1736 BAY ST SE,
GORGEOUS super WIDE designer-showpiece 4BR(3BR+lg offc)/2.5BA home boasts 2432sf of living space on 2 levels with beautiful heart pine floors throughout, amazing entertaining space including separate family room addition on rear, deep back patio with a PARKING possibility and new solar panels. Main level features lovely living room with built-ins and gas fireplace, a powder room, and MASSIVE Architectural Digest-worthy kitchen with stainless steel appliances including double wall ovens and a wine fridge, walk-in pantry, tiled backsplash, Cambria quartz counters and huge center island breakfast bar that seats 4. Large dining area can accommodate 2-20 for dinner, and glass pocket doors open onto very large family/gathering room with a wall of windows onto the patio. Upstairs the bright front ensuite primary bedroom has a wall of closets, tall ceilings, and an ensuite bath featuring double sink vanity, soaking tub plus separate stall shower and a skylight. Hallway features amazing storage, plus conveniently-located washer/dryer, and hall bath with tub. The 4th BR/office is spacious and has 2 large skylights. Each of the 2 rear bedrooms have a wall of windows, and are large enough for WFH options, too.
Out back a fully-fenced, wide and deep rear patio is the perfect place for socially distanced al fresco gatherings (could become parking but has never been needed). Rest comfortably, knowing the ductless mini-splits have all been recently serviced. Solar panels were installed in Fall 2020 (owned by seller and transfer with sale of the property, with SRECS going to Solar Ventures for 15 years), with sellers reporting average energy bills of around $20/month since. Enjoy living on a quiet porch-lined street, a short stroll to Metro, the Pretzel Bakery, the new Safeway redevelopment, the new multi-venue dining and drinking consortium The Roost, the tennis and basketball courts at Eastern, new ballfields and upcoming redevelopment of RFK and Reservation 13, Congressional Cemetery, plus easy access to the Anacostia River Bike Trail, the Arboretum, or BW Parkway/I-95. Carpe Diem!
