COMING SOON: “Riggs is the new Petworth! Enjoy the city/city life as you stretch across the Maryland border and get the best of both worlds in this semi-detached corner townhome flooded with Southwest light. Renovated in 2011, the wide-open main level has hardwood floors and includes the coveted bath that all buyers desire. 3 bedrooms on the top floor with 1 full bathroom, a study/”bedroom” can be found in the finished basement, along with additional living space and another full bathroom. Since purchase, the current owner has installed an alarm system, rear security doors and replaced the microwave, washing machine and garbage disposal. The interior has been stylishly painted and a new floor has been laid in the basement. The beautiful and spacious exterior has recently been extended and extensively paved with rear parking sufficient for 2-3 cars or a large patio for safe outdoor gatherings and the rear deck has been extended. A new stone walkway was installed in the front and a new veranda roof with ceiling fan. You are all set for this spring and summer to safely entertain large groups. Nearby amenities include the Fort Totten subway (<1 mile), bus stops nearby, a giant supermarket a few blocks away, Walmart and many more development along the way. The house is also very convenient to Silver Spring, Takoma Park and the ring road. This home is exceptional! You don't want to miss that!”
