The house at 30 Quincy St. in Chevy Chase, Md., priced at $2,095,000, looks like a cottage straight out of a fable with its stacked stone chimney, flagstone walkway, flower boxes and woodsy setting.
Built in 1922, the property includes professional landscaping with a swimming pool and patio in the back yard. Inside, the family room has a sloping beamed ceiling with skylights, transom windows and a fireplace with a brick hearth.
The family room opens to the kitchen, which has white cabinets, some of them with open shelving, butcher block counters and stainless-steel appliances. The main level also has a dining room with a fireplace and built-in shelving, a living room with views of the back yard and trees and a tiny cozy den for reading on winter days.
The sunroom, which has walls of windows, can function as an office or as a guest bedroom.
The four-level house has five bedrooms and five bathrooms, all of which have been updated. Every window has plantation shutters. The master suite includes a walk-in closet and a sitting area and a bay window, along with a marble bathroom. The upper level has a bedroom with sloped ceilings and the lower level is finished for additional living space and includes an exercise area, a powder room, a recreation room, a workshop and storage areas.
There will be an open house Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m.
