Gleaming hardwood floors and oversized picture windows grace this lovely 4br/4ba architectural gem on a coveted corner lot, just 0.3 miles to Congress Heights metro station! Owners have upgraded this home from top to bottom starting with the beautifully renovated, open concept, gourmet kitchen. Ample cabinetry and countertop space combine beauty and function and will please even the most discerning chef. The dining room and extended living room on the main floor provide plenty of room for entertaining or hosting large family gatherings. A full bedroom and bath complete the main level and make for the perfect office or guest space. Follow the intricate banister to the upper level, where you'll find two good-sized bedrooms with large windows and a full bath. At the end of the hall, the third and primary bedroom is a true oasis, with large picture windows, a walk in closet, and a to-die-for spa bathroom with luxurious walk in rain shower. Added bonus: your washer and dryer are located on this level, so no hiking down to the basement to do laundry. The basement has more delights with a very large rec room, studio space or... potential AirBnB! Prior owners set up the basement space as a very profitable AirBnb, and you can easily subsidize your mortgage payment by renting out the basement space. A separate basement walkout entrance allows access to the rec room or potential bedroom/living area, as well as the full bath, partial kitchenette, and second washer and dryer on this level. Access the lovely backyard through the basement walkout or from the kitchen door. Lots of room to garden among the mature trees, have bbqs, and invite friends over. There is even a one car garage for additional storage or workshop. Well-maintained systems add significant value, with the HVAC only one year old. Where else can you get this much so close to metro and the heart of the city? Congress Heights is already seeing the benefits of planned developments, including significant development near the metro station and the St Elizabeth's East campus, planned over the next few years. Welcome home to this vibrant part of DC!
