This 1906 New England River Home is located on the coveted east side of the George Washington Parkway in a country setting. Originally built as a summer cottage sitting on the banks of the Potomac River, it was moved in the 1930s to its current location. As the family grew over the years, the home was expanded multiple times. Currently sitting on a tranquil .76-acre parcel with idyllic lawn and river views, its just 20 minutes to downtown DC and 5 minutes to Old Town. This captivating home is a timeless gem that has been recently renovated blending classic charm with modern comfort. The owners have cherished their family home and are now offering it to others who will have the same passion.

Approaching the property, you're greeted by a picturesque setting and lush green landscaping with mature trees framing the residence.
For those who cherish outdoor living, a sun porch and back porch offer idyllic retreats for enjoying the natural beauty that surrounds the property. Whether sipping morning coffee as the sun rises over the Potomac River or unwinding with a glass of wine as the day comes to a close, these tranquil spaces invite you to connect with nature and find solace in the serenity of your home.

Upon stepping inside, you're welcomed by nearly 4400 square feet of thoughtfully designed living space, where every detail evokes a sense of warmth, family, and character.

The main level boasts a seamless flow from room to room, interior sunroom and timeless exterior porches for enjoying outdoor living, a formal living room featuring a deep woodburning fireplace and a gracious dining room, ideal for hosting gatherings plus a large parlor for overflow entertaining.

The heart of the home lies in the expansive kitchen and family room. A center island provides ample space for meal preparation and an adjacent family room with an office/ homework nook tucked off to the side is the perfect spot for families to hang together.

Upstairs, three generously proportioned bedrooms await, including a luxurious primary suite with a spa inspired bath and walk in closet and built ins, providing a private sanctuary for rest and relaxation. An additional recently renovated full bath serves the remaining bedrooms, ensuring comfort and convenience for family and guests alike.

The lower level extends the living space, which is walk out and above grade plus fully finished. This offers great versatility and flexibility to suit your lifestyle. Here, a private bedroom suite awaits, providing a tranquil retreat for guests or multigenerational living. A garden room adds to the allure, offering a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor living and providing a peaceful space to cultivate your green thumb or simply enjoy the beauty of nature.
