This classic rowhouse is the epitome of DC historic charm. 5110 3rd ST NW sits perched nicely on a large green lot nestled in between the Petworth, Brightwood & Fort Totten neighborhoods. This home still exudes much of its 1936 character yet has been modernized to accommodate the needs of today's living. The home has been lovingly updated and improved by the current owners. The mature and thoughtful landscaping, to include beautiful perennials & fruit trees/bushes, can be enjoyed from the inviting front porch which has been rebuilt, as well the large rear deck that has been beautifully maintained, or the newly constructed patio area that was built to include drainage with the DC RiverSmart Program. The rear yard has been privatized with a fence with gate and faces open space in the alley way to give a beautiful open view. This home features perfectly refinished original hardwood flooring throughout the main and top levels and so many large windows - all have been replaced with Thompson Creek windows. There is a perfect blend of openness, as this is a wider than usual rowhome, with plenty of wall space to still provide defined living and dining areas. The updated kitchen is at the back of the main level and open to the dining area with ample 2-toned cabinetry, incredible Quartz countertop space, backsplash, and new appliances to include a gas range.
