Updated 3 Level home in Foggy Bottom, DC with private bath in each bedroom!
Welcome home to 2314 L Street,NW. A very well kept 3 bedroom,semi-detached home in Foggy Bottom,Washington DC. MLS #dc7448925. The home is spacious and a great alternative if you have outgrown your condo/co-op living and/or would prefer the privacy of a semi-detached home.
This 3 level brick home with hard wood floors was built in 1980 and is in a prime location,with a "walkscore" of 98/100(walkscore.com). It is near Foggy Bottom Metro,many restaurants,coffee shops,convenience stores and shopping (including Trader Joe's). It also near such place as the World Bank,George Washington University,George Washington University Hospital. I was also personally intrigued by this Keller Williams' listing home because it is almost directly across the street from my first home in Washington,DC. I used to live in a condominium unit at 2201 L Street, NW. I also loved the location because it was near but not in the midst of "the business district".
It is also a perfect home if you and your guests have cars.Street parking is hard to find and so some people whose homes don't come with a parking spot rent garage spots,which is extra money for somebody to budget each month. A unique feature of this home is its 2 off street parking spots!
As you enter the home through the side entrance,if you walk down the hall toward your left is the washer dryer and powder room. Going forward you enter the updated table space kitchen,which has granite counter tops,newer cabinets and updated appliances. If you feel like eating outside or just catching fresh air,there are sliding doors from the kitchen to a flagstone patio with wood trellis. Back inside
and across the hall is a larger dining area for entertaining.
On the second level of the home is a large family room,which features a fireplace. If you ever needed a fourth bedroom,this room has a closet and I believe would qualify as a legal bedroom. Across the hall is bedroom number 1, a good size room which has a private updated full bath.
On the third level of the home is the second bedroom and third bedroom/owner suite...both are good sizes and again have their own private full baths.
In summary,all 3 bedrooms have private full baths! That is quite hard to come by.
If you want/need office space,there is a foldout ladder leading to the attic. I would suggest insulating the area and adding lighting, to make it a great living space. There is also additional storage space in the attic.
This home's asking price was recently reduced to just under $800k. There is no condo fee or H.O.A. fee. Speaking of condo fees,if you have been searching for 3 bedroom condominiums in Foggy bottom/West End area that are currently active on the market,you will notice the average list price is over a million dollars plus the monthly condo/coop fee.
Overall,I think the home is in an amazing location and is in very good condition. The unique features of this home, specifically the flagstone patio,separate dining and living room, plus private baths in each bedrooom make this home an amazing value and will grab the next buyer's eyes when he/she is ready to sell. And, don't forget 2priceless off street parking spots!
The home is at a price point where I believe it will soon get an offer. Don't miss this great opportunity. Call me today.

Life is good!
