610 FARRAGUT ST NW

WASHINGTON | DC

SOLD

Welcome home to 610 Farragut St NW in the heart of one of the best blocks in all of Petworth. This classically appointed home is the perfect combination of old-school touches like hardwood floors, stunning banisters, transoms above the bedroom doors, trim around doors/windows, and modern touches like a fully upgraded kitchen with marble counters, newer stainless steel JennAir appliances, wainscoting, decorator light fixtures & tastefully updated bathrooms (one with a skylight). You'll get plenty of space and privacy with the three bedrooms and two full baths upstairs, and the playroom/flexible space in the basement provides countless opportunities. And let's not forget the current owners' favorite feature - the plentiful outdoor space. Whether it's sitting on the front porch saying hello to your friendly neighbors or relaxing in the deep deep lot in the backyard, you'll be able to enjoy some quiet time or invite all of your friends over for a big backyard cookout. To top it all off, there is a garage currently used for storage, but which could easily be an additional space to park, do projects, have a gym, or be used for any other creative endeavors. Some favorite local spots include Timber Pizza, Honeymoon Chicken, Magpie and the Tiger & Liberty Tavern. Want to explore the rest of DC? The metro is only about a mile away and there are ample buses around too.

One of Petworth’s best-known claims to fame is President Lincoln’s Cottage, but while the rest of the neighborhood might not be familiar to visitors yet, residents recognize its unique flair and offerings. From neighborhood gatherings to unique pop-up restaurants and independent shops, Petworth has something special for all visitors. Dig deeper and discover both one-time and all-the-time activities to enjoy in this neighborhood throughout the year. Petworth is known for its community events. Held in early summer, Celebrate Petworth is an annual event anchored around art, music, food, healthy living and family. You’ll want to visit the festival’s Arts Zone, featuring local arts vendors, clothing boutiques, live muralists and performance artists. Little ones will love the Kids Zone, which includes crafts, a puppet theater and storytime. The Petworth Jazz Project is a free music series held in Petworth Park at 8th and Taylor Streets from May through September. Past performers include Kris Funn, Herb Scott and Akua Allrich. Have an interest in arts and crafts? Petworth’s Upshur Street Handmade Art & Craft Fair is an annual event held each December featuring vendors, sponsors, performers, shoppers, entertainers and local businesses who crowd the sidewalks for a fun neighborhood celebration.


Home cooks will want to visit The Petworth Community Market, a weekly farmers’ market held on Saturdays from May through November. The market features produce, prepared food and local vendors such as Sweet Crimes, Panorama Bakery and Harrar Coffee & Roastery. The market also hosts performances by musicians and artists, as well as chefs who put together cooking demonstrations. Exploring the neighborhood’s restaurant scene is also a must – Petworth is home to not one, but two, of Bon Appétit’s best new restaurants in America for 2017. Himitsu, the no reservations, quaint 24-seat restaurant inhabiting the Upshur strip, delivers on what first-time restaurateurs Kevin Tien and Carlie Steiner call “New Japanese.” And just across the street is Timber Pizza Co., a former food truck turned brick-and-mortar that’s been wowing pizza lovers in a cool, industrial-chic space. Bookworms will love Upshur Street Books. Discover quirky picture books, books about DC’s past and present, work from local authors (politicians included), essay collections, novels, puzzles and much more. If you like enjoying a cocktail while reading, head to the Petworth Citizen & Reading Room. The classy spot is a neighborhood literary bar and restaurant with friendly service, tasty food and delicious drinks.
