The quintessential Takoma Bungalow w/ 3,000 sq ft over 3 levels. 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and 2 parking spots. Huge covered porch spanning the length of the home in the front with a rear deck overlooking the private green yard. The lower level is a blank slate. The possibilities are endless. Already has a roughed in full bathroom. It would be easy to upgrade this 1,000+ sq ft lower level to a 2 bedroom/1 bathroom rental suite. Remodeled kitchen and bathrooms. This home is turnkey with the flexibility to upgrade the bedrooms for instant equity. Location is 1 block from Walter Reed $1 billion development and .05 of a mile from the Takoma Metro and downtown Takoma Park. Downtown Silver Spring is also just a quick stroll up the road to hundreds of restaurants, breweries, shops, entertainment, etc. This home is situated so you have access to the perfect blend of community, walkability, space, and city living.
Why We Love Takoma: It feels like a small town, with a weekly farmers’ market and the main street home to independent shops all while being just minutes away from everything else in the city. Not to be confused with Takoma Park in Maryland, this DC neighborhood in the northwest quadrant of the city, is a spirited close-knit community shared by residents who have lived there for decades as well as young first-time homebuyers. The attractive location is near DC’s restaurant and retail hotspots but also includes its own set of restaurants and shops. The neighborhood is a delightful quiet green and leafy oasis full of historic homes with large lots and characters. Homes vary in style including Craftsman Bungalows, Tudors, Victorians, and Colonials.
Takoma is the perfect mix of urban convenience with the space and proximity to nature (close to Rock Creek Park) of the suburbs. Its small downtown has been recently re-developed, attracting new businesses and new residents. The neighborhood is very walkable and bike-able while the Takoma Metro Station (Red Line) connects the neighborhood to the city. Residents love Takoma and are passionate about preserving the quality of life and eclectic character of the neighborhood. With a great community center, so many fantastic community events, destination restaurants and shops, and a statue of its most famous rooster, it’s easy to see why residents fall in love with this slice of a small town inside the Beltway.
