For Sale by Owner: An Entertainer’s Delight

For Sale by Owner: An Entertainer’s Delight

Mike and Mindy and their adorable little girl have an amazing Del Ray rowhouse for sale steps away from Mt. Vernon Avenue. It’s a house full of unique add-ons thanks to a well-known Del Ray carpenter who lived there before them.

Walking up to their eye-catching yellow house, you immediately picture yourself lounging on the front porch having lemonade and watching all the happenings of Del Ray.  I even pictured myself reading a book while my boys played safely in the great fenced-in front yard.


I’m a sucker for great lighting and Mike and Mindy must share that love.  They have done a fantastic job updating the light fixtures with unique pieces such as the one that serves as their entryway light.  It complements the great celadon color they used for their light-filled front door.


The main floor of the cozy rowhouse has been completely redone. The hardwood floors gleam when the sun from the large windows hit it.  Walking into a house and being able to view all rooms from the front door is a HUGE plus for me.  Mike and Mindy did a fantastic job creating a great flow.



The kitchen has some great add-ons that I haven’t seen in any other rowhouse in Del Ray. Let’s start with the built-in wine holder above the walkway into the kitchen to the dining room.


The stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops add to the clean and chic look of the kitchen.  The small hook-up ready area for the TV is also a great added touch.  I once again imagine myself being the ultimate super mom, making dinner, and watching my kids play in the living room as I catch up on what’s going on in the world.  (A girl can dream right?)


The kitchen opens up to one of the most entertainment-friendly backyards on the block. The amazing deck offers great conversation areas and there’s still room for green space below!


Moving on to the upstairs, Mike and Mindy have put in another great light fixture.


The bedrooms are bright and cheery.  They did a fantastic job with their daughter’s room choosing paint that is neutral enough for someone who is looking to use that extra room for an office or guest room instead.



Don’t forget about the two generous closets in the master bedroom. For an older house, these closets are huge assets!



And take a look at the original pristine tile work in the bathroom.



Moving down to the basement/office/rec room area, the space is fully renovated with neutral colors on the wall and carpet. it also features built-in shelving.



If you take a peek into the utility/laundry room, you can see the awesome work area that I know my husband would LOVE!


Another great addition is the covered storage area built under the deck.  I decided that I would turn that into a kids playhouse or even better, a flower arboretum of sorts.



With entertainment space galore, high-end features, and a Del Ray address that can’t be beat, this is an incredible house.

You can view more about the house here. I have a feeling this one isn’t going to last too long.
