For the first time in over 20 years, this 3-level stately Victorian home in Historic Bloomingdale is on the market and available for a new loving owner. A rare 3-bedroom well-maintained charmer with classic architectural features and abound in space, this elegant structure is a unique neighborhood find. As you enter the home you are welcomed by a Moroccan tiled foyer leading to the first level main living area, which includes a sun-filled living room with exposed brick, soaring bay windows, and a fireplace framed by ornate glass beading and ceramic tile with built in bookcase accents. Just across the hall is a formal dining room featuring a grand pocket door and hand-refinished mantle, both original to the home. Continuing beyond the dining room, you'll pass a towering, beautiful panel door leading to the rear of the home where you'll find a powder room, and tastefully upgraded kitchen. Just off the kitchen is a cozy bonus area of spacious flex-space also featuring an accent wall of exposed brick, which can serve as the perfect work-from-home office or a separate living area. The 2nd floor of this beautiful home offers a convenient laundry room. In addition, you'll find the owner's suite, which is anchored by a fireplace with textured tile surround, and also features bay windows, and en-suite bath with whirlpool jetted tub. Also on the second floor is 2 guest bedrooms and a full guest bath. Both the first and second floors are accented by lovely soft pine hardwood floors that are original to the home. Upon ascending to the 3rd level you'll find a generous and airy rooftop deck with pergola that is perfect for entertaining family and friends. The finished English basement includes two egress doors, living area, full bath and kitchenette. Located on the coveted and charming U St NW, this 96 Walk Score home is a short walking distance to restaurants, wine bars, and grocery as well as only a 4-minute walk to the local dog park. Local favorite outposts include Big Bear Cafe, Boundary Stone, The Red Hen, Domestique and Tyber Creek. To quench your green space cravings the serene Crispus Attucks Park is a quick 2-minute walk.
