Welcome home! Perched upon its own hill sits this five-bedroom and two-and-a-half bath Dutch Colonial Revival. When the current owners bought the property they cherished the character and dedicated a tremendous amount of time and love to bringing out its beauty and tastefully adding some modern touches. For the purist, it still features many nods to the past like original hardwood floors, wood trim throughout the home, slate roof, solid core doors, copper gutters/downspouts, many original art deco-era light fixtures, and porcelain bathroom fixtures. There are countless tasteful updates throughout the home with 3-zone central air, 2-zone radiant heating (96 pct efficiency Bosch combo boiler/hot water heater), smart things-compatible switches/dimmers, 200A electric panel, french drains in the basement, spray foam insulation, and much more. One area of pride is the kitchen with newer appliances, Virginia soapstone countertops, fully custom handmade cabinets, a double oven & touchless faucets. If the space on the main two levels isn’t enough, you have three other great options. First is to head down to the fully finished basement with a large bedroom and new bathroom featuring Kohler fixtures, heated floors & custom concrete countertop. The second is to grab your imagination and head to the attic which is ready for all your HGTV renovation ideas. It has the original heart of pine flooring, access to plumbing stack, and the A/C system is already zoned for convenience. Your third option is to head outside to the vast outdoor space that is perfect for gardening. You can either flex your own green thumb or enjoy the established landscaping including plum trees, apple trees, quince, peonies, blueberries, azaleas, pomegranate trees, fig trees, crepe myrtle, perennial flowers, & a hedge of wild roses. If you really need to leave the house, you can visit some of the nearby places like Zeke’s coffee, Menomale or Brookland’s Finest over on 12th Street, and Fort Lincoln which is home to lots of treats like Costco, Lowes, Five Guys, and much more! If you want to go further have no worries – just pull the car out of the garage and head wherever your heart desires.
