That picturesque Rosemont home you've always admired...could finally be yours! Fall in love with this charming yet grand stunner with its welcoming facade and exceptional curb appeal, sited ideally between (and walkable to) both the King Street and Braddock Road Metros. Arrive on the enormous front porch and you'll instantly feel the inviting vibe of this unique property. Enter into the gracious foyer and be captured by the timeless architectural details and warm hardwoods throughout. To one side of the central Chippendale stairwell you'll find the delightful living room with a wood-burning fireplace and plenty of space to gather. To the other side you'll find the traditional formal dining room featuring extensive built-ins and an elegant marble serving area. Proceed into the kitchen to find stainless steel appliances, an efficient workspace and plenty of storage, all opening to the bright sunroom or breakfast nook, where wall to ceiling glass doors provide unobstructed views of, and access, to the raised deck and enclosed northern side yard. This nearly maintenance-free, beautifully landscaped and hardscaped courtyard has hosted fabulous celebrations and relaxing evenings under the stars for the homeowners and their favorite companions for over a decade. Although fully enclosed, this area opens to the street and can easily accommodate off-street parking for cars, bikes, scooters or any of your other toys. Back inside the home, a main level marble powder room is discreetly located. Heading up to the next level you'll find a large primary bedroom, two additional sizable bedrooms and a full bathroom with a pedestal sink and a tub shower. Up one more level you'll find two additional bedrooms with skylights, more built-in storage and a tiled full bath with a beautiful claw-footed bathtub. If you don't have the need for so many bedrooms, you have options! Home office, sitting room, study room...you name it. In nearly every space you will find top of the line plantation shutters that put that finished look on each room while providing privacy or shade when desired. Back downstairs, on the lowest level, you will find a windowed, clean, bright and open basement, providing additional shelved and hanging storage, a full laundry area, room for a workshop, exercise area or a spot for your favorite projects. An interior exit to the northern yard offers ease of access if you'd like to bring your equipment, tools or other supplies in and out from below. The property boasts yet another (southern) side yard that connects through the gate behind the home, so you may indeed all live under the same roof, yet still sneak your peaceful nap in the shade while the rest of the gang is watching or playing the game in your "other yard". Snooze away; other than the nesting mama morning dove trilling up above, you won't hear a thing. This very special home is walkable to The Avenue of Del Ray, all that Old Town has to offer and even allows for you to pop across the street to Grape & Bean for some fresh bread, champagne and charcuterie. Minutes to Reagan National, Amazon HQ2 and all major roadways, 500 Commonwealth Avenue sparkles with inviting touches both inside and out. Open Friday, 4:30-6pm, Saturday 1-3pm and Sunday, 12-2pm! PLEASE NOTE: OFFERS, IF ANY, DUE BY NOON ON MONDAY, 5/24.
