Located in the highly sought-after Town of Chevy Chase, this artist’s home is a testament to detail. Built in 1949, the classic brick colonial has been beautifully maintained by the current owners and offers the charming features of the original home along with the finishes and conveniences of today. Coordinating details abound - including original hardwood floors, solid wood doors, and brass hardware – all restored to like-new condition.
The stunning gourmet eat-in kitchen includes a Viking range and range hood. Kitchen cabinetry was custom designed and built by a local artisan. Counters are rare Brazilian Marinace Granite. A lovely and spacious front living room includes a wood burning fireplace and is complemented by a cozy, adjoining den and a formal dining room.
The main level primary suite features a newly renovated bath and a custom walk-in closet with a built-in dresser. Storage space is ample with a built-in armoire and a small, hallway library. Upstairs includes three additional bedrooms plus two full baths.
The bright lower level, with exterior access, contains a bonus room with full bath, perfect for a playroom or a variety of uses. The spacious laundry room houses a recently purchased washer and dryer as well as a utility sink. The lower level is rounded out by a large, extremely clean storage room and additional half-bath.
The fully floored, walk-up attic is easily converted to an additional room. The owners added professional insulation between the floor and second-floor ceiling for additional efficiency. The one-car garage is painted, contains fixed shelving, and is fronted by a long asphalt driveway that was replaced in 2020.
Among the home’s other valuable features are two recently installed energy-efficient, two-stage furnace and air-conditioning systems (main house – 2016, primary suite – 2020), air-cleaning, humidifier, and security.
The home’s stunning interior is complemented by a picturesque, tree-laden exterior. Mature plantings and a dense tree canopy surround tastefully landscaped gardens with hosta, azalea, and hydrangea galore. The terraced slate patio descends into a flat backyard that is a gardener’s joy with significant room to play.
Virgilia Street is one of few one-block lanes in Chevy Chase. Sidewalks leading to wonderful destinations including lush landscapes. With proximity to downtown Bethesda and the soon-to-open Chevy Chase Lake development, dining, shopping, and entertainment options are plentiful. Convenient Metro access and the Capital Crescent Trail are nearby, as is the charming Leland Park and Lawton Community Center.
The Town of Chevy Chase is an incorporated municipality with highly desirable, comprehensive services for residents, including twice-weekly trash and weekly recycling collection as well as snow and leaf removal and year-round community events.
