We're proud to present the iconic Campbell-Whiteford House. This stunning, architecturally significant residence was custom designed by acclaimed architect, Reginald Geare (as his own residence) and built by pioneering female developer, Fannie Barrett. Geare & Barrett created some of the most notable, ornate & dramatic homes in Chevy Chase. The Campbell-Whiteford residence is considered to be one of the best examples of the Italian Renaissance style in Montgomery County. The stately residence stands proudly at the gateway to old "Chevy Chase Park" on the town's first paved street. It enjoys its own serene, beautifully landscaped grounds of nearly one half acre. A few of the numerous & notable residence details include the Tuscan Portico under the broken arch pediment, the Palladian style dormer on the winged roof (with decorative soffit detailing), the Quoin block detailing on the corners of the house structure, the third floor sleeping porch with sweeping views of the grounds, neighborhood, CCC's fireworks show and beyond, the impressive circular driveway, ....... This home delivers ongoing, delightful surprises at every turn and one could literally spend hours touring the property. One expansive, second level bedroom is currently set up as a family room space. Other bedrooms are set up as highly desirable home offices. The home was even built with a pipe organ in the library (though it's no longer there). This timeless masterpiece is an amazing opportunity and it will offer boundless enjoyment for its next steward (and their guests!) Though the residence is in wonderful condition, it is being sold "as-is". The owners opted not to have the property designated historic in an effort to retain the flexibility to enhance the property without the additional, associated restrictions. Note: the lower level bedroom suite does not have a "legal" egress window (it's a little too small) - don't miss the claw foot tub!. There's an underground county stormwater pipe that runs along Meadow Lane (see diagram under "documents"). There's additional Town property along Meadow Lane that the owners can enjoy. It gives the property grounds a feel of significantly more acreage than the 18,000+ sq.ft. The Town of Ch.Ch. is an incorporated municipality with amazing, comprehensive services for residents. The Town does have its own zoning authority and it should be reviewed by all prospective purchasers. Interior photos, 3-D virtual tour, floor plans (go to "documents") are all attached to this listing!
