    Description

    A historic opportunity is presented in the form of 18 Sherman Avenue - a Montgomery County designated historic property known as the Douglas House and one of the oldest homes in Takoma Park (tax record incorrect). It is believed to have been part of the original Carroll Manor Estate that was located on nearby Manor Circle and is estimated to date to the mid-19th Century - before Takoma Park City was founded. The historic designation does allow for normal living with few restrictions and also for State tax credits for many types of improvements - for tax credit info see disclosures and here: https://montgomeryplanning.org/planning/historic/tax-credit-program/ . It's a delightful Greek Revival style home with important architectural features including a boxed cornice featuring a frieze with incised brackets and returns on both gable ends. Beneath the current siding is the original narrow wood clapboard. Step into an enchanting living room with pretty wood floors and built-in shelving. Behind it is a cozy study multi-purpose room. If you want a larger space then you may remove the wall between the living room and study for a really big space. A full bedroom and an updated bathroom on the main level are great for guests. To the rear, the roomy kitchen has warm cherry wood cabinets and tons of counter space with a center island. The offset dining room is flooded with light and joy in all seasons. Upstairs is a 2nd full bathroom, laundry room, and a spacious owner bedroom. The 3rd level features another bedroom with storage space at either end that also makes for a great hobby area. If you need storage space the unfinished basement is ideal. The zoned CAC is about 6 years old, while the gas hot water heater is around 4 years. Gas-fired radiator heating is featured and preferred by allergy sufferers as it's a gentle heat. A surprisingly large rear garden gets southern sun and it's a great place for growing plants of all types (1 dead tree is scheduled for removal soon). There's a brick patio for your outdoor furniture and entertaining. The metal and shingle roof is just 4 years old and the older tin portion was repaired at that time. This is a sought-after location on a beautiful block close to all you desire in the City. Walk to the Takoma Food Cooperative, restaurants, City Hall, Schools, Library, and just one mile to the Metro Station! It's hard to find a Takoma Park home with more character and history than this one, yet so comfortable for the easy and modest living we seek.
