Once upon a time, a home was found in Fieldston

Posted

Welcome to an incredible opportunity to own this storybook classic English Tudor home in Fieldston.

It was designed by Robert Siering back in 1929 for Ernest Damiane, at a time when the Fieldston neighborhood was being developed with homes in a variety of picturesque styles.

It has maintained its original architecture while adding modern conveniences. You’ll find pitched roofs, an arched front door, superb craftsmanship and attention to detail, hardwood floors throughout, and an old-world charm reminiscent of the English country manor.

Set back from the street on nearly a quarter-acre of land at 4745 Grosvenor Ave., the property welcomes you with beautiful trees and lush greenery. The interior offers lots of natural light.

And from the stately entrance foyer, you can appreciate the living room with its stone wood-burning fireplace, crown moldings, and French doors, which open onto a private stone deck and steps down into a grassy lawn.

The large backyard is charming and level, and has a fence with beautiful plantings for privacy. It even has its own small pond. It’s perfect for year-round entertaining.

The living room also opens into a warm and inviting wood-paneled library room.

The first floor features a large eat-in kitchen, 1.5 bathrooms, a formal dining room, and a fourth bedroom or office. The second floor boasts a luxurious primary bedroom with an en-suite bath and huge walk-in closet.

There are two other oversized bedrooms — which can be converted into three — along with a full bath.

The lower level, which has its own independent entrance, has a large finished basement with a fireplace.

If that weren’t enough, there is a separate laundry room, a half-bath and a separate home office.

There is a two-car attached garage, and a driveway that offers plenty of additional parking.

So much, we could barely fit it all into this space. But it’s available to you, right now, for $2.35 million.
