Silver Spring, MD
Welcome to this private retreat in Capitol View Park. This meticulously renovated bungalow features 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths and provides easy one-level living. The original portion of the home, built-in 1921, retains much of the charm of the era and blends seamlessly with the 2004 Craftsman style addition designed by architect Paul Treseder. Nestled among mature trees and lovely landscaping, the views from the extensive windows are spectacular every season of the year. This light-filled home highlights beautiful woodwork, crown molding trims and hardwood floors throughout. A Samsung SmartThings system has been installed – the system is wireless, Alexa-enabled for voice commands, and operates devices online including two thermostats, video cams, Wi-Fi hubs and one door lock. The kitchen was remodeled in 2013 with new appliances and granite counters and includes a pantry closet, recessed and pendant lighting, a tasteful tile backsplash and is open to the dining area with French doors that open to the secluded deck with expansive views. The spacious living room contains high ceilings, ceiling fan, recessed lights and a Rumford wood burning fireplace. A large family room off the kitchen features recessed lights and a gas fireplace. The side hall provides access to two additional bedrooms and a full bath. The owner’s suite impresses with the views from the oversized windows, walk-in closet and attractive master bath with double sink vanity and linen closet. The lower level is currently unfinished but has great storage capacity and expansion potential. The basement has been appointed with glass doors and windows to provide light and ease of exit and entry to the back yard. The garage, built in 1921, has been insulated and has electrical power including a 220-volt outlet, and a six-foot wide barn door – a perfect space for a workshop or studio. A garden shed on the property was designed to look vintage and has salvaged windows to support the authenticity. Additional storage space is available under the deck. Landscape and porch lighting are operated by smart switches. A stamped concrete driveway provides ample parking. The superb location provides easy access to the Ride-on bus, close proximity to Forest Glen metro, Rock Creek Park, shopping, restaurants, schools, libraries and much more!
