LOVE TAKOMA PARK? LIVE TAKOMA PARK! Beautiful curb appeal and a welcoming covered entry will have you at hello; then the charm of this home will inspire you to stay. What you will notice first in this home is the light on both the Main and Upper Levels. On the Upper Level, a 2007 addition consistent with the home’s architectural character, includes four bedrooms – each with light from 2 directions; additional windows in the stairwell and loft area add even more light creating a bright and inviting space for sleep, work or guests. Built-in bookcases make the rooms in the addition work equally well as bedrooms or home offices. The original hall bathroom and an open loft area perfect for a TV, reading or homework space complete the Upper Level. On the Main Level, the side staircase opens the space providing both a generous living room featuring an original wood-burning fireplace with handsome built-in bookcases to the right side, and a spacious dining room with lovely ivy-covered wallpaper that brings the outside in while inviting you to step into the glorious screened-in porch. Except for the coldest winter mornings, the screened-in porch is where you will want to start and end your days … morning coffee, al fresco dining, or just kicking back and enjoying the end of another day. An adjacent patio is perfect for grilling, and the fully fenced idyllic backyard is perfect for pets, parties, gardening, and games. An enclosed original side porch off the living room provides an additional fabulously flexible bonus room that can function according to your needs. The large, open basement with a second full bath and laundry room abounds with storage options and can also be finished to create additional living space. Additional features include hardwood floors on the main and upper levels, and a “just-installed” new roof! This quintessential Takoma Park Colonial sits on a convenient and quiet street nestled between Long Branch and Sligo Creeks. Mere blocks away from the Takoma Co-Op, Takoma Park public schools and Old Town Takoma’s charming restaurants, eclectic shops and farmers markets, the home is perched just up the hill from Sligo Creek and the scenic Sligo Creek Trail. At the same time, this residential haven is a short drive to DC, downtown Silver Spring or I-495. If you love Takoma Park, you won’t want to miss this gem!
