About This Property

STILL HOLDING OPEN HOUSE THIS SUNDAY, AUGUST 18TH FROM 1-3. CURRENT CONTRACT ON THE HOUSE IS CONTINGENT. Searching for a home with quiet charm, large and inviting rooms, a wraparound porch overlooking Rock Creek Park, nearby walking trails but still within a mile of the Metro? Then this distinctive Victorian-era 3 bedroom house is the place for you. Named ~Sunset Cottage~ because of the gorgeous views, it~s tucked away in a one-of-a-kind neighborhood in Silver Spring, close to shopping in Kensington and Chevy Chase. From its original hardwood floors to its tall ceilings, from its pine- paneled living and dining rooms, to the lovely stone fireplace in the Family Room ~with its wood beam ceiling--every corner of this unique abode invites its lucky new owners to make this house their home.Originally built by the Thomas Wilson family in 1903, the house was one of several in the community occupied by senior staff of the then Bureau of American Ethnology of the National Museum, the forerunner of the Smithsonian Institution. There have been only two subsequent owners of the property. Enjoy this special location where you can step out of your front door and be in Rock Creek Park! Whether it is going for a run on the trail, taking a walk on various paths along Beach Drive, or heading to a nearby playground, there are so many options, all of which are beautiful under the canopy of trees. For transportation, there is a Ride One Bus stop a short distance away plus you can walk to the Metro. You have to see this well-priced treasure to believe it.
