This charming Petworth Tudor style row home, built in 1937, has retained a traditional layout and an abundance of original artisanal details, which have been seamlessly incorporated into a stunning renovation. Lovingly updated, restored, and maintained by an Architect-owner, the home reflects warmth and charm throughout the unique spaces. From the adorable front porch, you are greeted by the curved front door, with entry into a welcoming foyer. The living room features a working wood burning stone fireplace, rich original hardwood floors, unpainted millwork, and irreplaceable built in china cabinets with leaded glass doors. A separate dining room has plenty of room for a good sized gathering. A powder room for guests has been tucked away by the switchback stairs. The kitchen has been expanded, redesigned, and smartly outfitted with ceiling height cabinets, Samsung and KitchenAid appliances, and granite counters. The upper level has three bedrooms, two full bathrooms with skylights, including an ensuite in the master bedroom. Additionally, there is a cedar-lined closet and a linen closet. Designed for play and relaxation, the lower level has plenty of room for a large sectional sofa and stays cozy with a wood burning stove. There is another half bath on this level, as well as a generously sized laundry and utility room with an extra fridge and loads of additional storage. The private back yard incorporates a new deck and brick patio, and fresh cedar fencing. The brick garage has electricity and a recent automatic garage door. Systemic and whole house upgrades include a high velocity central air system, refinished wood floors and millwork, ceiling fans installed throughout, fireplace renewed with new fire brick and a new flue, and the chimney tuck pointed, as well as electrical upgrades, including a new panel. Both red and green line Metros are within a twelve minute walk.
