This stunning craftsman style home is the epitome of DC historic charm. 6001 3rd ST NW sits perched nicely on an extraordinary corner lot nestled in between the Takoma, Brightwood & Manor Park neighborhoods. This home still exudes much of its 1925 character yet has been modernized to accommodate the needs of today's living. The home underwent a major renovation in 2016 and has been lovingly updated and improved by the current owners since then. The level yard is fully fenced, with a picket fence in the front and privacy fence in rear yard. The mature and thoughtful landscaping can be enjoyed from the inviting front porch, the large rear deck that spans the width of the house, or the patio area. There is an area of the yard which features raised garden beds and there is a detached one car garage for off street parking and/or extra storage. This home features hardwood floors throughout the main and top levels and windows galore! There is a perfect blend of openness with plenty of wall space to still provide defined living and dining areas. The large eat-in kitchen is at the back of the main level with tons of white shaker cabinetry, ample countertop space, a large deep sink, gas range with double oven feature, and raised island with space for stools. From the kitchen area, there are glass doors with access to the deck area for easy entertaining! The main level also features a convenient powder room, coat closet, high ceilings, recessed lighting and crown molding. Top level features an incredible owner's suite with a wall of closets and a gorgeous bathroom featuring a navy double vanity with marble top, classic honeycomb marble floor tiles, and a spa-like shower with herringbone patterned glass tiles and brushed bronze fixtures throughout. In the top level hallway is a closet with front loading, full sized washer/dryer set. There are two additional generous sized bedrooms on the top level and a full bathroom with tub to service them, accessible from the hallway. Each bedroom has both recessed lighting and a ceiling fan. The lower level of the home is a fully finished living space with full bathroom and features full daylight and a walk out door to the side yard. There is a plumbing rough in if one wanted to set up a wet bar near the beautiful reclaimed wood shelving, that can convey if a buyer desires. What a truly special home in a very special community! Located less than a mile to the Takoma Metro Station, close to multiple parks including the Takoma Community Center with an indoor pool, computer lab, basketball & tennis courts & fields, shops, restaurants and breweries, and the Walter Reed Development to be anchored by Whole Foods!
