SEPTEMBER 25TH OPEN HOUSE IS CANCELLED. This home is offered âas isâ. This Home is move-in ready and all systems work (except the fireplace has never been used) giving the Buyer time to decide on the approach to the renovation of the property. The property is situated on a 4700 ft² lot with a large backyard that contains a flower garden. French doors open from the living room to the sunroom. The living room also contains a fireplace. It has three bedrooms, two full and two half baths. The basement is finished. All front and side windows were replaced three years ago. It has a fully equipped kitchen, W/D and central air. Let us tell you some of the benefits of owning in Brightwood: Live on a block that has mature trees, 4 well-kept lighted Tennis courts only 6 houses away and a community center (Ft. Stevens) in the next block. Walter Reed: If you do not want to expose yourself to DC traffic, you can bike ride inside of the Walter Reed (WR) site (20 square blocks) which is only steps from this home and move up to rides and hiking in Rock Creek Park which is only three blocks away! WR also sports a dog park and supports regular live entertainment. In 2023, Whole Food and Starbucks will open a store in WR and already it sponsors a farmers market each weekend during the growing season. A CVS and Safeway are also within walking distance. Downtown Silver Spring is only 1.6 miles away with restaurants, live entertainment, and the Regal Theatre Multiplex. Downtown Takoma Park is only 1.2 miles away. It sports good restaurants, a Saturday Morning Farmers Market, and a pleasant end to a morning walk. It also has an Ace Hardware Store with a knowledgeable staff. History: There have only been three owner occupants in this property since 1948 when it was built. The original hardware floors were covered by carpets for the last 25 years and were uncovered for viewing for this sale. Hence, the floors remain in excellent condition. The prior owner for 40 years was the Williams family who came to Washington DC from Texas with Lyndon B. Johnson. A few vice-presidential mementos were left in the house when Ms. Williams passed away in 2004. Owner would be glad to leave them for Buyer. For the past 17 years the current owner has used the home as office/home. Owner has available the existing floor plan of 2000 ft² drawn by architect (two full and two half baths and three bedrooms that includes the basement). Public Transportation: This home has all the conveniences of this very special area situated just 1.0 mile from the Tacoma Red Line Metro station with a metro bus stop a few feet away (No. 52, 14th Street). The Georgia Ave and 16th St lines are 3 blocks away. Enjoy the warm sense of Brightwood community with ready access to shopping, restaurants, and entertainment in both Takoma Park and wonderful, vibrant downtown Silver Spring. Owner has an architectâs rendering of the home expanded to four bedrooms to include a first-floor master bedroom suite, with 4 ½ bathrooms, a second floor deck, an in-law suite and a two car attached garage if any buyer is interested. Why pay $1 million and a condo fee in excess of $1000 per month for a 1200 square-foot condominium (you will also need $40,000 for a parking space) when you can have a 2000 ft² brick home in an upscale DC neighborhood and expand/renovate it to your own specifications?
