This expanded Brookland end-unit rowhouse combines beautiful arts and crafts styling with a modern-day look including chef-inspired kitchen, and jaw-dropping bathrooms. The completely gutted and renovated home on Brookland’s quiet Varnum Street is located just under a mile to the Brookland/CUA metrorail station. The stunning renovation boasts high-quality finishes including finished-in-place hardwood floors, gorgeous moldings, new doors, Samsung appliances, gorgeous granite countertops, and designer door and cabinet hardware.
The original foot print of the home was expanded in the rear on two levels adding 540 square feet, creating a wonderful family room addition on the first floor and an expansive master bedroom suite. Best of all, the unique lot orientation creates for an unusually large and spectacular backyard ideal for entertaining family and friends. The backyard also features a newly-poured cement driveway for 2 cars plus a winding sidewalk to the home’s newly built wooden landing connecting the family room with the backyard.
The main level features a spacious living room with wood-burning fireplace, large eat-in kitchen with expansive peninsula, family room, coat closet, and powder room.
The upper level boasts an enormous master suite, two additional bedrooms, a hall bathroom, and laundry closet complete with new stacked washer/dryer. You’ll love the design of the Master suite that gets flooded with natural light from its south-facing windows overlooking the gorgeous backyard. The en-suite Master bath comes complete with double vanity and stunning walk-in shower with frameless glass shower door and penny-tile flooring.
The lower level features a wet bar, multi-purpose room (think playroom, guest suite, office, music room, etc.), and attractive full bathroom. Also, consider adding a side-entrance to the lower level for an short-term rental apartment (a $7,5000 option).
Brookland is one of DC’s hottest neighborhoods and best values that brings together a quiet residential neighborhood with the convenience and excitement of city living. New development between the historic Brookland commercial corridor (12th Street) and Catholic University has brought wonderful new dining options to the neighborhood and refocused attention on 12th Street which is bound to see new restaurants, retailers, and bars to open in the near future. Located on Metrorail’s redline, the Brookland/CUA station offers quick access to Silver Spring, Capitol Hill, Downtown, Dupont Circle, and north to Bethesda, NIH, and the Biotech corridor in Rockville/Gaithersburg.
