Stunning West Mount Airy end of row townhome on a tree-lined street only a short walk to the train station. Meticulously restored to preserve the charm and classic architecture of years past and updated to provide contemporary amenities. The kitchen has been totally renovated with modern style and features 42~ white cabinetry, subway tile backsplash, grey quartz countertops, a breakfast bar with pendant lights open to the dining room, gas cooking, under cabinet lighting, a built-in wine cabinet, corner lazy susan, recessed lights, stainless steel appliances, and a walk-in pantry with glass folding doors. For comfort in the summer months, there are 4 zones of split system air conditioning, which is also a heat pump, for maximum energy efficiency. The beautifully refinished satin dark oak hardwood flooring is found throughout much of the first and second floor. The first floor is flooded with natural light and features a large formal living room with a wood burning fireplace with an insert and decorative ornate mantle, and a spacious dining room with two closets and double glass doors that lead to the composite back deck. You will enter the home into a lovely enclosed sun porch with exposed ribbon pointed stone and glass doors with side transom windows that lead into the living room. Upstairs you will find a very comfortable hall layout with 2 walk-in storage closets, one with beadboard walls, perfect for winter storage. The bathroom was recently remodeled with an oversized vanity, wainscotting and classic diagonal checkerboard black and white tile. The master bedroom is large enough to accommodate your king-sized bed and has a walk-in closet. Two additional spacious bedrooms complete the second floor. The decor and color selections are straight out of a design magazine and there are many replacement windows throughout the home. There is a second gas-fired hot water radiator heating system for maximum comfort in the cold winter months. In the walkout basement, there is plenty of storage and an unfinished front room which would be an ideal climate for your wine storage. The toilet in the basement is ready to be converted into a half bathroom. Your attached 1 car garage has a door into the basement for convenience when loading in your groceries or other items, and there is a second off-street parking space in the rear. The fully white picket fenced-in front yard with a slate walkway and Magnolia Tree is an excellent place to spend your spring and summer evenings outdoors. Perfectly located in the heart of West Mount Airy near the Carpenter Train Station and a quick walk to Germantown Pike. This is the home you have been waiting for!
