$1,060,000 7808 CHARLESTON DRIVE, BETHESDA, MD 20817
Welcome to the idyllic Ashleigh Neighborhood of Bethesda! Meticulously maintained by one owner, this stately, Bell-built colonial is an Ashleigh classic. The traditional floor plan features a spacious entry foyer with formal living and dining rooms to the right and a kitchen and charming family room to the left. First floor laundry with modern, front loading washer and dryer and mud room connect the kitchen to the garage. A laundry chute makes easy work of the dirty laundry. The light-filled sun room addition overlooks a lush green backyard and would make an ideal place for an inspirational home office. Upstairs finds a large master bedroom with updated en suite master bath and closets. Three additional bedrooms and a full bath round out the upper level. All bedrooms have wood flooring and neutral paint and the bedrooms on the front of the home have white plantation shutters on the windows. The lower level offers a recreation room with bar, half bath, multiple storage closets and utility room. A door in the rec room allows access to the backyard. This home includes three fireplaces (living room, family room and recreation room) which add to the coziness during the winter months. Freshly finished wood floors and neutral paint make this home a lovely blank slate. Move in and make it your own! Sited on a 27,000+ square foot lot with mature trees and plantings and a paver patio off the kitchen, perfect for a backyard barbecue! The exterior is finished in low-maintenance brick and wood siding and the roof was replaced in 2018. A two car garage and double width driveway provide plenty of space for off-street parking. The Ashleigh Neighborhood has tons of community spirit and is conveniently located adjacent to Seven Locks Swim Club, Bethesda Country Club and the Cabin John Trail system. The location provides easy access to major commuter routes (I-270, I-495, River Road). All the convenience of Bethesda, in a quiet, country club like setting!
