Property Description

This home is drastically UNDER-PRICED for the RIGHT buyer (see tax assessed value in addition to nearby sold prices). Why? because of the opportunity to make some very minor cosmetic improvements, and have your own contractor execute some design solutions. (ask your Realtor to send you attached "The Renovated Home Suggestions Sheet") Features and floorplan that are so loved in the Delray area, with the solid construction of homes built in this era. The kitchen is gorgeous, upgraded and fully outfitted to include stainless appliances and under cabinet lighting to highlight the french vanilla colored cabinets. A prized feature is walking right out to the screened porch - Back yard is nicely terraced giving you privacy and level areas to add fire pit, outdoor dining, hammocks, whatever you enjoy in solitude or quiet conversation. The walnut stained hardwood floors throughout upper two levels are blemish free and the foundation for you to customize other features like light fixtures, paint, adding recessed lights, modernize the fireplace, and how many built-in bookcases you want to keep. Main level 3 season room is already perfect for a home office you can shut behind the glass french door, craft or hobby room, library, or additional sitting room that walks out onto the deck (also in fantastic low maintenance condition as it's been built recently with composite and vinyl). Upstairs are three lovely bedrooms and a stunning bathroom with heated herringbone tile floors, dual vanities and oversized soaking tub - it might just need to be sacrificed to accommodate your lifestyle. Bathroom is currently "jack and jill" style shared by master and second bedrooms. So if you only need two bedrooms and an office or nursery upstairs for a while - awesome! But if you want to immediately turn this back into a $1M home- convert that oversized pretty bathroom into two baths (or at a minimum renovate so it opens to the hallway again). The master bedroom also has cool features like cedar lined closets, a built in window seat for storage, and door to giant balcony for morning coffee. This still offers you a finished basement, and not even a creepy old dark one! Completely tiled floors, with a second woodburning fireplace. There is even a third bedroom - and small but pretty modern tiled bath down the hall, just past the laundry! A HUGE OPPORTUNITY for a buyer with renovation skills or connections. To be able to buy a home so close to Delray, Alexandria Country Day School, Reagan National Airport, Amazon, Old Town Alexandria, the Pentagon and DC....for $850K that you could immediately add massive value to....A RARE FIND indeed.
