Oh my goodness! This house is an absolute cream puff! Meticulously maintained by the long-time owner, this storybook-sweet cottage is loaded with charm! The house has a brand new roof, wood floors, replacement windows, plantation shutters and is freshly painted in neutral colors ... It’s truly turn-key! This low-maintenance brick home features a traditional Cape Cod style floor plan: living room with gas fireplace, dining room, kitchen with gas stove, two bedrooms (or two offices ... take your pick!) and a full bathroom. Upstairs finds two spacious bedrooms with wood floors and plenty of closet space. An additional full bathroom is located on the upper level. The lower level includes a family room with gas fireplace, full bathroom, laundry, workshop and loads of storage. Windows and a door to the backyard provide plenty of natural light into the lower level. The house is absolutely lovely, but step through the kitchen door to the deck and look out over one of the most beautiful backyards in Bethesda! A professionally designed pond with meandering stone waterfall sets the backdrop. The pond is loaded with mature fish, and the water attracts many species of birds. Enjoy your morning coffee on the bench while watching nature’s show! Lush trees and perennial plants include beautiful River Birch, Flowering Dogwoods, Rhododendren, Liriope, Hosta, ground cover and more. Loads of daffodils scattered around the yard appear each year to announce the start of Spring. Follow the flagstone path to the rear corner of the yard to the shed. Use it as a potting/gardening shed, storage shed or as a private she-shed! The fully-fenced backyard has a built-in lawn irrigation system and retractable awning over the deck. A peaceful oasis, yet only blocks to Wildwood Shopping Center, Fleming Park and the Bethesda Trolley Trail. OPEN SATURDAY 1 to 3 pm
