Located a quarter way down the sweetest and quietest stretch of Kentucky Ave on the Hill, lies a 3 Bedroom and 2.5 Bath townhouse with PARKING that provides a lovely balance of expanded and updated, and historic true-to-DC details. Set back from the one-way street with tons of street parking for visitors, this home welcomes you with a sizable fenced front yard, new exterior paint, and darling curb appeal. Step into a well-proportioned first floor equipped with two sides of exposed brick, rooms perfectly partitioned by a center staircase, and sleek recessed lighting throughout. The living room is illuminated by two front-facing windows and warmed with hardwood floors. Past a hall with a coat closet, you’ll find a dining room with space for a 4-6 seater table. The kitchen is HUGE with copious counter space, gas cooking, shelving, and two walls of freshly-painted cabinets. The open dining room and kitchen area catch plenty of light from two windows in the dogleg. Finishing out the first floor is a generous half-bath, additional built-in shelving and stacked laundry. Outside, a no-maintenance trex porch with plenty of space to lounge, entertain and grill overlooks seasonal plantings and private and secure parking.Upstairs, the spacious front bedroom has a wall of built-ins, a big closet and two sunny windows. A second bedroom serves as a perfect guest room or WFH space. At the end of the exposed brick and skylight-lit hallway a wonderful, newly built primary suite includes a bathroom with stylish tile and glass-paneled shower, a walk-in closet with custom shelving and a bedroom with an oversized window. A hall bath rounds out the top floor and hosts a tub and double vanity. A newly re-finished crawl space, new tankless water heater, a young roof and recently installed hardscaping give new owners peace of mind that some big-ticket items are already taken care of. The home is positioned in one of the most ideal corners of Capitol Hill, a few blocks in either direction to the Historic Congressional Cemetery (and dog park!) and a newly rebuilt Safeway. Within easy walking distance (and inbounds) to Watkins School and Potomac and Stadium Armory Metro, you may just leave the car behind more than you’d think! This beautifully updated home on one of the most special one way in/out blocks of Capitol Hill, please come see all there is to love on Kentucky Ave SE!
Please note: a recent renovation expanded the finished square footage to over 1440 square feet(see floor plans), the tax record reflects previous square footage.
