This rarely available Lafayette model is the most spacious townhome you can buy in the sought-after Villages at Dakota Crossing. Created for the discerning buyer who wants a beautiful home that is functional and well-designed, the Lafayette lives like a single family detached home due to its spacious open layout on the main level. The width of this home you just won’t find in other DC townhomes. Featuring a gorgeous fully renovated kitchen and updated bathrooms, beautiful wooden stairs that run front and back providing easy access to a first-level powder room and a two car garage. There’s also an area in the garage for exercise equipment or hobby area plus an expansive entry level recreation room that can be used as flexible space for entertainment or easily convert it to a first level guest bedroom or in-law suite by adding french doors. While every corner of this home has a story to tell, the 2nd level is a chapter of it's own, with wide-plank hardwood floors, built in surround sound, and an enormous open floor plan with multiple sitting and dining areas that open to a large deck. You'll love preparing meals in your open kitchen which is perfect for entertaining with ample cabinet space, a large island, double ovens and a built-in gas stove across from a cozy seating area with built ins. Head upstairs to the bedroom level to relax in the oversized owner's suite with a lounge area flanked by stately columns to read or watch tv. Additional features include two large walk-in closets and a spa-like bath with a walk-in shower, separate soaking tub, and dual vanities. Two additional bedrooms, a laundry room and a full bathroom complete this level. Fort Lincoln's community pool, playground, recreation center, tennis courts, basketball courts and baseball field are a short stroll away. The park and recreation center are slated to undergo a massive modernization. The big-box stores at Shops at Dakota Crossing provide the convenience you crave (Lowe's, Costco, Starbuck's, PetSmart and much more) while the neighborhood is also well-served by the B8 and H6 buses to the nearby Rhode Island and Brookland Red Line Metro stations respectively. Hop onto route 50 or New York Ave for easy access to downtown, Ivy City, Union Market, or H Street Corridor. Enjoy evenings at nearby DC Brau Brewery, Era Wine Bar and Pennyroyal Station (a 2022 RAMMY Finalist in the "Favorite Gathering Place" category). If you're seeking a beautiful home with a lifestyle to match, look no further!
