Room to Play in Historic Hyattsville

With 900 deceptively spacious interior square feet, this house in the Hyattsville Historic District has a lot of room to play, both inside and outside. Through the screened-in front porch, the living room opens up to a bright eat-in kitchen with white and pewter blue cabinetry, butcher block countertops, a hood above the stove, under-cabinet lighting, and shelving fit across the window above the farmhouse basin sink. Stairs in the kitchen lead down to a landing where sliding glass doors provide access to the rear deck, attached to an L-shaped bench with fire table, and an ample yard with a play castle and sandbox. At the bottom of the stairs, the lower level has a rec room with a rock-climbing wall, a half-bath, a laundry room, and plenty of storage space. The house also has a parking pad and a tree with a swing in the side yard.
