I’ve listed and sold a lot of homes in my ten years of being a Realtor. My children, particularly my son who is now 16, barely remembers a time when I didn’t work in real estate and he wasn’t dragged along to check on a listing or open a house for something. Will’s become a house expert in his own right. I have to commend him for having really good home sensibilities. He’s learned to judge a property’s condition, assess the livability of a lay-out, and he’s an excellent judge of curb appeal and location. According to Will, there’s no better place to live than Chevy Chase where you can walk to the grocery, Wheeler’s Pharmacy, Suggins, school, Ecton Park — everywhere a boy or adult could need to go. And, nothing is better than a stone house unlike any of its neighbors with a real front porch and a excellent back yard of entertaining.
436 Dudley Road ranks high on his list of “best homes” or more accurately “can we buy this home and live here?” list. I’m tempted to say yest to this one myself. 436 Dudley has the best of quintessential Chevy Chase charm. It’s been beautifully renovated and maintained by its current owners. A few details I find particularly attractive is the enormous pantry off the kitchen that houses a second refrigerator and an abundant amount of storage, the beautifully renovated kitchen with gas range (a must for anyone who loves to cook) and the open feel of the first-floor living areas. The first floor bedrooms and bath are private and comfortably-sized with lots of nice closet space and beautiful floors. Upstairs, the sellers have renovated the and updated to make an impressive and functional suite that can be utilized in a variety of ways. The bath has been completely remodeled and a huge closet has been added and organized off of the master bedroom. There’s an additional bedroom that works beautifully as an office or could be nursery and a bonus room that could serve as 2nd floor family room, exercise room, or office.
So much to offer in such a great location!
