$1,200,000 5713 Cheshire Dr, Bethesda, MD 20814
This one-of-a-kind Wildwood beauty features a fabulous floor plan with two-car garage (you don't find many of those in this zip code!). Don?t let the exterior fool you ? It?s a lot bigger than it looks from the curb! Five finished levels and a 16,000+ sf lot ? This is a great home for entertaining, working from home or enjoying family time. Visitors are welcomed through a designated entry foyer adjacent to formal living and dining rooms, kitchen and a large sunroom. The sunroom has skylights and large windows on three walls that drench the space in natural light. An exposed natural brick wall (very on-trend!) adds to the charm of this sweet space. What a great spot to enjoy your morning coffee while watching the many species of birds visiting the yard. Upstairs finds three generously sized bedrooms and two full baths (one en suite) and a huge primary suite is located on the top level (very private!), for a total of four bedrooms and three full baths up. The primary suite includes a sitting room, two closets and a large renovated bathroom with stylish ?barn? door. This space is a perfect retreat at the end of a busy day! This home has lots of room to spread out, including a spacious family room with ceramic tile floor, built-in bookshelves and wood burning fireplace. The garage and patio are both accessed through the family room. There is a fifth bedroom and fourth full bath on the lower level, plus a private home office with glass door and built-in counter. Storage spaces include a large attic accessible through the primary bedroom. Peaceful outdoor spaces include a deck, patio and fenced backyard. This yard is a gardener?s delight with designated gardening area and built-in raised beds. The lot is lushly landscaped, providing a nice privacy barrier from the surrounding homes. It?s beautiful all year, but particularly lovely in Spring when the azaleas make their debut! The home has been updated to include fresh neutral paint throughout, newly refinished hardwood floors and fresh carpet in the lower level office and bedroom. Additional updates include new roof (2022), HVAC and hot water heater. All the un-sexy money has been spent here ? Move in and make it your own! Cheshire Drive is a pretty, tree-lined street just a few blocks to Wildwood Shopping Center and all it has to offer: Bethesda Bagels, Starbucks, Fish Taco, Joe & The Juice, Solid Core Yoga, South Moon Under, Balducci?s and a whole lot more! Wildwood has tons of community spirit and has been recognized as a ?Great Neighborhood? by Washingtonian and Bethesda Magazines. The fun includes an epic Fourth of July Parade and Annual Halloween Party. Wildwood Swimming Pool is located just down the block and offers a competitive swim team, swim lessons and social events. Metro is easily accessible via the Bethesda Trolley Trail (less than a mile on foot). Walkscore got it wrong on this one ? This property is super walkable!
