If you like period homes, you will fall in love with this 1893 four-level home with both original features and recent updates. Featured as "Fairview Cottage" in a 1908 Takoma Park publication, this 4BR 2.5BA home offers an old-fashioned front porch complete with teak swing, along with a modern open-plan kitchen featuring granite countertops, maple cabinets, and stainless-steel appliances. It has hardwood floors throughout and offers an oversized detached 2-car garage with automatic door opener. The kitchen overlooks the dining room with its decorative fireplace, ample room for a dining table, and a rare Jefferson window that leads to a south-facing sunroom~ a great place to enjoy sunny winter afternoons! The living room is perfect for entertaining or just relaxing, with plenty of light provided by tall bay windows. This is a great house for parties with an easy flow from living to dining rooms and open access to the kitchen. The first floor has a brand-new air conditioner, while the upper levels have a separately zoned ductless AC. A gas furnace with forced-water radiators~many original~provide heating throughout. A half bathroom that doubles as a laundry room is located conveniently near the back entrance and the mudroom/pantry. The second level has three good-sized bedrooms and a renovated hall bathroom, complete with heated towel rack. One bedroom contains a wall of bay windows, drenching the room with light. On the way up the stairs to the owner~s suite, you pass the signature of ~Miss Mary Lang 1902~ that was uncovered and framed by the sellers during a renovation. This owner~s suite comes complete with wood floors, a built-in chest of drawers and closets, and a huge bathroom with a Jacuzzi-style tub with space for a meditation area. It's a great space to unwind after a long day of work. The backyard is large with a deck behind the house and ample room for children to play. The bigger-than-two-car garage and driveway provide ample parking with space for a workshop. The garage also may have the potential to be converted to an Accessory Dwelling Unit, if desired. The unfinished cellar has lots of storage space and its own storm-cellar door exit. It's ideal for storage or a workshop. County property tax credits of 25% and State tax credits of 20% are available for refurbishment to maintain the historic integrity of the home. ~Fairview Cottage~ is a short drive or walk to the Takoma Metro Station, Whole Foods and the AFI Silver theatre in downtown Silver Spring, and shops and restaurants in Historic Takoma Park. Children can walk to Takoma Park Elementary, Piney Branch Elementary, and Takoma Middle schools, while the high school, Montgomery Blair, is just 15 minutes~ drive away. Don't miss this opportunity to own a piece of Victorian splendor in the Historic District of Takoma Park!
