Welcome to this sunny, top floor two bedroom + den, 1 bath condo with a huge balcony nestled in the heart of Le Droit Park. The location and building is steeped with history! 512 U Street was once the home of Willis Richardson, a prolific and acclaimed playwright.
Walking into this residence you will immediately notice the rich hardwood floors that greet you. To the right is the open living and dining room that is bathed in light. The current owners installed new windows in 2022 (with the exception of one) as well as the sliding glass door that opens from the living room onto a huge deck overlooking the massive landscaped common yard. The newly renovated kitchen created additional storage options and features gray cabinets, white and gray Quartz countertops, beautiful backsplash and stainless-steel appliances. As you make your way down the wall to the bedrooms and den (which can be a third bedroom), you will pass the in-unit washer and dryer, as well as 3 closets for ample storage space. All three bedrooms have double door closets and feature large windows. The updated bathroom is at the end of the hall and features a tub/shower combination. The HVAC unit was replaced in 2021. The lower level of the building has extra storage as well as a room for bike storage. **Outdoor decks are currently being upgraded and painted.
Convenience is at your fingertips at 512 U St NW. Located just .4 miles from the Shaw Metro, numerous bus lines and bike share locations, commuting is a breeze! You’re also just blocks from great coffee shops like Big Bear, Farmers markets, some of DC’s top restaurants, nightlife of U Street and the new Whole Foods.
