The lower level has a separate entrance and offers a rec room, bedroom, full bath, kitchenette and office area. An L-shaped deck off the kitchen sits above a flagstone patio and steps run along the backyard to a one-car garage and parking pad.

Updated in Upper Chevy Chase
Another 3,200-plus square-foot option comes in Upper Chevy Chase, this time complete with a white picket fence and a covered front porch with a bench swing. The living room has a gas fireplace between windows above built-in shelving units, and the formal dining room has a built-in corner cabinet, although the remainder of the home skews more contemporary. The kitchen has a marble-topped breakfast bar island with matching countertops and matching backsplash between the stainless steel hood and the stove. The adjacent family room also has a gas fireplace, and in between, a door leads out to the deck. The lower level has a step down rec room, ample flex space, a wine cellar, and walks out to a covered patio and parking pad; there is also an interior garage/storage room.
