Built originally by a German baker (who lived next door at 906 South Carolina), for his son and his family, and subsequently home to Congressman Charlie Wilson (of Charlie Wilson's War), 908 South Carolina was fully renovated and expanded in 2014 to a beautiful 4bdr/3.5ba home. This lovely home is in bounds for Peabody Elementary, and the Capitol Hill Cluster. Stepping into this well-appointed home, you'll find a spacious living and dining room that flow into a dramatically expanded and newly updated chef's kitchen. The chef's kitchen has just undergone a $150k renovation. Updates include Brazilian marble countertops, new tile backsplash, new Sub Zero refrigerator, Wolf microwave, a Wolf plumbed steam oven, Bosch dishwasher and custom cabinetry, providing even more storage options. This wonderful space is completed with an exposed brick wall and main floor powder room. The wood columns and trim, all original to the house, are mirror images of its next-door relation. The main level leads out to a beautifully redesigned back patio, complete with Edison lights, shade sail and gas fireplace for extending those spring and fall evenings. The open flow of the main level lends to flexible entertaining while still maintaining spaces. Heading upstairs you'll find a large primary bedroom with lofted ceilings and en-suite bathroom with separate bathtub and shower, gas-burning fireplace as well as substantial attic storage. Two more bedrooms, both with ample closet space, a second full bath and bedroom-level washer and dryer complete the upper level. The top floor also enjoys expansive light from south facing primary bedroom windows and a larger-than-life hallway skylight. In the lower level recreation room, you'll find an in-law suite, with a full bathroom, living area with wet bar, refrigerator and wood burning fireplace for cozy evenings watching a movie with popcorn. The lower level is completed by a workroom/bike storage space. Every effort has gone into combining some of the great existing character but with modern amenities including full ethernet wiring and basement network box, built-in basement surround sound (which conveys), efficient and updated systems, including energy efficient windows and a brand new HVAC system, and general space and layout improvements, including copious amounts of storage. Enjoy the updated front yard and connect with your neighbors, curl up with a good book in the living room and watch the family chef work on a meal with a glass of wine in hand, or retreat to the backyard under the lights after a dinner party. All are excellent ways to enjoy this thoughtful space while knowing you're only minutes from neighborhood favorites like Eastern Market, Trader Joe's, Rose's Luxury, Pineapple and Pearls, and Beuchert's Saloon. Also within minutes is Eastern Market Metro, Folger Shakespeare Library, Orange Theory and Sport and Health. You'll love calling this special place home!
