Sorry Open CANCELLED. Seller received compelling offers. Masks REQUIRED by ALL! Opportunity knocks! Rare 20? wide house boasting 2700sf of FLEXIBLE space (per DC tax records) plus parking pad, on a coveted Hill East block, to simply enjoy now, or to add finishing touches to become your 4BR/3.5BA plus basement family room dream home. Blending modern amenities with historic details, this lovely 2-3BR/3.5BA is on a quiet one-way street in the close-knit Barney Circle community, known for block parties, summer movie nights, and Santa visits, yet is just a 5min walk to Metro and The Roost dining and drinking consortium.

Sip lemonade on the front porch and chat with neighbors. Step inside to a large entry foyer opening onto spacious front living room with wood shutters. With the perfect combo of central AC plus toasty radiator heat, this super wide home has tall ceilings, crown molding, original trim, doors, gorgeous heart pine wood flooring throughout. An open plan dining room/kitchen features stainless steel appliances, subway tile backsplash, quartz countertops, and an electric induction cooktop on an island with seating to watch the culinary magic happen. At rear is a large flexible open breakfast/sitting/WFH area, plus discreetly-located powder room. Step outside to a large wide deck for al fresco entertaining, with a parking pad below.

The FLEXIBLE upstairs is currently 2 large BRs + large windowed office + large windowed walk-in closet at rear, 2 full BAs + 2 hall closets. A large and wide front BR (future ensuite?) has 3 windows, and the skylit hall BA (future ensuite?) with tub has flexi storage niche that is a convenient 2nd W/D hookup. Spacious rear BR opens onto a large bright and flexible WFH office/crib room, connecting to a large walk in closet with custom shelving systems, and to the 2nd full BA with unique steam shower.
Huge connecting basement family room with the 3rd full bathroom, laundry area and 2nd fridge awaits your finishing touches, with plenty of room to add 4th BR or workout room or WFH space, too. Very large storage area across rear makes a perfect place to store bikes, strollers, make a workroom, or perhaps expand. Rest easy knowing that the roof was replaced in October 2021, rear deck was overhauled in July 2021, front porch was completely rebuilt in 2015 and the A/C is 6 years new.
Enjoy the community vibe, living 1 block to historic Congressional Cemetery, 2 blocks to The Roost and the Metro, and a short stroll to Watkins Elementary, the newly renovated Safeway, and Barracks Row, with easy access to bike trails or the highway. Whether you call this Hill East or Barney Circle, it is time to call it home and to Carpe your Diem!
