119 FOREST AVENUE, ROCKVILLE, MD 20850
Rare opportunity in Rockville's highly desired historic West End neighborhood, very close to Rockville Town Center and the Rockville Metro/MARC station! Gorgeous 1928 English Arts & Crafts style cottage, with nearly all its original details and charm, including beautiful oak and heart pine floors, yet with modern systems and thoughtful updating. The versatile floor plan flows nicely, with 2,800 square feet of space on 2 floors, and features 4 bedrooms (2 on the main level and 2 on the 2nd floor) and 3 full bathrooms (2 on the main level -- 1 of those with the original tub and tile floor -- and 1 on the 2nd floor). The main level also includes a large formal living room with attractive wood-burning fireplace; comfortable family room; spacious, light-filled dining room; fully updated kitchen with attached breakfast room; and small screened porch off the side door. Upstairs, in addition to the 2 bedrooms and 1 full bathroom, are a large storage room that could be used as added space for the adjoining bedroom and/or transformed into a large en suite bathroom, plus a large flat rooftop overlooking the backyard which could become a lovely rooftop deck with modest modifications/investment. The walk-out unfinished basement is clean and dry, and provides roughly 1,750 square feet of space for storage and/or other uses. Outside, there's a detached 2-car garage, with additional storage space above. The house sits on a level 18,594 square foot corner lot and the inviting backyard is fenced and shaded by trees. Updates to the house by the current owners include: new electric panel and 200 amp service in 2002; fireplace and firebox rebuilt in 2012; new roof in 2016; and, in 2018, a new super efficient Navien combi-boiler (model NCB-240E) which serves as both a tankless hot water heater and boiler for the home's comfortable radiator heating system (there is also a separate 2-zone central a/c system). Served by well-regarded schools (Richard Montgomery HS, Julius West MS, and Beall ES). Overall, this is a truly special house, perfect for the buyer desiring the character, personality and history of a unique and exceptional period home, coupled with modern conveniences, and in a great location.
