6-bedroom colonial in the special subdivision of Alta Vista, referred to by local historians as Bethesda's first real neighborhood.
Built in 1913 off of Old Georgetown Road, this home is less than a mile from NIH, Walter Reed, and the French International School.
Mature trees beautifully encircle the property; relax in the shade on the hammock or take a glass of lemonade to the stone patio and watch the fish swim in your very own backyard pond!
The covered, wrap-around front porch is another wonderful outdoor space, as well as a second-floor balcony accessed from the owner's bedroom. When it's too chilly to be outside, the main level has a beautiful sunroom, as well as a generous family room with a stone, wood-burning fireplace.
This level also offers a living room, separate dining room, and large kitchen that has an island with built-in cooktop, built-in shelving, and a cheerful breakfast area with skylights. The laundry room is conveniently located off of the kitchen.
Upstairs are 4 bedrooms and 2 full baths. The owner's bedroom has a walk-in closet, sitting area, brick fireplace, and access to a 16x23 balcony to watch the sunrise.
A third level has two more bedrooms and plenty of storage for your off-season items.
Alta Vista is a short bike ride to downtown Bethesda or Medical Center Metro station on the red line.
Visit the nearby Maplewood-Alta Vista Park for the playground, tennis and basketball courts, and a baseball field.
Residents also appreciate award winning schools and annual potluck dinners sponsored by Maplewood Citizens Association. Come and take a tour!
