The Chancellors Row community sits on 10 acres of carefully developed land in the Brookland neighborhood adjacent to St. Paul’s College. The key to this development was to create homes that looked as though they were always part of the community while maintaining the serene calm environment of the neighborhood. The design of the community provides for wide streetscapes and enclaves of homes. This enables the 237 units, completed in 2014, to feel much more intimate, like a town within a town and where people know their neighbors.
The home located at 3051 Chancellors Way, is one such home. Tucked in a courtyard with blossoming crepe myrtles and across from a community park, comprised of only 9 other houses, this gorgeous end unit is perfectly situated and feels very private.
Upon entering, a den with French doors, currently used as a wine-tasting room, is easily envisioned as an office for those working from home and desiring an entirely separate workspace. There is a coat closet tucked between this room and the 2-car garage at the end of the hallway. The garage is wide and provides extra room for storage both on the sides and in racks situated above where the cars park.
Walking upstairs to the first floor, visitors will encounter a half bath discreetly tucked at the top of the stairs before turning the corner and entering the expansive kitchen, dining, and living room areas. Flooded with light from 7 large windows on 3 sides, these rooms glow with natural light at all times of day.
The chef’s kitchen boasts newer black stainless steel appliances including a gas range, a beautiful glass tile backsplash, ample cabinets that extend to the ceiling, and a prep island with breakfast bar. A balcony, located off the kitchen is an excellent spot for morning coffee, growing herbs, or just stepping out to check the morning weather and offers a view of the lovely 19th-century Holy Redeemer College building. The enviable and expansive pantry provides ample storage to warm any baker’s heart.
Leaving the main living area, one will find 2 bedrooms located on the floor above. With hardwood floors throughout this level, both bedrooms feature ensuite bathrooms for the ultimate in privacy. The owner's suite with windows on 2 sides, features a sizeable walk-in closet, double sinks, a large linen closet, a luxurious corner soaking tub, and an adjacent stand-alone shower with a built-in bench.
Situated between the 2 bedrooms on this level is a laundry room with a side-by-side, large capacity, energy efficient, washer and dryer, and extra storage for cleaning supplies above.
The second bedroom with ensuite bath, also features windows on 2 sides, and is found at the end of the hall.
On the fourth and final level, currently partitioned as an office and a more casual hangout space, you’ll find a third full bath with a walk-in shower and double-headed rain shower, hardwood floors throughout leading to a private roof deck accessed through a sliding door with floor-to-ceiling glass. Stepping outside, you can’t help but look across at the sweep of treetops as far as the eye can see.
The current owner has styled the outside area with ample seating, an umbrella, a fire pit table to create the perfect ambiance, and gas and water bibs as well as an external electric outlet. With the heavy lifting done, this entire level can be reimagined to suit the needs of the most discerning buyer.
The property has had numerous upgrades not just in finishes but in functionality including a few noteworthy such as fully owned solar panels offsetting electric bills, enhanced lighting throughout, dual flush toilets to offset water usage, water softening system, new air-conditioning unit, and programmable thermostat, a whole house surge protector, CAT 5 wiring, and extra insulation in the garage to keep temperatures more consistent all year long.
This home has been lovingly enhanced and maintained and is not to be missed.
