Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: Michael and I have lived in the D.C. area since 2002. He is employed by a non-profit organization and I work from home mostly as a volunteer. I have been a volunteer at the National Cathedral and have been a member of P.E.O. since 1994. We grew up Mississippi and have two adult children, two cats, and a dog. We enjoy our family, travel, music, and outdoor activities. We are friendly and will do whatever we can to ensure you have an enjoyable stay.
Why the Owner Chose Takoma Park, MD, USA:
We chose Takoma Park for it's unique flavor and proximity to Washington D.C. This house is also unique. It has lots of charm and space and the double lot gives us privacy and more room for gardening. We love the neighborhood. Takoma Park is funky and friendly. There is a real community feel. It's like living in a small town in the middle of a big city. Living in this part of the county means we can get easily to the major airports and trains without a car if need be and we are only about 2 or 3 miles to the Beltway and I-95.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The main reason we bought this house was the convenient location to downtown D.C. to allow for an easy commute to work. My husband can ride his bike to work or take the Metro. Equally we were attracted to the details of the property. The house is adorable with many lovely, unique features. It was build in 1936 and has beautiful wooden floors, large windows, and great views year round. I love to sit on the front porch in the evening and watch people go by with their children and pets. Dining on the rear deck with friends and neighbors is great fun. Lilting music and the smell of dinner cooking on the neighbor's grill mixes in the summer evening adding a comforting layer to the ambiance. Fireflies dance in the dusk. The beautiful new kitchen is fantastic with enough room to entertain or even turn up the stereo and dance. Handcrafted windows and cabinetry add old country charm.
