Property Description

New to market! This New England style Colonial is situated in a beautiful, private setting with award-winning gardens on a prime one acre lot. A perfect home for those looking for loads of charm and character without having to sacrifice space or a floor plan suited to everyday living. For history buffs, the property was formerly on the edge of the Bannockburn Golf Club which turned into the neighborhood of Bannockburn Heights. This home boasts a recently renovated gourmet Kitchen in 2018 that opens to a large Family Room featuring a gas fireplace, built-in cabinetry and Powder Room. The mahogany paneled Living Room enjoys a wood burning fireplace, adjacent bar area and a second Powder Room. The Dining Room offers a classic wood burning fireplace leading to a lovely Sun Room which opens to a walled English Garden patio showcasing an inviting fountain trickling into a small pool. The patio walkway path leads to a second covered porch with porch swing located off the Family Room. The rear entrance Foyer with brick flooring is a perfect Mud Room and the adjacent Office can be used for any of your work or hobby needs. The upper level includes a delightful Primary Bedroom Suite with a wood burning fireplace and a magnificent Bathroom with an oversized frameless glass shower, two walk-in closets, separate water closet and a reclaimed wood vanity topped with stone. The second Ensuite Bedroom has a renovated Bath with a frameless glass shower and stone surfaces. There are two more Bedrooms and an updated hall Bath. On the grounds, there is a separate Cottage with full Bath that is currently used as a second Office but could be private living quarters. The garden and grounds are breathtaking with rose-covered arbors and a wrought iron gazebo, flagstone pathways meander through numerous garden beds featuring specimen plants, peonies galore and flowering magnolia trees. The lawn area is large enough for soccer games or a possible future pool. The circular driveway graces the front entrance and an additional driveway accesses the over-sized garage and rear entrance of the home. A superior location close to downtown Bethesda, the C&O Canal, shopping and schools in the Whitman cluster.
