Welcome to 1818 Locust Grove, a spacious townhome with fresh paint, brand-new carpeting, a brand-new roof, and hardwood floors. The open floor plan is ideal for entertaining and comfortable living. Upon entering the foyer, you are greeted by a bright living room leading to a spacious dining area. The just-updated eat-in kitchen features extensive granite countertops, an excess of cabinet space, and stainless appliances. A large French oak sliding glass door gives access to an expansive full-width deck overlooking the back yard holding an all-greenery view, a rare find among townhouses in the area. Combined with a communal front lawn, this urban townhouse thus feels like an escape.The upper level has three bedrooms and two full baths including a true master suite with en-suite updated two-sink bathroom having an oversized tub and a frameless glass shower stall featuring a bench. The master walk-in closet is equipped with custom shelving organizers, and the second bedroom on the same level offers a second walk-in closet, another rarely-seen feature.The lower level of the home is above ground, and has a spacious family room with a gas fireplace, yet another full bath, laundry room, a large, dedicated storage room (rare for a townhouse), and access to the garage. It could be used as an in-law suite.All of this tucked off Georgia Avenue, inside the beltway, with easy on/off access, yet shielded from traffic noise. The Forest Glen Metro is less than a ten-minute walk, along a dedicated walkway just for that purpose. Also a few minutes' walk away are two grocery stores, other shopping, restaurants, a neighborhood park, 495, and the DC line. Downtown Silver Spring with its shops, restaurants, theaters, and Whole Foods is a few minutes' drive away, as is Wheaton with its Westfield Mall, H-Mart, and two of the area's top parks~Wheaton Regional Park and the stunning Brookside Gardens.
