E-mail this article \ Print this article

This three-story colonial in Rockville’s Twinbrook community is being marketed as a “new home,“ as the owner has completely rebuilt the home that now offers over 4,100 finished square feet with upgrades in nearly every room.

Fresh plantings add appeal to the home’s façade, which has a columned portico with a decorative balcony above.

The front doors, with leaded glass inserts, open to a two-story foyer with crown and chair rail moldings, wainscoting and hardwood floors that run throughout most of the main level, including the flanking study and living room.

The latter, to the left, features crown and chair rail moldings, and a quad of windows. It opens to the dining room with extensive moldings and a wrought iron⁄crystal chandelier that hangs from a ceiling medallion.

The kitchen is spacious with cherry cabinetry, granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. A desk area and a large island are also featured. The attached breakfast nook has a designer chandelier and double French doors to the yard. A detached, two-car garage is back here.

The kitchen area opens to the family room, which has a lighted ceiling fan, and a fireplace surrounded with detailed molding and flanked by windows. Two sets of French doors open to the yard.

The study at the front of the home has crown molding, recessed lights and two windows. A coat closet and a powder room are nearby, rounding out the main level.

The second level presents three bedrooms, including two spacious suites. The master suite is grand with a fireplace and a TV niche above, a lighted ceiling fan, his⁄hers walk-in closets with organizers, and two French doors. The sumptuous bath has porcelain floor, stone shower and (jetted) tub surround, and a slate vanity with dual bowls. A linen closet completes the large, modern bath.

The other suite has two walk-in closets and a quad of windows, as well as a lighted fan. It connects to a dual-entry hall bath, which has ceramic floor and a stone-topped double vanity.

The third room has two closets, a lighted ceiling fan and a trio of windows. A laundry closet is also on this floor, which has wall-to-wall carpeting in all the bedrooms.

The top level is home to a private suite ideal for an apartment, or an inlaw or nanny suite. It has carpet, a pair of lighted ceiling fans and four windows, including a pair of deep dormers. The attached full bath has a double vanity.

The home has a bright and airy feel with the generous windows throughout, including those at the mid-landing of the two flights of stairs.
