    Description

    Welcome home to this 1922 Minter Ready to Build Home. Minter Homes were a local (Huntington WV) rival to the Sears Kit Homes and build hundreds of pre-fabricated homes perfect for government housing during World War I. 6815 Laurel Ave looks to be a version of the 8-room Executive+GGs Residence, adjusted for the urban lot sizes of the city. First owned by the Chief Accountant for the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, this homes original layout, flooring, and woodwork have been lovingly maintained for the past 99 years and are ready for a new owner to celebrate its centennial year! While this home has a rich history that makes it a gem of Takoma DC, we note that the home is outside of the purview of the Takoma Historic District. The curb appeal is fantastic with the large front porch spanning the front of the home and beautiful landscaping. Inside, you will love the finishes and character featuring gorgeous hardwood floors throughout the first and second floors, radiator heat, and fantastic natural light streaming through the windows. At the front door, you+GGll find original stained glass transom windows, following by a beautiful original coat rack and mirror curated by the owners to perfectly tuck between the wall and radiators. The bright and spacious living room boasts a brick fireplace and mantel with built in bookshelves. The dining room will be the perfect place to entertain your large thanksgiving meal for you and your extended family. The antique light fixture and medallion bring the perfect touch of character and elegance to the room. The generously sized kitchen has updated stainless steel appliances, new tile flooring, and an enviously large pantry leading to a bucolic back yard deck, lovingly landscaped and maintained by the current owners. On the second floor, you will find four bedrooms and a full bathroom featuring an updated vanity with the original (refinished) claw foot tub. The primary bedroom features a large closed off sleeping porch turned dressing room that would be the perfect spot for your en suite bath. All bedrooms are generously sized, with great space for beds and/or home offices, as is your preference. Although they don+GGt convey, it+GGs worth checking out the current owner+GGs office bookshelf curated with books from almost all US Presidents. On the lower level you will find a large finished room that can be used as a great TV room, rumpus room or even guest quarters, with another full bathroom. You+GGll also find a large storage area, laundry area, and a brand new hot water heater! As if all this wasn't enough, this stunning home is just 3 blocks from the Takoma Metro Station; one block downtown Takoma, including Takoma Bev Co, Kin Da, Republic, and this agent+GGs favorite gift shop, Tabletop! The farmers market meets year round just a block away, so you+GGll never be far from locally crafted foods and wares!
