Welcome to 1004 Sigsbee, a classic Colonial tucked away on a quiet one-way block in beautiful Brookland. This rare double-lot property boasts endless possibilities. In addition to the home itself, the sale includes the large adjacent lot, which could provide other opportunities. While it currently provides a massive and lush yard, it also offers potential opportunities for a separate structure, home addition, pool, or just an amazing gift to your four-legged friend who will have space to run to their heart's content.
The house, however, is the heart and true centerpiece of the sale. This standalone three-bedroom and two-bath home has an efficient layout with abundant light and natural flow. From the moment you walk in the door, you're immediately entrenched in classic details including refinished hardwood floors, a wood-burning fireplace, and an elegant staircase with its original banister. The kitchen features butcher block countertops, stainless steel appliances, and a beautiful subway tile backsplash. Upstairs, there are three good-sized rooms and a stunningly renovated bathroom with a dual vanity and glass shower enclosure. The basement is the perfect flex space. Whether you need it for another entertaining area, sleeping area, home gym, or office, the space has high ceilings, a rear egress, a full bath, and a separate utility room with plenty of storage. Additional storage and a workbench can be found in the outdoor shed. Recent updates to the property include a newer roof (2016), updated electrical panel (2017), new HVAC (2017), new water heater (2022), new patio and wrap-around deck (2021), permeable paver parking pad (2021), and wooden fence (2021) fully enclosing the two lots.
This location in Brookland can’t be beat. In addition to being steps from Turkey Thicket Recreation Center and its year-round pool, playground, tennis courts, and track, some of the best eats in DC are within walking distance. Some personal favorites include Brookland's Finest, Primrose, Menomale, Bookland Pint, Yes! Organic Market, and so many more. This home features off-street parking, but there's always more room for friends to park on the street. Need to venture out to the rest of DC? It's about a ten-minute walk to the Brookland metro station and steps from a number of crosstown buses.
Note: Historical and property data in this listing reflect only one of the two lots, 3889 0037. Current owners acquired the adjacent lot (3889 0038), nearly doubling the size of the combined property, and are selling them together.
