"AS IS" OFFERS NOV 5th by 4PM. Pre-inspections welcome

Built in 1933 on one of the larger lots in sought after Chevy Chase DC, 3608 Rittenhouse Street NW is now available for the first time in 50 years. Rittenhouse is one of a few wide and beautifully tree-lined streets in this highly desirable neighborhood, noted for distinguished and elegant homes and an easy walk to Chevy Chase Circle, Friendship Heights, shops, restaurants & Metro.

This slate roofed 5 bedroom, 3.5 bath Tudor is situated perfectly on nearly acre with alley access on one side. A well-maintained front lawn offers a warm invitation to a formal entrance and wraparound front and side porches. Approaching from the alley you'll find ample parking and an enclosed hardscape courtyard with a side entrance directly into the mudroom and kitchen. The enclosed rear yard is perfect for hosting parties, with a large pool, patio, covered terrace and sizable fenced-in area for many outdoor activities. The impressive rear lot looks up at the all four levels of the home. Walk directly into the spacious lower level or take the spiral staircase from the terrace to the upper deck and kitchen/breakfast area. The house flows very well with its many access points.

Standing in the main floor front foyer, you are flanked by a living room with fireplace, a den/study and separate dining room. The central hall leads to the sunny breakfast room and kitchen with access to a two-car garage (off alley), the side courtyard and rear yard. There is a view of the backyard and pool from the rear windows of every level of this stately home. (And be sure not to miss the view from the very top floor!)

The top two levels offer a primary bedroom suite with a sunken walk-in closet and three more bedrooms, including one on the top floor with a large cedar closet). The walk-out lower level boasts a huge entertainment area with fireplace and an extra large bedroom perfect for guests, as a 6th bedroom playroom/crafting room, a full bath and hidden storage area with exterior access.

Details not to be overlooked in this classic gem are copper gutters and down spouts, hardwood and marble tile floors, built in bookcases, an original work bench with storage, a new four ton central A/C unit, radiator heat, wrought iron fencing, stone columns and six parking spaces!
