Welcome to this romantic cottage perfectly located on a beautiful tree-lined street in the Town of Somerset. This distinctive residence combines glorious architectural details, historic character, and timeless design with modern flair and elegance. It boasts a three-story addition with a chef’s kitchen, delightful breakfast room, sun-drenched family room, luxurious master bedroom suite and an expansive lower level. Imagine roasting marshmallows in the living room fireplace on a snowy day, watching neighborhood life from the inviting front porch and enjoying sunsets from the roof top terrace. With its gracious rooms, meticulous attention to detail, and versatile indoor and outdoor entertaining areas, this home is truly a treasure. 

This superbly located home is down the street from Somerset Elementary School and ever so convenient to Metro, the biking and jogging paths of the Capital Crescent Trail, Norwood Park and the vibrant social life and restaurant scenes of downtown Bethesda and Friendship Heights.  The Town of Somerset, founded in 1890, offers many amenities – a swimming pool, tennis courts, batting cage, basketball court and parkland. It is known for its small-town atmosphere and sense of community.  Sledding on the Cumberland Avenue hill after a snowfall, the Fourth of July parade and picnic, pool parties and trick or treating on Halloween are popular town traditions.
