OPEN HOUSE SUNDAY 10/25/20 from 1-3PM - We are proud to present this exceptional 3-bedroom 2.5-bath, Victorian brick bay-front home. This historic row house was built by notable local developer James Naylor in 1878 and features ornamental brick work and wrought iron steps that contribute to its remarkable curb appeal. The house includes two large living areas both with period mantels and wood burning fireplaces, and a spacious dining area with custom built-in cabinetry and a third fireplace. The gourmet kitchen includes elegant solid-wood cabinetry, Geilo granite counters, a coordinated tile backsplash, task lighting and high-end appliances. The double wall oven and the gas cooktop are Dacor, the built-in refrigerator is Northland and the dishwasher is Miele. The top two floors include three spacious bedrooms, two full bathrooms and an additional seating area which could be used as a fourth bedroom. Distinctive amenities include reclaimed heart of pine wood floors, a covered balcony that leads to a secure terraced garden, two wet bars for entertaining, a whole house sound system and former coal storage space underneath the front walkway. A rental parking space is available behind the house. The home earns a near perfect 97 walk-score and is considered a walker's paradise. Enjoy multiple nearby grocery options, a Vida gym and numerous restaurants steps away in surrounding Shaw and Mount Vernon Triangle neighborhoods. The Metro station at Gallery Place is a 10-minute walk from the home.
