Live, work and play in this expansive and intimate lofted 1-bedroom and den home in the heart of Hyattsville’s vibrant Arts District. Originally a firehouse, this unique building was converted to the Firehouse Lofts Condominium in 2012. Architecturally unique, this unit features soaring ceilings, oversized windows and skylights, exposed brick walls, and an iron spiral staircase to the second level sleeping and work spaces. When you enter the home, you are greeted by light that pours in from the wall of east-facing windows and from two skylights overhead. The unit boasts almost 1,200 square feet of flexible living space and the first floor offers ample room for designated living and dining areas. The kitchen is tastefully modern with a gray one-inch square tiled backsplash, granite countertops, and stainless appliances. A window adjacent to the kitchen helps the kitchen feel warm and intimate, while connected to the expansive main level living area. There is a convenient half bath and closet for storage next to the kitchen on this first level. Medium brown bamboo floors are warm and beautifully cared for throughout the home. Upstairs, the home is divided into three intimate spaces, each overlooking the living and dining areas below. The spiral staircase lands in the den area. Here, wall-to-wall closets provide ample storage. To the right of the stair, a nook elevated above the rest of the home offers the perfect spot to slip away. The master bedroom is tucked privately along the east wall with its own window. Smartly arranged, the full bath upstairs may be accessed by either the master bedroom or the den, allowing for many different uses of the space. This home comes with assigned garage parking. There is a common “secret garden” at the interior of the building where residents are invited to be outside and enjoy the day with a blanket and a book in privacy from the street. The area offers multiple commuting options- you can travel by car, train, bus, or bicycle. Hyattsville is a short drive into D.C. and you can take advantage of the West Hyattsville and PG Plaza Metro Stations, the MARC train at Riverdale, the much-anticipated Purple Line, and the bus lines along Baltimore Ave./Rhode Island Ave. Within a block is the mixed use walking and biking Trolley Trail which connects you to Riverdale and College Park. The Northwest Branch runs two blocks south of this home and connects to the Anacostia Tributary Trail Network. Cycle along the Anacostia River for work, for pleasure, or to see a ball game at Nationals Park. If your wheels need inflating, the team at Arrow Bicycle is there to keep you rolling. Vigilante Coffee, Hyattsville’s home-grown, award-wining roastery is your neighbor and a community gathering space. If food and spirits are your thing, you’re in luck – Franklin’s Brewery (and toy store!) is one block away. Pick up a pizza and a growler or bottle of small batch rye. Pizzeria Paradiso, Streetcar 82 Brewery, Sangfroid Distilling, and Busboys and Poets all share the neighborhood. Hyattsville is home to a vibrant arts scene, and you can live right in the middle of it all in this unique home.
