While the weather may be cooler as winter approaches, a hammock in the yard of a brick Colonial-style home gives guests a preview of next season’s possibilities. This home appears in a picturesque wooded setting on a 0.17-acre lot.

Located at 2 Arrowood Terrace in the Burning Tree Estates neighborhood in Bethesda, this home is on the market for $1,050,000. Built in 1962, the owners have updated the home with new windows and a remodeled kitchen and master bath.

A double-door entry opens to a large foyer with slate floors, leaded glass windows, a staircase and a closet. An arched entryway leads from the foyer to the living room, which features crown molding. A wood-burning fireplace, which features an elegant marble surround, serves as a focal point for the room. There are French doors on the back wall that open to a large deck.

Another arched entryway leads from the living room to the dining room. Hardwood floors gleam in both rooms, as well as throughout the entire main level. The dining room features a chandelier and a set of glass doors to the deck.

Adjacent to the dining room is a remodeled kitchen with black granite counters, white cabinetry with lighting, a counter peninsula with pendant lights and space for stools, and upgraded appliances. Among the stainless steel appliances are an oven, a refrigerator, a dishwasher and a professional gas cooktop with an overhead exhaust. Like the living room and dining room, there is access to the back deck from the kitchen.

The kitchen is open to the family room, which has painted wood-paneling walls, recessed lights and built-ins.

This home has a two-car garage accessed through the mudroom, which features a laundry area with a washer and dryer, cabinets, a sink and a walk-in pantry. The garage offers additional storage and a workbench.

Upstairs are four bedrooms and three full baths. The master bedroom has an updated luxury bath with an oversized soaking tub, glass shower stall, a long vanity with built-ins, pendant lighting, two large windows and ceramic tile. There’s also a walk-in closet with shelves and organizers.

A second bedroom has French doors that open to a balcony. This bedroom also has a private bath, while the remaining two bedrooms share a hall bath.

The spacious lower level has several above-ground windows. A recreation room has carpet, wood paneling and a wood-burning fireplace with a brick surround. Sliding glass doors in the recreation room lead to a flagstone patio that sits below the deck.

The owners used two other rooms on this level as an exercise room and an office. Both have carpet, wood paneling and a window. There is also a small full bath.

This home is minutes from the Beltway and close to shopping, restaurants, parks, golf and recreation.

Whether on the deck or the patio, the new owners will enjoy the backyard filled with azaleas, towering trees and perennials.
