No need to focus on the Western Avenue address - with an additional prominent entrance from Oliver Street, this home lives as if it fronts Oliver Street! Finally - an opportunity to make one of the most noteworthy properties in Chevy Chase Village your own. Home to the same family for decades, this Georgian colonial was built in 1918 as the model home to the "newer" section of the Village and is expectantly awaiting its next steward. Set back from the street behind a private hedge on a spectacular double lot of nearly half an acre, the light-filled home with over 6,400 sf of living space was constructed with the highest end finishes of the day. While the home is in need of updating, buyers will be glad to see that many of the original details are still intact, including beautiful Palladian windows, amazing fixtures and hardware, intricate plaster moldings, 9+' ceilings on the main and second levels and incredibly gracious room sizes. A center hall entry looks through to a matching arched entryway and opens to a generous and deep foyer. A grand piano sized living room encompasses the depth of the house and opens to the family/sunroom with original herringbone brick floors, gorgeous French doors and Palladian windows leading to and overlooking the side patio enclosed by a semi-circle secret garden of stunning mature plantings. Dining and breakfast rooms are found with the kitchen on the other side of the foyer; the dining room also has original French doors to the front. The rear foyer and kitchen open to a deck and the elegant landscape and pool-sized grounds of the property. The second level features three bedrooms and two baths, including the primary with ensuite bath and a large sitting room with vaulted ceiling. Two additional bedrooms, a sitting room and bath are on the third level. The lower level space includes a recreation area, a bedroom suite with access from the driveway, laundry and bonus space. Metro and the shops and restaurants of both Connecticut Avenue and Friendship Heights are within blocks, as are many parks, playgrounds, schools and clubs. The Capital Crescent Trail and Bethesda are also nearby and enjoyed by Village residents. Chevy Chase Village has its own post office, police department and administration, providing residents many amenities including daily house checks by the police department to households whose members are away, twice weekly trash collection, bulk pick up, numerous community parties, events, activities and more. So close to everything, this location is the perfect choice for those who desire a bucolic, established neighborhood with all of the conveniences of the city right at hand. Property is an estate and conveys in "As-Is" condition.
