Major rehab needed, but so much potential! Sold strictly As Is. Pre-inspections welcomed. This enchanting 2-bedroom brick cottage, on a 5,100 square foot lot, boasts a unique slate roof of many gables! With its magnificent cherry tree believed to be over 200 years old, the property is one you might happen upon in the French or English countryside. It shares elements of Tudor, Cape Cod, and Bungalow design. The main level features arched doorways–a handsome architectural detail–hardwood floors, living room with fireplace #1, dining room, sunroom, kitchen with rear exterior door, bedroom #1, bedroom #2, and full bath #1. Pull-down stairs lead to a spacious, pine-floored attic with a generously high ceiling. The lower level has a laundry hookup, recreation room, bonus room with closet, kitchen #2, fireplace #2, full bath #2 , and a private rear exterior door with stairs. The delightful, fenced backyard is level with a perimeter of greenery and trees. A brick, one-car garage is accessed via the alley. Located in the heart of sought-after American University Park on one of the quietest streets, the home is barely 3 blocks from Janney Elementary, 4 blocks from Tenley Metro, Library, stores, and restaurants; 4 blocks from Spring Valley Shopping Center and restaurants; and 5 blocks from the beloved Friendship Recreation Center (“Turtle” Park). The center offers a state-of-the-art 4,500 square foot recreation facility, tot lot, splash pad, upper playground, basketball and tennis courts, and baseball field. An Olympic-sized indoor pool is at Jackson Reed High School (formerly Wilson High School) and an outdoor pool at Hearst Park. Our neighborhood Wegman’s is coming soon. Convenient living doesn’t get any better than this!
