SOLD:  $425,000

If you’re looking for a real home filled with life and love and thoughtfully updated by owners, not investors, look no further! With original woodwork throughout, 36 Crittenden offers the warmth & character of a classic DC home but with many updates.


Upon entry, you’re immediately struck by the view of graceful arches and rich oak hues. Wide archways between living & dining rooms and kitchen allow sunlight to fill the interior from north to south, reflecting off beautiful hardwood floors. The updated kitchen offers stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops, and sleek cabinetry in a modern black & white motif. Upstairs rooms were also updated with original character in mind – even down to the bathroom skylight. And the lower level was completely remodeled, creating a terrific family room with functional built-in shelving. A beautifully tiled hallway leads to a full bath, laundry/storage, and access to the rear patio and yard.

Front and rear yards are planted extensively with perennials and an herb garden. The back patio offers a sweet spot for outside grilling, while the deep, fully-fenced yard provides space for 2-or 4-legged creatures to romp or just hang. And of course the front porch is perfect for the classic DC porch-sit on summer evenings… With Ft. Totten Metro an easy walk, outdoor recreation opportunities at either end of the block, and N. Capitol St. a perfect launch for trips downtown or out-of-town, this home is superbly located!
