Located in an enclave of 18 all brick townhomes ~the Mews~, this exquisite unique home is the product of quality renovation in 2000. Over 3000SFof perfectly appointed space. The interior of this home was rebuilt from the ground up. Originally the kitchen, laundry and dining room were located on the lower level. Each level of this home was reconfigured for optimal use & functionality. Situated near the corners of Princess & Royal Streets, this fine home is central to the amenities of Old Town & all which it has to offer. You are 3 blocks from King Street & 3 blocks to the Potomac River. City Hall is right down the street & so are all the restaurants, shops and the hustle & bustle of the business corridor, yet this residential area is just far enough away that street parking is not an issue. The flagstone patio was completed in the spring of 2007 & provides a marvelous getaway in the middle of the city. The Mews, itself provides a lovely setting of mature trees & plantings which the residents loving maintain as there is NO HOME OWNER ASSOCIATION for this community. Improvements in the last year include: New Marvin 2nd Generation Windows and French Doors. New quartz countertops in kitchen with under mount sink, subway tile backsplash. New light fixtures installed throughout. New Ceiling fans throughout. New double sink vanity, mirrors, lights, countertop, sinks and fixtures, new high comfort toilets in Jack and Jill bath. New light fixtures and comfort toilets in both powder rooms. New vanity, countertop, sinks, fixtures, lighted mirrors and comfort toilet in Master Bath. Two Shower wall units in master shower. Interior freshly painted with neutral color scheme throughout. During the initial renovation, the townhouse was gutted to the bare cinder blocks. New plumbing, electric, cable, phone was installed throughout. Then new drywall was installed throughout. New vinyl windows were installed at the time, subsequently replaced last year with the Marvin windows. Every piece of molding was replaced. Doorways were widened and rooms reconfigured. Gas was run from the street and the two fireplaces were converted to gas. There is gas cooking, a gas water heater and a natural gas grill on the flagstone patio. The North side of Old Town is a wonderful place to live. Close enough to the restaurants, shopping and other amenities of Old Town without out being bothered with the commercial activity of city center. Two metros are within healthy walking distance and commuting is EZ either via the George Washington Parkway or the Beltway. Life is good in Old Town! [Princess Royal - $1,250,000]
