$1,150,000 8411 RIVER ROCK TERRACE, BETHESDA, MD 20817
Welcome to 8411 River Rock Terrace! This charming home is sited on a quiet cul-de-sac, tucked high away among the tree tops of surrounding parkland. This traditional floor plan includes a gracious entry foyer, formal living room with fireplace, large dining room and gourmet kitchen, all great spaces for living and entertaining. A cozy family room features wood burning fireplace, custom built-ins and floor-to-ceiling windows which provide beautiful scenic views throughout the year. The family room opens to a large deck with retractable awning, a lovely place to enjoy your morning coffee or share a bottle of wine with friends or neighbors. The view out the windows ..... breathtaking! Lush, green and oh so private! Upstairs finds four generously sized bedrooms, including a large, private primary suite with walk-in closet and en suite bath with dual vanities, separate tub and shower and water closet. The walk-out lower level is fully finished with a huge recreation room featuring built-in cabinetry and wet bar ... an ideal space to throw a party! The sunroom with new LVT flooring provides access to the lower level deck. Custom built-ins add character to the space and provide additional storage. A full bath and large laundry room are also located on the lower level. The basement could easily be reconfigured to include an additional bedroom and/or a home office with a separate entrance via the side door. River Rock Terrace is not a through street, so there's very little traffic. This home has a sweet front porch which is an ideal spot to relax while you watch the kids play in the cul-de-sac. The oversized two-car garage easily accommodates two large cars and extra storage, and there is additional off-street driveway parking. Enjoy the serene view from one of two private decks, or take a hike out back through the woods, down to the creek or the C&O Canal. This super-convenient location offers easy access to Downtown Bethesda, DC or Virginia and is an easy stroll to neighborhood shops and restaurants, including Wild Tomato, Fish Taco and the Bethesda Co-op Market. It’s rare to find a home that’s this private, yet oh so convenient to the city!
