Every house has a story but this house's story is special. This 4 bedroom, 2 full bath, 2 (1/2) bath colonial was purchased by the current owner's family in the 1950's. It has been lived in, loved, provided shelter, and offered many good times. It has been maintained in regards to systems such as updated windows, central heat and air and the addition of a powder room on the main floor. The rooms flow beautifully and this house offers such versatility. The living room is oversized with a beautiful fireplace. There is a wonderful screen porch and a recently added powder room on the main floor. The second floor has 3 bedrooms including an ensuite primary bathroom. The third level offers a massive 4th bedroom or den or playroom or whatever you can imagine. The lower level offers a basement with a den waiting on your personal touches and a large workshop/laundry room with a second half bath.
Brookland is "HOT HOT HOT". You have easy access to the Brookland metro just a short walk away, lots of public green space and easy access to shopping and transportation arteries. This is a home that feels "like a home" from the moment you walk in".
The current owner provided this narrative of her family's home:
"Mom was a great cook, and our dad loved gatherings. So, it was only natural
with six children, that our house was the neighborhood hangout and sometimes
place of refuge for children, neighbors and relatives who enjoyed the food, play
and love shown to them continuously. The weekends often included marathon
board games in the cold months, and team sporting events when it was warm.
The basement is big enough to roller skate, and ride tricycles around. The house
was always filled with so much love and joy that even today just walking through
it, you can still feel the happiness that resonates throughout."
This house is priced to encourage the next generation owner's of 3800 18th St NE to build upon this legacy. This house is rock solid and ready for the personalized updates that a new owner might want.
The home was recently painted (excluding the gorgeous woodwork) and lends itself to large gatherings and great times both inside and in the wonderful back yard. The side porch can be left as is or turned into a 4 season room. The options are endless. An oversized one car garage, 4 generously sized bedrooms and a massive yard make this home unique and priced below market. Showings to begin on September 7, 2021
