On a quiet street, in the heart of Bethesda, sits this expanded and renovated home offering an estimated 3400 square feet of living space encompassing four bedrooms, three full and one-half bathrooms. As you enter the home, on the left, you will find the open formal living room with wood-burning fireplace and dining room with custom built-ins. Overlooking the backyard is a large main-level office with additional built-ins that can also easily be turned into a 5th bedroom with the convenient main floor full bathroom steps away. A gourmet eat-in kitchen with a large island with seating for 4 includes Caesarstone quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, a prep sink in addition to the main sink, 3 ovens, and plenty of space for cooking and entertaining. Directly next to the kitchen is the generous family room with an oversized sliding glass door that leads to a large deck, turning the family room into the perfect indoor-outdoor living space. The fully fenced backyard is shaded by mature trees that create a canopy over the property. Also situated off of the family room is access to the attached one-car garage.

On the upper level, you will find the primary suite with built-in cabinetry, a walk-in closet - both providing plenty of storage as well as an ensuite bath. Down the hall are three well-sized bedrooms with a newly renovated (2021) bathroom to accommodate them. There is a large linen closet in the hall and a second linen closet in the hall full bath.

The beautifully finished lower level was totally renovated in 2019. The lower level includes a recreation room, laundry room, a half bath that was designed with the space and a drain to accommodate a future shower. The basement includes 2 large storage closets with shelves and additional storage in the electrical room and furnace room. The basement also has a built-in desk with shelving serving as a private escape for Zoom calls. There is a rear exit from the basement that leads to the backyard as well.

It is conveniently located near countless restaurants and desirable shopping with Woodmont Triangle and Bethesda Row nearby. It is sited conveniently between the Bethesda Metro Center and Medical Center Metro Station. Only steps away from NIH, Suburban Hospital, and several walking trails/parks - this home offers it all!
