Close to the neighborhood gems like the Brookville Market and Broad Branch Market and boutiques, shopping, sidewalk dining, and all the conveniences of Friendship Heights, Connecticut Ave. corridor, Chevy Chase, and Bethesda. In bounds for blue ribbon Lafayette Elementary School, Deal Middle School and Jackson-Reed High School. Welcome Home!
