First Open House - Saturday OCTOBER 16th from 1:00-3:00 PM. Welcome to Sligo Park Hills, a neighborhood known for its unique cottage homes nestled amongst large old stand trees. From the minute you arrive, this stone and brick Tudor Cottage- built-in 1933, radiates charm and warmth. The generous 9735 square foot lot features climbing roses in front, large wisteria on the patio, and a lush lawn trimmed by flowering trees and bushes. Enter through the windowed foyer, where you'll be captivated by rich architectural details. From the leaded glass windows on either side of the stone fireplace to the fourteen-foot beamed ceiling and warm oak wood floors. An open plan kitchen dining area invites guests to step out through unique Dutch doors onto a secluded stone patio, or to the sunny windowed porch at the rear of the house. Ideal for a work from home option, the main level is rounded out with a generous sunny bedroom -currently used as a handsome home office and adjacent expanded full bath. The second floor offers an inviting owner's bedroom with a gabled wall and two expanded walk-in closets. The spacious third bedroom features a bank of casement windows perfectly placed to catch the afternoon sun. The large full bath with a frosted glass door and upgraded fittings serves these bedrooms. The fully finished lower level features a spacious walk-in pantry with built-in shelves and room for an extra fridge, a large recreation room with views to the garden, full bath, a large laundry - storage room, in/law/au pair/ fourth bedroom, and an adorable garden/tool /bike room. The walk-out lower door is flanked by stone walls and steps that lead to the large, fenced vegetable garden at the rear of the house. Located just minutes from walking and biking paths along Sligo Creek, it is an easy bike ride to the stunning views along Rock Creek bikeways. Just a short stroll away is Takoma Park, where you can enjoy small shops, excellent restaurants, a bustling farmers market, and even a Jazz Festival! Community events abound, such as the Old Town Takoma Fourth of July parade and fireworks, or the annual neighborhood tree lighting and carols (or just enjoy the lights from your kitchen windows). Ideally located, 2 Sussex is also equidistant to bustling downtown Silver Spring and the historic Silver Theatre. A quiet oasis, with easy access to all the culture and events that DC has to offer, just a mile from the district line, with bus and new Purple Line connections to open soon.
