$800,000 1421 Varnum St NW, Washington, DC 20011
ANY/ALL offers are due to the listing agent by Tuesday (6/4) 3pm - - - Welcome to 1421 Varnum Street NW, where history and charm are combined in this truly captivating residence. Offering three bedrooms and two and a half baths, it's more than just a pretty face - it's a delightful home in a coveted DC neighborhood. Graced by a fully covered front porch adorned in historic colors, you step inside and bask in the sunlight from the south-facing facade and appreciate the original details like the wall sconces in the living room, the intricate crown moldings that flow from the wall onto the ceiling and the beautifully refinished hardwood floors, what's not to love? Glass transoms above the French doors, beautiful period light fixtures and the pieces de resistance, the renovated bath with skylight. This bath has floor-to-ceiling subway tiles, inset medicine cabinet and a deep tub for those well-deserved relaxation sessions - this might just become your favorite room, you tell me. The second-floor sunroom is to die for with an unobstructed northern exposure providing a daily dose of natural bliss. In the day, the lower-level family (party) room was where the entertainment happened and here's your chance to continue the tradition. The original bar is the giveaway. And if you're a collector of memories (or just stuff), the insulated attic provides extra storage for all your treasures.
And let's not forget the green oasis right behind the house - the Piney Spring Green at Webster and Varnum, a nature lover's dream come true. This tree filled, grassy field behind the house is owned and operated by Washington Parks & People in partnership with the neighbors. The Green is open to all to enjoy and support as a hub of community and nature. But wait, there's more! Did you know that Marvin Gaye's parents once owned a house on this street? With Upshur Park set for a $19 million makeover and a rich history to boot, 1421 Varnum Street is not just a home - it's an experience waiting to happen. Don't miss out on the chance to call this gem your own!
