Built in the 1930s, this four-bedroom, 5.5-bathroom Tudor house at 2738 McKinley St. NW in Chevy Chase, D.C. recently hit the market for the first time in 60 years, its listing agents say.

The home is located on a quiet cul-de-sac off Utah Avenue NW and near Rock Creek Park. The sunroom and the dining room on the main floor feature floor-to-ceiling windows that look out to the back gardens. District firm Wiebenson & Associates designed these rooms.

The gourmet kitchen is attached to the breakfast room, which was designed by prominent architect Hugh Newell Jacobsen and has a vaulted ceiling. Out back are a heated pool and deck. The living room has a wood-burning fireplace, built-in shelves, and recessed lighting.

Designed by D.C.-based architect and sculptor Dickson Carroll, the light-filled master suite on the second level provides high ceilings and a private deck. On the third level, there are three bedrooms with hardwood floors, two bathrooms, and a study with a skylight.

Carroll also designed the finished lower level, where a recreational room comes with a “whimsical” painted ceiling, as the listing team puts it. This level is equipped with a fireplace, kitchenette, laundry room, two full bathrooms, and outdoor access.

Overall, the home has about 4,500 square feet of livable space on a 12,000 square-foot lot. The list price is $1,595,000, and parking is included. Christopher Ritzert and Christie-Anne Weiss of Ritzert Weiss Partners at TTR Sotheby’s International Realty are the listing agents.
