With a large front porch to unwind and relax on, this beautiful Wardman-style home sits up and away from the street, sheltered by mature trees and across from a tringle park. Step through the entry vestibule w/beautiful original tiled wainscoting, to a flexible use open living/dining area, w/wood floors throughout. The front dining space is defined by the reverse-side stairs. Their beautiful woodwork provides a backdrop at one end of the WIDE and DEEP living room, w/a built-in bookcase and large window on the other end. These living/dining spaces could easily be swapped, depending on entertaining needs.
Step through a large floor-to-ceiling pantry area to the right, w/a discreetly-located powder room at left, to a spacious kitchen w/stainless appliances including gas cooktop, granite countertops, a breakfast bar and 3 windows. Full-light door opens onto a coveted screened-in porch, looking onto a brick patio for grilling and entertaining, and freestanding brick GARAGE that fits a CRV-sized vehicle. There is an electric door opener, and an electric cable was run from basement electrical panel to basement door to facilitate possible future electric car charging. The wooden gate to the alley, abutting the garage, makes it easy for bikes, strollers, or mobility issues.
Up the skylit stairs, a dramatic and beautiful primary ensuite bedroom boasts soaring ceilings, 5 windows, gorgeous heart pine floors, and floor-to-ceiling built-in storage. A serene ensuite bath has double sink vanity, marble floor and countertop, frameless glass stall shower, subway tile, and amazing built-in storage. A large hall closet is just outside. The 2nd bedroom fits a double bed, w/space behind the door for a small dresser, and the dual windowed 3rd bedroom easily accommodates a twin or crib and MIGHT be able to be expanded over the porch. The skylit 2nd full bath has tub, glass subway tile, vanity and a conveniently-located stacked front-loading washer/dryer (1 of 2) w/additional storage above.
Connecting 1BR/1BA basement w/front and rear doors is flexible for use as part of the house, or Airbnb, or possible rental (CofO from 2011). Large open living area w/custom shelving along one wall and tiled floor makes for a great family room, w/a nice WFH desk area too. Spacious, open full kitchen has oodles of Corian countertops, plus DW, electric stove and microwave. The bedroom is carpeted, and a very large tiled bathroom has tub and 2nd stacked washer/dryer. Rest easy knowing that sellers insulated the attic space and replaced all the lead pipes when the property was renovated.
Enjoy FLEXIBLE living spaces and a primo location across the street from a pocket park, Fragers, around the corner from Watkins Elementary, one block to Little Pearl and the Hill Center, three blocks to Metro and Eastern Market, and five blocks to Lincoln Park, with Bikeshares close by. Carpe Diem!
