This expansive and bright semi-detached home in Petworth is truly ready for you to move right in. The gleaming hardwood floors shine in impeccable condition throughout the main and upper levels. Showcasing 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms, the top-to-bottom renovation in 2016 brought this home up to modern standards, including an open floor plan; powder room on main level; laundry, en-suite primary bath + hall bath on the upper level; and a bedroom & full bath on the lower level. The open flow of the main level is fantastic for entertaining - featuring a large living room space, separate dining area, and spacious kitchen with high-top bar seating for 4. This gorgeous kitchen has white shaker cabinetry, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and an extended bar/storage area along one side. The welcoming landing on the upper level leads you to the primary suite, laundry closet, full bath and two ample-sized bedrooms. The lower level can act as an in-law suite or apartment….or be absorbed into the living space of the home, offering a large rec room, a 4th bedroom, a full bathroom and plenty of storage. Dreaming of a home where being outside still feels like part of your home? This is it! The recently-added Trex deck (permitted and installed 2017) allows an easy flow in and out of the kitchen and also connects to the flexible ground-level space: to be used for entertaining, parking or play! Bonus: plenty of storage under the deck. The peaceful and classic front porch was recently re-built with Trex decking, making it a great place to read a book and enjoy the freshly landscaped front yard. Additional recent updates include new toilets, new lighting, bath and kitchen fixtures. Welcome home to 5415 Illinois Ave NW!
