Charming Montgomery County Classic Colonial home located in Takoma Park! This home has been renovated from top-to-bottom. Located on a Service Road off of Carroll Ave in walking distance to Long Branch trail and multiple Montgomery county bus stops. Within the past six years, current owners have taken this 1947 Colonial to a charming renovated home with 21st century luxuries.
The renovations are easily recognizable throughout the home. Kitchen and dining area have had a full renovation, including wall removal and addition of a peninsula for an open concept area that easily flows from cooking to enjoying a meal with family or friends. The kitchen and dining area include white wood cabinets specifically designed to maximize storage opportunities, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, a custom downdraft oven vent that lowers to not restrict views between kitchen and dining area when not in use, added hardwood flooring, and updated lighting with recessed, undercounter, and pendant lighting over peninsula. Upstairs bathroom has also had a beautiful renovation, including a reglazed bathtub, new tile in the bathtub area and floor, pedestal sink, low flush toilet and updated lighting and vent. The recent basement renovation adds even more square feet of generous living space, including new double pain windows, drywall, and floor tiled throughout. This finished space includes the addition of a full bathroom with spacious tiled walk in shower, a lovely living area great for kids’ playroom or home office, and the addition of a laundry/pantry room with stone countertop, deep stainless steel sink, stained wood cabinets, second refrigerator, and washer/dryer. The upgrades also extend to enhancing the outdoor living areas of the home as well, including: a new shed, new front door awning, rebuilt backstairs/deck, rebuilt screened in side porch in entirety and added Trex decking and a new ceiling fan for those hot summer nights. Additional new gates and a wood fence on either side of the house open to an expansive, private backyard space, which includes recent landscaping and fully mulched garden beds.
These and many other renovations were accompanied by major behind the scenes upgrades to bring the house up to code, including: updating chimney lining, plumbing lines, gas lines, and electrical. These updates include hardwire linked fire alarms throughout, new gas furnace, a professional duct cleaning, a heavy up on electrical panel to allow for the renovations discussed above and the possibility for future additions. Throughout the house, owners have also made minor updates as well for safety, comfort, and aesthetics, including: rebuilding basement stairs to code, new front, back, and basement doors with addition of screen doors to each, ceiling fans added to all bedrooms, freshly refinished floors with newly painted baseboards, new faux wood blinds throughout the first floor, and updates to all socket/light switches, door hardware, and vent covers.
Great and easy access to public transportation, I-495, and D.C. Conveniently located less than a block from a Montgomery County bus stop to easily access downtown Silver Spring and/or Red Line at Takoma Park metro station, or a 10-minute easy walk to the Langley Park Bus Depot for easy access to Red/Green/Yellow Lines at Ft. Totten metro station. Move in ready, charming colonial is waiting for you!
