$450,000 3012 LAKE AVENUE, CHEVERLY, MD 20785
Charm, Character, Craftsmanship, Community...and Land come together in this 2BR, 1BA renovated, detached Colonial on 3 levels with garage & a gigantic, double lot. The property was completely renovated ten years ago so all the systems are ten years old or younger including the plumbing, HVAC, insulation, electric, and roof. As you enter the main level from the fully finished & enclosed former porch-area, you are greeted by a wall of windows and a great, versatile space that serves as the Dining Area or also can be an Office or Den. The Living Room is just off the entryway and is separated by a half-wall to the prep Kitchen. Speaking of Kitchens, this large, 2-Room Kitchen will not disappoint. The Kitchen was completely redesigned and built in 2017. The original dining room was converted to a prep area with ample cabinet, storage & countertop space that serve wonderfully for cooking, baking, and entertaining. The second room of the kitchen includes more counter and cabinet space as well as cooking and washing areas. The whole main level has Vermont slate tile flooring. Upstairs boasts 2 large Bedrooms and a renovated full Bathroom. The second bedroom is currently used as a Den and Office. Both Bedrooms have quality, custom built-in bookshelves and drawers. There is luxury vinyl flooring over the existing oak floors. The basement is unfinished and includes space for storage, laundry area, mechanical area and access to the attached Garage. The Garage can be accessed from the basement or from the rear exterior garage door in the back of house. If you want some land and outdoor space, welcome home. This house is on two lots that total about 18,500 square feet. The front yard is nicely landscaped and hardscaped with a brick patio. The side driveway allows for off-street parking and access to the garage and backyard also with a patio area. The double lot is deep and wide - extending substantially from the right side of the house as well. Located just off Forest, the house is walkable to neighborhood parks, Cheverly Pool & Racquet Club, and Metro as well as EZ-access in/out of Cheverly to downtown DC, Capitol Hill, UMD, Hyattsville Arts District, Dakota Crossing retail & 495/50/295/BW Parkway.
