DC city living in a quiet neighborhood: Three-story charming Cape Cod along tree-lined street

This quaint Cape Cod built in 1939 is nestled within the tree-lined street known as ‘Brookland’s Gem’, Sigsbee Place. It is located 2 blocks from the neighborhood indoor pool and small gym, 3 blocks away from the Red Line Metro, and a pleasant 10-minute walk to CUA and Trinity campuses. It is within a bike-friendly neighborhood, home to shopping, restaurants & cafes just minutes away!

South-facing windows fill the rooms with plenty of morning & afternoon light. From the outside, the home boasts a quaint landscape featuring indigenous foliage supporting a butterfly-rearing habitat with a raingarden and cistern. The humble interior is preserved with original hardwood floors, arched openings, and doors with glass knobs that maintain their original authenticity. One of the two first floor bedrooms was redesigned to be a snug library-dining room, and the kitchen received a full renovation from its original design.

The upper bedroom was redesigned to resemble a late 1930s studio space that transitions into the master bedroom, equipped with dormers gently framing the private spaces - a vanity station and a cozy reading nook. The basement received a full upgrade to accommodate a second full bathroom and ample space for laundry, work or play.
