You will not find another house like this in the area at this price point! This modern, custom-built VICTORIAN is a treasure trove of architectural details of yesteryear from gingerbread moulding to a lofty turret room, yet without the disadvantages of an old home. Situated tucked away in a coveted Capital View Park neighborhood walking distance to historic Kensington with all its dining and shopping options, the fairytale classics come alive as soon as you pull into the driveway. Invited in by a wraparound porch with copper roof and charming professional cottage garden (perennial and designed to please in every season), enter a welcoming foyer to the formal living room with stunning antique fireplace mantle and bronzed frontispiece, a sitting room meant for coffee on lazy mornings, and a formal dining room for intimate gatherings and special occasions. Chefs will love the Tuscan-European inspired table-space kitchen featuring Italian travertine tile, Portuguese hand painted backsplash, beautiful custom pantry/dining closet, farmhouse sink, double-oven, and stainless-steel appliances with a triple-door fridge. The kitchen connects to the Great Room with a brick GAS FIREPLACE and plantation shutters, as well as to a truly incredible large three-season covered SCREENED PORCH big enough for sitting AND dining areas, plus an attached open deck (maintenance-free Brazilian hardwood) with space to grill and sip coffee at a bistro table. Upstairs, enter through elegant custom double doors to the primary suite, a true retreat, with a separate sitting area and a bath with a step-up jacuzzi soaking tub for stargazing through the skylight, separate glass shower, and beautiful details like inlaid decorative tiles and gilded swan faucet. The distinctive rounded turret room above is ideal for an artist, inspired writer or one seeking some deep quiet for remote work. The fourth bedroom has been repurposed into a sophisticated dressing room with plenty of beautiful built-in closets and shelves. The home’s basement, a walkout lower level, serves as an additional hobby area, bedroom, or OFFICE SPACE, complete with a full bath and a small wet bar, plus a cedar closet and extra storage room. Finally, step out to the truly private backyard oasis with an above-ground pool and patio with pleasant views for lounging or hosting. Enjoy a two-car detached garage, with electric for that hobbyist. Own in a desirable and established community with lots of new growth (new brewery and another cafe coming!), centralized location, walking distance to coffee shops, grocery, Farmer’s Market, parades and community events, and all that Kensington has to offer while also being convenient to Bethesda, 495, ICC, and the Marc. For that discerning buyer who has been waiting for that one of a kind, unforgettable home, this one is it!

Silver Spring is an unincorporated community and census-designated place (CDP) located inside the Capital Beltway in Montgomery County, Maryland. It had a population of 76,716 according to 2013 estimates by the United States Census Bureau, making it the fourth most populous place in Maryland, after Baltimore, Columbia, and Germantown. Silver Spring consists of the following neighborhoods; Downtown Silver Spring, East Silver Spring, Woodside, Woodside Park, North Hills Sligo Park, Long Branch, Montgomery Knolls, Franklin Knolls, Indian Spring Terrace, Indian Spring Village, Clifton Park Village, New Hampshire Estates, and Oakview. The urbanized, oldest, and southernmost part of Silver Spring is a major business hub that lies at the north apex of Washington, D.C. The community has recently undergone a significant renaissance, with the addition of major retail, residential, and office developments. Silver Spring takes its name from a mica-flecked spring discovered there in 1840 by Francis Preston Blair, who subsequently bought much of the surrounding land. Acorn Park, tucked away in an area of south Silver Spring away from the main downtown area, is believed to be the site of the original spring.

 

At the beginning of the 21st century, downtown Silver Spring began to see the results of redevelopment. Several city blocks near City Place Mall were completely reconstructed to accommodate a new outdoor shopping plaza called “Downtown Silver Spring. Beginning in 2004, the downtown redevelopment was marketed locally with the “silver sprung” advertising campaign, which declared on buses and in print ads that Silver Spring had “sprung” and was ready for business.In June 2007, The New York Times noted that downtown was “enjoying a renaissance, a result of public involvement and private investment that is turning it into an arts and entertainment center.” Downtown Silver Spring hosts several entertainment, musical, and ethnic festivals, the most notable of which are the Silverdocs documentary film festival held each June and hosted by Discovery Communications and the American Film Institute, as well as the annual Thanksgiving Day Parade (Saturday before Thanksgiving) for Montgomery County. The Silver Spring Jazz Festival has become the biggest event of the year drawing 20,000 people to the free festival held on the second Saturday in September. Silver Spring is serviced by the Brunswick Line of the MARC Train, Metrorail Red Line, Metrobus, Ride On, and the free VanGo. The bus terminal at the Silver Spring Rail Station is the busiest in the entire Washington Metro Area and provides connections between several transit services, including those mentioned above. This transit facility serves nearly 60,000 passengers daily.
