9604 Old Spring Road, Kensington, Maryland

Welcome to this recently renovated and completely unique brick Cape Cod situated on a private and beautifully landscaped 17,557 square foot lot. Among its many features, please take note of all the custom upgrades the current owners have added throughout. The modern bathrooms are exceptional and offer wonderful spa accents. Other features include updated Pella windows, random width pegged hardwood flooring, and recessed lighting with dimmable LEDs . A stunning top of the line kitchen features a 10' custom island with outlets, honed granite countertops, gas range, stainless farmer's sink, custom Merillat cabinetry, stainless steel appliances and a cozy gas fireplace with a train tiled surround.  Train and ranch themes feature throughout the house as it was custom built for local 1950s TV celebrity and train enthusiast Pick Temple, who hosted cowboy-themed kids' TV shows.  This one of a kind home offers plenty of space — the main level features a formal living room with a fireplace, the spacious kitchen that opens to a formal dining room and an enormous, private, three-season screened-in porch connected by wrap around flagstone walkway to the covered front porch.  Two bedrooms and two completely remodeled bathrooms along with an elegant entry hall round out the main floor.  Enjoy the three spacious bedrooms and two baths (bathrooms share shower) on the upper level, which includes a wonderful common area/family room. The lower level is endless — there is large recreation room with a fireplace and a walk out entrance, an additional media/recreational space with a charming retro wet bar, half bath, laundry, exercise space, and tons of storage. One block to Beach Drive, this home offers easy access to Rock Creek Park and its great bike/walk paths, as well as to the Beltway and beyond. Please let this brochure be the guide to the many other amenities this special home has to offer.
