UPDATE! 5/13/2022 The house sold for list price in seven days.
Designed by the prominent local architect, Russel Wheeler, this impressive 1939 home is located on a preferred street in the heart of University Park. A curved brick walkway leads through the emerald green lawn to the stately covered front porch with white, Doric columns. The classic, quality craftsmanship of yesterday stands out on the home’s warm brick exterior with elegant keystone details, a Belvedere slate roof, copper gutters/downspouts and operable wood shutters.
Sunlight pours through the large windows of the living and dining rooms with gleaming oak floors, arched openings and beautifully detailed moldings. The roomy, renovated kitchen features heated ceramic tile floors, granite countertops, a tile backplash, oak cabinets, stainless steel appliances and recessed lights. There is a spacious sunroom adjacent to the kitchen which also has heated floors and connects both to the fenced back yard with a large patio as well as the two-car garage. A powder room is situated conveniently between the living room and the kitchen.
Leading up from the large, open foyer are stairs with a lovely curving banister going to the upper floor where there is a spacious, primary bedroom with its own full bathroom and walk-in closet. The second bedroom is roomy and located right next to the upper floor bathroom. Uniquely, the third bedroom, which is drenched with sunlight from large windows on three walls, is accessed through a small sitting room which could serve as an office or play area. Up another flight of open stairs to the third floor is the delightful fourth bedroom with wood-paneled walls and ceilings, hardwood floors, built-in beds, bookshelves and a fold-down desk (it feels like a ship’s cabin!). Across the hall is a large, cedar walk-in closet with ample storage for holiday décor and seasonal attire.
The basement level features a large recreation room with a wet bar and powder room. In the spacious utility room there is a washer and dryer and a tremendous amount of room for storage as well as a door with direct access to the back yard up a flight of stairs.
This home has been lovingly maintained through the years and features many comfortable upgrades. Winters are cozy thanks to the hot water radiators along with the heated floors in the kitchen and sunroom. The tankless, on-demand water heater, installed in 2020, keeps the warm water flowing. The house stays comfortably cool in the summer with the two-zone, central air conditioning and mini-splits. Tilting inward for easy cleaning, are the newer energy efficient, double pane/double hung windows.
University Park is a highly desirable neighborhood located along the Route One Corridor in Prince Georges County. The impressive tree canopy and visually-appealing, well-maintained houses are trademarks of the neighborhood which maintains a quiet small-town feel while, at the same time, being in easy reach of public transportation, shopping, restaurants and entertainment. There is an active civic association which hosts the 4th of July parade, an annual chili cook-off, outdoor movie nights and other fun, yearly events. Families with young children appreciate that University Park Elementary is one of the top-rated schools in the county.
I'm Tamara Beauchard - I help busy people sell their houses easily.
Too many people have been through the horrible process of selling their homes without understanding what price they can expect and how they are supposed to make their homes look for showings. The problem isn't the people selling their homes, the problem is that they needed a better guide.
How can I be your guide? As a top-performing realtor with Re/Max Professionals, I handled nearly $16 million in real estate transactions this past year. I stay on top of the market to ensure that you are confident about the price and the process from our first meeting to the settlement table.
