A tastefully renovated historic row home situated on a treeline street walking distance to all that H Street, Union Market, and NoMa have to offer! Located near all of the action but not on the busy Florida Avenue or too far into Trinidad where walkability is strained. This home has been meticulously cared for and upgraded! Beautiful tile work greets you at the foyer. The kitchen has been opened up and completely redone – a perfect blend of function and style. Make your way up the original staircase to the top level which is covered in gorgeous heart pine flooring. Here you will find 3 bedrooms and a fun and modern bathroom. The lower level standouts with a rear and FRONT entrance to this space. It can be your extra living room, your 4th bedroom, or an income-generating rental suite (hello Airbnb – thank you for paying my mortgage). The remodeled second bathroom has a cool concrete floor. Separate laundry room is spacious and has a new washer/dryer. Other valuable upgrades from the last 2 years include: a new electrical panel/wiring, central AC, new gutters, a new fence in the backyard, plus more (detailed list available upon request).
You’re hard-pressed to find a block in this fast-changing Northeast DC neighborhood–where the median price rose by about 7 percent last year–without a house (or three) undergoing a gut-renovation. You’ll spot boarded-up windows next door to for-sale signs in fresh sod. Though much of the city remembers Trinidad for the military-style checkpoints set up by police during the violent summer of 2008, it has moved on–dramatically. Trinidad is now primely positioned: a five-minute walk from the restaurant and bar scene along Northeast’s H Street corridor, a ten-minute stroll from Union Market, and less than a 20-minute walk from NoMa (and the Red Line). While those help its real-estate values, the neighborhood itself has a lot going for it on its own. You’ll find 1920s rowhouses on narrow streets and a diverse community of longtime African-American residents, young families and couples of varying backgrounds (gay, straight, black, white), and students from Gallaudet University, which sits along Trinidad’s western edge. The Whole Foods opening a half mile away is a draw for many house hunters, as is the prospect of owning a four-bedroom, fully renovated rowhouse for $650,000 (or a fixer for less than $450,000). But they’re also attracted to something less tangible: the feeling that Trinidad–unlike, say, the NoMa apartments they might be leaving behind–is a place you move to when you’re ready to call the District home.
