Perks for the Parents

This luxurious family home in a quiet Kensington neighborhood includes a large backyard with playground and plenty of space and privacy for the whole family. The open concept living and dining creates room to play and relax. There is a fully-equipped kitchen with family dining area, an office/work area, and a total of 4 elegant bedrooms with raised ceilings. A preferred babysitter can be arranged upon request. Well located for visiting Washington DC, a short metro ride away.

Why Kids Love it

This is a great property for kids of all ages: older children can range around the large fenced yard and younger children will love the backyard playground with swings and slide. The basement entertainment room makes for a perfect play area or facilitates family movie night without infringing on living space. The neighborhood has good cycle paths and nature trails, and there is a nearby Soccerplex, mini golf and a public library.

This renovated 4-bedroom, 5-bathroom home is exquisitely appointed and includes a 2-car garage and fenced back yard with playground, climbing tree and shed.

Style Notes

Light and luxurious. This family home has elegant modern design touches including vaulted ceilings, glass tables, and ornate beds, yet relaxed and livable tone for a comfortable family stay. Marble countertops, white subway tiles and chrome fixtures adorn the kitchen. We love the large-scale modern art, cowhide lounge chair and oversized Bertoia style diamond chair.

Kensington, Maryland

Community spirit and charming streets

Charming Kensington is a classic small town, just outside Washington DC, with a sense of community, farmer’s markets, a children’s library and playgrounds to enjoy. Just half an hour north of DC, you can be exploring the Smithsonian in the morning before returning to the coffee shops, art galleries and friendly streets of downtown Kensington in the afternoon. Don’t miss bike parades on the fourth of July, food truck nights on a Thursday and parades, shows and races through the year.
