Prime Location in the Heart of the City! You can’t get a better location than this in the City of Takoma Park Historic District. Just around the corner from the Sunday Farmer’s Market, Takoma BevCo for your coffee, and a choice of several restaurants like Busboys & Poets, Kin-Da, Roscoe’s, and Cielo Rojo. Just a short 4-block stroll to Takoma Metro Station, and with a bus stop nearby, it’s easy to be without a car or give up one of them! This 1930 brick Craftsman semi-detached beauty sports 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms over 4 levels, with in-law suite potential and approximately 2700 finished square feet. Joined at the hip to 6843 Eastern, which is also for sale, there’s the chance to have two side-by-side properties for family and friends to be close to one another. Or buy one for an investment and possible condo conversion one day. Tall ceilings, bright rooms, hardwood, and a living room fireplace invite you into an updated home with fresh paint, new appliances, and refinished wood floors. Natural light floods the rooms in the afternoons. The flow is great from front to back – a living room with wood burning fireplace, a good-sized separate dining room with shiny wood floors, and a super newly renovated table space kitchen overlooking a magical garden with something to look at in every season. Wood floors continue on the 2nd floor along with large bedrooms and updated bathroom. Lots of perennials that will come back year after year. There’s an unusually deep landscaped garden w/space for vegetables too. In this deep yard, sitting under the stars, it’s easy to forget you are right at the District of Columbia border. The charming brick exterior has a balcony on the 2nd level off the larger bedroom and, combined with the inviting front porch & large rear garden, there’s lots of outdoor living space overlooking mature trees and fruit trees. There is a sunny guest/in-law suite in the basement and off-street parking. The house was recently rented for $4600 per month by the seller. Central heating and air conditioning are featured. This home has a very high 89 Very Walkable score, along with a Good Transit score and a Very Bikable score. Easy access to the excellent elementary and middle schools here, and the Municipal Center, library, and Takoma Food Coop are within walking distance. The stunning hiking and bicycling trails of Rock Creek and Sligo Creek Parks are also nearby. This is a great opportunity to be in the sought-after Historic District of Takoma Park, steps from the activities of Takoma, DC. A short trip from all that the big city has to offer with the amenities of this popular little city. It is an urban oasis!
