Property Description

Welcome to this extraordinary brick and stone colonial residence on a beautiful tree-lined street in the Town of Somerset.  Built in 1935, this exceptional property has been meticulously maintained and renovated over the years and boasts superb additions by acclaimed architect Benjamin Van Dusen.  It overlooks one of the most magnificent and generously sized yards in this close-in community. This exquisite home offers a gracious entry foyer, formal living room with stone fireplace, grand dining room, butler’s pantry, dramatic chef’s kitchen flooded with light, sundrenched family room with walls of glass, fireplace, and breakfast area, handsome library with custom cabinetry, powder room, and mud room with laundry.  There are four bedroom and three baths, including a luxurious master suite with vaulted ceilings and sitting room, on the second level and a private retreat complete with bedroom and loft area on the top floor.  The lower level includes a recreation room, full bath, and utility room. The enchanting lushly landscaped over half acre private yard features two covered porches, a delightful patio, colorful fairytale gardens, majestic plantings, and a serene setting.


Within walking distance are the neighborhood pool and tennis courts, METRO, Somerset Elementary School, the Capital Crescent Trail, Norwood Park and the fine shops and dining of Friendship Heights and Bethesda.  Somerset, founded in 1890, elects a mayor and council members, publishes a monthly town journal and has its own swimming pool, town hall, and tennis courts.  It is known for its small town atmosphere and sense of community.  Sledding on the Cumberland Avenue hill after a snowfall is a town tradition as are the Fourth of July parade and picnic.
