726 HAMILTON STREET NE, WASHINGTON, DC 20011
***Offers requested by 5pm Tuesday. 5/17/2022 - *** 'Freedom House' awaits its next steward. Only a few owners have been fortunate to call this lovingly maintained all brick, semi-detached rowhome their own. The physical structure gives you dozens of great features but the community that surrounds the house, the care and love that generations have invested into making this one of the friendliest communities in DC, and the energy that this home exudes, are all the things you have to see and feel in person to fully understand and appreciate.
It is our pleasure to sell this home for a second time! Situated at the top of the hill, 726 Hamilton St NE enjoys one of the best locations in the neighborhood for appreciating the view of what makes living in Riggs Park so special, The Fort Circle Parks. Hundreds of acres of federally protected parkland, and the little-known secret that this is the best, amateur 4th of July firework show in the region!
The original oak hardwood floors from 1954 have been maintained and refinished on the main level and upper level, but nearly everything else in the home has been thoughtfully renovated over the last five years. Major renovations include a gourmet kitchen with the highest quality professional-grade stove/range that has ever sold in the neighborhood. Complimenting this unique centerpiece and anchor to the kitchen is an edgy and thoughtfully artistic aesthetic combination of custom cabinetry, floating shelving, floor-to-ceiling custom mosaic tiles, an under-mounted, hammered brass sink, and matching brass fixtures all brought together by the beautiful and high-end marble countertops.
Form and function come together in the perfect package for creating memories over meals with family and friends. There are many more features that complete the main level including the recessed lights, modern dining room light fixtures, and double exposure from oversized windows that bathe the living space in warmth and diffused natural light. The powder room has been completely renovated with stylish and custom ceramic tiles, new vanity, and a light fixture. The upper level features a primary bedroom with a large closet, southern exposure, and those beautiful, original hardwood floors. The first thing you will notice about the upper-level full bathroom is the same mosaic tile work and the unique and custom, oversized shower with bench and brass fixtures. The distressed glass subway tile accent wall perfectly compliments the vessel sink, oversized storage cabinet, mirror, and modern light fixture.
The lower level of this home features a walkout door with a separate rear entrance, heated ceramic tile floors, a full-sized window, and a ¼ bath that can be easily upgraded to another full bathroom along with outstanding ceiling height, recessed lights, and an opportunity for further renovations.
The exterior of the property is what makes this model home in Riggs Park special. The long and rectangular lot gives you plenty of space for outdoor entertaining, gardening, and just relaxing on your own land. There is a generous front porch for enjoying morning coffee, overlooking the front yard that is framed by a retaining wall, and prepped for growing whatever your green thumb could desire! There is a walking path along the side of the home that invites guests to the backyard, and a spacious flagstone patio right off of the rear, main-level door. In addition to the patio, there are planter boxes for growing produce at home, a custom rock, a privacy wall, and off-street parking for two cars. Fort Totten Metro is .0.6 Miles away, Hellbender Brewing, culture coffee and multiple grocery stores are all within blocks, and the second phase of "Art Place at Fort Totten" Is under construction just down the hill. Welcome home!
