What a pleasure to tour this 1908 Arts and Crafts Bungalow with a floor plan that's traditional yet, very adaptable for today's lifestyles! It sports gorgeous Chestnut/Oak woodwork trim, wood floors (gumwood and oak), high ceilings (9 foot 4 inches main level), and a spacious Master Suite. Located in the Historic District of the City of Takoma Park, Montgomery County, it is just a half-mile stroll to Takoma Metro Station. As you enter, a period wood front door with old fashioned bell turn greets you with custom stained glass above. Note the Historic Takoma plaque on the left of the front porch. A huge traditional front porch welcomes you and inside a double living room is ideal for entertaining. These rooms feature crown moldings and recessed lighting. A period gas-burning fireplace will be a centerpiece for warm winter evenings! Pretty wood floors throughout the main and upper levels impress and lead to a good-sized dining room with big picture window, crown molding and plenty of space for a large dining table. The kitchen was updated in the '90s by architect Paul Treseder and peacefully looks to a huge parklike back yard that has an old water feature and a small stream and has historic azaleas plants! The Azalea Society of America stated in 1979 that the Azaleas and Rhododendron plantings are probably rare and no longer commercially available and seeded from the famous Glendale Hybrids developed by Mr. B.Y. Morrison, who was once a neighbor. The kitchen has a wall of west-facing windows, Corian countertops, hardwood floors, and maple wood cabinets. Stainless high-end appliances are featured including a newly installed LG Microwave and a Wolf Oven. There's plenty of room for a kitchen table with that garden view. Note the original pass through the wood serving hatch and original wood kitchen swing door. There's a deck off the kitchen too for outdoor entertaining. The whole level is ideal for big Summer parties with a hidden deck on the lower basement level too. Original details on the main level include a pocket door (as is) at the end of the hallway. The large oak tree immediately behind the house has a permit for removal pending and the sellers plan to have it removed. A useful main level bedroom and full bathroom make for a great place for guests or a home office. The bathroom is equipped with a frameless glass shower as well as Waterworks fixtures and tile.Upstairs 3 good sized bedrooms and 2 bathrooms can accommodate a growing family. The owner's suite is spacious with a walk-in closet; full bathroom with custom cherry-wood vanity, Walker Zanger and Waterworks tile, and Grohe fixtures; and beautiful oak wood floors. The windows at the upper-level rear are recent and built to hurricane-proof standard. There are pull-down attic steps. The hall bathroom features an original claw foot tub and separate toilet (Toto toilets are featured). This house was the home of the First City Librarian, Mrs. F.L. Pratt, who lived here from 1924 to 1971. The Library was founded in 1935 and for 5 years she operated it without pay. She continued to work there for 28 years. The house was later owned by Lou D'Ovidio (former council member) and was featured in 5 House and Garden tours for the garden.The current owners have tastefully updated the house, adding Central Air Conditioning, the heating system is economical gas-fired heat, and the roof was replaced in 2017. The basement has plenty of storage space, an updated half bathroom, and a big Recreation Room for projects and play! At the rear is a huge old fashioned root cellar one side, with an exit to a level walk out to the rear yard. The right side driveway is long holding several cars and leads to a very old garage that is sold strictly as is, but has electric and may be improved. The garden is huge sporting a small stream and pond and a hill of green trees and shrubs. There's a security system and a NEST outdoor camera system. Home Warranty. Hard-to-find period Arts & Crafts!
