Luxury townhouse living in one of Bethesda's most convenient neighborhoods! Welcome to Democracy Commons, a community of fifteen charming brick townhomes nestled among mature trees, yet less than a half mile from great restaurants, gourmet groceries, shops and more! This bright and sunny, end-unit townhome was the first home sold in the community and the builder added all the bells and whistles, including extensive brick hardscape and chimney, a 1100 square foot brick patio, three gas fireplaces and wood floors on all three levels. The main level feels very spacious, with formal living and dining rooms, gourmet kitchen with island and plenty of space for a table, family room with door to the deck and a powder room. With windows on three sides, the space is bathed in natural light throughout the day. This end-unit floor plan is wide, making the space feel less like a townhouse and more like a single-family home. Elegant spaces provide plenty of room for entertaining. Upstairs finds three bedrooms and two full baths as well as laundry. The master bedroom suite is a peaceful retreat with vaulted ceilings, large windows, a nook that's perfect for a sitting area or a desk, two walk-in closets and an en suite bath with dual vanities, Jacuzzi tub and separate shower. The secondary bedrooms are located in the front of the home, each with ample closet space and wood floors. The walk-out lower level has French doors which open to the charming backyard. The space is configured as a large recreation room with full bath and storage closet, but a fourth bedroom could easily be added with the addition of one wall (it was an option when the home was being built). Also located on this level is the spacious two-car garage with storage area. Sited at the end of the cul-de-sac, this home overlooks community common area with dense, mature trees which provide privacy from the surrounding neighborhood. The HOA fee covers lawn care and snow removal right up to the front door! Give away your snow blower! The garage accommodates two cars with two more parking spaces in the driveway. Additional unreserved parking is available in the community. "Walk Score" gives this home a 75! Park your car in the garage and explore the neighborhood: Balducci's, Bethesda Bagels, Starbucks, Flower Child and a host of other shops, restaurants, grocery stores and more. This home has a number of recent updates to include: New roof with 50 year warranty, powder room renovation, new Anderson windows, new backyard fence. The furnace, heat pump, air conditioning units and hot water heater are all less than ten years old. Convenience + Recent Updates + Low Maintenance = This one's a winner!
