Have you ever longed for the solitude of a low traffic street with soaring trees in your back garden and birds chirping above, but did not want to trade the convenience of nearby Metro & downtown pleasures! Here is the compromise you have waited for! Just over a mile from Metro yet close by Opal Daniels and Sligo Parks, while a short stroll to the Takoma Cooperative, the Town Hall and LIbrary! Sit on the elevated rear deck enjoying your place in the tree-tops and a delightful vantage point in the urban forest.
This 1946 Brick Cape Cod with a versatile and comfortable floor plan can meet the needs of a person with an aging parent who needs a bedroom and bath on the entry level with a flat entrance! There's also the possibility of an in-law suite on the lower level with a big bright bedroom and connected full bathroom. The main level shining oak wood floors greet you with a warm glow, while the original fireplace (with gas insert) and mantel give the Living Room a grand yet comfortable feeling from another age. A large bedroom has been remodeled as a den off the living room with pocket sliding doors that enable occasional bedroom use for special guests. For those who need a separate dining room, this serves the purpose well. The thermal windows allow a liberal amount of light to flood the front of the house morning to afternoon. The upper-level suite makes for a private bedroom and a den with room to add a bathroom for a great owner's suite here.
The kitchen has pleasing modern white cabinetry; some with fashionable glass doors. The granite counter tops, gas stove, dishwasher and double door refrigerator make this a great place to prepare dishes. Easy sliding door access from the kitchen to the deck is great for quiet enjoyment with morning coffee, or summer entertaining! The easily reached lower level has a generously sized recreation room and a huge walk-in closet! There's a BIG bedroom with bright windows and a connected bathroom. This can be a great in-law suite for family and friends alike. Teenagers will love it too! There is a laundry and storage utility area with a walkout level to the rear garden. Such a beautiful location, in the heart of the City of Takoma Park just a short stroll from all buyers want nearby: stores, restaurants, yoga, exercise classes, Town Hall events, and the Library! It's a hard to find home in a unique location that's move-in ready but also with room to expand! A real gem!
