Tucked in a row, but its refined aesthetic makes it stand out. 518 Varnum is woven into the fabric of the Petworth neighborhood and more specifically, one of the most sought-after blocks in the area. With a sprawling lot and expansive layout, the opportunities are endless. Come with your ideas on how to make this beauty your own. But before you do, pause to take in the warmth and character that have stood the test of time since 1920. As you approach the home, the polished exterior quickly gives way to the grandeur of the original two-level stair. The rich stained wood trim perfectly frames your entry into the main living room and adjacent dining room which is flanked by the kitchen. But it's the light from the enclosed sunroom that draws you in. From there, peer into the vast backyard equipped with a recessed flagstone patio and room to grow as evidenced by the lush greenery (and ripening blueberry bush). On the second level, turn left to view two of four bedrooms which are connected by a bonus room. Use this space as a dressing room or an office. Head straight for a view of the full bath and two additional bedrooms beyond. The lowest level is tidy with new epoxy flooring and paint, has the second full bath and features a brand-new water heater. This home is equipped with a two zone AC system, one in the attic servicing the second floor and one in basement which services the main and lower levels (both units were installed in 2021). Immerse yourself in the nearby local favorites such as Lulabelle's, Little Food Studio, Timber Pizza, daycares, schools, playgrounds, the Petworth library and a buzzing weekend farmer's market. Draft your plans for how you'll leave your mark and make this home your own, but when you do, be sure to pay homage to the life this beautiful home has lived over the last 100 years before you!
