Offered at:  $549,900

Open Sunday, October 8th, 2-4pm

Welcome home to 5107 Illinois Ave NW, a spacious 1,640 square foot row house in Washington’s sought-after Petworth neighborhood. Built in 1925, the two-level, Federal style row house with inviting front porch and walk-out basement boasts early 20th century charm throughout including beautiful original hardwood floors, crown molding, solid-wood doors, and even the original skylight ventilation system in the hall bathroom.

The main level features a formal entry foyer, spacious living room, grand-size dining room, galley kitchen, and den with beautiful multi-pane true divided-light door flanked with additional multi-pane panels. The spacious galley kitchen features a new refrigerator, new gas range, over-the range microwave, dishwasher, timeless white cabinets, and Corian countertops. A rear exit from the kitchen leads to the newly rebuilt iron landing and stairs that’ll take you to the rear patio/yard. The first floor has been freshly painted and boasts new carpet in the den.

The second level has a lovely master bedroom overlooking Illinois Ave and the park, two additional bedrooms each with an adjoining sitting rooms, and hall bathroom that boasts the original built-in medicine cabinet and newly enameled bathtub and tile surround.

With a 640 square foot footprint, the partially-finished basement could be converted to a fabulous play/rec room, or even an in-law suite. The mechanicals for the home are located here as well as the laundry machines. A door at the back of the basement leads to the home’s patio/backyard.

You’ll love the home’s unique location across the street from one of Petworth’s many peaceful parks. The happening Upshur Street Commercial corridor is just ¾ of a mile away and features Timber Pizza, Hank’s Cocktail Bar, Petworth Citizen, Himitsu, Upshur Street books (twice visited by the Obamas), and more. The Georgia Ave-Petworth Metro station is just one mile away so it’s an easy walk or just jump on the bus at Georgia Ave that departs 5x an hour.
