Located in Barnaby Woods, home is on large 9,300 square foot lot
Some homes in Chevy Chase were built to impress and this one does just that. Constructed in the 1940s and expertly renovated, this graceful home is the perfect integration of old and new. Situated on a rare large lot, the home an entertainer’s dream, with a beautifully landscaped, tiered backyard made for large cocktail parties, as well as intimate family events.
Located at 6342 32nd Street Northwest in the desirable Barnaby Woods section of Chevy Chase, the home includes five bedrooms, four full and one half bathrooms and 4,500 square feet of living space. It is owned and listed by Kimberly Cestari in the Chevy Chase office of Long & Foster | Christie’s International Real Estate. This gorgeous and comfortable home is on a quiet street, yet is close to all the shopping, dining, culture and business opportunities that Washington, D.C., offers.
As you arrive, you’ll first notice the well-manicured flat front yard and long, custom walkway leading to this stately home. On the main level, you’re welcomed into a gracious foyer, with turned staircase and twinkling crystal chandelier. Serve before-dinner drinks in the elegant living room with large windows and gorgeous hardwood floors. Connecting the living room with the kitchen is a butler’s pantry, where you’ll find a sink, wine chiller and plenty of cabinets and counter space.
It will be easy to cook for a crowd or prepare family meals in the chic, white, sun-filled gourmet kitchen. This room, with its simple, clean lines is well-equipped with gas cooking, double ovens and warming drawer. The kitchen has gorgeous Statuarietto honed marble countertops. The large island seats three and has storage on all four sides. The kitchen also includes a built-in desk.
The family room adjoins the kitchen and has built-in bookcases and a gas fireplace with custom cabinetry to conceal your flat-screen television. In warm weather, open the French doors from the family room to the deck for al-fresco dining with a vista view of the sloped, terraced backyard and tall trees.
Your dinner parties and family celebrations will be remembered in the dining room beside a crackling fire in the wood-burning fireplace. On this level, there is also an office and powder room with a Porcher vanity.
Upstairs, you’ll find a large owner’s suite with walk-in closet and bathroom with Carrera tile and high-quality Waterworks faucets. On this level, there are also three other comfortable bedrooms and two updated bathrooms.
Your overnight guests will enjoy the privacy of the spacious third-floor bedroom painted in a calming blue hue. This level also has a private office with two windows, perfect for working from home or quiet reflection.
The walk-out lower level has hardwood floors with plenty of recessed lighting and a full bath, which would work well as an au pair suite. You’ll also find a large laundry room, a craft room and a one-car garage for storage. A door from the craft room leads to a fenced and lower level covered patio to relax and read a good book. You’ll love spending time with family and friends in this unique outdoor space while watching the children play in the built-in sandbox, slide, swings and play house.
If you love flowers and gardening, this home is ideal as it has a convenient gardening shed with running water and electricity. You’ll definitely want to plan a spring cocktail party in the yard when the azalea bushes are in bloom. The professionally landscaped and hardscaped tiered yard with dramatic lighting, built-in fire pit and a stream is an enchanting place to view or entertain guests.
