A charming front porch with peaceful views over Sherman Circle Park welcomes you home to this incredible residence. Bursting with style and class, this is a home for those who prefer the finer things in life. A sprawling floorplan offers four bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms and a modern open-concept layout ready for entertaining. Recessed lighting, crown molding and tray ceilings are on show throughout, paired with hardwood floors and a neutral color scheme that allows the views to shine through.

 

An open-plan living and formal dining room are set at the front of the home while the kitchen is nestled at the rear of the layout along with a breakfast nook that opens out to the deck. A family room with a wet bar with a wine fridge is located downstairs, along with a full bath, a bedroom perfect for use as a guest suite, and a walk-out to the rear yard. Three more bedrooms are housed upstairs, all with closets and easy access to a full bath while the primary suite enjoys a vaulted ceiling, large windows and a private ensuite with a skylight. A half bath, upper-level laundry and a coat closet complete this property’s impressive layout.

 

Outside, a fully fenced yard awaits and there is also off-street parking for two cars. You will live within a wonderful neighborhood close to the Yes! Organic Market, the many cafes of Petworth and the vibrant restaurants of Upshur Street. On Saturdays, the Petworth Farmers Market is open and you are also close to a host of recreation centers and athletic fields. This bustling neighborhood is fast becoming a real estate favorite with an abundance of culture, convenient transportation and beautifully-updated homes just like this chic abode.

One of Petworth’s best-known claims to fame is President Lincoln’s Cottage, but while the rest of the neighborhood might not be familiar to visitors yet, residents recognize its unique flair and offerings. From neighborhood gatherings to unique pop-up restaurants and independent shops, Petworth has something special for all visitors. Dig deeper and discover both one-time and all-the-time activities to enjoy in this neighborhood throughout the year. Petworth is known for its community events. Held in early summer, Celebrate Petworth is an annual event anchored around art, music, food, healthy living and family. You’ll want to visit the festival’s Arts Zone, featuring local arts vendors, clothing boutiques, live muralists and performance artists. Little ones will love the Kids Zone, which includes crafts, a puppet theater and storytime. The Petworth Jazz Project is a free music series held in Petworth Park at 8th and Taylor Streets from May through September. Past performers include Kris Funn, Herb Scott and Akua Allrich. Have an interest in arts and crafts? Petworth’s Upshur Street Handmade Art & Craft Fair is an annual event held each December featuring vendors, sponsors, performers, shoppers, entertainers and local businesses who crowd the sidewalks for a fun neighborhood celebration.

 


Home cooks will want to visit The Petworth Community Market, a weekly farmers’ market held on Saturdays from May through November. The market features produce, prepared food and local vendors such as Sweet Crimes, Panorama Bakery and Harrar Coffee & Roastery. The market also hosts performances by musicians and artists, as well as chefs who put together cooking demonstrations. Exploring the neighborhood’s restaurant scene is also a must – Petworth is home to not one, but two, of Bon Appétit’s best new restaurants in America for 2017. Himitsu, the no reservations, quaint 24-seat restaurant inhabiting the Upshur strip, delivers on what first-time restaurateurs Kevin Tien and Carlie Steiner call “New Japanese.” And just across the street is Timber Pizza Co., a former food truck turned brick-and-mortar that’s been wowing pizza lovers in a cool, industrial-chic space. Bookworms will love Upshur Street Books. Discover quirky picture books, books about DC’s past and present, work from local authors (politicians included), essay collections, novels, puzzles and much more. If you like enjoying a cocktail while reading, head to the Petworth Citizen & Reading Room. The classy spot is a neighborhood literary bar and restaurant with friendly service, tasty food and delicious drinks.
