A house that will exceed your expectations! A true gem, and a rare opportunity for Takoma Park. Refined, recently-remodeled (2015) Craftsman, retaining original features with the addition of many wonderful contemporary updates. Boasting a clean, minimal aesthetic with high ceilings and original trim, this home also includes many high-tech green upgrades such as solar panels, all-new Andersen windows and a first class, virtually silent, heating/cooling system, including radiators. A pleasing entry with built-ins leads to the light-filled open-plan living and family spaces and on to the striking contemporary kitchen with island, vaulted ceiling and 8~ glass doors looking out to the full expanse of the stone patio and architecturally landscaped yard. Upstairs, you'll find 3 spacious bedrooms to include the airy master with ensuite plus two doubles, a further full bathroom and hidden upstairs laundry. The lower level contains a capacious au pair / in-law suite with separate entrance and finished storage or rec area. All of this, plus a carriage house with vaulted upstairs living area filled with natural light suitable for office space or extra guests, heated and cooled with brand new efficient heat pump. Minutes to Sligo Creek hiker-biker trails and playgrounds, Takoma Junction shops, restaurants and food co-op and under a mile to metro! Open both Saturday and Sunday, 2-4PM!
