Real Estate Fresh Finds: August 12

Real Estate Fresh Finds is a weekly selection of newly-listed properties in the District, brought to you by Real Living At Home.

Featured Property of the Week: 904 11th Street NE

“Find your heart and soul in the H Street Corridor, in this recently renovated 3 level Victorian row home. Built in the 1908, this home combines the best of old world charm and modern functionality. Upon entering the main level of the home, you are greeted with soaring 9.5′ ceilings with crown molding, a bay window with plantation shutters and gorgeous hardwood floors. The generous kitchen divides the living room and the dining room with custom cabinetry that extends to the ceiling offering plenty of storage. The double French doors lead to the piece de resistance of the home, an outdoor oasis that was custom designed by an award-winning landscape architect.

There is also a working stone fire pit and plenty of space to grill out, entertain or just enjoy morning coffee and truly feel like you are tucked away and secluded in your own world. The master bedroom has vaulted cathedral ceilings and a huge walk-in closet with built in shelves (along with a second separate closet). And finally the fully finished lower level has plenty of space perfect for family movie or game night or a great in-law suite with full size refrigerator and sink. The whole home has surround sound from SONOS so you never miss a podcast and when entertaining, your guest will have music in every room. The owners have lovingly cared for this home for 5 wonderful years and are looking for the next homeowner to love and care for it as they did.”
