You are steps from Sligo Creek Park with nature at your doorstep and miles of trails that connect to the Washington DC Bicycle Beltway! Walk to the bus on New Hampshire Avenue that takes you to DC Metro in one direction and White Oak FDA in the other. Stroll to local restaurants up the hill and the future Purple Line Station. Hop in your car to Historic Takoma restaurants. There are many grocery stores a short drive away along with shopping malls. UMD is close by, along with the Beltway and I-95. It's a short commute to all points in downtown Washington D.C. also. Parking is easy here too! The sellers are the 2nd owners since the house was built in 1940, and the care for the home can be seen in every nook and cranny! A real jewel, not to be missed!
