This outstanding classic residence provides a lovely, grand oasis in the heart of Chevy Chase, with extensive grounds, gardens and pool, within easy walking distance of downtown Bethesda. Its spacious floor plan provides over 5800 square feet of elegantly finished space. A grand reception hall entrance welcomes guests and opens to embassy-sized Living and Dining Rooms. A Sunroom running the depth of the house offers windows overlooking the garden and opens to the spacious terrace. The large Chef's Kitchen provides Viking refrigerator and six-burner stove, plenty of cabinetry, and opens to the Breakfast Room. A lovely open staircase with large landing leads to the upper levels of the residence. The first upper level offers a lovely paneled Study and a light-filled hallway separating the four spacious Bedrooms, including a spacious Master Bedroom with MBA. A second Master Suite is located on the third floor of the home. This floor was created by the current owners, who lifted the ceiling and designed lovely new space - and can be used as an Office, Family Room or Guest Suite - including a foyer, a new Bathroom with large shower and double sinks, a sitting area with fireplace, and two large walk-in California closets. The interior of this residence offers tasteful built-ins, custom fixtures, beautiful hardwood floors, soaring 10 and 11 foot ceilings and rich mill work trim. The oversized 18,000 square foot property provides exceptionally lovely space for outdoor enjoyment, including a large flagstone terrace, mature gardens, a large pool and detached garage. The residence enjoys a private setting with easy parking along Hillcrest Place and is positioned next to the Chevy Chase Club. The driveway for the two-car detached garage is entered from the side street; Hillcrest Place provides easy access to the front of the house, as well as extra parking. The current owners completed an extensive renovation including the addition of two-zone air conditioning, new electric systems, new windows, kitchen and bathroom renovations and the creation of the smashing third level from unfinished space. Newly priced at $2,250,000, the home presents an opportunity for the buyer to realize a great value, and to live in one of Chevy Chase's finest homes. Nowhere else is a home of this quality and size offered in the area at the current price. Previously listed for $3 Million, this is a splendid one-of-a-kind residence, not to be missed!
