Palisades: 4 Br, 3.5 Bath Timberwood Contemporary

Modern and secluded in the midst of the city

The Timberwood cluster of 11 mid-century modern homes is a secluded oasis in the Kent/Palisades neighborhood, designed by leading 1960s modernist firm Cross & Adreon. The houses are set far off the main Boulevard along a wooded private lane and creek, yet a short walk away from restaurants, stores and services, or a five minute drive to Georgetown. The updated and meticulously maintained 4-bedroom, 3.5 bath home, built in 1969, sits nestled into a hill of green. Decks, patios and a beautifully designed garden are accessible from all levels, bringing the lush green exterior into the living spaces.

Also within easy walking distance: the highly rated Key School, Palisades Playground and Rec Center, the Capital Crescent Trail and the C & O Canal. Near Canal Road and Chain Bridge for easy commuting to downtown DC, the Beltway, or the area airports.
