Secure that prestigious Tanglewood address with an attractively updated four-bedroom house sitting back on a 21,000-square-foot lot with mature trees. The one-story home, built in 1952, is now for sale at $1,375,000.
Located at 5688 Green Tree Road, the traditional style one-story residence now boasts renovations such as soaring entry ceilings with porcelain tile flooring, open-concept living and kitchen areas and large formal rooms with custom shutters. A kitchen makeover includes quartz countertops, mother-of-pearl backsplash, abundant storage, undercounter lighting and stainless steel appliances. A breakfast nook, wet bar and wine storage are located just off the family room.
Here, the original wooden floors are restained and refinished, and exposed beams are painted in a complementary accent color. A wood-burning fireplace anchors the large room, which enjoys views of the back yard with brick patio and courtyard via double French doors. A nearby powder room is redone with gold-hued appointments.
The master suite has private access to the courtyard, and the master bath, also a re-do, features marble countertops with dual sinks and a center vanity space. A oversized oval tub and separate enclosed seamless shower are arranged on the other side of the room.
Shuttered windows bring natural light into the other three bedrooms, all complete with refurbished hard wood flooring. The house has two full baths and two half-baths.
A wrought iron fence built this year designates the brick courtyard with fountain, part of the landscaping designed by William Glauser of Glauser & Company. An 8-foot wooden fence, also a recent addition, creates privacy in the adjoining green space, with plenty of room for a swimming pool. The two-car garage with gated side driveway entrance is attached.
