Prime Location in the Heart of the City! You can't get a better location than this in the City of Takoma Park Historic District. Just around the corner from the Sunday Farmer's Market, Takoma BevCo for your coffee, and a choice of several restaurants like Busboys & Poets, Kin-Da, Roscoe's, and Cielo Rojo. Just a short 4-block stroll to Takoma Metro Station, and with a bus stop nearby, it's easy to be without a car or give up one of them with the 89 "Very Walkable" score along with the "Good Transit" and "Very Bikeable" scores! This 1930 brick Craftsman semi-detached beauty sports 5 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms over 4 levels, with an in-law suite and approximately 2694 square feet of finished space. Joined at the hip to 6845 Eastern, which is also for sale, there's the chance to have two side-by-side properties for family and friends to be close to one another. Or buy one for an investment (6845 recently rented for $4600 per month by the seller) and possible condo conversion one day. Tall ceilings, bright rooms, hardwood, and a living room fireplace invite you into an updated home with fresh paint, new appliances, and refinished floors. The flow is great from front to back and the table space kitchen leads to an adorable covered rear deck overlooking a magical garden with something to look at in every season. Lots of perennials that will come back year after year. There's a big patio for 3-season-entertaining. In this deep yard, sitting under the stars, it's easy to forget you are right at the District of Columbia border. The charming brick exterior has balconies on the 2nd and 3rd levels of the front and, combined with the inviting rear deck and garden patio, there's lots of outdoor living space overlooking mature trees and fruit trees. There is a 2nd kitchen that makes a great in-law suite in the basement, and off-street parking. Central heating (a recent high-efficiency electric boiler is installed) and air conditioning are featured. Easy access to the excellent elementary and middle schools here, and the Municipal Center, library, and Takoma Food Coop are within walking distance. The stunning hiking and bicycling trails of Rock Creek and Sligo Creek Parks are also nearby. This is a great opportunity to be in the sought-after Historic District of Takoma Park, steps from the activities of Takoma, DC. A short trip from all that the big city has to offer with the amenities of this popular little city. An urban oasis!
