Welcome to this turreted Victorian home on a quiet street in the heart of Bloomingdale/Ledriot Park. Built in 1909, this rare end unit is one of only a few like it in Bloomingdale and is the ideal blend of architectural character matched with tasteful updates for today’s sophisticated, urban homebuyer. The stately, mid-block, end-unit location of this fine home affords it unparalleled exposures from three directions, drenching it in natural sunlight throughout the day. Additionally, the home is larger than most: an estimated 2,318 square feet of living space. Enter through a welcoming tile vestibule and discover details like the original hardwood floors, soaring – nearly 11′ ceilings, spectacular center staircase with dramatic skylight, and multiple reclaimed chandeliers. You will be eager to explore this treasure of a home. The spacious front parlor boasts a decorative fireplace mantel and custom plantation shutters. Generous pocket doors on the first floor maintain distinct rooms while allowing the free flow of an open floor plan. A large formal dining room leads to the spectacular gourmet kitchen designed for a chef. Quartz and butcher block countertops, multiple workstations and sinks, high-end stainless-steel appliances, a gorgeous built-in cherry hutch, custom lighting, cabinetry, and breakfast bar make this a kitchen where you’ll want to spend all of your time. There is even a spacious pantry. The beautiful kitchen opens to a private covered balcony. Simply, this home was designed for entertaining. The upper level reveals three generously sized bedrooms, including the primary that enjoys the extra space and character afforded by the home’s turret. Hardwood floors continue upstairs, and sunlight streams through the many windows, including the transom windows above each bedroom door. The lower level with front and rear entrances, two bedrooms, a generous living area, and full bath provides additional living space, or can be converted to a separate, income-producing apartment. A lovely front garden completes this stunning, picture perfect home in one of the city’s most sought-after areas. The charming neighborhood offers choice dining just around the corner and easy access to grocery, gyms, dog parks, coffee shops and weekly farmers market. The secret neighborhood gem, Crispus Attucks Park, is just across the street and provides fabulous green space for organized events like Yoga in the Park and Films in the Park. The Park also encourages hanging out and visiting with neighbors. This home sits close to the US Capitol, Green/Yellow Metro, downtown DC, and commuter routes outside the city, too. This home is an opportunity to live in historic comfort, in a lively neighborhood, with easy access to a vibrant city.
