Sited on a historic block of Ledroit Park, this Victorian beauty offers classic turn-of-the-century style while incorporating design elements found in more newly constructed properties. The facade is period - but the interior is modern day. Once you step onto the front porch you realize its ample size and start to imagine making memories here chatting with neighbors or simply enjoying a cup of coffee in the mornings. Upon entering the home, you'll notice that the light dances on the newly installed hardwood floors. The living room is anchored by a gas fireplace surrounded by custom built-ins and connects to a large dining area. Further investigation leads us into the newly renovated kitchen where no expense was spared - upgraded Kitchenaid appliances, quartz counters, porcelain tiled floors, and the most inventive use of cabinet space and ceiling height. There is also direct access to the fenced rear yard - a true sanctuary - with electric awning for shade or protection from the elements along with mature trees which provide privacy and a retreat from the sun.
The rich hardwoods continue upstairs where you'll find three well-designed bedrooms. A primary suite with an abundance of sunlight - which also includes black out shades for the mornings when you want to sleep in. The attached primary bathroom is well-appointed with a large vanity for storage and a soaking tub. The guest bedroom easily holds a queen-sized bed and overlooks the rear yard. Finally, the third bedroom is great for guests, kids, or its current use as a home office. This level also houses a hall bathroom with tub, full sized laundry with storage shelves, and a linen closet.
Two car off-street parking is easily accessible down a very wide and paved alley - not that you'll need it with so much in walking distance! You're at the confluence of Ledroit Park, Bloomingdale, Shaw, & U Street which puts you just two blocks from the Metro, three blocks from the new Whole Foods, the movie theatre, the Howard Theatre, and dozens of restaurants and shopping nearby.
Finally, the newly installed solar panels allow the new homeowner to save on utility costs while also helping to save the environment.
