$1,415,000 243 12th St SE, Washington, DC 20003
**Deadline to review offers Tuesday 3/15 at 6PM***
Welcome to 243 12th St SE, a generously sized porch-front townhome that offers the very best of Capitol Hill living with perfectly preserved classic details, modern conveniences, and positioning on the loveliest path to Lincoln Park. This home greets with a blooming front yard and breezy porch which invites you to stay and watch the neighborhood stroll by. The entrance to this stately home welcomes with a perfectly proportioned living room adorned with sunny windows and warm hardwood floors. A beautiful original staircase with authentic woodwork and preserved pocket doors create a natural threshold leading you into the formal dining room with soaring ceilings and a dog-leg window. In the rear of the first floor you'll find a chef's kitchen with a brand new range, stainless appliances, stone countertops and a half-bath for your visitors. The path upstairs is illuminated by a huge skylight flooding sunlight into three generously sized bedrooms and one proper full bath. The mix of historic touches and current convenience continues with over-door transoms, a deep linen closet and soulful hardwood. A huge rec-room basement packs a seriously clever storage punch with custom built-in closet systems and a laundry/utility room large enough to work around in. A second full bath rounds out the lowest level, providing guest space or work from home flexibility to the roomy rec area. Out back you'll find a sunny rear porch and a yard that provides recreation and outdoor dining options. Beyond the fence this current owner and the owners previous have enjoyed alley parking for many years without disruption, though not deeded with the home. This home's next owners can immediately enjoy peace of mind that big ticket items like new HVAC and laundry equipment and a newly rubberized coated roof have already been taken care of. With the Hill's most coveted location two stop signs to Lincoln Park, a stroll to Watkins, and mere blocks to Eastern Market and Metro we welcome you to visit and wonder if it gets any better than this to find a beautiful home in Capitol Hill!
