One of the few detached homes in the gem of a neighborhood that is North Cleveland Park, this elegant Colonial has many other unique features. Gracious living is offered over 4 light-filled levels, and the almost 7,000 square foot flat lot offers plenty of space to relax out of doors, too. A covered portico welcomes you to a sizable foyer and many period details such as hardwood floors, beautiful millwork, and stained glass windows. Off the sizable living room with a gas fireplace is a stunning sunroom, and the dining room, which would comfortably host a large dinner party, is connected to a renovated kitchen with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and a rare pantry!
The second level boasts a primary suite worthy of a king-sized bed with 3 closets, a connected cozy paneled library/study with a wood burning fireplace (and secret cedar walk-in closet), and a luxurious bath with both soaker tub and shower. This level is rounded out by a sizable second bedroom with marble ensuite bath. The bright third level is large enough to be used as a third bedroom plus either workspace or playroom, and also includes a full bathroom and storage. Meanwhile, the finished lower level is perfect for entertaining or relaxing, featuring a large recreation room with built-ins, a bar, sauna, laundry, a full bath and walk-out bonus room suitable for indoor-outdoor flow or for a fitness room.
The deep and beautifully landscaped backyard includes a 3-car garage, and the home is situated along the African American Heritage Trail as part of the Wormley Family Estate site. 3530 Van Ness is a short distance to many restaurants and cafes including favorites Surfside, Cava, 2Amy’s, La Piquette, Bread Furst, Little Red Fox, and Bucks Fishing & Camping (to name a few). There are many neighborhood amenities nearby including only 0.4 miles to the Van Ness Metro on the Red Line, convenient shopping at Target & Whole Foods, the now open CityRidge with Wegmans and Tatte, the bustling commercial area at Cathedral Commons, and excellent recreation at the newly open Hearst Park and Pool. This home has it all!
