The M Streets is a great urban area because it ticks off every box in the single-family-home amenity checklist and it’s 10 minutes from downtown.
Great location close to shopping, work, and play? Check! Fabulous homes in a thriving upscale area? Check! Good elementary school? Check! Active neighborhood association? Check and check!
So if you think that there’s no way a family could afford to live in an area such as this, with pedestrian-friendly, tree-lined streets, close to downtown and mass transit, and with a TEA blue-ribbon campus to boot, you’re wrong.
This little stunner in Stonewall Terrace, a two-bedroom, two-bath cottage at 5902 Winton Street, is priced at just $320,000. That’s an insane deal considering the location and updates in this home, which Ebby Halliday Realtor Barbara Barney calls “one of the most stylishly updated homes in the M Streets.”
Beautiful hardwood floors, a gorgeous little kitchen, and an expanded master suite make this home perfect for anyone who wants to live in an urban area but doesn’t want to do the rehab work that many older homes require. This one, built in 1940, is clean and bright inside thanks to the hard work the sellers have put in.
It’s spacious but still cozy, with a wood-burning fireplace in the living area, which also sports a vaulted ceiling. There’s more than 1,700 square feet of living space in this home, and an attached two-car garage — a great asset considering how tight parking is in more urban neighborhoods.
The backyard is fantastic, too, with a great deck for entertaining and a lush lawn that everyone can enjoy. What do you think?
