Transom = "a transverse horizontal structural beam or bar, or a crosspiece separating a door from a window above it." Transom windows are a common feature in classic D.C. rowhomes and this stunning Uptown D.C. property, built in 1930, has been thoughtfully maintained and still has beautiful transom windows over the bedroom doors upstairs. The upper level of this home also features soft-pine hardwood floors in great condition that are original to the home. Welcome to 420 Jefferson Street NW, only one block off of the bustling Kennedy Street Commercial Corridor which is ripe for redevelopment. This area has seen significant delivery of single-family options in the last few years with even more commercial and retail options planned for the near future. Close enough to appreciate but far enough to still comfortably enjoy the space and land that makes this home quintessential Brightwood Park. The oversized windows on the main level welcome ample natural light throughout the day, and you are immediately greeted by an exposed brick wall that leads you from the entry foyer to the upper level of the home. The hardwood floors on the main level continue through the open and updated kitchen to the bonus sitting room/den at the rear of the home. Immediately off the rear bonus room is an oversized deck, spacious yard, and detached garage currently outfitted as a professional woodworking studio and equipped with a sub-panel for enough power to operate the heavy machinery. Rare to find a home in D.C. that has a fully functioning studio/workspace AND still has generous outdoor space for entertaining- you've got both here! Coming back into the home from the deck you will notice the kitchen - which features stainless steel appliances, sleek backsplash and oversized, custom cabinetry, open but still defined and maintaining the original feel that is lost in so many gut renovation projects. The lower level features a full size bathroom, space for additional guests and a door that opens to the back yard through the laundry room. The upper level of this home features three bedrooms and one fully renovated bath. The landing at the top of the steps always has natural light from the transom windows and is wonderfully accented by the exposed brick wall. The built-in closet in the master bedroom offers significantly more storage than your standard D.C. rowhome and the beautiful pine floors and switched lights leave little to be desired. The spacious upper level bathroom has a custom vanity, tile flooring, beautiful glass accent, built in shelves and timeless subway tiles in the shower. The value opportunity is undeniable and all the major updates have been addressed. Amenities nearby are abundant and include Petworth with all its dining, nightlife and transportation options to the south; The Parks and Walter Reed development with Whole Foods on the development plans, right next to Takoma Metro to the north; and Fort Totten and all the Riggs Park development to the east, Fort Slocum Park close by and Rock Creek Park to the west. Welcome home!
