Massachusetts Avenue Southeast proceeds around Lincoln Park and past DEEP yards, fronting a fine mix of historic home styles. Nestled between “Spielberg” pocket park and the River Trail and Metro station, with a view to the great green ridge of Fort DuPont in the distance, you’ll find a prominent row of Wardman-style porch fronts. Savor this serene slice of Capitol Hill, featuring a short stroll to groceries, green spaces, Congressional, and new cafes and Hill East Village Square.
At number 1825, feast your eyes on fifty feet of glorious garden space as you approach the classic front porch. Flow through the front parlor across gleaming natural oak floors, past the powder room to the heart of the home: spacious central dining and radically reborn kitchen with copious cabinets, stone counters, and custom shelves in all the right places. Bright rear sun room lives up to its name, with stunning southern exposure and step out to elevated deck as outdoor den or relaxed al fresco cooking and dining space. (Note convenient off-street parking tucked below). Tailor your environment with efficient mini-split cooling systems for Summer, and warm radiant heat in the winter.
Alight to the sun splashed upper level with original transoms welcoming you into four good-sized rooms to configure to fit your family flow. A modern renovation of the skylit hall bath delights with barn door style entry, stone floors, river rock shower floor, and glass shower/bath combo room! In addition to large front bedroom with wall of closets, discover a home office with built-in shelves, a second hall bedroom, and big back BONUS: wall of windows in spacious and bright rear room.
Back down to earth, the SMART supplement: Comfortably host short or long-term guests, or activate turn-key short-term rental opportunity one block from Metro; separate rear entry, kitchenette, and full bath, with owner’s laundry at the base of the stairs.
This porch-front perch presents a powerful package for Capitol Hill living!
