Welcome to this extraordinary four bedroom, three bath Rambler sited on a quiet cul-de-sac in Rock Creek Hills. Backing to the park, this large home - over 4,000 sq. ft. - provides privacy and beautiful year-round views.  The spacious foyer opens to an expansive living room with gas fireplace which is open to the step-up dining room – a wonderful entertaining space. Both rooms enjoy stunning views of Rock Creek Park and the private back yard and patio. The light-filled lower level features a generous recreation room, as well as, a large guest suite.  From the gourmet chef’s kitchen to the new bathrooms – this home has been completely renovated and modernized in varying stages from 2012-2017 and is truly move-in ready. Other recent upgrades include HVAC, new roof, insulation in walk-up attic, new electrical system and lighting, most windows replaced with Pella ProLine windows, new doors, custom blinds, carpeting and refinished hardwood floors. Additional features include a two-car garage, flagstone walkways and patio, and attached workshop/storage shed. Centrally located, you are near the area schools, public transportation and the Marc train, and downtown Kensington which offers great restaurants, shopping and the Saturday morning Farmer’s Market.
