5504 42nd Avenue, Hyattsville, MD
Imagine all the charm of a sunny, vintage home with space for everyone you love and everything you need! This impressive American Foursquare-style house draws you in with its gracious proportions and period charm. Once inside, you will love the tall ceilings of the bright living areas with large windows, warm oak floors and the impressive amount of space. The modern convenience of the recently installed, high-efficiency HVAC system will keep you comfortable while the recent electrical heavy-up anticipates your technological needs.
Room to Spread Out
A large, welcoming foyer greets you as you transition into the generous living room which is connected to the large dining room with craftsman details like crown moldings, chair rails and a bay window. This room could easily accommodate a large table that could seat 12 people or more.
You will love the uncluttered kitchen with stainless steel appliances, gas range, roomy pantry and plenty of space for a table which connects to the cheerful family room with vaulted ceilings, windows on three sides and access to the back deck looking out onto the backyard.
The main level, full bathroom is accessed between the kitchen and the study which is sunny and lively with a pleasant view onto the passer-bys on 42nd Avenue.
Upstairs are four generously-sized bedrooms with tall windows and ample closet space. One bedroom has a door to a pretty balcony! These rooms share the newly and a beautifully remodeled bathroom. The next level up features a wood paneled, sun-filled, 500 square foot loft (with tons of storage spaces). This room could be a wonderful office, art studio, playroom or exercise space...it may just become your favorite room in the entire house!
From the welcoming front porch with plenty of room for comfy chairs and a table for outdoor dining along with the back deck looking out onto the fully-fenced back yard and the adorable balcony on the upper floor, this house connects you comfortably to the fresh air and sunlight of the outdoor living areas.

Right in the middle of all the Hyattsville action!
Hyattsville is wonderful! The community comes together in so many creative ways —the Arts & Ales Festival, the Wine Crawl, the Hops Hop, and Porchfest, to name a few. Locals love the music concerts at Brentwood Arts Exchange, Maryland Meadworks, Archie Edwards Blues Foundation, and on the green at Riversdale Mansion.
Stroll to Vigilante for coffee and tea and a hip place to work or take in dinner at local favorite Franklins or Chez Dior. Go "boutiquing" at My Dead Aunt's Books, Suffragette City and Green Owl Design. Enjoy exhibitions, talks and classes at Pyramid Atlantic Arts Center (the internationally known printmaking and book-arts facility). Take the Trolley Trail to the Riverdale Farmer’s Market every Thursday and then to the popular Town Center Market for their fun beer-tasting sessions and the bring-your-own dinner atmosphere. Enjoy easy access to an extensive network of running and biking trails.

Who am I and how can I help you?
I'm Tamara Beauchard - realtor and guide
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.
