This rarely available, attractive stone front Gosnell cape cod/colonial with dormers and double bay windows exudes charm and character inside and out. Located on a quiet 1/3 acre in one of the most beautiful sections of River Falls, this home offers prized proximity to the bike path leading to the popular neighborhood swim/tennis club. Owned by one family for 29 years, this home is well maintained and move-in ready. Inside, the center hall plan offers a formal Living Room with crown moldings and a wood burning fireplace on the left and very nicely proportioned Dining Room with crown moldings, chair rail and wainscoting on the right. The bay windows cast beautiful light into these rooms. The casual living space is found in the back half of the home with a wonderful, comfortable open Kitchen/Family Room arrangement. The Kitchen with a large eating area has Williamsburg-style brick enclosure around the cooktop and wall ovens, lots of cabinetry for storage including a center island, Silestone counters and a walk-in Pantry adjacent to the must-have laundry/mud room. The Family Room is a perfect gathering place with beamed ceilings, a wet bar, built-ins and a wood burning fireplace. If you want a peaceful spot to read a book or just relax, head to the Sunroom with three walls of windows overlooking the backyard. Upstairs is a large Owners Suite with a dressing area, custom closets and a renovated Owners Bath with a stall shower and soaking tub. Two other generously proportioned bedrooms and a renovated hall bath complete the Upper Level. The Lower Level includes a terrific Recreation Room with a wood burning fireplace, a game table/billiard space and built-in bar. If you need to work from home, this lower level has the perfect home office with a separate entrance, small reception/waiting area and private office and full bath. If you don't need the office space, then this could become transformed into an Au Pair Suite/studio-you name it! For spring/summer entertaining, invite your friends over for a barbecue and relax on the back deck overlooking the lawn and trees. It's a wonderful, private setting, a sanctuary with great bird watching. Kolbe & Kolbe windows on main house; Anderson windows in Sunroom. Lawn irrigation system front & back, security system, hardwood floors on main and upper levels, 2 whole house surge protectors, professional hardscaping/landscaping incl. a flagstone walkway with a brick border; a second entrance directly into the mud/laundry room. Carderock ES, Pyle MS and Whitman High School, ranked #1 high school in MD by US News & World Report. Ideally located just off the Clara Barton Parkway, River Falls offers easy access to all major commuting routes: I-495, the Beltway, north to the I-270, BioMed Corridor or south to Tyson's Corner, VA or the parkway into downtown Bethesda or DC. Both area airports are within a half hour non-rush hour drive. For the outdoor enthusiast, Great Falls National Park is minutes away for hiking, kayaking, climbing the stone face of Billy Goat Trail, biking into Georgetown or, at this time of year, enjoying a leisurely stroll through the amazing bluebells and other spring ephemeral wild flowers on the trails. In another two months, the River Falls Swim/Tennis Club will be in action with a winning MCSL swim team and a Junior Tennis Team. Other activities include men's and women's tennis teams, pickle ball, Camp River Falls and the ever popular July Fourth parade and picnic. Look no further--you have found one of the best neighborhoods in Potomac and beautiful home with a stellar location within the community. Make it yours today!
