Nestled among unique historic homes, gentle hills and a canopy of trees, this chic and luxurious residence is located on one of the most beautiful streets in the Town of Somerset. Meticulously renovated, this home seamlessly blends contemporary, French moderne and traditional design elements to create sophisticated and comfortable living spaces.  Enter the large foyer through the art deco inspired vestibule and envision relaxing in the handsome library. Entertain guests in the elegant light-filled living room graced with a 1920’s fireplace mantel or the stunning family room with its glamorous fireplace and exquisite appointments.  There is a formal dining room and for warmer weather, a screened in porch with soaring gabled ceilings and two adjoining decks. A smart French bistro style kitchen with a spacious Butler’s pantry and sleek powder room complete the main level. Upstairs, there are four generously sized bedrooms, three full baths, including a sumptuous master suite and laundry room. The walk-out lower level hosts an eye catching recreation room with access to a patio, guest or au pair suite, full bath, workshop and garage. 

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, basketball hoops and parkland.  Somerset Elementary School is up the street. The popular neighborhood traditions of sledding on the Cumberland Avenue hill after a snowfall and trick or treating on Halloween are at your doorstep. Metro, the biking and jogging trails of the Capital Crescent Trail, Norwood Park, and the vibrant social life and restaurant scenes of Downtown Bethesda and Friendship Heights are all just a short stroll away.
