All the charm of \?Old Bethesda\? yet all the modern conveniences afforded by today\?s homes! This expanded cape has a gorgeous gourmet kitchen with custom cabinetry, quartz counters and high-end stainless appliances, to include a six-burner Wolf oven with pot filler above the stove. A huge island allows seating for four or more, and provides tons of extra storage space. It\?s a really well thought out renovation \? Form + Function = Comfortable Living and Entertaining! Off the entry foyer is an awesome mudroom with pantry, beverage fridge, extra sink and cubbies. Stylish floor tile and a barn door add to the charm. The kitchen opens to a spacious family room with built-in cabinetry, a wood burning fireplace, large windows and access to the backyard patio \? So much natural light! Formal dining with a lovely crystal chandelier and access to the rear patio is perfect for entertaining. Also located on the first floor is a bedroom/full bath suite with spiral staircase to a loft above with skylights, exposed brick and vaulted natural wood ceiling. The garage was converted to a home office by a previous owner, but could easily be converted back to a garage. The entire home is painted in neutral tones and there\?s plenty of recessed lighting (some on dimmers) so the mood is calm and relaxing. Upstairs there are three bedrooms and two full baths. The primary suite features a bedroom size walk-in closet that\?s been tricked out with rods, shelves and drawers \? there\?s space for everything! An en suite primary bath has double sinks and shower with frameless glass doors. The basement is flex space \? use it as a family room, exercise room or another home office. In addition to the open space there\?s a full bath and laundry room, both with wood slat sliding doors \? it\?s very chic! An unfinished walk-up attic allows space for storage. Mature trees and plantings in the fully-fenced backyard provide privacy. This home is sited on a beautiful tree-lined street, nestled among $2m+ homes, just blocks to Bethesda Row, the Capital Crescent Trail, Metro and great schools.
