The owners have taken immaculate care of this home over their 30-year tenure preserving its original charm and character throughout the home as well as the kitchen and primary bedroom suite that was added in 2007. The curb appeal is fantastic with the large front porch spanning the front of the home and beautiful landscaping. Inside, you will love the finishes and character featuring gorgeous refinished hardwood floors throughout the first and second floors, original wood trim, radiator heat, and fantastic natural light streaming through the windows. Cozy up to the wood burning fireplace on cold winter nights as you relax in your living room. A true entertaining home, the dining room is just off the renovated kitchen, which was expanded and upgraded in 2007. Cooking for your guests is a breeze with your 5-burner Fisher & Paykel gas range. The kitchen is well-designed with handcrafted cabinetry, an island with room for stools, a butcher block island, double sinks, Bosch dishwasher and Jenn-Air refrigerator, both with custom cabinets fronts. After dinner, you and your guests can retreat to a screened porch just off the kitchen. With the expansion in 2007, the owners created a primary bedroom suite on the first floor that overlooks the lush landscaped backyard. Just off the bedroom is a full bathroom with double sinks, a standup shower, and pocket door that can turn the full bath into a half bath for guests. On the second floor, you will find two large bedrooms, a finished sunroom - a perfect spot for an office or playroom - and a full bathroom featuring many original details. On the lower level you will find a large finished room that can be used as a movie room or overflow bedroom for guests. The other half of the lower level is unfinished space that can be used for storage or finished for additional livable area (ceilings are 7ft 5inches). Under the addition, the owners created additional storage space - a perfect place for housing lawn equipment. Located on a large lot, the owners have created a masterpiece of space. There is off-street parking for multiple cars. The original garage was turned into an outdoor studio with heating and cooling, electric, and wired for the internet. The high beamed ceiling showcases this space. The yard has been landscaped into a peaceful retreat with Japanese Maple and Crepe Myrtle trees throughout (many grown from seeds and cuttings collected by the owners). The second screened patio sits just behind the studio space and is a perfect place to enjoy outdoor dinners or just curl up in a chair to read a book. As if all this wasn't enough, this stunning home is just 2.5 blocks from the Takoma Metro Station; one block from the newly opened Donut Run and Lost Sock Coffee; and you are surrounded with numerous restaurants, shopping and parks. Don't forget to visit the Takoma Farmers Market as well!
