Charm and character of the past meet luxury, elegance and an great location in the sought after American University Park. This 5 bedroom, 4 full bath corner lot home offers one of the largest lots in the area with a spacious front and private back yard including a two car garage and driveway for plenty of off street parking (not generally available in this area for most homes). This amazing home offers two actual street addresses with access from the front on Massachusetts Avenue and the back identified as 4400 49th Street, NW. The attention to detail in both the original construction and the upkeep and updates of this home are apparent including the beautifully maintained original hardwood floors and stairwells on the main and upper level, the doorways, archways, railings and trim work, and the beautiful slate roof. The very functional kitchen was updated by this owner and the boiler was replaced in 2017. The dining room and living room offer elegance and comfort to entertain family and guests including a wood burning fireplace in the living room. The bedrooms offer spacious space with the added potential to use the back bedroom on the main floor of the home as a functional home or professional office (was used as a doctor's office in the past by previous owners) or can offer a great space for an in law suite. The 4th bedroom upstairs can also be used as an office/den with customer built in shelving, desk space, cabinets and a safe. Bathrooms are well maintained with the character of the original designs standing the test of time offering a clean retro feel. Enjoy the screened porch looking out to nicely landscaped private fenced back yard with nice brick patio and small pond. The basement offers a peaceful and cozy family room gathering area with another wood burning fireplace as well as a wine cellar straight out of story book with an enchanted castle looking door as well as 2 rooms for utility/shop/craft area and lots of different storage options. The 4th floor attic accessed by stairwell offers lots of additional storage and other use opportunities or additional rooms. The hot tub in private courtyard fenced area between home and the garage conveys. This property offers many options for any buyer to put their stamp on history. One mile to Metro and shopping and food options just steps away from this home.
