Charming 1923 Home Built with Love Situated in The Highly Coveted Town of Chevy Chase
Take yourself back to the 1920’s when Hollywood was just starting to embrace the glitz and glamour we associate it with today.
It’s the same time period in which this house was built, but it’s also the year the famous Hollywood sign came into existence. Silent movie stars like Charlie Chaplin, Lon Chaney, and Rudolph Valentino were just starting out, and no one could have imagined they would remain household names to this day.
It was the Roaring 20’s, and the top movie stars were earning yearly salaries of $1 million or more. Such an amount was unthinkable for most people during that time, but it classified them as bona fide stars and the lifestyle that came with it. They were darlings of the media, they were respected, and it was an age that embraced the prestigious lifestyle they represented.
With World War I over, society was focused on development, growth, and significant changes to lifestyle and culture. Although Prohibition was very much in force, people still found ways to imbibe at speakeasies throughout the country. Prosperity was widespread, and people broke from modern tradition to embrace the modern technology of the time.
And lifestyle is exactly what this house is about.
Situated in Chevy Chase, living in this home may make you feel as if you’ve gained celebrity status. You’ll have all the recognition of living in this exclusive community without the hassle of the glitz or glamour.
If you’ve been looking for a home in one of the most prestigious zip codes in the United States, and have not found the right home, then you need to check out the property at 3917 Underwood Street.
Life in the Highly-Coveted Town of Chevy Chase
There’s no need to move to Hollywood or time travel back to the 1920s to enjoy prestige when it’s embedded in your surroundings.
The Town of Chevy Chase is well-known as a distinguished community and is one of the most sought-after zip codes in the United States. It’s conveniently located only 22 minutes from Washington D.C. and just under an hour from Baltimore making it ideal for commuters.
But Chevy Chase is so much more than its location. It’s about the lifestyle and prestige that come with living in the area.
The home is located just 5 blocks away from the world-renowned Columbia Country Club. Founded more than 100 years ago, you’ll discover an indoor, Olympic-sized pool, tennis courts, fitness center, bowling alley, ice skating rink in the winter, and a sprawling 18-hole golf course, meaning you’ll never be without something to do. And if you prefer a quieter setting, you’ll enjoy the home-like ambiance of the clubhouse where you can sit and relax in front of the fireplace and catch up with old friends.
The club also offers youth activities to accommodate the entire family as well as private catering and a variety of dining options.
And don’t forget that you’re just minutes away from the nation’s capital where you’ll be immersed in history through museums, monuments, and stunning architecture.
Secluded & Privately Located with Mature Trees
Walking up to the front door will give you the feeling of your own private walkway due to the mature trees and shrubbery that line the path. The only thing missing is the red carpet! Additional seclusion comes from the tree-lined street, a retaining wall, and other trees situated on the front lawn.
Given that the lot is on .17 acres, you’ll also discover a private fenced-in backyard that’s great for playing with the kids and pets. Or, participate in sports activities when guests stop by for a cookout.
The enclosed back porch overlooks the lush greenery of the backyard. It’s the ideal location for eating outdoors, reading your favorite book, or just enjoying the fresh air. And if it’s a warm day, you can still enjoy the view in comfort due to the overhead ceiling fan.
Well-Built Home with Plenty Attention to Detail
Homes built back in the 1920s were made with a high level of attention to detail and care almost unheard of in today’s market. This was before the “evolution” of the track-builder, and it was certainly before the mundane “cookie-cutter” concept we’ve grown to associate with properties.
As you enter the home, you’ll instantly notice the ease of living in the modernized home. The hardwood floors add to the comfort and charm of the adequately sized 25’ x 14’ living room. Custom window coverings provide ample natural light to the space making it ideal for an afternoon of reading and relaxation.
