Welcome home to Elm Drive!
An impressive custom-built colonial, this exceptional property offers a myriad of highly desirable features typically difficult to find all in one place. Upon entering the warm and inviting home, you'll be greeted by the endless amounts of natural light that floods in through the windows located at every turn.
The clever layout and smart design choices make this 5,300+ sqft home feel even larger than it is, with a spacious and airy feel throughout.
An elegant residence perfect for those who love to entertain, you'll find infinite space for hosting gatherings both inside and out. The recently renovated kitchen features real wood cabinetry and carefully selected top-of-the-line GE appliances, including double ovens (one convection) with a 10-pass hidden bake element in both- a baker's dream! The gas cooktop has five burners, including 2 power burners, 2 equal heat griddle arrangement burners, and a simmer burner- excellent for cooking big meals. A separate dedicated office on the main floor offers both privacy and easy access to the living areas. It can also double up as another bedroom if desired.
Making your way upstairs, you'll find a central, oversized loft that can be used for any number of purposes including a kid's playroom, arts and crafts space, meditation and yoga area, etc. Surrounding the loft are all four upper level bedrooms- each of which offers walk-in closets, ensuring ample storage space for everyone. You'll feel a sense of calm as you enter the primary suite, which at over 700 sqft, is truly a luxurious retreat away from it all. Featuring a massive dressing room spanning over 200 sqft and a significantly sized spa-like bathroom, this special space that one that is hard to come by!
Heading down to the expansive basement, you'll find the high ceilings give it an open "non-basement" feel. In addition to the bedroom, full bath and living space, there is also a fully equipped kitchenette and a separate entrance, making it the perfect space for an in-law or au-pair suite. Two "bonus rooms" provide for even more living space and flexibility with how you choose to use them- perhaps for a music room or a podcast studio, a home gym, or even another office.
Stepping outside, the home is surrounded by thoughtfully designed landscaping that blossoms year-round, providing lush green views from every window inside. The fully fenced-in yard gives a sense of privacy and security as you take in the serene outdoor setting from either the newly refinished decks on the main floor, or from the second-floor balcony, also just refinished.
Other notable features include ample storage space on each floor (three linen closets upstairs!), a new dual-zoned HVAC system, new paint and carpet throughout, new light fixtures, hardwired security cameras, and a location that makes you feel like you're tucked away in your own little oasis while actually being right in the heart of it all.
Conveniently situated with easy access to the metro and various highways, your daily commute will be a breeze. Being less than 10 minutes from Old Town, there's no shortage of shopping and dining options. For nature enthusiasts, you'll find the river just down the street and a dozen parks within a ten-mile radius. And with two public libraries just a stone's throw away, there really is no shortage of entertainment options near Elm Drive.
This gracious home truly has it all and is ready for its loving new owners to enjoy everything it offers!
