Under contract! Seat Pleasant Fixer-Upper

405 71st Avenue, Capitol Heights - $299,900

5 bed, 1.5 baths

Great opportunity to own a large Single-Family Home on a quiet street with nicely tended houses.

Huge private flat backyard and no HOA fees. This house is a diamond in the rough with around 2000 SF located in the beautiful Pleasant Valley subdivision on a street with no thru traffic. It backs to a gorgeous woodland of old-growth trees leading down to Cabin Branch Creek. The level concrete driveway can accommodate 3 cars and the flat back yard is easily accessed from the driveway.

There is a surprising amount of space inside with 5 comfortable-sized bedrooms, a pleasant living room, large recreation room, huge basement storage room, full bath on the upper level and half bath on the lower level (this room is big and can fit a bathtub or shower to make a full second bathroom).

The roomy 12’x13’ kitchen features enough room for a table, a large pantry and a big window overlooking the backyard. The floors on the main level are high-quality hardwood ready to be brought back to their original beauty.

Convenient location with great local amenities. Close to the extensive play areas of Goodwin Park, the Chesapeake Beach Railway Trail and the Seat Pleasant Activity Center. Minutes to DC. About ½ mile to the Addison Road Metro Station – Blue and Silver Line! Easy access to major commuter routes US-1, MD-704, and I-495. The location is fantastic, and this house has so much potential. Transform this into your dream home!

Great Re-sale Value!

This recently renovated home with similar features on the same street sold for $402,000!

Seat Pleasant - a Charming Town!

Founded near the turn of the 20th century as one of the county’s early streetcar suburbs, Seat Pleasant is a friendly community located just over the District of Columbia line at its northeast corner. It is hilly and wooded with beautiful parks, trails and historic sites. There are great local civic events like Seat Pleasant Day featuring a 4K Run/Walk and Pet Parade.

The whole town is within easy walking or biking distance of two Blue/Silver Line Metrorail stations (Addison Road-Seat Pleasant and Capitol Heights). Most of the city’s residential neighborhoods are laid out in a grid, on quiet tree-lined streets with single-family homes. There is a huge park in the center of town and several nearby indoor recreation centers. Two major state highways—Central Avenue (MD 214) and Martin Luther King Jr. Highway (MD 704)—run through the city, and the city’s main commercial corridors are located next to those two highways.

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.
