When a special tip came in from one of our readers about this fabulous M Streets Colonial cottage, I couldn’t resist giving it the spotlight it deserves. This week’s Friday Five Hundred is situated on a quiet corner lot within walking distance to Greenville Avenue, and if you’re thinking “older home, small closets,” well, think again!
Agents Brenda White and Melissa White Smulyan of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty say, “The master bath and closet have been totally gutted. You get the luxury of a huge walk-in closet and bathroom with double vanities, quartz countertops, and the charm of a 1940s cottage.”
And speaking of charm, who wouldn’t want to sit on this front porch and watch the world go by? Melissa says the neighborhood is filled with people out walking their dogs and moms pushing baby strollers – a picture-perfect setting that couldn’t be more inviting.
“You’re guaranteed to see a handful of folks stroll by at any given time,” she says. “And when you decide to venture out, you’re just a block away from Greenville Ave. to grab dinner, drinks, or a show at the Granada Theatre.”
Aside from the desirable M Streeta location and darling brick façade, the home affords a spacious 2,053 square feet, complete with three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, an eat-in gourmet kitchen met by a gracious formal dining room, and not one, but two light-filled living areas built to entertain.
We can’t get enough of the gorgeous hardwoods, crisp white moldings, and sophisticated color palette, not to mention the charming fireplace and French doors leading to a secluded patio and fenced backyard.
The lushly landscaped lot is a real prize, plus it’s situated in the exemplary Stonewall Jackson Elementary School district! Melissa says, “This expanded M Street cottage is the perfect home for a discerning young buyer looking for the benefits of home ownership as well as the walkable lifestyle that the area offers.” See for yourself next weekend at the Open House, Sunday, April 22 from 2-4 p.m.
