Property remarks

Some homes are renovated in a hurry and some you step inside and feel craftsmen have lingered longer and produced something special!  This is that home! Though built in 1913 originally, this home has just been rebuilt top to bottom – every level with attention and care. The developer worked closely with a local Takoma Park designer who thoughtfully selected all the beautiful transitional details and finishes throughout the home. . The original front porch is updated with Brazilian Oak wood floors.  Feel your hot buttons pressed as you step inside the bright living room with a refurbished wood-burning fireplace with a wood mantel!  High ceilings and pretty oak wood floors throughout.  Custom lighting is special at every level of this home. Feel the bright Quartz counters with a huge island and lots of countertops,  dark stainless appliances, and a super Bosch 36 inch gas stove with pot filler over it, to save lifting heavy pots, make the kitchen a joy to be in. The oversized kitchen sink with an unlacquered brass bridge faucet will slowly and beautifully patina over time. There’s tons of storage too in the new Oak Tone kitchen cabinets. There’s a convenient half bathroom tucked behind the entrance foyer and off the kitchen a breakfast nook with custom-built seating – great for less formal gatherings.  Beautiful dining room filled with light and ideal for entertaining overlooking the yard and deck – bright and away from the bustle inside.  Then for 3 seasons entertaining step onto the rear deck overlooking the garden! Many special moments await you here!  One level up is a relaxing owner’s suite with a reclaimed barn door to a roomy bathroom with a large walk-in shower with double vanity and a beautiful slate tile floor and walk-in closet. There are 4.5 bathrooms throughout and custom finishes are in all of them. New wood floors are on every level and compliment the period of the original house. The two other bedrooms on the 2nd level are a good size, as is the hall bathroom. There’s a separate laundry room here too.  The “attic” level has wide bright walk-up stairs and a private hideaway with a bedroom, den, and large bathroom.  The house is 2 zoned for heating and cooling, so you can get better control of the temperatures over the different levels. The roof, 200 amp electrical system, heating systems, hot water tank, and plumbing are all brand new!   The lower level is a special place with a super “In-Law” suite that any parent will be happy to occupy.  It’s got a quartz countertop kitchenette, full bathroom, and private bedroom with an egress window. The large Recreation Room makes for a great multi-purpose living space. The walkout at the rear of the basement is pleasingly flat with a private patio space outside. Who does not want to save on utilities!  This home helps with spray foam insulation in the attic and walls.  This home meets the annual energy cost requirements of Section 405 of the 2018 International Energy Conservation Code based on the climate zone of 4A. In fact, this home surpasses the requirements by 16.5%! You are in the Historic District of the City of Takoma Park – steps from the Town Hall, Police Station, Elementary and Middle Schools, Takoma Food Coop, many restaurants and Metro is a pleasant walk away along pretty historic streets.  Discover small-town living from the July 4th parade that comes close by the house, to the Halloween Parade that children adore! Walk to many festivals (in normal times) such as the Street Festival in October. There’s off-street parking for 4 or 5 good-sized vehicles and a storage shed in the rear. You will enjoy this home for years to come, in a Historic District, with a historic exterior and all the modern and new amenities inside you will ever need.  Not to be missed!
