"The immigrant, artisan marble and tile mason builder of this home arrived in the United States through Ellis Island, New York, aboard the S. S. Taormina from Cavazzo, a small town in the Udine province of Italy, on June 4, 1920, at the age of 18. He started working as a tile setter, and with tenacity and determination he eventually became a 1/5 owner of Standard Art Marble and Tile Company, whose handiwork is still seen today all over the region. In fact, the same terrazzo process and recipe he used to create this home's foyer and basement staircases and floors was used by the company to create the great CIA seal inside the front doors of CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia. The successful immigrant and his teenage son began the construction of this home in 1948 and it was completed in 1950. It is one of the first homes built in Hawthorne yet its present ownership remains in the immediate family that built it.~The original family who lived in this home has shared the history written above about it and the patriarch who meticulously crafted each room for both continuity and for the embodiment of the "waste not, want not" thinking of the era, the early 50's to be exact. It really is the classic vintage home which begs to have that wandering buyer fall in love with its design, its original but pristine fixtures, its traditional layout, and above all its sturdy character that has stood the test of time some 70 years. A Gorgeous Stone Colonial in the highly sought after Hawthorne neighborhood, this home has a tale and charm which is unmatched. Built in 1948 with stones from Tennessee encompassing the outside, then 16" cinderblocks, and finishing with 8" cinderblocks which are all reinforced with rods and cement to create an airtight, energy efficient interior. The story continues as much of the wood to build the house came from Truman's inaugural stands, the 2 fireplaces were built from marble procured from ice cream stands of the time, and the Terrazzo tile was laid from materials direct from Italy. The rest of the home has original hardwood flooring. Upon entry into the tiled hallway, find yourself in the lore of yesteryear, with a spacious Living Room with a wood burning, marble fireplace, a separate Dining Room, the Kitchen, 3 ample closets and a half bathroom. The lower level is also tiled with Terrazzo, has a marble Fireplace and offers almost 800 feet of finished space for whatever you choose! On the upper level, there is a Master Bedroom with Master Bath, and 3 additional Bedrooms. The hallway has a Full Bathroom with tub, and a separate linen closet. For outdoor living and entertaining, enjoy the tiled deck stretching the full length of the house with access from the kitchen and living room, the tiered backyard with Stone Hearth, a curved stone area for patio seating, and many locations to grow a garden or to create a fantastic landscape design! The home has Central A/C and Gas Heat, a 2-car Garage, off-street parking, and is centrally located, yet nestled in an idyllic, parklike setting. Come enjoy the beauty and craftsmanship of a home which was family-built with care and pride of ownership!

Chevy Chase

To many residents of the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, Chevy Chase is almost synonymous with Maryland. But this definition only describes one half of a larger community.

Chevy Chase, D.C. was developed in conjunction with Chevy Chase, M.D. Both were part of the vision shared by Senator Francis Newlands and William Stewart, who foresaw the future value of land northwest of the nation’s Capitol. The two men bought thousands of acres of land along modern day Connecticut Avenue, and transferred the rights to their Chevy Chase Land Company.

The development of Chevy Chase, D.C. mirrored the growth of metropolitan communities in Arlington and Alexandria in the late 1800s. From farmland to suburb, the electric streetcar bolstered and encouraged the evolution of Chevy Chase, D.C. and beyond. Today, the community strikes a balance between capitol delights and suburban serenity, reaffirming the original intentions of its planners.

Quality of Life:

Housing stock reflects the community’s progressive trend, from pasture to parceled lots. Sears homes, colonials, capes and contemporary styles are all represented here. There are apartments and condominiums as well.

Rock Creek Park provides plenty for residents seeking an outdoor fix. The Chevy Chase Recreation Center features a Little League baseball field, basketball courts and playground. There are numerous restaurants and boutique eateries throughout the area. 

Getting Around

There is no metro line that runs directly through Chevy Chase, D.C. however, there are several buses including: M4, L1, L2, L4 E2, E3, E4 and E6 that run up and down Connecticut Avenue. The metro is also accessible on foot or car at either Tenleytown—AU or Van Ness—UDC stations. These stops are on the Red line.
