$1,179,000 5925 16th St NW, Washington, DC 20011
Welcome to this handsome center hall colonial in the desirable 16th Street Heights neighborhood, just a stone's throw to Rock Creek Park and all the Nation's Capital has to offer! This home has been lovingly updated and maintained ... and it shows! Recent upgrades include quartz counters, tile floor, new refrigerator and dishwasher; fresh neutral paint and gleaming hardwood oak wood floors; window treatments and lovely new lighting throughout. The first floor features a welcoming entry foyer, dining room, living room with wood-burning fireplace, kitchen and private home office with powder room (could also be used as a main level bedroom). A sweet three-season room off the living room provides a lovely space for enjoying meals or gathering around the table for game night. The second level finds a primary bedroom with en suite bath and two closets, plus two additional bedrooms and a full bath. All bedrooms are spacious and offer plenty of closet space (rare for a home of this era!). Built-in drawers and cabinetry in the hallway provide plenty of storage for linens. The attic is finished and provides another gathering spot, plus room for a fourth bedroom (with closet). This space is conditioned, but an additional air conditioning unit is included for those super hot summer days! The lower level is finished, offering a recreation room with fireplace, laundry room, exercise room, full bath and plenty of storage. This space has eight foot ceilings and windows. The backyard recently underwent a complete overhaul, turning a simple flat yard into a private retreat with deck, patio, fire pit area and paver walkway winding through the lush plantings and mature shade trees ... A fabulous space for entertaining or enjoying a fall evening around the fire. The backyard is fully fenced. A detached garage is sited off an alley at the rear of the property, providing parking for two cars. The garage interior was recently finished to accommodate an outdoor recreation area or storage. Open Friday 10/6 (4:30 to 6p) and Sunday 10/8 (1 to 3p).
