Robert Jenets - Washingtonian's Best


4908 Scarsdale Road

The handsome, quality-built colonial pictured above has been conscientiously maintained and upgraded by caring owners for the last 28 years. Enjoying an excellent location on a wide, little-traveled residential street in the highly desirable neighborhood of Sumner, this wonderful home is an easy commute to Washington DC, Northern Virginia and bustling downtown Bethesda. Nearby attractions include the Crescent Trail (for hiking/biking from Bethesda to Georgetown), Glen Echo Park, Kenwood Country Club, Little Falls Park and Library, restaurants and shopping. Featuring an updated, custom kitchen and a family room on the first floor, what was originally the four-bedroom second level of the house has been thoughtfully modified, combining one of the bedrooms with the master to offer a master suite. There are three fireplaces, including one in the unfinished basement, which has much potential for finishing into more terrific living space. With classic architecture, high-quality construction and an enviable location, this is more than just an attractive house - it is everything you could expect in a home. Enjoy your visit!
