SOLD:  $775,000

Welcome to 1612 Ballard St., a sunny and expansive 4-bedroom, 3.5-bath home perched on the edge of downtown Silver
Located in  historic Woodside  and sharing the amenities for which this popular neighborhood is known (friendly
community, charming properties, lush yards with mature trees, and excellent walk-ability), this 1994 Victorian nevertheless
offers the advantages of modern design: eat-in kitchen with adjacent family room, high ceilings, generous spaces, ample closets,
excellent flow for entertaining, and a 2-car garage.

On the main level just off the foyer and wide center hall are formal living and dining rooms, a large kitchen with excellent
counter, storage, and table space, and a large family room (with fireplace) and den. The
floor plan, while largely traditional,
provides great flexibility:
currently the dining room is a music room, the family room is used for dining, and the den is a media
room…! On the second level are 3 bedrooms, laundry, hall bathroom, and the master suite. The basement is mostly finished,
providing a comfortable & fully carpeted “rec room/office”, full bath, storage room, and additional space for games, projects,
or conversion to possible in-law use.

The rear deck and slate patio offer a peaceful environment in which to enjoy breakfast or an evening barbecue while admiring
the garden. With a large driveway, 2-car garage (with yet more attic storage space), and a comfortable amble to all that Silver
Spring has to offer, this home is a true delight.
