In dynamic Columbia Heights, this picturesque row home on a charming block close to the Metro offers hardwood floors and period details throughout. Bibliophiles will rejoice at the library filled with built-in bookshelves, and antique lovers will covet the original carved mantles at the heart of the living and dining rooms. In the dining room, the mantle is cleverly repurposed as a display cabinet for your treasures. A powder room with slate floors and wainscoting is conveniently tucked between the kitchen and dining room. Grow herbs on the windowsill in the crisp, white kitchen lined with quartz counters and a cheerful tile floor. Bay windows fill the spacious owner’s bedroom with light. There’s ample room for a reading nook or a home office under the windows, and a custom closet with vintage barn doors provides plenty of storage. The timeless black-and-white full bath features classic subway tiles. Overnight guests will appreciate the lower-level in-law suite with a separate entrance, living area, full kitchen and separate bedroom. The inviting front porch surrounded by seasonal flowers, the second-story deck and a back patio offer delightful spots for relaxing or dining outdoors. Enjoy all of the neighborhood amenities, from fine dining to fast casual restaurants, Target and Giant to a vegan bakery and two farmers’ markets.
