OFFER DEADLINE Tuesday the 19th at 12p. This true 4-bedroom-upstairs Takoma Park stunner is available for the first time in over 20 years. Located on a bucolic, quiet block in the heart of the desirable “Between the Creeks” neighborhood, this home is steps to Sligo Creek Park and accessible to all of the great shops, restaurants and transportation Takoma Park is known for.
Upon entering the home, the living room fireplace mantel sets the tone and warmly invites you in. Your eye is immediately drawn to the rear of the home where double doors lead out to the back patio and flat yard. This rare flow of space is not just aesthetically pleasing, it is also functional. The space works incredibly well for modern living and can at once accommodate a private cup of coffee by the fire or a larger get-together seamlessly spilling out into the rear yard.
You find a lovely mix of charming character and modern amenities throughout. The timeless appeal of the hardwood floors, fireplace, and dining room built-ins are complemented by the modern flow of space, open kitchen layout, and updated light fixtures.
Nowhere are the modern amenities more on display than upstairs where the primary suite offers a private oasis. A gigantic window and vaulted ceiling give this room treehouse vibes. There are two large closets in the space - one of them walk-in with custom shelving. The ensuite primary bath is spacious with an extra wide vanity, great light, and large custom-tiled shower.
Three additional bedrooms upstairs are each unique in their own ways, featuring original hardwood floors and trim as well as custom shelving. The hall full bathroom boasts funky original tiles and a bathtub. In the basement a fifth bedroom suite has been added with an egress window and full bathroom. The space is warm and inviting. On the other half of the basement the utility room features the washer, dryer, and other utilities along with ample additional space for storage.
Smack in the heart of the “Between the Creeks” part of Takoma Park, the neighborhood is perfectly situated between Sligo Creek to the south (and the 20+miles of trails alongside it) and Long Branch Creek to the north. As a result, within two blocks of this home, you can walk through woods that make you feel like you are actually hundreds of miles away. Hike, run, bike, walk, play - it’s all right here.
A twenty minute walk away (or quick bike, bus or car ride) is the town of Takoma Park. Nearby Takoma Crossing shopping area boasts many great small businesses that make this area tick. The Takoma Park Silver Spring Co-op is a great small grocery and SOKO butcher shop is the real deal. Other local favorites include Spring Mill Bread, DC Seoul Food, The Still Point Spa, and MAD Fitness. Award winning Cielo Rojo is expanding their local footprint and will be putting in a fine dining restaurant in the area as well.
The Takoma Park Metro is on the red line, an artery right into Washington DC. Driving to the heart of the city takes about 30 minutes. North of this property is the future location of the Purple Line, connecting the area to Bethesda and College Park and everything in between. Easy access to 495 on either University Blvd. or New Hampshire Blvd. means BWI airport is only about 40 minutes away.
