In the heart of the City yet on a low traffic cul-de-sac yet next to Takoma-Piney Branch Park, the Town Hall, Library, and Elementary and Middle Schools – it’s a dream location. This 1942 Brick Cape Cod has a bumped out kitchen giving you the tablespace you always wanted and lots of counter space with quiet views of the cottage garden rear yard. It even has a mudroom off the kitchen that’s great for bad weather days. Wood floors greet you on the main level in decent shape and there is a bright separate dining room. Enjoy mostly thermal windows and great efficiency with gas-fired forced-air heating, central air conditioning, and solar panels (leased) at the south-facing rear for added efficiency. The gas hot water heater was newly installed in March 2020 and the furnace is the respected Carrier brand. The roof was new in August 2019. The main level bathroom is updated with recent tile and fixtures and there are two main level bedrooms with wood floors. Upstairs a big bedroom runs the length of the house. Look at other homes nearby and see how many have raised the roof at the back or the whole roof to install an owner’s suite here and more. Do it now or later on as you choose to expand your lifestyle! The basement is full and has been waterproofed with a french drain and a sump pump. There is a side entrance and high ceilings. It needs some finishing off to make it a super space for a get-together and special events. There’s even a 2nd bathroom there! How rare to find a 2 car detached garage with electricity and automatic door in this type of home and area – but here it is! Great for car enthusiasts or other hobbyists of all types. Montgomery County recently changed zoning laws that may allow a garage to be converted to living accommodation for relatives or rental. The house roof is recent and in good shape with the solar panels at the rear. Don’t miss the adorable private garden/patio in the rear great for entertaining over 3 seasons and facing south for lots of warmth in the shoulder seasons. You can garden here where the local deer will have a hard time reaching it as it’s fenced all around! You are just 1 Mile from Takoma Metro – very walkable and close to the Takoma Cooperative and downtown restaurants and stores! This is a true treasure of a home – close by the historic district, schools, town hall (with many events in normal times), and once they resume the July 4th Firework displays! Don’t miss this opportunity! Walk Through Video here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1OnnCJEKj4jjrsYolEHB7gVdvUqTOfVfu/view?usp=sharingWebsite here: https://tour.truplace.com/property/76/88300/
