What an adorable 1949 all brick rambler that's gently cared for and stylishly updated by the same owner for over 40 years! It's a must-see and not just for the house but the location - a 6-minute stroll from Whole Foods, Gold's Gym, and the Riverdale Park Station shopping center; yet tucked away on a quiet street and separated by a park opposite (owner by Maryland Parks and Planning) that offers nature before you instead of a parking lot! The Italian metal front door is a stunner - step inside and see a traditional layout with an open plan dining area, beautiful refinished oak hardwood floors, and updated kitchen The kitchen remodeled 10 years ago, has "Icestone" brand recycled glass countertops and "Elmwood" kitchen cabinets from Ontario. A gas stove is a feature along with stainless appliances. There are 4 modern ceiling fans including "The Wilde" brand over the dining area. The living room offers a convenient gas fireplace and mantel and big thermal south-facing picture windows! An updated hall bathroom sports custom mosaic tile and a Toto toilet along with lots of built-in storage. 3 proper bedrooms with closets are here in excellent condition with pretty wood floors. If you desire more space the basement level is huge and fully waterproofed with a french drain system and a sump pump with a battery backup for power failures. It's ready for finishing with two large double-pane egress windows suited to make any room added such as a bedroom meet escape requirements under code. The basement ceiling height is 7 feet 2 inches and where the I-beam passes in the middle it is 6 feet 6 inches. There's also a 2nd Fireplace here (never used) that could be the focal point of a Recreation Room there. A laundry area that can be enclosed along with a utility area rounds out the basement and plenty of room for a 2nd bathroom here close by the existing sewer stack! Off-street parking is featured and a nice flat front and back yard makes mowing so much easier. High-efficiency forced air gas heating helps keep the utility cost lower, along with Central Air Conditioning. Gas hot water too! The roof is approximately 10 years old as are the furnace and CAC. It's just a mile walk from College Park Metro Station and a 6-minute drive. Prince George's Plaza Metro is just 4 minutes by car too. (per Mapquest) You are in the City of College Park anchored by the University of Maryland (a short walk away) and with easy access to downtown Washington, D.C. either by car or Metrorail. It's a short commute to I-95, I-295/Baltimore Washington Parkway, the Beltway, and Route 50. The City of College Park is offering a University Partnership home buyer program with $15,000 in funds with zero interest and a ten-year forgivable loan for employees of the University of Maryland, College Park, or full-time employees of the City of College Park. Subject to terms and conditions. For nature lovers, bike enthusiasts, and people who like to walk there is easy access to the nearby Paint Branch Trail that follows the river for miles in both directions. What a special home seeking an owner who has cared as much and it will reward you with years of pleasure here! Not to be missed!
