SOLD! Over asking, and under contract in 4 days with multiple offers!

Renovated Mid-Century 3 Bedroom, 3.5 Bath Detached Home with Amazing Yard!

This mid-century gem right off of Rock Creek Park is what you’ve been waiting for!  Completely renovated in 2016 by John Formant and then further improved by the current owners, this home is turn-key perfection.  True to its era, it boasts an amazingly bright and open floor plan and solid oak hardwoods, with enough space to accommodate a full-sized dining table, comfortable living room and spacious kitchen with ample counter space.  On the same level, you will find a powder room and two full baths, plus three good-sized bedrooms with large windows and custom Hunter-Douglas shades throughout.  Custom Elfa-shelving can be found in the closets. The lower level is completely finished and makes for the perfect family room/lounge and game area.  A 3rd full bath, large laundry closet, extra storage and door to the back yard complete this level.

Outside, just out the back of the kitchen on the main level, there is the perfect back deck leading a few steps down to a gorgeous slate patio, fully fenced grassy flat yard and custom shed, built to complement the house.  The owners also gardened frequently, so there are raised garden beds in a protected, sunny spot!  The neighborhood is experiencing over $1 billion in development at the Walter Reed site across the way, with the new DC International and LAMB charter schools across the street.  A half block down is the entrance to Rock Creek Park, the new Ft. Stevens playground is just a block away, and the bike share and red-line Takoma metro are within 0.5-1 mile away.  What more could you want? Come, enjoy and rest easy!  You’re home!
