Overview

Located in the sought-after, quiet neighborhood of Beverly Hills, this contemporary sanctuary offers buyers a true turn-key experience. A complete overhaul of the existing structure in 2019, the sellers thoughtfully designed a sleek, modern home with practicality in mind. Elements of the original 1930s structure still come through - the original wood-burning fireplace with classic surround now features a touch of new, the added marble piece lining the mantle creates an understated (and easy to clean) design.

The living, dining, kitchen, and sun-soaked bonus room establish an open flow across the main level. An expansive kitchen, complete with state-of-the-art Bosh...

appliances, allows space for the whole family to help with meal preparation. Plenty of cabinet storage keeps the luxurious quartz countertops clear and highlights the subtle grey subway tile backsplash. Natural light bathes the whole interior, adding to the airy feel throughout. The bonus room leads right out to the secluded backyard - ideal for hosting summer gatherings. A main level bedroom with attached half-bath is tucked away, adding a sense of privacy. Create a retreat for overnight guests (adding a shower to make a full bath would be easy), or design your ultimate at-home office, with close proximity to the kitchen and backyard for quick breaks. High-quality, easy to maintain laminate floors cover both the main level and upstairs hallways and speak to the contemporary style. All windows and appliances, with the exception of the lower-level washer and dryer, were installed in 2019.

The upper level, completely new in the 2019 remodel, houses four additional bedrooms and two full bathrooms. All bedrooms are cozily carpeted and well-spaced, providing privacy, and all rooms boast spacious closets, the primary offering the deepest walk-in. A discreet laundry closet on the bedroom level contains the newer washer + dryer set, making convenient laundry days! Quartz counters shine in both full baths, and the sellers took great care to echo the original black and white floor tile from the original home design.

The lower level features a tidy, unfinished basement and utility room - ideal for storage. A utility room offers a second washer + dryer set, so multiple loads of laundry can be knocked out at once.

Expect brilliant colors and florals in the spring and summer time, the yard at 406 conceals a symphony of blue, white, purple and pink hues, not to mention the luscious green grass, trees and bushes in the landscaping and side garden. The perfect place to entertain, with brick patio space for chairs, table, and grilling equipment and plenty of play space for furry members of the family. A conveying castle play set stands tall, waiting for fresh imaginations to bring it to life. A former owner utilized a hot tub, for which the outlet connection still stands. Another hot tub can be installed, or owners of electric cars could easily convert it into a charging station!

Off-street parking includes one-car detached garage with additional storage space and a long driveway that could house up to five additional cars, with guest parking available on the street.

Tennessee Ave is a quiet street - it connects to a one-way cul-de-sac, diminishing its likelihood as a commuter "cut through." Close to Glebe Rd and I-395 access makes it great for traveling to DC, the Pentagon, and Arlington. Potomac Yards Shopping is a 9-minute drive down Glebe Rd, offering Target, Giant, Old Navy, and more - plus the new Metro station at Potomac Yards is scheduled to be completed this Fall 2022! Old Town, Del Ray are minutes away for endless shopping, dining, and entertainment. 406 resides in the Charles Barrett Elementary and George Washington Middle school zone, and is a less than 10 min walk to Beverly Park, affectionately known as "The Pit."
