Your next home could be on prestigious West Beach Drive overlooking Rock Creek Park! This home’s position offers privacy and access to nature via the large architectural windows which bring the outdoors in, a Mid-Century Modern principle. Walkability to Rock Creek Shopping Center just a block away! There are not many locations in the city where you get over 4,000 square feet spread across 2 spacious floors, a garage, and almost 1/5th of an acre adjacent to a national park. The main level has 2 distinct wings adjoined by the foyer. On 1 side is a large living room with a fireplace as its centerpiece, a dining room ready to host, a chef’s kitchen with a Wolf gas range, a double oven, a pantry, solid wood cabinets, and new quartz countertops. Off the kitchen is a large eat-in kitchen and space for your home office.
On the other side of the home is the sleeping wing with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. All 3 bedrooms are spacious. Storage challenges will be a thing of the past with 8 closets on this wing of the home! The lower level has a large rec room with multiple zones for relaxing, playing, working from home, connecting, homeschooling, and entertaining. Also off this space is a second fireplace, a laundry center, and a kitchenette saving you a trip upstairs when you want a drink or a snack. On this floor is the 4th bedroom with a luxurious bathroom that has both a standup shower and an imported Italian soaking tub. A mudroom, 2 more large closets, and a 2 car garage complete this home. The backyard is fenced with an extensive slate patio, a brick oven, and a flat green yard with professionally landscaped flower beds. Minutes from downtown DC, Bethesda, and downtown Silver Spring.
Walk to shops, restaurants, serene trails of Rock Creek Park, and the Purple Line’s upcoming Laytonsville Station. Walk 2 blocks to Rock Creek Shopping Center, a home away from home where everyone will know your name as you grab breakfast or dinner at the famous Parkway Deli, play cards while eating pizza at the Daily Dish, grab milk late at night at the family-owned and operated Corner Market and Pharmacy. Within the Shepherd Park Elementary, Alice Deal Middle School, and Wilson High School cluster (FREE Pre-K 3 and Pre-K 4) and close to DCI if you’re seeking the language immersion route. Also within a short walk to the Lowell School playground/pool, and the athletic fields and soon to be completed Community Center at Shepherd Park.
Places are often named after obvious geographic features. For example, Twinbrook, in Rockville, Md., reflects two streams that flowed across the original community. So it’s not surprising that Colonial Village in Northwest Washington is a community of predominantly Colonial-style houses. The stately redbrick, painted-brick and stone single-family homes sit on gently rolling tree-lined streets that curve with the natural topography. The neighborhood is nestled alongside Rock Creek Park on the north, south and western edges. Colonial Village is home to roughly 1,500 residents, including D.C. Mayor Muriel E. Bowser who bought a house there last year.
The community is shaped like a butterfly and sits practically at the northern tip of Northwest blending with North Portal Estates on the north and Shepherd Park on the east. In fact, the three neighborhoods are so closely entwined they share community news and views via the quarterly Shepherd Park News. The Blairs Shopping Center on East-West Highway by Colesville Road is minutes away over the line in Silver Spring. There’s Giant Food/Pharmacy, cleaners, barbershop and Peet’s Coffee & Tea. Downtown Bethesda, with dozens of shops, restaurants and service outlets, is also close. Colonial Village, Zip code 20012, is in the northern tip of Northwest bordered on the north, south and west by Rock Creek Park. On the east it’s bounded by 16th Street. From Colonial Village, it’s a short commute to downtown D.C., and Friendship Heights, Chevy Chase Circle and Bethesda are “just a straight shot.”
