Charming colonial with extraordinary gardens, facing onto Sligo Creek Park. This freshly updated 3-bedroom, 3.25-bathroom home boasts an expansive sunroom addition with sliding doors on three sides, opening onto two decks and a lovely side patio. The kitchen is appointed with gleaming new quartz countertops, a new marble backsplash, and a suite of versatile new lighting, as well as gorgeous new flooring and appliances. The gracious dining room looks out onto the gardens, and the ample living room offers windows on three sides and a wood-burning fireplace. The first floor also features a full bathroom with vaulted ceilings, a charming round window, and an extra linen closet. Upstairs you will find 2 more full bathrooms with updated vanities, and 3 bedrooms, including one large bedroom with ensuite bath, and another large bedroom with a luxurious walk-in closet, including custom shelving and a tubular skylight. The balcony-style upstairs hall overlooks a 2-story foyer. The lower level includes a recreation room, powder room, laundry, and access to the garage, which has a new smart automatic door. The enchanting grounds of this home have a “secret garden” feel, with winding pathways through stunning landscaping, such as an arbor entwined with evergreen jasmine and a garden swing with climbing hydrangea; a spacious, low-mow front lawn; and a fenced back yard.
The location is an ideal balance of privacy and tranquility with access and convenience. It is 2 minutes from 495, but just far enough not to hear highway noise. The house is set back on a small, quiet access road bordering park land, with a privacy wall of evergreen shrubs, yet so much is right out the front door. Runners, walkers, and bikers will be spoiled by the 10.2-mile Sligo Creek Trail directly across the street. There are free tennis courts in the lovely park just over a pedestrian bridge from the house, with a playground nearby, and the Sligo Creek Golf Course is 3 minutes away. Whole Foods, two cinemas, a seasonal skating rink, and the fabulous shops and restaurants of downtown Silver Spring are a charming 22-minute walk from the house, along peaceful residential streets that rarely see cars.
