Captivating Arts & Crafts Bungalow in the sought-after Historic District of Takoma Park that's a short stroll to the downtown restaurants and stores but just 0.6 of a mile from Takoma Metro Station. The superb location is improved by being on a low-traffic street with off-street parking for 2 cars and on a big 0.20 of an acre lot. The old-fashioned full-width porch welcomes you with a swing to enjoy the breeze from. Inside wood carved in a tradesperson era, long gone, greets you - the wood banisters and wood floors stick in your memory. It's a sizable foyer where you can greet guests and tradespeople without having the whole house on display. The living room, dining room, and library are each a separate room but connected by open spaces and lots of windows - so bright and airy all the way through this lovely home. The kitchen is comfortable, not new, but the cabinets and counters are where you need them and the gas stove, refrigerator, and sink form a good triangle for efficient cooking. An old-fashioned pantry may make you want to start jam and chutney-making again. What's not to like about a two-story addition that brings a super light family room with hardwood floors onto the floorplan and a 2nd set of connecting stairs to the upper level. In between all of the excitement is a full bathroom with custom tilework and a big walk-in shower. This home has great main-level flow whether you like casual fun or something more formal. It will work for you. Fresh paint throughout the two levels with varied colors and tones keeps things interesting too. Come up the front formal wood stairs and two good size bedrooms with ornate curves and nooks and crannies greet you. The hall bath here is updated with a new sink, floors, and lights. The claw foot tub is great for soaking away the aches and pains. Move on into the sitting room that doubles as a great office space and provides closets for the additional bedroom that is large, luminous, and warming. That sitting room has space for an owner bathroom suite to be installed there if you are so inclined.
The basement is not a showpiece, but it has a huge hobby room and a big office with a level-to-ground entrance beside it that makes for a potential home office that does not need visitors to trapse through the house. It can also double as a guest room. There's cold storage underneath the front porch here too with lots of room. A big laundry area and a small utility area finish off the basement.
The garden is big but manageable with trees and a climbing set in the rear and a small water feature at the side. The front has a Maple tree that burns gold and fire in the Fall and will be your enjoyment for years to come as it grows older.
Gas-fired hot water heating and a gas hot water heater are complemented by a brand-new Central Air System.
This warm and glowing home brings immediate joy. It's well-sized but not huge spaces, winter light, and summer shade are all rolled into an adorable Bungalow on one of the best blocks in the City. It's not to be missed!
