Four Floors of Living in Chevy Chase

It may be difficult to believe that the owner of this semi-detached Chevy Chase house, who is also the listing agent, is parting with this home once you see the enviable master suite, with its massive walk-in closet and private balcony. The 3,400 square-foot house has a total of six bedrooms, including a basement au-pair suite with separate entrance. On the main floor, a large entry foyer provides sightlines to the back of the home and a chef’s kitchen opens onto the family room. Both the family room and kitchen also lead to outdoor spaces, including a small rear deck overlooking a paved patio space.
