Is your priority space? Or is it location? Maybe it’s green space, modern amenities, and a dedicated home office? Check, check, check and check! In your own heavenly slice of The Hampshires, at 204 Beacon Place NE, you’ll be wowed on this side of the District line, but with Maryland crab cakes just within reach. First, this ideal location, in a beautiful residential pocket of Northeast D.C. puts you about a mile north of the Fort Totten Metro Station, and less than two miles south of the Takoma station. With all the green space, to include its own Great Lawn for Hampshire gatherings or to just relax. This lovely Colonial-style home is nestled by crape myrtle trees on either side nurtured by the in-ground irrigation system you might easily forget that you’re in the city. But with nearly 3,000 square feet of living space to call home, you might not even see much of the neighborhood! This Hampshires home also boasts a private outdoor patio and deck, as well as a generous balcony behind elegant French doors in the spacious, cathedral-ceilinged owner’s suite with custom his and hers closets and a cozy ensuite bathroom! If this all sounds like music to your ears, that might just actually be the built-in Bose sound system, but this song is just getting started! You’ll hit the first note as you enter the inviting foyer and take your first step on that handsome espresso flooring. Step further, into the formal dining room, where you’ll satisfy more than taste with a gorgeous bay window with banquette. Or, shut the world out in the first-floor space that’s perfect for a dedicated, library, sitting room or study. You’ll find this flexible theme repeated throughout this lovely four-bedroom home, where you’ll find an additional bedroom with an ensuite bathroom and one that might become a home gym. Or would that be better suited to the third-floor loft space? Now you’re cooking! Rather, you will be – with gas – in the gourmet kitchen with double ovens, granite counters, and an island that flows right into the family room, where even the coldest winters are cozy, thanks to that glowing gas fireplace. In warmer months, entertaining couldn’t be easier as the family room’s French doors open right onto that aforementioned patio. Why not do the cooking outside? It’s already plumbed with gas and a full-size grill! With so much to offer, you may never want to leave. But if you do, your attached two-car garage is standing by for easy escapes. Truly, 204 Beacon Place NE is your very own slice of heaven!
