1443 CONSTITUTION AVENUE NE, WASHINGTON, DC 20002
Do not be fooled by street name, this sweet 3BR/2BA end-unit home is on the half block where Constitution curves away, and the traffic goes onto NC Ave instead. She sits back from the street, sheltered by a crape myrtle-filled triangle park, with a front porch to relax on and enjoy the greenery, pleasant open spaces inside including GORGEOUS heart pine floors and lovely original doors, CAC, a connecting basement, a rear patio, solar panels, and a primo location steps to Maury Elementary.
A generous entry hall with dramatic light fixture opens to a large living room with 2 windows and reverse-pull shades. French doors open into the dining room, where a peninsula and fun light fixtures delineate the open kitchen, which features stainless appliances, quartz countertops, subway tile backsplash, and a pantry closet. Open space makes it easy to entertain while cooking, and the large window onto the back patio makes it bright. Upstairs are 2 large bedrooms plus a 3rd bedroom perfect for an office or crib room, a deep linen closet, and a hall bath with clawfoot tub, wainscoting and pennyroll tile. Connecting basement is flexible: use as family/rec room, with the 2nd full bath at rear making it great for guests, too. Bonus cat cutout is under the stairs, in front of the large storage/laundry room with W/D and laundry sink, plus a door to the patio.
The fenced rear patio with gate to the alley provides easy access for bikes and strollers in a well-loved pedestrian alley. Flagstone paver and pea gravel patio are nice for outside entertaining, and the space has easily accommodated a baby pool and multiple bicycles. A power purchase agreement provides electricity at a reduced rate through a solar panel lease with Solar Solutions. In addition to green energy, they also provide shade to the roof.
Enjoy living steps to Maury, The Hill Cafe, Lincoln Park, and a short stroll to the new Safeway, The Pretzel Bakery, The Roost and H Street. A few blocks east are the tennis and basketball courts at Eastern, new ballfields and upcoming redevelopment of RFK and Reservation 13, plus easy access to the Anacostia River Bike Trail, the Arboretum, or BW Parkway/I-95. Carpe diem!
