$1,185,000 1527 A St NE, Washington, DC 20002
1st Open Sun 2/27 2-4pm Masks REQUIRED by all. Delightful 4BR/2BA bayfront Victorian home with family room offers aprox 2250sf of FLEXIBLE living space on 3 levels, solar panels, a lovely dogwood tree out front and a fully-fenced backyard, and is located on a quiet street just minutes from Maury Elementary and Lincoln Park.
An original tiled entry vestibule opens to entry foyer, with hardwood floors throughout the main 2 levels of the home. At left, the living room has a large bay window nook and a built-in electric fireplace. Pocket doors separate the skylit center hall from the LARGE dining room as needed. Great for entertaining while cooking, the open kitchen is separated from dining area by a peninsula and features granite countertops, stainless steel appliances (all new within past 2 years), gas cooking, an island and subway tiled backsplash.
Step out to small balcony for morning coffee or a glass of wine after work, overlooking the fully-fenced backyard. A gate to the alley makes it easy for bikes and strollers.
Upstairs, past the linen closet, is a generously-sized front BR with a wall of closets, plus a bright bay to curl up with a book (or WFH). Middle BR has plenty of space for bed and a desk, with window nook sitting area. The tiled hall bath has a tub and double vanity sink, and the rear BR has a bay atop the balcony below.
Connecting lower level is flexible. Spacious family/rec room in the middle has plenty of room to unwind and relax, plus a nook for WFH, and bonus storage under the stairs. At the front is a large FLEXIBLE use room with bay and walk-in closet: a 4th BR, a very large playroom, or a massive home office, and the 2nd full bath is quite convenient for guests. At rear are a laundry room with full-size side by side washer/dryer and storage space plus utilities. Rest easy in this home, knowing the oven and microwave are from 2021, fridge and dishwasher are from 2020, sellers have their HVAC serviced 2x/year, and there is a new TPO roof from 2018 with a 15 year warranty. Best of all, solar panels were installed in March 2019. This 7.92kW system is owned by seller and transfers with the sale of the property, with SRECS going to DC Solar Ventures for a total of 15 years. The system generates 9-10 MW of electricity/year, providing roughly $1000/year in savings, and sellers report average electric bills of around $74/month since going solar.
Enjoy living on a quiet street, a short stroll to everything: coffee at the Hill Cafe is at the end of the block, Lincoln Park is 3 blocks, and Maury Elementary is 5 blocks. A few blocks east are the tennis and basketball courts at Eastern, Metro, 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. A few blocks south and east find you at the Pretzel Bakery, the new Safeway redevelopment, the new multi-venue dining and drinking consortium The Roost, another Metro stop, and Eastern Market. Carpe Diem!
