The Battery is a private community of just 15 single-family homes nestled in a cul de sac, on nearly five acres of land in the lush green Kent neighborhood. You feel like you are one with nature, and yet you're so close to services and restaurants! A short walk away are two national parks, and a short drive is Georgetown, National Airport and more! More information about this wonderful community can be found on www.BatteryPlaceDC.com. This contemporary home is graciously designed, with spacious main level living and dining spaces. The large, light kitchen opens to the dining room, and beyond to the living room and study. Both the living and dining rooms open to a large, private deck. The kitchen opens to its own large, private deck, equipped with a hot tub. The second level boasts two bedrooms and two full renovated baths, all with abundant light. The walk-out lower level features a family room, two bedrooms, two baths (one en suite to a bedroom) and lots of storage. You can walk out from the family room to yet another private outdoor terrace. Improvements made by sellers: 2nd floor bedroom/ office - added new built in desk, closets, and chest of drawers plus new windows in overlook to living room in 2004. Renovated the two full bathrooms on 2nd floor in 2017. Created a new bedroom on the lower level in 2007. Installed a new storage room by stairs on the lower level in 2007.

Don't be scared by the monthly HOA fee - this is like living at the Cloisters, with lots of amenities! Monthly association fee of $981 includes water and sewer (approx $169), trash & recycling (5%), top-grade landscaping (32%; a bargain!), maintenance of private street and its surrounding elements including snow removal (7%), limited insurance and professional off-site property management (13% each), administrative (5%), and reserve fund contribution (25%). Taxes of $496 are paid monthly through the association ($5,952 annually; if paid to DC directly, they'd be over $7,000/yr).
