We are pleased to present this very special home in DC's popular Shepherd Park neighborhood. Enjoy the best of DC life but feel transported to the American Southwest in this charming stucco home with Spanish tile roof and accents of handmade Mexican tile throughout, purchased by the owners during a trip to Mexico. You are greeted cheerfully by the brightly colored, solid wood front door. Enter into the foyer where you can either head outside to relax on the front patio or continue into the living room. This home exudes warmth and character. The open floor plan flows logically from each living space making it an ideal layout for entertaining. It includes multiple bonus rooms to meet the needs of any buyer. The spacious, inviting living room boasts a wood-burning fireplace with a rustic wooden mantel as the focal point. A large front window lets in so much natural light. On either side of the living room are two additional rooms. Just off of the main entrance is an open space perfect for a den or movie room. On the opposite side of the living room is the enclosed sunroom with floor to ceiling built-in bookshelves. This space is ideal for an office, home library or playroom. Off of this is the dining room conveniently adjacent to the kitchen and including a large pantry for storing non-perishables and other kitchenware. Sliding doors off of the dining room lead directly outside to the flagstone patio. The recently updated kitchen includes stainless steel appliances like a five-burner stove with range hood, bottom freezer refrigerator and dishwasher. Brightly colored tiles run all the way up the wall to the skylight above the farmhouse sink. Ample cabinetry, a built-in spice rack, Silestone quartz countertops and open access to the surrounding rooms complete this beautiful and functional kitchen. Also on the main level are three bedrooms each with ample closet space. The primary bedroom includes an ensuite bathroom complete with red clay tiles, a Mexican tile sink, and a shower skylight. The primary bedroom also includes a wall of tall and spacious closets. At the end of the hall is the main full bath with more beautiful tilework and two additional bedrooms. Off of the hallway is an open landing and staircase that leads to the huge, unfinished basement. Accessible through a separate side entrance, the basement provides a great opportunity to build equity and add additional living space. Assessed at just over 1,200 square feet, the basement is currently used as a game room and hang out spot. The laundry area and utility equipment, including a new water heater, complete the space. Back outside, there are multiple areas for enjoying the yard. The flagstone patio off of the dining room is a private, lush space for outdoor seating and/or dining. In the corner of the yard is a covered gazebo also with a Spanish tile roof, string lights to set a festive mood and another patio. There is plenty of space for grills, fire pits, garden beds, hammocks and more. Outside of your oasis, there are plenty of conveniences nearby. Just steps from Rock Creek Park, you can explore this DC gem on a daily basis if you choose. Also nearby is the new development at the Parks at Walter Reed, a mixed-use development that includes public park space and retail like Whole Foods, scheduled to open this summer. Blocks away, the new Shepherd Park Community Center includes a fitness center, gymnasium and playground. Shepherd Park also runs along the DC border with bustling Silver Spring and Takoma Park. This home is just a walk, bike ride or short drive away from restaurants, theaters, shopping, night life, and so much more that these thriving neighboring communities have to offer.
