Situated in a private cul-de-sac mere steps to the many walking, hiking and biking trails of Rock Creek Park, this beautiful home sits nestled in the highly sought after neighborhood of Barnaby Woods. Contemporary and light-filled, it features enchanting outdoor living spaces, a wraparound deck, generously tall ceilings, windows galore offering views of Rock Creek, and an incredible layout. A rare gem, it is both elegant and comfortable: usher your guests into the expansive living room with wood-burning fireplace, access to the deck overlooking the garden, and three walls of windows - or keep an eye on the homework club in the table space kitchen with two ovens, abundant cabinetry and counterspace, storage and laundry. The spacious dining room offers views of the garden and park, and a convenient office and powder room round out the main level floor plan. Upstairs, enjoy natural light from several skylights and a primary bedroom with fireplace, a balcony perfect for that morning cup of joe, and a large spa-like bathroom with jacuzzi, separate shower, and dual vanities and sinks. A large dressing room cleverly designed with hanging space, drawers, and shoe storage completes the space. Two additional bedrooms are roomy enough for queen beds or bunk beds and both offer roomy closets. The walk-out lower level boasts not only a beautiful family room with views of the flagstone garden, but an additional office space with an abundance of closets and built-ins plus another full bath. Two office spaces! - so important for those work-at-home days. The French doors to the garden offer the possibility of separate-entrance access to this space should you wish to convert it to an in-law suite. Finally, the garage and driveway provide 4-6 parking spaces and the Oregon Knolls community provides additional spaces for guests just a few steps away. In a previous life, the house was owned by a landscape architect and the current owners have lovingly maintained the beautiful design (assisted by the underground sprinkler system!) Tiered garden levels, multiple species of flowering trees, something in bloom all year round, and adjacent to one of the country’s best urban parks - this is where residential tranquility and urban access meet. Oregon Avenue now provides wide sidewalks for easy access to all that the neighborhood offers, and the experience of nature offered by Rock Creek Park cannot be overstated. Come see for yourself! Open House Sunday April 16, NOON-2PM.
