3518 Astoria Court, Kensington, Maryland

Welcome to this wonderfully expanded and renovated three bedroom, two and a half bath split level home located on a quiet “court” in Newport Hills.  Among its many features, please take note of the spacious master bedroom suite offering vaulted ceilings, plenty of storage, laundry and a large bath with both shower and separate jacuzzi soaking tub.   The renovated kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops open out to the dining area with private views of the decks and yard.  The lower level offers a cozy family/recreation room with gas fireplace and also features the large lower level expansion - perfect for a variety of different needs - an office/workshop, an art studio or many others! 


The landscaping is unique to the house and the current owners spent much care and attention to making this home beautiful yet easy to maintain. Please see all the various plantings offered:    

Low maintenance, beautifully landscaped yard with stone walkways throughout. The house is shaded by a huge maple thought to be about 150 years old.  In the back yard tall evergreens [hollies, Cyprus] provide privacy. Multi-season floral focus with a changing landscape of greens and colors. In the spring there are crocus, daffodils, blue hyacinths, tulips, azaleas, dogwood, rhododendron, Carolina jessamine, Siberian iris and lilacs blooming. The summer plants include roses, coral bells, hydrangea, Echinacea, day lilies, lirope, many different hostas, crape myrtle, clematis, ferns and columbine.  In the fall, beautiful color changes of the maples and nandina.  Winter shows berries on the dogwood and nandina, the beautiful blooming yuletide camellia [starts blooming in late November- early December and typical last into January] and snowdrops.
