Wonderful opportunity to renovate or expand this traditional 3BR, 2.5 bath Colonial with 1-car garage on a spectacular 18,000 sq. ft. lot in desirable Rock Creek Hills. Comfortable and livable as is, this “diamond in the rough” could be stunning with “polish” and updates, and offers a fabulous location; walking distance to Rock Creek Park, MARC train, Antique Row and the unique specialty shops and restaurants of downtown Kensington.
On the first floor, an entry foyer leads to the formal living and dining rooms. In the living room are a fireplace, picture window and door leading to a jalousie porch overlooking the deep, level backyard. The light-filled dining room opens to a galley kitchen with electric stove, pantry and side door to the driveway and garage. There is a half-bath off the kitchen and beautiful hardwoods throughout the first and second floors.
Upstairs are three bedrooms and two full baths including an owner’s bedroom with walk-in closet and ensuite bath. A second closet provides access to the stairs up to a full attic with knotty pine paneling, great storage space or expansion potential for an office or den.
The lower level offers more possibilities: a rec room with fireplace could be finished as a family room, play room or office. There is also storage/workshop space on this level, along with a door to the backyard.
Truly spectacular and rare opportunity to craft your own home on the parklike setting of this beautiful lot. Welcome home!
