For the first time in decades you have the chance to make 5545 Potomac Avenue your forever home. This majestic home sits prominently on a large (.27 acre) corner lot with a beautifully landscaped yard, boasts striking river views, and has a two-story addition that gives you plenty of space to enjoy life. From the moment you step inside, you'll appreciate the graciousness and elegance of the large living room with double-hung windows on three sides and ample room to create multiple seating areas, as well as the spacious dining room that is the perfect combination of comfort and formality. There is an additional sitting/reading room or home office, ample natural light and direct garden access. And the garden! It's spectacular and so private with mature plantings that give you year-round privacy.

The added kitchen/family room addition is where you'll really want to be. The kitchen is set up to accommodate families, large or small-scale entertaining and it offers abundant counter and storage space. There are high ceilings, oversized windows and built-in cabinetry plus a butler's pantry with additional counter and storage space. The nearby laundry room and powder room complete this level.

The upper level has a lovely primary bedroom suite with en-suite bathroom, walk-in closet and ample shelves for the avid reader or collector. And windows where you'll wake to spectacular river views...the perfect start to any day. In addition, there are three additional bedrooms and two additional baths.

The third level has the ideal escape room with an open TV/play area, a quiet and private guest room (or home office) and a full bath. The lower level has room to enjoy a good movie, hang out with friends or take up a new hobby. There is a full bath, lots of storage and a separate entrance.

The Palisades location is superb - minutes to Georgetown and downtown DC, easy access to 495, Virginia, Maryland and beyond. Take your pick of areas to shop and enjoy dining out at some delightful nearby popular restaurants - Claudio's Table, Bistro Aracosia, Et Voila, Black Salt and Lupo Verde Osteria to name a few. The Palisades community with the annual July 4th Parade, the farmer's market and the local Recreation Community is known for its small town feel in the city. For the outdoor enthusiast, Palisades also offers easy access to the Capital Crescent Trail, the C&O Canal, Palisades Park and Battery Kemble Park. Owning a home like 5545 Potomac Avenue is a once in a generation opportunity. It's not just a home, it's a lifetime of happy memories.
