We are very excited to be listing this beautiful home, with endless charm, in a prime Bethesda location. Please stop by our open houses Saturday and Sunday April 7-8 from 2:00 to 4:00pm. 

Location
Greenwich Forest, developed in the 1930’s, is a neighborhood of rolling terrain, tall trees, and houses reminiscent of England.  Specifically, Hampden Lane was voted “10 Great Streets To Live On,” By Bethesda Magazine for its deep front yards and winding street. This convenient location is close to the shops, restaurants, and METRO in downtown Bethesda, while the Capital Crescent Trail — connecting Georgetown with Silver Spring – with its many recreational options is only a short walk or bike ride away. The neighborhood also provides easy access to major roadways and is only a short drive from downtown DC.

Residence
This picturesque Tudor is equal parts comfort and character. The high ceilings and bright rooms are both welcoming and gorgeous. The sweet covered front porch and exquisite glass paneled front door are truly the perfect first impressions and the interior of the house is also sure to impress. Enter into an open space that leads to a large, elegant living room with a wood burning fireplace and original leaded glass windows. Continue into the heart of the home where you’ll find the updated kitchen and family room with custom built-ins for a tv and a nook for a “command center.” Dine at either the island with wine storage underneath or take it alfresco through the French doors onto the spacious deck that overlooks the maturely landscaped, flat back yard. The perfectly appointed dining room with wainscoting and built-in mirrored bar is another option for hosting. The view of the private backyard may also be enjoyed in the den/office area that boasts loads of storage and built-in desk.

A wide, lacquered stair rail leads to the second level. Be sure not to miss the charming built-in dresser at the top of the stairs. The master suite is generous in size and has a walk-in closet and en-suite bathroom with a double vanity. Three additional bedrooms, each with their own charm, and full hall bathroom complete this level. The lower features a recreation room, possible guest room, full bath and laundry room.
