NEW PRICE. Get even more for your money - more living space, more yard, and more charm - with this single family, detached Craftsman less than a mile from The Parks at Walter Reed. Built in 1909 and substantially renovated in 2011, this home retains its traditional character while providing modern comforts.

A deep front porch is set high above the street for better breezes. A real entry foyer in the front and a mud room with built-ins in the back make coming and going convenient and easy. The entertaining level has a large living room with coffered ceilings and a wood-burning fireplace. The adjoining dining room is wrapped in windows and easily fits a table for 8-10 beneath a gorgeous contemporary chandelier. The open kitchen has white shaker cabinets, granite and marble counters, two sinks, high-end appliances, a glass-door pantry and a coat closet, and a discrete powder room.

Continue the party outdoors, just off the kitchen, on the flagstone patio with lots of room for seating and grilling. The HUGE 8,125 sqft lot provides a rear lawn that is partly shaded by towering trees and surrounded by lush landscaping and a wood privacy fence. An off-street parking pad with room for two cars sits just behind the gate.

Upstairs, a primary suite accommodates a king-sized bed and has two deep closets and an en-suite bathroom. This gorgeous primary bath has a double-sink vanity, a tiled shower and a free-standing tub. Two other big bedrooms share a second full-bath with a tub shower and window. All the bedrooms on this level have great closet storage and windows on two sides for balanced light.
