Butcher Block Countertops, Cubbies and a Sandbox
Across town in Brookland, this craftsman bungalow offers a front porch and an abundance of yard space. Columns define the entrance to the living room to the right of the entry hall and create built-in shelving cubbies across from a stone fireplace. Wood paneled french doors lead into the formal dining room with tray ceiling, which also has access to an office bonus room with recessed shelving built into a nook. The tiled kitchen is divided on either side of the doorway, with white cabinets and a stove integrated into butcher block countertops beneath a stainless steel hood, where a series of windows create a sunroom-like nook. Three brightly-lit bedrooms each have walk-in closets and share a full bath upstairs, while a fourth bedroom sits in the tiled basement. The rear yard also has a two-car parking pad and a garage with a sandbox play area wedged between the garage and a fence.
