The  two-level, 5 bed/3 bath home, which is being sold “as-is,” features an open living room with cathedral ceilings, walls of glass and Goodman’s signature large brick fireplace. The house is two levels with a total 2,500 square feet. In the picture below of the living room, you can see the original wood wall that is a highlight of the entrance. (Newer carpet covers the original oak hardwood floors on the main level.)

The kitchen (vintage cabinets and countertops; newer Thermador gas range) and dining area is located just off the living room and opens to the large wrap-around deck—perfect for entertaining and enjoying the .25 acre property and the neighborhood’s natural surroundings, including the explosion of cherry blossoms in the spring.

The main floor has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, including the master suite with soaring ceilings (below).

The lower-lever features a large family room/den with second fireplace, two bedrooms, one full bathroom and a large utility/laundry and additional storage room. Sliding glass doors open to the backyard.

As part of a National Register of Historic Places-designated neighborhood, the home is eligible for tax credits for approved qualified interior and exterior rehabilitation work.

Located just outside the Beltway, the home is close to the shops, restaurants and MARC in Kensington, the Wheaton Metro and Beltway access off Connecticut Avenue. Close to the trail and playgrounds along Beach Drive in Rock Creek Park.
