Be the ENVY of all! 1211 Independence Avenue is THAT gorgeous home where everyone wants to gather, party and call his/her OWN! This wide 3 story brick Victorian was completely renovated and transformed into a marvelous blend of historic elegance and today's CONTEMPORARY PIZZAZZ! Tall ceilings! Magnificently recently restored wood floors, original curved plaster walls ++ an open custom-designed gourmet kitchen with SS appliances and beautiful soapstone counters including a huge entertaining island and seating area...which flows into the expansive living room/family room/great room with fireplace flooded with south facing sunlight creating a WOW factor all by itself. BUT floor to ceiling glass doors open to a beautifully landscaped patio with GARAGE PARKING atop which rests the piece de la resistance---the most fun custom designed outdoor seating and entertaining area you have yet to see! So many WOW factors designed for today's more casual lifestyle. On those occasions requiring formal, the front room serves as a formal dining room. Upstairs 3 of the are sumptuous in size...the 4th/5th are flexible by design...a child's room next to an infant's room? a second floor family/den area and home office...multiple possibilities. The basement is unfinished and provides even more storage options or is perfect as a playroom or developed into more living space. This home is very special, enjoys all of the bells and whistles as well as that enviable Capitol Hill location steps to EVERYTHING...the Metro, Lincoln Park, Eastern Market, Barracks Row and of course the US Congress.
