About 147 Forest Avenue

Once in a lifetime an opportunity presents itself to own a piece of local history. Located in the tree canopied neighborhood of Bell Court; which is equal distance to the heart of downtown and the heart of Chevy Chase, sits one of the finest examples of Queen Anne Victorian architecture in Lexington. The property was meticulously restored and the interior has achieved the perfect balance of historic architectural features with modern renovations to create a truly harmonious living space. The iconic gingerbread wrap around porch welcomes you into the two-story foyer with grand staircase. Tons of natural light fill the living room with built-ins and spacious dining room with a Venetian glass chandelier. A 2-story contemporary addition includes a chef's kitchen and luxurious primary suite on the second floor. There are three additional generous sized bedrooms on the second floor each with unique, charming details. A finished third floor with 12+ feet ceilings is perfect for a family room with a powder room that feels like a present behind the custom doorway. Professionally designed with attention to every detail this home is a delight from the first step on the dazzling front porch.
