Property Description

Make this environmentally friendly 3 bedroom and 2.5-bathroom charmingly classic colonial brick house your home. Located DIRECTLY ACROSS from Rock Creek Park, Meadowbrook Riding Stables, and the hiker-biker path, with captivating green views. First floor includes an upgraded half bathroom, hardwood floors, contemporary kitchen featuring new stainless-steel appliances (gas range/oven, microwave, refrigerator, dishwasher, garbage disposal), peninsula kitchen counter that extends into luxurious, spacious breakfast/family room with vaulted ceilings, laminate and carpeted flooring, abundant daylight from picture windows with backyard view. Second floor features 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. The stylish master bedroom extends into master bathroom with large stand up tiled shower and Corian granite-look sink top, second bathroom has the original black & white tile with updated Corian sink top, and a shower bathtub. Utility basement includes new clothes washer and dryer, plenty of storage space, and Desert Dry basement foundation waterproofing guaranteed-for-life drainage system. Central air-conditioning and separate radiant heating systems each have programmable controls to “set and forget” your preferred temperature range. Multiple renewable energy systems make the house as “green” as possible (environmentally and financially). Solar panels (30 wholly-owned) provide 70% of the of the average annual electrical consumption and convey to the new owner. Most months the electric bill is just $8.50—the Pepco minimum! When the solar panels produce extra kilowatt hours, Solar Renewable Energy Credits (SRECs) are sold to the utility company to provide additional savings to the homeowner. Tankless water heater provides unlimited hot water on demand while saving on natural gas consumption. Generac automatic whole house backup generator provides immediate uninterrupted electrical supply and peace of mind during utility power outages. There’s a one-car garage with additional storage, plenty of street parking, and fenced back yard. This house was built in 1942 with impeccable detail, as one of the five original model homes for the subdivision! The newly-constructed Rock Creek Forest Elementary is walking distance from the home. Silver Creek Middle School is also newly built and feeds into Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School, all highly rated Montgomery County Public Schools. Just one block from East-West Highway commuter bus routes and within 2 miles from Bethesda and Silver Spring Metro stations. Walking distance to schools, playgrounds, tennis, basketball, grocery store, shopping, dining, health club, and houses of worship. Public transportation, including the future Purple Line, is nearby but the neighborhood is tranquil. Optional membership to Rock Creek Pool (with swimming, tennis, volleyball, and basketball courts) available to convey to new owners, avoiding the 9-10 year wait for Equity Membership. This home is nestled in the Rock Creek Forest neighborhood, an incredibly caring community. After serving as a family home for 36 years, it’s time to find the right new custodians to settle in and to call this house their home. The right buyer will understand long-term value, savings, and have their own vision for updates. The basement can be finished and the one-story addition can be built upon to add additional rooms on the second story. Seller is willing to pay for the buyer’s agent commission and the settlement paperwork that has been completed. You can redecorate rooms to suit your taste but the foremost important factor in buying a house is location—and it’s hard to find a home in a better location!
