Open this Sat from 1-3 and eaasy to show. This was the last home designed by artist Ella Bennett Sherman, wife of Cleveland Park's developer John Sherman. Built in 1908, the home became known as the “Sherman Cottage” and today offers both historic charm and modern conveniences. With finished space of 2,600 square feet, this home features 4 bedrooms, 3.5-baths, and welcoming outdoor space in a serene neighborhood. A covered front porch with swing seat and light-filled entry way welcome guests into this bright 4-level home with a traditional floorplan. Gleaming heart pine and cherry hardwood floors appear throughout the home. The main level comprises a living room with built-in shelves, family room with built-in shelves and wood-burning fireplace, powder room, kitchen with breakfast bar, and dining room with floor-to-ceiling windows and access to an attached two-level deck where residents can enjoy outdoor dining with views of lush green trees. The second level features a master bedroom with ensuite bath, adjoining study with built-in bookcase and access to the deck's upper level (ideal for sunbathing in the summer months), a second bedroom, and a second full bath. The third level features vaulted ceilings, a third bedroom with skylights which could also function as an office, and ample closet space. On the lower level, guests will find a fourth bedroom, third full bathroom, finished storage room/utility room, and laundry room. A communal driveway and detached two-car garage are shared with the neighboring home. The owners have made substantial improvements during the last 5 years. They gutted the primary bathroom and installed a frameless shower, a contemporary wall mount sink, new Porcelanosa wall and floor tiles and lighting. They upgraded the other bathrooms. They renovated the kitchen with new appliances, new marble countertops, Porcelanosa flooring and new lighting. They created a warm focal point in the family room by redesigning the fireplace in an amber colored stone that compliments the tones of the heart pine floors. A new walk-in closet and dressing room was created out of underutilized space in the top floor bedroom. The space in the lower level laundry room was revamped to improve storage. The shared garage was refurbished with a new cement floor, new roof and shingle repair. With its charming homes, tree-lined streets, and quaint commercial center, Cleveland Park presents residents and visitors with the best of both worlds–– a small-town setting and peaceful vibe, with easy access to the bustling city by Metro or car. Residents need not wander far for access to a variety of shops and restaurants along Connecticut Avenue or the open spaces and outdoor activities in nearby Rock Creek Park. Don't miss your opportunity to tour this beautiful historic residence with its inviting indoor and outdoor space in one of DC's most desirable residential neighborhoods. Please note, sellers need rent back through August 10th
