Welcome to 811 Quintana Pl NW, a bright porch-front home in the heart of Brightwood on a peaceful, quiet one-way street lined with trees, with multi-generational neighbors and friends. This stunning detached home features 4.5" hand-crafted Birch floors throughout, recessed lighting, and over-sized windows with custom blinds. The spacious living room flows right into the dining room and kitchen - an entertainer's dream. The modern kitchen is outfitted with stainless steel appliances, gas cooking, shaker cabinets, and cashmere-white granite. Upstairs, you will find not only a gracious owner's suite with an en-suite bath and spacious closets, but also a bright and airy second bedroom with en-suite bathroom and spacious closets. One of the outstanding features is downstairs: a finished, cheerful lower level with high ceilings, a separate eat-in kitchen, living/bedroom space, bathroom, washer/dryer, and private entrance. DCRA has approved it as an accessory apartment. Think au-pair suite, in-law suite, lucrative rental with the potential to earn $1300 a month - limited only by your imagination. Finally, the back deck and coveted parking space complete this Brightwood dream. Enjoy being blocks away from Walmart, shops/restaurants on Georgia Ave, the fantastic Takoma and numerous public transit lines. This is a wonderful, tranquil home, waiting for you!
