Heart of Kenwood: 2/3 acre lot with an oasis of a back yard and show stopper construction. The back yard is like five yards in one. The courtyard; the heated pool; the grass lawn; the secret garden and a porch area. Each space is a great retreat from the drumbeat of the world. The backyard basically has to be seen to be believed. Over the years the owners have hosted many parties there. The courtyard can be tented for special events. The backyard permits dining or drinks in the courtyard, out by the pool, in the secret garden or on the porch. The house also has a lovely large front yard which provides a very quiet environment in the house and includes a number of cherry trees that form part of the Kenwood cheery tree umbrella on the streets in the neighborhood. Being a corner lot, the home has property on both Chamberlin Ave. and Kennedy Dr. The property on the Kennedy side is fenced and the land is elevated, providing great privacy in the backyard. The first floor has a large living room, a few steps down from the gracious entry hall. The room with nearly 12' ceilings has lots of wall space for art and there are two sitting areas. It has a large wood burning fire place for cozy nights. The room is a great place for entertaining, for relaxing in the evening, for family celebrations, for enjoying a good book. The foyer has a stone floor, chandelier, elegant sliding gate, and a view to the backyard courtyard with a door exiting to a small patio and stairs descending to the courtyard. The dining room is large, permitting great dinner parties, easily seating 14-16 people. There is a small library room, half bath and a pantry, a lovely updated chef's kitchen (with heated floors), and a large family room (with fireplace) to round out the first floor. The family room overlooks the pool and the courtyard and has French doors with steps down to the courtyard. The house was built with an elevator which goes from the basement to the second floor and has the original interior wall décor. A perfect restoration project for those with an interest. both indoors and outdoors. There are two sets of stairs, and the main staircase off of the foyer is particularly inviting for additional art. The second floor consists of a large primary bedroom suite including a sitting room (with fireplace), a study, primary bedroom, with two full baths and dressing rooms at opposite ends of the suite. There is a second bedroom with full bath on the second floor as well. It is easy to spend larges parts of days in the suite, which has great light too. The third floor has two bedrooms that share a bathroom and a large room now used as an exercise room (but could be used as an additional bedroom, playroom or art room). There are also two large cedar storage closets on the floor. The basement has a large family room (with fireplace) which is great for games, a pool table, seating area, tv, etc. The basement family room is spacious enough for watching tv, playing pool, and relaxing with friends. The basement also has a laundry room, a large storage area, an area with the mechanical equipment, a half bath and a door to the three car garage. Accessible through a separate staircase is an additional lower level pantry that could also be made into a wine cellar, with access to the boiler room as well as to the 3 car garage. The current owner also has a 1 year home warranty that will transfer to new owner. Kenwood is known for its cherry blossom-lined streets, many social events during the year, and its proximity to two metros (under 1.5 miles from Friendship Heights at the DC line and Bethesda Metro). There are two parks in the neighborhood and the Capital Crescent Trail for biking/walking/running goes through the neighborhood for access to Georgetown and Bethesda. Shopping, restaurants and recreation options are abundant.
