Welcome to this spectacular colonial built in 1931 by Mikkelson & Sons in the highly desirable Town of Chevy Chase, a block from Chevy Chase Elementary School and about a mile from downtown Bethesda and the Bethesda Red Line Metro station. With a lot size of 7,700 square feet and an estimated total of finished and unfinished square footage of 4,735 SF, there is plenty of room for a wonderful lifestyle. The current owners undertook two major renovations, the lower level in 2007 and, in 2010-2011, a conversion of the garage into a kitchen, breakfast area, adjoining family room and mudroom by the esteemed firms of David Jones Architects and Mauck Zantzinger & Associates, Inc. Features include a wide, front entry hall, large living room with wood-burning fireplace and built-in bookshelves and cabinets, separate dining room, kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances and Winchester, custom-made cabinets, breakfast area, adjoining family room with wood-burning fireplace, butler’s pantry, mudroom and powder room. The upper level has four bedrooms and two full baths. The fourth bedroom is often seen in Mikkelson-built houses, and it could also serve as an upstairs family room or home office. The master bedroom suite has wonderful closet space and a beautiful master bathroom. The attic has a fixed stairway and wood floors, so it could be finished for additional living space. The lower level was completely renovated in 2007 with a full bathroom with shower, built-in shelving and cabinets, wet bar with refrigerator, laundry room, crafts area, cedar closet and egress window. The exterior of the house is enchanting, with mature landscaping providing privacy in the fenced, backyard. There is also a terrace, yard area and recently installed shed in addition to off-street parking on the driveway. The roof was installed in 2013, and there are replacement Loewen windows installed since 2004. With sidewalks, generous lot sizes, meticulously-cared-for properties and long-term owners, there is a wonderful sense of place in this timeless neighborhood!
