Built in 1906, this exquisite three-bedroom home in the desirable Kent neighborhood is almost too good to be true. Flooded in natural light, this home is located just blocks away from unique, locally-owned shops; award-winning restaurants (Blacksalt and Et Voila); the C&O Canal and Trail; and within a short walk to the highly-regarded Key Elementary School and Palisades playground, tennis courts and soccer fields. A gourmet, chef’s kitchen with marble counter-tops and stainless steel appliances, opens to the fully-fenced, private backyard, boasting a spacious terrace with adjoining play area: ideal for outdoor entertaining! The open floorplan features a generously-sized dining room, and two sun-drenched living areas with gracious arched entries; one is warmed by a decorative stone fireplace, and the other is bright and airy with huge windows. Elegant and original heart of pine floors, high ceilings, custom lighting, and stunning windows provide a historic yet contemporary feel. The owner’s suite has a spacious custom closet, large renovated bath with subway tile and glass shower enclosure, and a private balcony overlooking the backyard. There are two additional large bedrooms and a second renovated full bath on the upper level. The basement has an entertainment area, spacious laundry room and storage area that could also be used as a stone wine cellar. The owner has made many improvements including new AC and heat pump, plantation shutters, and new washer and dryer. Kent is one of the city’s most sought-after neighborhoods, where property values are high and residents enjoy easy access to downtown, Reagan National Airport, and convenient commuter routes to Maryland and Virginia. The Annual Palisades Fourth of July Parade is a treasured neighborhood tradition dating back 50+ years.
