3306 Camalier Drive
Designer details and modern lines are the hallmarks of this six-bedroom, ﬁve-and-a-half bathroom custom built home nestled on a rare wooded lot in Chevy Chase. This modern farmhouse features four levels of living space bursting with unique features, including reclaimed heartwood pine sourced from old barns in Pennsylvania and an elevator shaft that spans three levels for easy future installation. A large wrap-around covered ﬂagstone porch with natural wood columns and bead board ceiling welcomes you to the front entrance and complements the horizontal and vertical James Hardie plank siding, grand gooseneck lighting, and designer Marvin-brand wood windows with black interior and black clad exterior ﬁnish. A ceiling fan and recessed lighting allow you to take in the neighborhood views any time of day.
Step inside the foyer onto wide plank white oak ﬂooring that continues throughout the top three levels of the home. Soaring 10’ ceilings, reclaimed heartwood pine header beams and sun-ﬁlled windows create a warm and welcoming atmosphere throughout the main level. A formal dining room and quiet den/home ofﬁce can be found on either side of the foyer, while a centrally located powder room and mud room with custom cabinetry add convenience and storage. Continue into the spacious open concept family room and kitchen that span the entire width of the home and offers great views to a heavily wooded backyard through a wide picture window and full lite Marvin sliding, French patio doors.
Prepare meals in the smartly-planned kitchen equipped with professional quality Thermador appliances, including a commercial style gas range with six burners, two sinks, two dishwashers, and two ovens. Four ﬂoating shelves made of reclaimed heartwood pine surround the stainless steel pyramid range hood. A large walk-in pantry and rows of wood cabinetry keep all of your cooking essentials organized while a center island provides wine storage and open shelving, plus additional prep and presentation space. Enjoy casual meals at the breakfast bar or in the sunny and spacious dining area complete with access to the large screened porch.
Gather around the gas ﬁreplace featuring a stone surround and reclaimed heartwood pine mantel in the family room offering a triple panel sliding glass patio door that leads to the sun deck, which comes ready with a natural gas line. This home was designed for entertaining and offers cable/internet wiring throughout, plus multiple 5:1 home theater set-ups pre-wired into the family room and lower level rec room.
The same attention to detail can be found on the second level complete with extra high 9’ ceilings and an open staircase with spacious landings. Two comfortable guest and/or children’s bedrooms offer walk-in closets and en suite bathrooms, one with a full tub and shower and one with a shower. The primary suite is tucked away for added privacy, spans the full width of the house, and features exceptional details at every turn. Relax in the luxurious vessel tub or custom glass enclosed walk-in shower with three separately controlled showerheads. There are two large walk-in closets (or dedicate one to ofﬁce space or as a Peloton room!). A custom double vanity, water closet, heated ﬂooring and heated towel rack add the ﬁnishing touches. The hallway offers a large storage room open to many possible uses. Finally, a convenient spacious laundry room with a storage/linen closet and utility sink complete this level.
The third level offers exceptional ﬂexibility with two additional bedrooms boasting spectacular treetop views that can easily serve as guest rooms or home ofﬁces, plus a large separate bonus room with a walk-in closet that can also serve as a game/play room, TV room or additional bedroom. Off the hallway is a spacious bathroom with shower, large vanity, and separate toilet room. A linen closet and mechanical room complete this level and provide tons of additional storage space perfect for luggage, holiday decorations, and more.
The expansive walk-out lower level is fully ﬁnished with high 9’ ceilings and luxury vinyl plank ﬂooring. A large rec room offers an additional gathering space or game room while a separate room with rubber ﬂooring and a wall mirror serves as a dedicated workout space and is pre-wired to alternatively serve as a home theater room (with projector if desired). A comfortable bedroom with a large walk-in closet and access to a full bathroom with a shower is ideal for an au pair or multigenerational living. Ample storage space under the stairs and in the mechanical room, plus a convenient second laundry room with a utility sink, complete the lower level.
The private backyard is a wonderful extension of the living space surrounded by rare wooded views. The spacious screened porch was designed for year-round enjoyment with two skylights, a ceiling fan, and recessed lighting, and includes pre-wiring for a wall mounted infrared heater. Outdoor dining and grilling are easy on the sun deck complete with an integrated natural gas line perfect for a barbecue island. The deep lot can easily accommodate a pool and the addition of a detached garage (county building permit-compliant architectural plans have been drawn and are available for review).
This home has been thoughtfully designed with every convenience, including four zones of heating and cooling control (each zone individually controlled by its own thermostat), slim proﬁle programmable LED recessed lighting, a 240v high current fast charge electrical outlet by the end of the driveway for easy charging of an electric car and a 240v high current junction box on the rear patio, just outside the lower-level patio doors, for future hot tub installation. This breathtaking home won’t be available for long!
