If you like period homes, you will fall in love with this 1893 Four-level home with so many adorable original features combined with recent updates that have brought an elderly Grand Dame into the 21st Century for the lifestyle today’s buyers expect. Sellers now offer buyers a 0.25% buy down of their interest rate for acceptable offers (worth 1% of the loan amount in value). Featured as Fairview Cottage in a 1908 Takoma Park publication, this 4BR 2.5BA home offers an old-fashioned front porch complete with teak swing, along with a new open-plan kitchen featuring granite countertops, maple cabinets, and stainless steel appliances. It has hardwood floors throughout and offers an unusual oversized detached 2-car garage with automatic door opener and long driveway. Heating and cooling are provided by first-floor zoned-unit central air conditioning that is brand new 6/19, upper level separately zoned CAC and gas hot water radiator heating. The kitchen overlooks the dining room that has a decorative fireplace, room for a large dining table, and a rare Jefferson Window that opens up like a door and leads to a south-facing sunroom~a great place to enjoy sunny winter afternoons. The living room is grand, with tall ceilings and bay windows providing plenty of light that’s great for entertaining or just relaxing and reading! This is a great house for parties with an easy flow from living and dining rooms with open access to the kitchen. A half bathroom that doubles as a laundry room is located behind the kitchen and mudroom/pantry. The 2nd level has 3 good-sized bedrooms~one with a wall of bay windows and beautiful light~and a renovated hall bathroom, complete with heated towel rack! On the way up the stairs to the top level, you pass a signature that was uncovered by the sellers during a renovation, signed by Miss Mary Lang in 1902. This is a very special owners~ suite with wood floors, a built-in chest of drawers and closets, and a huge bathroom with a Jacuzzi style tub and space for a meditation area. It’s a great space to unwind in after a long day of work. The top two floors are cooled by a ductless AC system. The basement has lots of storage space and its own storm-cellar door exit. It’s ideal for a workshop and other hobbies with an old quarter bath there, too. The rear garden is large with a deck behind the house and room to garden. County tax property credits of 25% off the County property tax are available for repairs made to a property like this that maintains the historic integrity of the home. See: https://montgomeryplanning.org/planning/historic/tax-credit-program/ and in addition, State Tax Credits of up to 20% of the expense paid are also available. This covers roofing, structural repairs, foundation, electrical, plumbing, chimney and interior and exterior including porches. In addition, we are told by County officials it is very likely the garage may be converted to an Accessory Dwelling Unit if such is desired. You are just 0.5 of a mile and a 1-minute drive from Takoma Metro Station on the Red Line with a bus station beside it. It’s a short drive to Whole Foods in downtown Silver Spring, and you can walk to the Historic Takoma Park restaurants and shops or the Community Center and library. You are close by Montgomery College Silver Spring/Takoma Campus on Takoma Avenue that includes a Cultural Arts Center with public concerts. Three public parks are within strolling distance, Jequie Park is around the corner, SSI Park has 4 acres with tennis courts, and ballparks and Jesup Blair Park (accessed by a footbridge over Fenton Street) has 15 acres with playgrounds, a soccer field, 2 lighted basketball courts, 2 lighted tennis courts, picnic areas, and an open amphitheater. Children can walk to Takoma Park Elementary and Middle Schools, while the high school is Montgomery Blair. Don’t miss this opportunity to own a piece of Victorian splendor in the Historic District of Takoma Park City!
