Behind a hidden bookcase lies a fully contained apartment with 2 closets, a full bathroom, a Murphy bed/desk combo, a full kitchen, and separate driveway access. This rental suite generates $20,000 annually but could yield over $25,000 on short-term rentals.

This home, though not a typical stick-built construction, features a 1938 brick exterior transformed into a modern dwelling with a complete interior overhaul in 2021. The owners spared no expense, implementing upgrades like Rockwool insulation for superior insulation and soundproofing, along with new electrical, plumbing, HVAC/ductwork, a tankless water heater, and a new roof.

Externally, the house boasts touches like HardieBoard on dormers, an Acre Grain Deck, freshly landscaped grounds, a new fence, and a striking 30-foot mural by local artist Nia Keturah Calhoun. The backyard is a lush garden oasis with flowering tress and perennial flowers strategically planted to provide an ever changing backdrop with vibrant blooms from spring through the fall. The garden has more zones than we can count and can comfortably host gatherings for up to 75 guests, offering additional income opportunities for entrepreneurs. Situated in Takoma Park's coveted "Between the Creeks" enclave, the property offers proximity to parks, community amenities, and easy access to downtown Takoma Park, Silver Spring, and transportation options including the Metro's red and forthcoming purple lines.
