A few blocks from the Takoma Metro station, this house is going on the market for the first time in 30 years. The interior retains its original stained wood trim, and the living room has double exposure and a tan brick fireplace. The dining room has a display ledge on three sides and an extra-wide entryway into the expanded kitchen, which has a butcher block-topped island, a second island with raised breakfast bar, and a stainless steel backsplash and hood above the stove. The second bedroom upstairs has a sunroom-like sleeping porch, and the basement has partially-finished space with a laundry area in addition to a rec room that walks out to the backyard. Here, the detached garage was converted into a temperature-controlled studio/office with electricity, and there is also a similarly-shaped screened-in patio structure with ceiling fan in the backyard.
