If the last Ebby Halliday Realtors listing on Merrimac Avenue that we featured didn't tick all the boxes on your wish list, then perhaps this five-bedroom, three-bathroom Tudor just down the street will.
Built in 1926, 5307 Merrimac Ave. retains all the charm of its original era but has appealing modern touches. Think expansive closets and storage options, Pella windows, and recessed lighting to complement the gleaming hardwood floors. Or in the kitchen, charming black and white diamond-patterned floors balance out the new stainless steel appliances, which include double ovens.
At a roomy 3,049 square feet, with three of the bedrooms and two baths downstairs, there's room enough for a large family to spread out.
And if you want to spread toward the backyard, all the better. The elevated lot is dotted with massive trees and professional landscaping, with a privacy fence and power gate upping the security. Synthetic turf grass turns the yard into a low-maintenance oasis, which you can enjoy from both the covered and uncovered portions of the flagstone patio.
It's hard to beat the M Streets location — Knox-Henderson and Greenville Avenue, with their popular restaurants and bars, are each close by, and Glencoe Park is only a short distance north.
Ebby Halliday's Mike Bates has the listing, which is priced at $879,500.
