Agents, please read Remarks! WDC Records Out-dated. Correct total SF is min. 3707; Below current area median price. This totally charming Nantucket Home and small, screened Retreat House were built and renovated on a quiet, blissfully located 1-block street. Between the structures are an entrancing waterfall, sustainable native plants, outdoor lighting, flat spaces of grass, pebbles, garden, deck, a wisteria walkway, and 2 large vegetable garden boxes. All this off French Doors into the favorite entertainment kitchen with another wood-burning fireplace. Carefully remodeled and expanded during 21 years of very attentive ownership, the most recent 2014 renovation created a restful front porch; separate street-level entrance to a good entertainment room with built-in book shelves; exercise & laundry room; computer & carpenter room; large larder & new refrigerator; and full bath. This sylvan property is tucked into Berkley, a friendly, convenient neighborhood surrounded on 3 sides by parkland and woods. Between Foxhall Road and MacArthur Blvd., it's a fabulous community of easy streets and coffee shops. Berkley is also prized for its new Palisades Library and old-fashioned fun 4th of July Palisades Parade! Of the 2 original Bedrooms on its Main Floor, 1 is currently used as an office & library. To the 2 Upper Floor Bedrooms, full bath, storage, and linen room, the owners added a delightful Master Bedroom Suite with master bathroom, 2 large walk-in closets, and lovely deck. This wonderful, sunny Nantucket-style home provides approx. 3707 SF of bright, manageable Living Space, with an additional 255 in its romantic cedar Retreat House. It's so quiet and calm here, you won't believe you're in our nation's capital and close to everything you need. Recent studies by Cox & Streeter confirm that "place matters. When given a choice, most people prefer to live close to the basics of everyday life. Increased neighborliness and home values correlate with proximity to positive community basics and reduced commute times. Residents of amenity-packed neighborhoods are more likely to say their community is an excellent place to live." It is!
