Description:

THE EDGEMOOR ESTATE <br> Captivating EDGEMOOR ESTATE welcomes you with a beautiful lush green entry via a private stone circular drive crossing over a small stone bridge and stream. At the top of the circular drive this warm and inviting custom residence greets you with a charming entryway leading into a high-ceilinged foyer designed with curved walls and entries into all of the formal rooms. <br> The residence is a love story, built by one of Washington’s most notable real estate developers as a tribute to his wife and family. The grounds are reminiscent of a mini-Versailles, with boxwood gardens and beautiful intimate seating areas throughout. Philadelphia landscape designer Anthony Holmes’ creative visions for the multiple gardens ensured year-round color and specimen plantings that offered a quiet retreat from everyday living. Sited on 1.7 acres, this is the perfect opportunity for updating the current residence, pool house and guest quarters, or to design and build a custom home and guest house. Alternative options are available to take the residence to the next level and subdivide the 1.7 acres for two separate residences. 7116 Glenbrook Drive is the third largest parcel in sought after Edgemoor and is offered for sale for the first time since its creation in 1966. <br> Elegant proportions grace each and every room in the home. From the circular foyer to the formal living room, library, sunporch and dining room, attention to detail is evident throughout. Deep windows flood the rooms with light and offer stunning views of the elegant gardens. A family room with bar, separate breakfast room and large double kitchen offer the perfect spaces for intimate everyday living. The main level of the home opens through the gardens to the pool, pool house, tennis courts and the freestanding garage with guest house above. Surprises await including a private tennis court area and a second lower level garage providing a total of garage parking for 4 cars and motor court parking for several more. <br> The second level of the home offers an expansive master suite with separate sitting room, more than ample walk-in closet and wardrobe space along with two spacious bathrooms. Four more bedrooms with three more baths complete the second level. The third level of the home provides an additional bedroom and bath plus den and houses the utilities in a separate dedicated room. The lower level provides a 6th bedroom and bath, large catering kitchen, second family room area with plenty of space for a wine cellar, utilities and entry to the attached 2 car garage. <br> A total of approximately 15,600 square feet (12,350 of finished space) with 7 bedrooms, 10 full baths and 2 half baths, this manor home and its outstanding grounds offer a once in a lifetime opportunity to create your own estate property. <br> NOTES ABOUT THE NEIGHBORHOOD and HISTORY Location, location, location: Edgemoor’s location is one of a kind…. just blocks to downtown Bethesda and the numerous top-notch restaurants, retail stores and community centers including the notable Montgomery Farm Women’s cooperative market. Blocks to the Bethesda Metro and the National Institutes of Health, and conveniently located within approximately 30 to 45 minutes of 3 major airports. <br> Sought after Edgemoor is home to many multigenerational families, and its development is a testament to the American Dream. In 1913 developer and financier Walter Tuckerman purchased the former Watkins Farm, subdividing it into residential lots, reserving a large parcel in the center for a sports club, which today is a focal point for swim and tennis in the neighborhood, aptly named The Edgemoor Club. The Edgemoor Club to this day is famous for its tennis facility and the famous players who came to play from all over the metro area. <br> This is the perfect opportunity for you to create your own American Dream - in updating the current residence or designing your own custom dream home and guest house.
