Letter From The Owner
Dear Home Buyer,
You will love living in this charming brick row house with the slate roof. Shortly after I moved into this house seven years ago I had the walkway and front steps rebuilt with flagstone and brick. This made a huge difference in the look of the front of the house. During the past year I carried the flagstone and brick theme onto the rear patio which made it a truly pleasant place to relax in the evenings and during early morning coffee.
I had never grown flowers before moving here, and this quaint front yard has something blooming in it most of the year. Wait until you see the Japanese anemones that bloom beside the walkway in the summer! And in the late Fall and early Winter the pink camellia bush beside the front gate will be full of blossoms.
I love the basement family room with the wall of bookshelves. It is such a comfortable place to read or watch television. The built-in desk is also useful if you need to spread out your papers when you are working from home. I loved entertaining in the spacious dining room which is large enough to serve dinner for 10.
I replaced the windows which helped lower my utility bills year round. I have used an annual contract to check the heating and air conditioning systems and the plumbing so I know I am passing along a good home.
Del Ray is a great area for walking...on Saturday morning the farmerâ€™s market is always full of your neighbors buying fresh produce. The streets are typically filled with people enjoying a walk or taking their dogs to the dog park a few blocks away. Many of my favorite restaurants are along Mt. Vernon Ave., as well as grocery stores, a drug store, and many other amenities.
