Thoughtfully updated and lovingly maintained stately brick home in the heart of Brookland, this semi-detached corner property located between red and green line metro stations lives like a single-family house, with an abundance of light coming from the home’s many windows. The landscaped three-sided yard greets you with trees, blooming hydrangeas and mature flower beds. You will enjoy relaxing on the wide front porch overlooking a small peaceful park.
The gracious center hall opens to an elegant staircase with stained glass skylight at the staircase landing. Gleaming hardwood floors, combined with tiled floors in the kitchen and baths exist on the first and second floors. A gas fireplace and built-ins are featured in the spacious living room which boasts a bay window overlooking the shade and privacy of a mature cherry tree. The elegant dining room is perfectly sized for everyday meals with family or larger celebrations with guests. An updated galley kitchen, bright sunroom, and powder room complete the main level.
You will find three well-proportioned bedrooms and an updated full bath on the second floor, a large window lined sitting room/in home office adjoining the master, and a convenient ½ bath off the other large bedroom. And don’t miss the recently updated finished attic with two extra closets, built-in shelves, and lots of storage space –- spacious enough for a bedroom, office, or serene yoga space.
The updated lower level has new floors, new staircase, fresh paint, a laundry area, new sink and toilet, shelved storeroom, and access to a one-car garage complete with a new garage door and opener. Access to the garage is obtained by a private drive way which adjoins a flower garden. With 7’ ceilings, the basement could easily be finished off as a recreation room or in-law suite. Upgraded electrical panel, gas furnace, and gas hot water heater complete the basement.
Within a short walk are the Franciscan Monastery with lovely gardens, Turkey-Thicket Community Recreation Center including an inside pool and outdoor playground, and Brookland Arts area.
