Penchant for porch fronts? 1448 D St NE offers the rare opportunity to find a home that has been fully renovated with the architectural details from yesteryear preserved. This 1925 home was fully renovated in 2011 by Quest Builders with original details such as restored wood floors, original newel post, and exposed brick, and has been lovingly maintained and updated by its owners. The front porch is elevated up and back from the street and offers space for seating, bikes, strollers, and a perch to enjoy morning coffee or an evening spot to greet your guests. A formal entry, separate from the living room, offers a landing to the welcoming living room basked with southern sun and opens to a bright dining room with easy seating for six. The updated kitchen boasts plentiful storage and counter space, a large and gracious peninsula that opens to the dining room and its very own kitchen window overlooking the back deck and yard. The large sliding door to the deck off the dining room and the layout of the main floor offer an inviting and intimate living space as well as a great space for hosting gatherings. The upper level provides 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms (one ensuite), custom and clever built-ins that exude charm and maximize storage and space. Can there be more? Yes! The lower level provides an inviting family room perfect for game and movie nights, a private and spacious 3rd bedroom, a full bath, and a laundry room that walks out to the backyard - easy to navigate your bikes and gear. The large shaded backyard offers a versatile space with garden space and a party/play area that can double as off-street parking with secured fencing and gate. Walk to Lincoln Park, bike trails, and to established as well as new developments.
