OPEN HOUSE CANCELLED. Sellers accepted an offer. This is your chance to meet the Grande Dame of North Carolina Ave! Built in 1900 and located on one of the best blocks in DC, 139 North Carolina is all dignified beauty and cozy vibes. She is splendid in length and provides three levels for living. She is a stunning beauty with carefully preserved architectural details, wood floors throughout, an updated kitchen that would delight the most finicky of chefs, huge windows with so much natural light flooding in and a backyard that is a perfect oasis. But, I've been told the true joy of 139 is in the smaller moments that bring delight to each day. Knowing that spring is here when you see that first bud on the cherry tree in your front yard - each year it's the first bloom on the block! Harvesting a special herb from your garden to flavor a summertime feast. Catching that unique smell as the first fire of the season starts to tickle the crisp fall air. The cozy, quiet feeling of watching the snow fall on the Capitol dome from the 3rd floor windows. 139 truly provides a majestic framework in which to live your best life. But wait... there's more. Beyond the back yard is a bonus studio/office/guest house with it's own full bath and kitchenette that will offer enormous flexibility and sophistication to your lifestyle. It truly would be hard to find a better location. From 139, it's only two blocks to The South Capitol Street Metro Station. Feel like spending a little time at the museums? It's a 15 minute walk to the National Mall and The Smithsonian. Museum tour wear you out? Just hop on the metro home! How about a ball game? It's a 20 minute walk to Nats Park. Have an extra hour or two to spend with artists and farmers on the weekend? It's only a 10 minute walk to Eastern Market. Walking the dog or looking for a fun playground for the kids? You have 4 parks to choose from - it's 5 minutes or less to Folger Park, Providence Park, Garfield Park or Marion Park. And schools - there are three schools within 2 or 3 blocks - Brent Elementary, St Peters and Capitol Hill Day School. Whole Foods is only a 7 minute walk away. This location can't be beat. What does it mean to be a Grande Dame? The definition of a Grande Dame is: a wise woman of great prestige and ability. Yep, 139 nails it. Come and see for yourself! Be prepared to have her sweep you off your feet. Sold as-is. Sellers reserve the right to accept or refuse any offer at any time.
