Welcome to this stately center hall colonial perfectly located in one of Chevy Chase’s most popular neighborhoods, the Town of Somerset.  Overlooking one of the most generously sized yards in this close-in community, this distinctive residence has been impeccably maintained and seamlessly expanded over the years. The stunning family room addition by acclaimed architect Anne Decker boasts soaring ceilings, walls of windows, exquisite custom cabinetry and spectacular views. This exceptional home also offers a light-filled living room with fireplace, formal dining room, updated kitchen with breakfast bar, three bedrooms, two and one-half baths, recreation room with walkout entrance and garage.  Enjoy the sound of birds in the lushly landscaped gardens, dine alfresco on the impressive patio or play a game of soccer in the fabulous backyard.

This superbly placed home is close to all the amenities that the Town of Somerset has to offer – the swimming pool, tennis courts, batting cage and basketball hoops. It is steps to Somerset Elementary School and just a short stroll to Metro, the Capital Crescent Trail, Norwood Park and the vibrant social life and restaurant scenes of Downtown Bethesda and Friendship Heights.  Somerset, founded in 1890, elects a mayor and council members. The Town Journal, list serve and “Helping Hands” network keep the community informed and connected. Sledding on the Cumberland Avenue hill after a snowfall, the Fourth of July parade and picnic, swim team meets, pool parties and trick or treating on Halloween are popular neighborhood traditions.
