Libby Barnes to Hold Open Exquisite Five-Bedroom Home in University Park


Quality craftsmanship and attention to detail are apparent from the moment you enter 4520 Potomac Avenue. Libby Barnes with Dave Perry-Miller & Associates’ Lakewood office is marketing the 2008 well-built, 5,100-square-foot home, situated on a terrific block in University Park, for $1,700,000. The property will be open from 2 to 4 p.m. on Sunday afternoon.

An open floor plan is enhanced with freshly painted walls, beautiful rounded archways, rich crown molding and casings, and hardwood floors. At the front of home are the lovely formal dining room and a large study or den with a handsome coffered ceiling and a wall of built-ins.




The kitchen is a cook’s dream featuring a center island with Calcutta marble and a vegetable sink, ideal for food prep, along with commercial-grade appliances, including a built-in Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer, a six-burner gas cooktop, Dacor double ovens, and dual Asko dishwashers. There are gorgeous custom cabinets, subway-tile backsplash, granite countertops, a butler’s pantry, a breakfast bar, and a light-filled breakfast room with floor-to-ceiling windows.




An expansive open archway connects the kitchen to the stunning family room. The family room is complemented by a spectacular coffered ceiling, a masonry gas-log fireplace surrounded by built-ins, and a well-equipped wet bar with an ice maker, a beverage refrigerator, and a separate, walk-in, climate-controlled wine room. Completing this inviting space are two sets of French doors opening to a covered outdoor living area with a fireplace and television wiring, and grassy backyard with a towering live oak.




Front and rear staircases provide access to the second floor comprised of four bedrooms, four full baths, and a full-sized utility room. The master suite offers a tray ceiling and a bath with dual vanities, a jetted tub, a separate shower, and a walk-in closet. A hidden door leads to the third floor with an oversize guest suite and a full bath.




Additional amenities include a high-end a Savant home system that controls audio, video, and lighting; four air conditioning units; a tankless water heater; and a two-car garage.

“This home, in a great location and in move-in condition, will appeal to the most discerning home buyer,” says Barnes.
