One of Country Club Hills most anticipated sales. Only two families since the home was built in 1939 have been able call this cherished homesite "Home". This beautiful Tudor Colonial sits in the shadow of the Washington Golf and Country Club, just off Rock Spring Road. Don't be surprised if you find an errant golf ball in the front yard! The home was designed for entertaining and rings of gracious sophistication and the romance of Old England. In 1960 the original owners desiring more space, but wanting to retain their current lot had all but three walls of the original home taken down and created the "English Provincial home of their dreams." Probably the first CCH major expansion! Currently the home offers over 6,500 of finished interior living space. An open two story foyer greets you as you enter with views to the level rear yard thru the dining room French doors. The center of the home is the oversized dinning room, where Clint Eastwood filmed the final scene for his movie "J Edgar" staring Leonardo DiCaprio. To the right of the foyer is a large two level living room centered with a marble fireplace surround and formal mantle and trim. Both rooms feature high ceilings, recessed lights, dentil molding, wainscoting, and hardwood floors. There is also an enclosed Florida room off the lower living room area thru French doors. A large eat-in kitchen with granite counter tops, recessed lights, stainless steel appliances and oversized gas range with built-in wall mounted pot filler faucet is the perfect place for family gatherings. Thru the butler's pantry and on the rear of the home is a large year-round family room with radiant heated floors. There is a two car garage just off the foyer with direct access as well as a half bath with hand painted wall paper called "Knee Deep in Daisey's" by 1960's Georgetown decorator Marion Welch. Ascending the stairs to the upper level are beautiful leaded glass windows, which can also be found in the upper level library and far left bedroom. At the top of the stairs is the Tudor library with wood paneling, pegged wood floors and built-in book shelves and storage. The upper level gallery is open to the foyer below and provides access to the library and other upper level bedrooms. Each large bedroom has it's own private updated bath and ample closet storage. The owner's suite is a true sanctuary complete with a private sitting room, dressing room area, and access to a roof top balcony with views of the rear yard. The sitting room features built-in shelving, and the owner's bath features a separate shower, soaking tub, and extra vanity. The custom designed elevator was installed in 2016 and features windows allowing natural light to fill both the elevator as well as each floor it services. The housing unit for the elevator was crafted to blend in seamlessly with the existing home's English Tudor architecture. Above the main part of the upper level is an unfinished attic space with high ceilings, and wide floors. With a few simple modifications, some dormer windows this space could easily be transformed into a fourth level for more living space! The lower level is where you find the fourth bedroom and fourth full bath. The space mimics the main level and there is a lower and upper level rec-room filled with natural daylight. The upper level rec-room features a built-in wet bar area with designer granite and separate refrigerator. The lower level rec-room can easily accommodate a billiards or ping pong table The laundry room has been reimagined and features state of the art new front load washer and dryer. The bonus storage or hobby room offers stair access to the rear yard and features an oversized window to allow for natural light. The rear yard features multiple terraces, a fish pond and vintage stone outdoor fireplace area. The yard is fenced, mostly level and was chosen as a place winner of the Rock Spring Garden Club. There are many mature plantings as well.
