Located in the desirable Flint Hill community in Bannockburn, Bethesda this exquisite 6 bedroom, 4.5 bath Craftsman-style home delivers over 6,000 square feet of living space and a private .58 acre lot backing to woodlands with tranquil wooded views. The beauty begins outside with a tailored stone and Hardiplank exterior, 3-car garage, and spectacular outdoor living spaces with a covered front porch, sundeck, flagstone patio with stone fireplace. Inside, an open floor plan, high ceilings, warm hardwood floors, 2 fireplaces, custom built-ins, a walk-in closet in every bedroom, dual staircases, crisp moldings, and an abundance of windows creating a light and airy atmosphere demonstrate no detail has been overlooked. *** Wide plank hardwood floors welcome you in the foyer and usher you into the living room on your right where windows on two walls including a big box-bay window fills the space with sunlight. A butler’s station introduces the formal dining room which is accented by wainscoting, a candelabra chandelier, and a French style door that opens to the side-deck. The gourmet kitchen will stir the senses with gleaming granite countertops, an abundance of 42” traditional and glass-front cabinetry, and professional grade stainless steel appliances— including a Bertazzoni gas range, custom vented hood, GE Monogram refrigerator/freezer and Jenn-Air built-in microwave and wall oven. A huge center island with prep sink and triple pendant lights provides additional working surface and bar seating, as a planning station and an extra-large walk-in pantry add convenience. The sun-drenched breakfast area with serene views is ideal for daily dining and the cozy family room beckons with an inviting floor to ceiling stone fireplace. Here, sliding glass doors grant access to the wrap around flagstone patio with an amazing stone fireplace outside, encircled by wrought-iron fencing with steps to the grassy yard sheltered by majestic trees—a layout built for entertaining or relaxation! Back inside, a beautiful library with built-in bookcases and a 2nd fireplace with marble surround, and a powder room with furniture style vanity topped in granite complement the main level. *** Ascend the staircase to the landing and onward to the light-filled owner’s suite boasting walls of windows, crown molding, a large walk-in closet, and a separate sitting room/nursery. Pamper yourself in the en suite bath featuring a granite topped dual-sink vanity with make-up area, a private water closet, sumptuous soaking tub, and an oversized glass enclosed shower—all enhanced by spa-toned tile with decorative inlay. Down the hall, 2 bright and cheerful bedrooms, each with walk-in closets, share access to a well-appointed Jack and Jill bathroom, while the laundry room with custom cabinets, granite topped counters, and front loading machines eases the daily task.
