609 van Buren STREET NW, Washington, DC 20012
Totally renovated 1930 Bungalow is a homeowner dream! Situated on a quiet street in Takoma DC, this home has been updated top to bottom - starting with cement board siding, large front porch, new hardscaping and landscaping outside. Upon entry, you will love the open concept first floor space - featuring wide-plank white oak flooring, recessed lighting, and a beautiful custom kitchen with stainless steel appliances. There is plenty of storage in the spacious coat closet off the stairway and the powder room is tucked into the hallway to the basement instead of right in the middle of the main living space. Out the sliding glass doors to a gorgeous covered veranda, you'll love the fully fenced back yard, which has also been hardscaped and landscaped to include off street parking. The home is pre-wired for an electric car hook up! Upstairs, all three bedrooms are generously sized and each boasts and ensuite bathroom. The laundry is also upstairs - making putting clothes back in the spacious bedroom closets a breeze. The primary bedroom suite features two walk-in closets, large windows overlooking the back yard and a great bathroom suite with a large shower stall. On the basement level, large egress windows and an exterior entrance allows light to flood the space, making it feel like above-ground space. The basement is currently situated as an in-law suite, with a bedroom, full bathroom, and kitchenette with beverage fridge, sink, and microwave, as well as a large open rec room space. However, there is room and a floor-plan design for a 5th bedroom, and hook-ups for an additional washer/dryer, as well as space for a fullsize fridge, should you want to convert this to an accessory dwelling unit.
This home was lovingly renovated in 2020-2021 for the owners, not as a flip. They took extra care to reframe the structure and roof, add drain tile & sump pumps, wire the first floor for in-ceiling speaker system, pre-wire for an electric car, custom fit window coverings, and more! This is a must see space.
The neighborhood is as delightful as the home renovation, situated just 8 blocks from the Takoma Park Metro Station, walking distance to Safeway, the Whole Foods (coming soon at Walter Reed), the Takoma Recreation Center, including an indoor swimming pool, outdoor tennis courts, basketball courts, dog park, baseball field, soccer fields, picnic grounds, and two playgrounds with a splash park. Walking distance to Lost Sock Coffee, Takoma Station Bar, Takoma Bev Co, Kin Da, Roscoes, Cielo Roja, Busboys & Poets, and everything downtown Takoma has to offer!
