In a home that clocks in at just under 1,000 square feet, it's important to use every inch wisely. Clever use of space is what this sweet little townhouse is all about, starting with the small but super-practical addition creating an entryway foyer. This space creates a spot to get in out of the rain and take off your coat. In its cleverness, this pint-sized addition also includes a full-sized stackable washer and dryer. That way, they're not taking up valuable kitchen or closet space in the house! (Do you love it already?) Inside the house, the galley kitchen includes new butcherblock countertops and a fresh, light color palette. The living/dining room has plenty of room for dining and living room furniture, and its openness invites circulation and conversation with your family and friends. The classic 1940s hardwood floors are fabulous, of course--can't get these at Home Depot. Upstairs, the tilework in the bathroom adds warmth. And--this is interesting--one wall in what had been a very small third bedroom has been bumped out to make it bigger. This means one larger bedroom upstairs, and two smaller, but not tiny, bedrooms. How clever is that? Outside there are some smart details too. Most of the front yard has been made into a terrific little patio, perfect for alfresco dining, lounging, and visiting with neighbors. The back yard is nice and level, and includes a big, sturdy raised bed for veggies or flowers. The home is located in a NON-SMOKING ROW! It's a great court on the north end of town, a block away from the elementary school and across the street from a big park and playground that overlooks the Beltsville Agricultural Research Center. All this for $150,000? Crazy. IMPORTANT NOTE: co-op fee covers maintenance and all property taxes!
