5620 WOOD WAY
This enchanting home, nestled on a tree-lined street at the end of a cul-de-sac in the Sumner neighborhood of Bethesda, is one you truly must see to appreciate. It is the kind of home that conjures images of cooking a gourmet dinner and inviting a group of friends over to eat and play Trivial Pursuit in front of a roaring fire! Warm, cozy and inviting, yet spacious and dynamic, with many interesting details ... wood beams, interior brick, skylights and more. There's even a secret trap door hiding a finished storage space (or perhaps a secret hide out, depending upon how much fun you are!). A light-filled entry portico welcomes you home, providing secure access to the front door. Inside finds a gracious living room with wood-burning fireplace and atrium window nook. A formal dining room provides plenty of room for entertaining on a grand scale. The family room has a wall of exposed brick with another wood-burning fireplace, skylight, exposed natural wood beams and built-ins. Off the family room is the kitchen which has a lovely breakfast nook overlooking the back yard ~ a fine place to enjoy your morning coffee! (Note: a new stainless refrigerator is being installed this week). Also included on the main level is a stunning addition which can be used as a first floor bedroom suite (with full bath, closet and laundry), or a private home office with separate entrance on the side of the house. A tray ceiling holds a large skylight, drenching the space in natural light. This room also has a built-in window seat, bookshelves and cabinetry for storage. Two playful square windows allow a peek at what's on the level below ~ a sunny studio for an artist, a yogi, a musician ~ the possibilities are endless! Upstairs finds three spacious bedrooms, each with wood floors. The master has two closets (one walk-in) and en-suite bath with shower. A hall bath with tub and shower and sunny skylight services the other two bedrooms. Each secondary bedroom has plenty of closet space. The third bedroom features a wall of built-in bookshelves, cabinetry and a desk ~ a sweet place to do homework. The lower level is an unexpected surprise! Fresh and clean with doors to the back yard, this level includes a flex room with full bath (bedroom, office, family room, playroom ~ you decide!) and a two-story studio with endless possibilities! Walk-out level, the space is flooded with light from large windows and skylights. Also included on the lower level is storage and a large laundry room. The 10,000 plus square foot lot is professionally landscaped. A deck off the kitchen and several brick patios provide lovely outdoor spaces. Mature trees and perennial plantings provide privacy and serenity.
