Bright and airy, this light-filled home combines the space of a townhouse with the low maintenance of a condominium. Located along the wide promenade of 16th Street NW, this eight-unit, stately building was built in the Richardsonian Romanesque style in 1900. Originally a magnificent mansion, the building converted to condominiums around 1979. Unit 4-B has since been renovated to bring the home up to the discerning standards of modern buyers.
The front door opens into a spacious living and dining room combo, complete with wood-burning fireplace. Subtle architectural features visually separate the living area from the dining area, which is large enough to hold either a round table and buffet table, or a larger rectangular dining table. Built-in shelves are found in both the dining and living areas. Just off the dining area is the kitchen, which has been upgraded to include stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and modern cabinetry. Finally, tucked behind the front door to the home is a powder room and coat closet.
Venturing upstairs, a large skylight in the curved stairwell brings natural light flooding into both levels of the home. The master bedroom is spacious, and has plenty of closet space. The second bedroom is perfect for a guest room or office, and also has ample closet space. The master bath has been renovated with beautiful marble tile. Also on the upper level are the stacked washer and dryer, and a linen closet.
Finally, step outside onto your own private deck among the treetops. The deck is perfect for a quiet cup of morning coffee, or an afternoon spent grilling with friends and family. Hardwood floors grace the entire home. A new Ecobee3 smart home thermostat has been installed for those tech-savvy buyers. One deeded parking space is conveniently located behind the building.
