A south-facing home in Hill East that has truly been loved. Step out of the warm sun and the flickering shadows cast by old trees and into this wide, Federal-style home. Immediately, you are greeted by a spacious and sensibly laid-out living room centered around a working gas fireplace and mantel with bountiful built-in shelves. The ceilings are soaring. The floors are solid, hardwood oak. And the large windows tame the sun’s bright rays with their practical, plantation shutters. The living room flows effortlessly into a large and flexible dining area, fit for a grand table and large family gatherings, or a smaller table with room to spare for work or play. Step past the conveniently located powder room into the bright, open kitchen featuring ample granite-countertops, exceptional pantry/storage space, and new, stainless-steel appliances. Upstairs, an unusually wide center-hallway carries you past generously-sized second and third bedrooms and a newly updated hall bath to the grand finale: A primary bedroom fit for a King (sized-bed)! Built-in cabinets and drawers fill the wall opposite your bed, and three hanging closets frame the entry to the newly updated primary bathroom. The rear of this home spills out onto a spacious deck and into a beautifully landscaped backyard, perfect for grilling and entertaining friends. At the foot of the yard, you’ll find a sturdy shed for extra storage, and secure, off-street parking. At just steps from Safeway, the Potomac Ave Metro, Congressional Cemetery / Dog Park, and the Roost Culinary Clubhouse, you don’t want to miss the opportunity to make 1618 E Street SE your new home.
