When one can have the charm of Old Town, the convenience of 4 bedrooms and 3 ½ baths, and add the bonus of amazing finishings, open plan living and loads of light, it’s simply hard to beat. This wonderful home welcomes you with the curb appeal that is a trademark of Yates Gardens. No less than a white picket fence, redbud tree (ah, the blossoms in spring!), brick steps and path, and a small grassy yard welcome you. The main level (complete with coat closet and a stylish half bath!) starts with a traditional living room and grey-stained oak flooring...

that carries through the main and upper levels. The large window brings in plenty of sunshine, or keep only the storm door open during the day for double the light. A wood-burning fireplace is flanked by built-ins to display your treasures, and a nook is perfect for a home office or extra seating area. Through to the amazing kitchen, part of a 2-level 2015 addition.... Carrara marble counters and seating bar, pendant and recessed lighting, stainless appliances, a white farmhouse sink, soft-close cabinets, and plenty of space for a table characterize the space. On the side wall is a built-in bench that could be used with a table or for friends to sit and chat while you prepare a meal. Additional built-ins are configured for both display and the functionality of storing your media/entertainment equipment. The afternoon light at the rear of the house rivals the morning sun in the front, with a bank of windows and (full light) door to the garden. And ahhhhhh, the garden. There is a lower patio with built in grill and entertainment bar; steps to lovely garden space, and an upper deck for lounging. The very back of the property is an open slate for your landscaping creativity, with excellent wood storage for winter fires. The upper level has two cozy bedrooms to the front that share a hall bath with tub. The primary suite boasts separate closets for two, a second HVAC zone (that includes the full upper level), spacious bedroom with a wall of windows (again, for that afternoon light!), and a luxurious en-suite bath. The glass shower, double vanity, and charming exposed brick wall, as well as a Victoria and Albert freestanding soaking tub and space to move, give you all that you’re dreaming of for morning prep or evening relaxation! The lower level can be used as a rec room or 4th bedroom, complete with yet more built-ins and full-size window for light and egress! A full, en-suite bath with spa shower (shower head plus 4 side jets!) and stacked, full-size laundry finishes the home. This block of S Royal Street has plentiful and easy, angled parking for residents and guest, and is only a block to Jones Point Park, a few blocks to the Potomac river walking and biking paths, a quick jaunt to loads of grocery options, and just over a half mile stroll to King Street where Old Town has so much to offer. Check out the sneak peek video and plan to ...Make this truly special house home!
