SOLD:  $680,000

Welcome to 2605 11th St., NW!  Elegant albeit somewhat worn, this has been a loved and loyal home for twenty years and is now in need of TLC and repair. 

The charm of this home is bountifully apparent - from the gracious spaces, to the built-in dining room china cabinet, to the antique telephone shelf in the main level hall.  The front door alone catches your eye with its transom windows and sidelights, and once you’ve entered the foyer, two unspoiled sets of double French doors – also with transom windows –pull you further into the home.  

Additional characteristics worth noting:  the large basement (with two exits), offers terrific potential for a spacious family room and/or additional bedroom.  The rear yard offers enough space to garden or let little 2-leggeds or 4-leggeds romp. And you can enjoy outdoor meals on the main deck, or coffee and sunrise on the upstairs deck… Life is good!

One does not need a lot of imagination to see the exciting possibilities of this house!  Whether it receives an immediate and complete renovation by new owners, or whether upgrades are made over time – 2605 11th promises to be a stunning residence once again.
