Absolutely charming, historic Dutch Colonial from 1918, in the heart of Historic Old Town Takoma Park, is completely updated yet retains all the original charm. This storybook gem is just one block to all that downtown Takoma Park has to offer. Enter from the welcoming front porch with all new composite decking and railing and a new Arts & Crafts style front door. The spacious, natural light-filled living room features a large, original bay window with Arts & Crafts, vertical 3/1 panes. There is a wall of built-in bookshelves and original hardwood floors, and French doors lead to a study off the living room – ideal for working from home – that can also serve as a playroom. The large dining room opens into the kitchen to allow simultaneous cooking and entertaining, the way we live now! The completely renovated, light-filled kitchen features brand new oak flooring, white shaker-style cabinets, quartz counters, a pantry to provide plenty of storage, decorative tile backsplash, space for a breakfast table, stainless appliances, and a peninsula cooking station with 5-burner gas stove. There is a new glass door to the refurbished deck – enjoy privacy while you eat outside surrounded by the trees! Also on this level is a renovated full bath with stylish tile and fixtures. Walk up the hardwood yellow pine staircase with hand-carved baluster, and you’ll find two spacious bedrooms with large closets and windows galore, and a renovated full bathroom with dual sink vanity and beautifully tiled shower. The lower level with separate entrance features a bright, above-grade family room or home theatre, a laundry/storage room, third bedroom, and third full bath. The fenced rear yard has a large silver maple and three beautiful cherry trees that fill the air with pink blossoms every spring, and in the front yard, a beech tree allows leaf-peeping from the bedroom window, as well as quince, hydrangea, nandina, and azalea bushes. Ideal walkable location on a quiet street, yet only one block to the shops and restaurants of Old Town Takoma and an easy (less than 1/2 mile!) walk to METRO. Stroll to the Farmers Market, Takoma Hardware, Takoma Bev Co, Mark’s Kitchen, Roscoe’s, Kin Da, Trattoria da Lina, Scissor & Comb, the Gazebo, The Girl and The Vine, and so much more. You cannot beat this location!
