Homes like this don’t come around every day! Absolutely stunning 5BR/4.5BA expanded cottage in HOT Brightwood! Open-plan w/ white walls and bold design elements showcases a beautifully functional space awash in natural light. The kitchen is the heart and literal center of this home and a showstopper w/ 2-tone cabinets, oversized range, floating shelves, and a 10-foot island! Imagine hosting dinners here! The airy living room has gorgeous ceiling details and luscious backyard views. The dining area is a flex space, going from cozy to party-worthy w/adjacent built-in/window seating. The custom mud and powder rooms are incredible! There’s even a rare bedroom/office suite w/full bath on this level! Upstairs, the first bdrm feels magical, with a hidden surprise waiting to be discovered! The middle bdrm is charming and eclectic and the hall bath, gorgeous with a custom double vanity! But the owner’s suite is a revelation – both moody and bright w/ vaulted ceilings and a double, walk-in closet (with built-ins)! The private bath is stunning w/ double sinks and a massive shower! Downstairs, the in-law suite has a large family rm, kitchenette, bdrm, and full BA. Outdoors is a paradise – the large rear deck w/ gorgeous pergola, metal railings, and twinkling lights is stunning. The large, fully-fenced yard has secure tandem parking for 2+ cars. Brightwood is a gem of a neighborhood with lots of green space and an urban/surburban feel. Located between Petworth and Takoma Park, it’s convenient to the restaurants, shopping, and amenities of both. The neighborhood’s new $1 billion dollar, 66-acre mixed-use development, The Parks at Walter Reed, with its town center plaza, Whole Foods, restaurants, shops, an ice rink, and much more is underway!
