Lot Size:0.16 Acres
Tucked away on a three-block street in Washington's Chevy Chase neighborhood, 3721 Huntington was designed by renowned Austrian-American architect Leopold Boeckl to be his personal residence. After ascending the front steps, flanked on either side by handsome landscaping, you'll enter the home through multi-dimensional, timber-batten double doors. Inside, you'll find the original, spacious floorplan intact, with clean lines, large windows, and seamless transitions at every turn. The residence features 4 beds/4 baths, with 3 of the bedrooms conveniently located on the main level of the home. Beyond the foyer, an inviting living room awaits with quintessentially mid-century modern (MCM) high-ceilings and a wall of glass windows. Perfect for entertaining and hosting guests, double-doors open from the living room to a large patio surrounded by mature woods. Attached to the living room is a generously-sized formal dining room and kitchen. The home offers over 2,870 sq ft of custom design work, including a built-in floor-to-ceiling shelving unit equipped with an original, custom ladder designed by Leopold Boeckl himself. Perfect for an in-home library, this unit is a smart artistic detail reinforcing the home's MCM appeal. Within the kitchen, another original installation that remains intact is the 1965 globe illuminating the private kitchen. Beyond the kitchen along the south-facing wall of the home, you'll find three bedrooms, one of which features its own bathroom ensuite. The remaining two bedrooms are adjoined, jack-and-jill style, by a full bath; hand painted light shades adorn these playful rooms. Finally, the primary suite features an office/sitting room, ensuite bathroom, and the backdrop of this home's private, fenced wooded backyard. Another set of double-glass doors provide a second access to the extended patio. The spacious lower level provides the 4th bedroom/bathroom, with an additional exterior entrance that connects conveniently to the backyard space. A full laundry room, custom built-in workshop wall, are found on the lower level. Chevy Chase is beloved for providing the feel of a suburban community in the heart of the city. With an eclectic mix of dining and retail within walking distance, there is no shortage of entertainment options for your nights and weekends. Neighborhood favorites include Broad Branch Market, The Avalon, Bread & Chocolate and Parthenon to the north and Comet Ping Pong, Buck's Fishing and Camping, The Little Red Fox, and Politics and Prose to the south. Plenty of surrounding green spaces, including Fort Reno with its summer concerts, offer outdoor escapes. Commuters will appreciate the close proximity to the Friendship Heights metro, Connecticut Avenue, or metrobus one block away, as well as the entrance to Rock Creek Park from Nebraska Avenue and Broad Branch Road. All offers if any due Wednesday 11/3 at 3pm.
