Waynewood alert!! This expansive five-bedroom, three full bath split-foyer Claremont model is one of the larger models originally constructed by Gosnell. Prominently situated on the crest of Potomac Lane in the heart of sought-after Waynewood. The charm and character of this 1963 home are very much intact and authentic to the era it was built. The current owners did a fantastic job maintaining this property over many decades, and it shows. With a newer hot water heater and HVAC, you've got more than just good bones. It's genuinely a vast blank canvas ready for your vision. Upon entry, you will find a thick dark gray slate entry floor. Head upstairs, where you will find the original hardwood floors, two wood-burning fireplaces, large bedrooms with roomy closets. Really large bathrooms on both levels. The primary bedroom has a walk-in closet, and the primary bath has an enormous shower stall. Huge living and formal dining room. There are two additional bedrooms and one large full bath on the lower level. This model's kitchen is unique in that it is enormous and has an exposed brick wall with a fireplace and wall oven and ample space to create the kitchen of your dreams. You will find a very spacious family/recreation room on the lower level. Exposed brick wall with wood-burning fireplace and entrance to the separate laundry room and an exit to the backyard. Enormous utility room. There is a newer HVAC and hot water heater located in this room but also perfect space for a playroom/home office/home gym or simply storage. There is a long driveway with enough space for 3-4 vehicles. There is also a one-car garage with enough room for a workshop and extra storage. You can access the garage from the lower level. You are literal steps from the members-only Waynewood Recreation center with community pool, tennis courts, and tot-lot. Walk to Waynewood and Carl Sandburg Schools.
