Property Description

Situated on a spectacular 56,301 square foot lot with gorgeous mature trees, this home is one of the most enchanting properties in Capitol View Park. Originally built in 1895, this sprawling Nantucket-style residence has been expanded and updated over the years, with numerous aesthetic improvements designed by the current owner, an architect of note. Nestled in a fairy tale setting, this historic home features many extraordinary architectural details seamlessly blending old and new including: original woodwork and floors, striking skylights, delightful nooks and crannies, a unique Mahogany banister with a twist wood handrail, vintage fittings, recessed lighting, Heart of Pine flooring, a French Country ambiance, and exceptional outdoor space. A convenient glass-enclosed atrium entry takes in picturesque views. Beyond this is a French Country style formal dining room with chair rail molding, and an inviting living room with a wood burning fireplace, custom built-ins, and two French doors that lead out to the amazing screened-in porch. Overlooking the backyard and side patio with a calming water feature, the tranquil porch provides the perfect spot for entertaining large gatherings. The porch opens to the French Country kitchen with custom cabinetry, quartz counters, a GE Café 6 burner gas stove, display shelving, two dishwashers, a built-in butcher block counter, an island, beadboard backsplash, and includes a charming breakfast nook with brick accents, fireplace with gas log, vaulted ceilings, and backyard views. Off the kitchen is a cozy family room with custom millwork and a spiral staircase to the lower level. The main level is complete with a standing desk workstation, a spacious bedroom, powder room, coat closet, and the perfect ‘drop zone’ adjoining the kitchen and the second main entrance. This magnificent home has so much charm - you will be delighted at every turn! There are two staircases to the upper level where you will find three oversized bedrooms, two updated full bathrooms, a versatile sleeping porch / office, and a large landing area with a reading nook. The elegant primary bedroom suite features a private bathroom (with a rough-in for laundry), a bump out, custom drapery, a walk-in closet, and three additional closets. A floored attic provides ample storage space and is accessed via a fixed staircase from the upstairs landing. Downstairs, there is a fifth bedroom with a private exterior entrance and a full bathroom. This level offers ample storage space, a work bench area, laundry, and exposed stonework. The lushly landscaped property features a large circular driveway, magnificent stone hardscaping, a stone pathway encircling the rear and sides of the house, a side patio with a water fountain, a large screen porch with two ceiling fans, and a detached two car garage. 
 Enjoy living in eclectic Capitol View Park; the location offers all the allure and convenience of this very special area with proximity to the Marc Train Station, Forest Glen Metro, and Historic Kensington.  Relish the warm sense of community as well as ready access to shopping, including Costco, restaurants, and entertainment in both Kensington and Silver Spring.
