Welcome to this light-filled townhouse located on the cobblestone street of Captain’s Row. Built in 1892, the home retains original details including transoms over doors, wainscoting in dining room, warm pine and heart of pine floors, and a decorative stove in the living room, flanked by built-in bookcases.
The current owner has been a good steward of the property by replacing the oil heat with gas heating, adding a new boiler for the radiator heat (2010), relining the boiler chimney (2005), gas water heater (2014), kitchen floor and gas range (2014); dishwasher (2013), air conditioning and roof (2003). In 2005, the bathroom was renovated, and the exterior was freshly painted in 2015. Other thoughtful improvements have been the built-in cabinets in the master and second bedroom, stylish interior paint, and whimsical wallpaper in the powder room.
With an excellent flow for daily living and entertaining, the home offers a comfortable living room, inviting dining room and large kitchen. Light is admitted to the kitchen through double windows and enhances the appeal of the warm wood cabinets, granite countertops and pine floor. A small breakfast table is accommodated or, in good weather, open the kitchen door to the private patio.
Tall brick and wood walls ensure privacy in the area and frame the planting beds and brick surface. Both table space and a seating area are provided in the patio, while a garden shed stores yard tools and equipment. The alleyway to the street and its garden gate are shared with the next door neighbor.
Upstairs, the master bedroom has good closet space and additional storage in the wall of built-ins. Heart of pine floors continue from this room into the second bedroom. A day bed in this room is framed by built-in cabinetry and tall cupboards. The marble hall bathroom has a linen closet just outside the vanity. In the third bedroom, the owner had a second closet built, so that double closets now frame the window.
The partially finished basement level offers a wall of storage shelves, a spot for the laundry and a rudimentary wine cellar.
Stroll one block east to the Potomac River and one block north to the charms and attractions of King Street. The waterfront is a veritable park with space for bike riding, dog walking, and running. Take the King Street Trolley or a DASH bus to King Street Metro, and Washington Street provides easy access to Washington and the airport.
With a walkability score of over 90, you will enjoy trips to the farmer’s market, grocery stores, restaurants, shops and services.
