Lovingly Restored Petworth Beauty Between the Circles
This home is a true original. Unlike more common renovations, this home has been respectfully restored. The original floor plan and details have been preserved. All new systems and a more favorable modern configuration have been introduced. New but period-appropriate oak hardwood floors have been installed on the main level. Ceilings are tall with crown molding, recessed LED lights and original or recreated woodwork and transoms throughout. The carrara quartz kitchen has matching backsplash, gas and stainless steel appliances and a breakfast bar. The separate dining area is ample and leads to a rear sunroom ideal for a reading room or home office with an adjacent powder room. The sleeping quarters upstairs have been upgraded to include a large multi-room master suite and bath with a ceramic shower, a renewed hall bath and two ideal front-facing bedrooms. Original pine floors have been refinished upstairs and stained to match. Fully finished basement has a wide open living area, washer/dryer hook-up, quartz wet bar with mini fridge and a full bath. Out back, there is a large dry storage area, access to a charming rear patio. Parking is accessed via a one-car garage with remote controlled door.

Sense of place is strong in Petworth. There are numerous community festivals and events year-round, some celebrating the Jamaican and West Indian heritage of newer arrivals. The Petworth public library and Upshur Street Books are equally revered.
