Description

Just six blocks to King Street's dining and shopping district sits this stately four-level brick home. The 3 bedroom, 3 1/2 bath townhouse provides a seamless marriage of modern amenities nestled amongst the charm of Old Town's historic district. This sunny home boasts over 2,000 square feet of finished space, a one-car attached garage, one reserved covered garage parking space, hardwood floors, crown molding, plantation shutters, and plentiful updates. The ground level features a tiled foyer with coat closet, a discretely located first floor powder room, a bright family room with built-in shelves and wet bar, and a wood burning fireplace. Two sets of French doors offer a view of--and easy access to--the private fenced back courtyard, perfect for al fresco dining, grilling, relaxing, and entertaining. The second floor of the home features a spacious kitchen, complete with stainless steel appliances including a wine refrigerator and Electrolux induction cooktop with a double oven, a handcrafted subway tile backsplash, soapstone counters, and a large center island, which opens onto the spacious dining room featuring large scale dual pendant-style lighting. Also on this level is the home's living room, complete with a second wood-burning fireplace, built in display and storage space, and two French doors with Juliet balconies that let in both sunlight and cool fall breezes. The third floor is home to a large master suite and recently renovated en-suite bathroom with Toto and Kohler fixtures, a walk-in shower with a rain showerhead, a heated marble basket-weave tile floor, and a marble-topped vanity. A spacious second bedroom with a large walk-in closet is also located on this level, as is the second updated full bathroom with Rohl fixtures, a soaking tub/shower combination, Carrera marble vanity and heated marble mosaic floor tile. A stacked washer and dryer and linen closet are also conveniently located on this level. The home's top level features a large third bedroom with hardwood floors, a reading nook, the home's third full bathroom with shower and tub combination, and ample storage space. Monthly condo dues for the Washington Square community include exterior maintenance (including the roof), water, trash and snow removal, common area landscaping, common area maintenance including the parking garage and elevator, and more. The home's central Old Town location is a commuter's dream: one mile to King Street Metro, and easy access to I-95/495, Route 1, the GW Parkway, and the Mount Vernon bike trail. Whole Foods, Harris Teeter, Trader Joes, Balducci's, Starbucks, and farmers' markets are also located conveniently nearby.

King Street Metro

The King Street Metro community is located at the bottom of Shooter’s Hill, between the Braddock Road Metro station and the Eisenhower Avenue Station. Until 1991, when the Blue Line was expanded to Van Dorn Street, only the Yellow Line served the community. Today, the King Street Metro community is accessible on both the Blue and Yellow Lines.

Quality of Life:

The King Street Metro community is predominantly composed of commercial office buildings and several mid to high-rise apartment complexes. There are older townhouses along Harvard and Peyton Streets, and a mix of old and new townhouses on West and Prince Streets.

King Street Metro means convenience. Without saying too much, residents in the King Street Metro community have unprecedented access to metro rail. King Street is seconds away, as well as its numerous restaurants. Take a walk down towards the heart of Old Town for a visit to The Old Town Theatre or The Lyceum. Stop by the Butcher’s Block for fresh meats and The Fromagerie for cheese. Whole Foods is right around the corner.

Getting Around:

Forgive us for repeating ourselves. From the King Street Metro community one can easily find their way to the King Street Metro station. The streets of Old Town are easily navigable by car. I-495 is less than five minutes away. Head north on the G.W. Parkway for a ten-minute drive to D.C. Two Metro stops to Reagan National Airport.

Airports:

Ronald Reagan National Airport:  < 6 miles.
Washington-Dulles International Airport:  < 30 miles.
Baltimore-Washington International Airport:  < 45 miles.
