Better than new! Check out this modern craftsman style home in the super convenient Ayrlawn neighborhood of Bethesda! This Welty-built beauty has been gently lived in and meticulously maintained and boasts all the modern conveniences of today’s home styles: nine foot ceilings, hardwood floors, recessed lighting, transom windows and architectural detailing, four bedrooms up (each with en suite bath), private home office with custom built-ins, gourmet kitchen, formal living and dining rooms and a finished lower level with door to the backyard (rare in this neighborhood!). Enjoy the benefits of a “used” new home: Lush landscape, extensive hardscape, custom window treatments, carpet runners and high-end washer and dryer … all included! You don’t get that in a new home!
Large room sizes and a functional floor plan make the home ideal for entertaining and everyday living. The gourmet kitchen has stylish white cabinetry, stainless appliances, under counter lighting and a center island with seating! A walk-in pantry provides additional storage and a butler’s pantry connects the kitchen to the dining room. There’s more than ample space for a large kitchen table in the breakfast nook with bump out … Plenty of room for everyone to bring a friend for dinner! The sun drenched kitchen opens to a spacious family room with gas fireplace and door to the backyard patio.
Imagine the joy of a primary suite with two walk-in closets and a bathroom with dual sinks, jetted tub, separate shower and a private water closet! A tray ceiling in the primary bedroom adds character to the space. Three additional bedrooms on the upper level each have their own en suite bathroom and large closets with closet organizers. Custom carpet runners over hardwood give a classic look to the upstairs hall. A very large laundry room is located on the bedroom level, with tons of cabinetry, modern front loading washer and dryer, laundry sink, shelving and countertops for folding laundry. Seriously, this awesome laundry room has everything but a fairy godmother to fold the clothes for you!
Enjoy the low-maintenance stone and hardiplank shingle and siding exterior. Relax on the charming front porch and wave as friends and neighbors walk by on their evening stroll. Outdoor dining is a breeze on the stone patio out back, and there’s an additional patio designed to accommodate a fire pit and surround seating. The well-established yard boasts mature trees and shrubbery and flat grassy areas, perfect for kicking a ball or playing croquet! (Note the basketball hoop conveys). The backyard is fully fenced.
An attached, front loading garage provides space for two cars and includes electric car charging capability. The garage is finished and well insulated, providing a sound and temperature barrier for the rooms located above the space.
