About The Property
210 Laverne Avenue
A BREATH OF FRESH AIR! Welcome to 210 Laverne Avenue, a classic American Foursquare (“Prairie Box”) owned by a founding member of the Del Ray Artisans. Built near the turn of the century, this “Sears catalog” home was built in a style inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright’s “Prairie Architecture”.
Nestled in ultra-convenient and popular Del Ray, this alluring arts and crafts residence illustrates how important art and personal styling is to brighten everyday life. The pristine white picket fence and calming “French” yellow facade will melt the stress of the day away. The gracious front porch is draped in whimsical wisteria and is the perfect place to relax with a morning cup of coffee or evening glass of wine.
It is fitting that you enter this home through a beautiful purple door, as the color represents creativity and peace, both of which describe this home perfectly. You will immediately fall in love with beautiful original hardwood floors, vintage hardware, and radiators with unique detailing, and bright wavy pane windows that fill rooms with natural light. The details are absolutely stunning!
The main level layout is flexible and open. A living room with wood burning fireplace and brick hearth are separated by fabulous, original oversized pocket doors from the dining space. Through a two way swinging door in the dining room, easily flow into the kitchen which features ample storage, stainless appliances, and a breakfast bar ideal for quick meals. Completing this level is a full bath with stunning original 1911 door knob and a mudroom.
Four bedrooms are found on the first upper level, each with surprisingly gracious closet space. A full bath with gorgeous clawfoot tub and wood-paneled walls completes the floor. Another fun feature of this home is the fully finished attic accessed through the master bedroom. Extremely versatile with a full bathroom, this space would be a wonderful “secret hideout”, office, dressing area, additional bedroom space – the list goes on! The unfinished lower level is a blank canvas and offers a wide range of options.
Outdoor space comparable to what 210 Laverne Avenue offers is hard to come by in Del Ray! Fully fenced with a large flat yard, move in just before the summer months and start planning all your barbeques, gardens and offer your friends a space to stretch their legs.
The new metro station in the works will be only 4 blocks away once complete in Potomac Yard. Washington, DC and National Airport is 10 minutes away. Walk to 4 different grocery stores in minutes. Plus, the shops and restaurants on The Avenue are at your fingertips! 210 Laverne is truly a special home in a fantastic location.
