Rarely-available 7-bed, 5.5-bath historic brick front Tudor with detached 4-car garage on one of the most sought-after streets in DC! Ideally-situated in the heart of Chevy Chase, this home provides the best of both worlds with a bucolic setting on a wide tree-lined street, yet just steps to Friendship Heights metro and all of the dining, shopping and nightlife that the city has to offer. Built in 1925, this stately home combines historic charm with modern updates throughout, boasts over 5400 total square feet, and is situated on a large picture-perfect corner lot with professional landscaping and a storybook patio with garden. Enter to the grand foyer and be welcomed with custom wood trim, opulent chandeliers and beautiful hardwood floors throughout. The main level is an entertainer's dream - featuring a formal dining room off the kitchen, a library, a conveniently-located powder room plus a formal living room and adjacent sunroom that share a cozy two-sided gas fireplace adorned with a custom carved wood mantle. The centerpiece of the main level is the gourmet kitchen with timeless white cabinetry, stone countertops, large island, high-end stainless steel appliances including Viking stove and Sub-Zero refrigerator, butler's pantry, and eat-in breakfast area with views of the garden, perfect for enjoying a morning coffee or a good book. When ready to relax, head to the second level owner's bedroom suite featuring hardwood floors, a walk-in closet with separate dressing room and an ensuite bath with tiled shower/tub combo. The attached bonus room with peaceful views of the mature trees is ideally-located to serve as an in-home office, nursery or reading nook. A secondary bedroom suite with ensuite bath is available for long-term guests, in-laws or au pair. Three additional bedrooms and a 3rd full bath complete this 5-bed, 3-bath second level. The finished attic provides a versatile layout with 2 additional bedrooms, full bath and extra storage but can be easily organized into a single large kids' toy room, second office, gym, music or art studio. The fully-finished walk-out basement with recessed lighting boasts plenty of space for a theater room with an adjacent kitchenette for hosting a memorable movie night-in or as a potential apartment rental with full bath, laundry, extra storage and separate exterior entrance. Looking to de-stress after a long day? Step outside the rear of the home and let your mind wander in the serene rear garden. The fully-fenced rear yard is delightfully ornamented with bistro lights, stone patio, koi pond, fire pit, and grilling station. When looking to unwind, head around the corner of the home to the bubbling jacuzzi complete with privacy curtains for a tranquil night under the stars. The massive 4-car detached garage in the rear offers all of the space you'll ever need for multiple vehicles, workshop and additional storage. Plenty of street parking available for guests as well. Recent upgrades include new paint (2023), slate patio (2011), fire pit (2013), water treatment system (2015), jacuzzi (2015), gas logs (2017), and vent hood (2017). Vermont Slate roof inspected Aug 2023 and confirmed to be in great condition (report available). Don't miss this gem of a home!
