Property Description

OPEN HOUSE CANCELLED. Beautifully renovated home with over 3,200 square feet on a large, coveted corner lot in the heart of Spring Valley yet steps to restaurants and shopping along the Massachusetts Avenue corridor. Step inside the welcoming entry foyer with coat closet to find generous rooms flooded with light at every turn! The living room with wood-burning fireplace features recessed lighting, large walls suited for art display and a sizable bay window. The white chef's kitchen with top of the line stainless steel appliances (Wolfe gas range and Subzero), stunning marble counters, white subway backsplash and peninsula with seating for 3 is open to the family room. Just off the kitchen is the dining room with walls of new windows and access to the flagstone patio below for easy outdoor dining. Just a few steps up to the 2nd level and you will find 3 bedrooms and 2 fully renovated baths. Stairs from the hall lead to a massive 2 level attic space currently used for storage, but the possibilities are endless. The walk out lower level contains the 4th bedroom with renovated 3rd full bath en-suite and a den/office with separate door to the rear patio. The 2nd lower level has a library/office with built-ins, a bonus room with washer/dryer, the 4th full bath, utility/storage space and a door with steps up to the rear patio, and a recreation room/gym with the 2nd fireplace. There is off-street parking for several cars plus a garage with storage room. The backyard is fenced and completely private surrounded by lush vegetation. Do not miss!
