Do you like to live close to nature? This adorable 1948 Brick Colonial in a parkside setting backing to Sligo Creek may be the home you have searched for! From your living room, you can delight in a serene wooded view through the oversized-picture window. When the leaves fall you have a water view of Sligo Creek. A short walk to miles of hiking/biking trails, lets you enjoy four seasons of nature creekside! Shrub lovers will much appreciate the two mature camellia plants at each side of the front door that will bloom in winter/early Spring and the two dogwood trees in the front yard that are covered in white blooms in April and the Rhododendron bush is covered with purple flowers then too – Spring is beautiful here! Two nearby children’s playgrounds, bookend the block. Located in the popular “Between the Creeks” neighborhood, it is just 1.5 miles from downtown Takoma Park Historic District with its restaurants and stores leading to the Metro Station while still tucked away from the hustle and bustle. Short and quick commute to Union Station, Capitol Hill, and the White House in Washington, D.C. The all brick home is freshly painted with newly- refinished floors on the main and upper levels. The living room has a wood-burning fireplace and original mantel complemented by a recent slate hearth. A separate dining room adjoins a galley kitchen with potential for conversion to a joint kitchen dining area. Recent kitchen updates include a granite countertop and appliances. Three bedrooms with closets and hardwood floors and a full bath with more beautiful woodland views complete the upstairs level.nnThe basement is unfinished and has an extra storage room under the old porch. It offers great possibilities for additional living space with a walk-out rear exit. Economical gas-forced air heating is featured along with central air-conditioning, and a gas water heater – all are fairly recent. There’s a recent full-sized washer/dryer too. The roof is about 4 years old. Many homes in the area have added 1 or 2 story additions to the rear and there is certainly space to offer that possibility with a lot size of 6,062 square feet. Imagine floor-to-ceiling park views with a main level family room addition on the rear leading to a deck – many possibilities here! This is a warm and cozy home at a super price with an opportunity for future expansion in a highly-favored parkside location.nNot to be missed!
