Split-level contemporary cedar wood home nestled in between the Palisades and Kent neighborhoods. Located on a private drive off of MacArthur Blvd, this is a unique hillside home just minutes from downtown. The split level offers many private spots to work, cook, and enjoy family life. The entry level is actually on the 3rd floor, it has a light-filled foyer, formal dining room, and updated kitchen with lovely deck outside. Next level up (4) features a spacious living room with sizable wet bar, wine cooler, cozy library with built-ins, wood-burning fireplace, and hardwood floors with another outdoor deck off LR. Next level up (floor 5) is a full master suite, large bedroom, big closets, updated master bathroom with over-sized rainfall shower and wood-burning fireplace. Really heavenly. The open landing is perfect for home office. The top floor (6) has three bedrooms with new renovated bathroom, laundry room, and ample amount of closet space. Going down stairs from the entry level are two lower but on grade levels. They include a well-lit family room, large home office (could be fifth bedroom), wood-burning fireplace, and walk-out garden and patio area with access to the large two-car garage with storage space, out to the heated driveway. This open and bright home is surrounded by peaceful outdoor space with multiple decks, back yard area, and patio. A block away from the shops and restaurants along MacArthur Blvd. One block from Arizona Ave the Starbucks, minutes from Sibley Hospital, Metro bus stop and a short drive into Georgetown.
