This beautifully renovated Georgian residence is sited on a sought-after cul-de-sac in verdant Kent. The stately brick home has wonderful curb appeal with a lovely brick walkway and layered front landscaping designed by D.A. Dunlevy. The residence has been thoughtfully renovated and expanded by GLB Construction and Harpole Architects. The interior is over 6,000 square feet and features impressive details and finish work throughout. Oversized windows and skylights provide the generously-scaled rooms with an abundance of natural sunlight on all floors, which is further magnified by the high ceilings. The elegant entry foyer, which is complemented with paneled wall details and marble floors, seamlessly transitions to the formal entertaining rooms. The gracious double living room has exposures on three sides and features hardwood floors, attractive moldings, a beautiful central fireplace with marble surround, and three sets of French doors with arched transom windows to the rear deck. The sophisticated dining room neighbors the exceptionally renovated gourmet kitchen. The eat-in kitchen is well-appointed with marble countertops, high-end stainless-steel appliances, ample cabinetry, and a large center island with a six-burner range and breakfast bar. The kitchen opens onto the sunny breakfast room, which is completely surrounded by windows overlooking the rear yard and garden. Adjoining the kitchen is the impressive family room, which is enhanced with built-in bookshelves, cabinetry, a gas fireplace with French limestone surround, and two sets of French doors to the Ipe deck. There is also the added convenience of a large powder room on this level. The stairwell to the second level has consistent wall paneling to match the foyer and beautiful skylights atop the landing flood this level with wonderful natural sunlight. The lovely primary bedroom is spacious and has high ceilings, a private office/dressing room and multiple additional closets, including a walk-in with added shelving. The dressing room can be converted to a fifth second-floor bedroom. There is also a luxurious spa-inspired en-suite bathroom outfitted in Thassos marble that offers dual vanities, a large linen closet, private commode, a free-standing soaking tub, and a frameless glass shower with a bench. There are three additional light-filled bedrooms on this floor, one of which has an en-suite marble bathroom, and a beautifully updated marble hall bathroom shared by the other two. There is also an expansive storage closet on this floor with ample space for all storage needs. The generous lower level features an attractive family room with built-ins and French doors that walk-out to the remarkably private covered terrace and flat rear yard. There are also two additional bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a laundry room with a utility sink, and multiple storage rooms. This level also provides access to the two-car garage. The property's location is within close proximity to neighborhood restaurants, shops, and parks. It has easy access to downtown Washington DC, two airports, and key transportation routes.
