This magnificent 10,000+ SF Tudor, originally built in 1942, is considered one of the most exceptional properties in all of Kenwood. In 2008, acclaimed architect David Jones oversaw a thoughtful expansion and meticulous renovation of the property to accommodate modern living. The home boasts four finished levels and sits on a large, half acre lot that can easily accommodate a swimming pool.
The main level features a spacious open floor plan with great flow throughout for both formal and informal entertaining, and is elevator-ready. The magnificent living room with coffered ceilings is flooded with light from oversized, leaded windows which were restored by a master craftsman as part of the renovation. Flanking the living room is a large, secluded sun-room (or office) with vaulted ceilings, and is serviced by its own powder room. The large eat-in chef’s kitchen features custom cabinetry, Calcutta gold marble countertops and backsplash, an oversized island, and high-end stainless steel appliances and two sets of french doors opening up to the back terrace. Off the kitchen is a convenient office cove and an oversized butler’s pantry which flows into the elegant formal dining room. This level also features a dramatic two-story family room with a wood burning fireplace, and two sets of french doors that lead to yet another patio. The main level is complete with a gracious foyer, and a conveniently located mudroom with built-in cubbies and its own side entrance.
On the second floor, you will find the luxurious primary suite, along with three additional bedrooms, all complete with ensuite bathrooms and walk-in closets. The oversized primary suite boasts two large walk-in closets and a spa-like ensuite bathroom with a double vanity, walk-in shower, free-standing soaking tub, and water closet. This level also features a library that is open to the family room below, ample hidden linen closets, a laundry chute, and an additional washer/dryer. The third level offers a bonus room, creating the perfect space to relax, study or play, as well as an additional bedroom with a full bathroom and walk-in closet. The walk-out lower level includes a recreation room with access to the covered terrace, a glass enclosed wine cellar, oversized laundry room, kitchenette, and an additional bedroom and bath, making this the perfect in-law or au pair suite.
Completing this masterfully designed home is a circular driveway with ample parking, and attached two-car garage with an abundance of storage. The professionally landscaped and private exterior serves as an extension of the home with three back terraces and flat yard surrounded by mature trees and plantings, offering multiple areas that can accommodate a swimming pool. This home enjoys access to Little Falls Parkway & the Capital Crescent Trail, is walking distance to Kenwood Country Club & whole foods, and is minutes from downtown Bethesda & Washington D.C.
