This M Streets renovation may as well be a new build for all the updates it boasts. And I’m not just talking the cosmetic stuff. With a new roof, HVAC, updated plumbing, electrical, windows, and a tankless water heater, not a bit of 6158 Marquita Avenue was left untouched. It’s pretty and practical. I don’t know that it gets better than that.

Listed by Richard Garza with VIP realty, this gorgeous rehab is going for $799,000. The drive-up is pretty cute, but even still, it’s not remotely the most attractive feature of this home. It’s truly lovely inside. The finish-out choices are spot on. And with four bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and two half bathrooms in 3,177 square feet, it’s spacious in all the right ways. Join us after the jump to see for yourself.
