Property Description

Offers due Tuesday. This is a gem in a beautiful neighborhood, a short walk, less than 10 or 13 minutes to the Blue, Silver, and Orange line metro stations. Grab a Jump Bike or your own to H St or the gorgeous Anacostia River Walk and Kennilworth Aquatic Gardens. Move to or move up in the greenest side of the city. This house is overflowing with love and light and carefully landscaped with edible treats. The family room boasts light from North, South, and East windows with a gas fireplace hookup behind the TV. Swim your way away from family during quarantine with all this space, or cuddle up together with your closest friends for parties, sleep overs, and movie nights. Host huge gatherings with the eat in kitchen, living space off the kitchen, and a showcase dining area. Enjoy the stone counters, stainless steel appliances, and gas range with storage for all the kitchen gadgets you've always wanted. You can fail at baking sourdough with more counter space than any of your friends! Enjoy the skylights up the stairway to support your urban jungle like we've created. Three guest rooms upstairs allows for housemates and family, and more office space and much needed time away from housemates. The en suite bedroom has it's own luxurious shower and vaulted ceilings allowing your dreams to reach new heights. The huge front loading laundry is on the same floor as the bedrooms to make that task even easier. To top it all off, there is bonus space in the basement. The basement is accessed from the side of the house and adds a ton of extra space for fun projects, interior growing if you choose, or just storage as we use it. It also helps keep the utilities out of the living space above. This last part is just an overview of the garden and edible landscape. This property is a dream come true for urban gardeners and homesteaders. And low maintenance if you don't care. You might miss the peonies that are starting to fade for the fall, but they are showy early in the spring and hydrangeas that bloom most of the summer. I also planted squashes along the front fence this year. In the inner yard there's one grassy side with a corner of bayscaping with native plants, and then planter boxes with mint, chives, and garlic chives. The main focus of the front yard is the kitchen herb garden. There, you'll find three types of basil, sage, oregano, rosemary bushes, two types of thyme, a few cayenne pepper plants, chamomile, saffron crocus, and an artichoke that should bloom next year. There is also a bay laurel plant that may need a cover for the winter as well or just harvest the leaves and plant something new next year. Hugging the house and the tree in front of the fence, are service berries. Known as June Berries in the midwest, Saskatoons in Canada, and also shadberries and sugarplums, this little known American native puts blueberries to shame with its deep rich flavor. You'll get prolific berries late May early June with little to no care because it is native. In the spring, you'll get showy white flowers from them, its in the rose family after all, and the fall brings about brilliant autumn hues. At the corner of the driveway, you'll see a fig tree with a sister fig in the back yard. The tree closest to the deck stairs in the back and at the bottom of the yard are a Early Laxton plum trees that I planted this year. Just to the left of the raised bed is a silverbell halesia that gives the most beautiful bell-shaped flowers in the spring and in the center of the backyard is a Southern Magnolia, that blooms during the summer. The young plant in the back corner of the yard is a gooseberry plant. Don't mind the fluffy silkie chickens, they are coming with us and one motivation in our move to a farm.
