Beautifully maintained and thoughtfully reinterpreted by the current owner, this residence offers almost 4,000 square feet of finished living space on four floors. All levels were designed and built as living space in 1952, later expanded in 1986, and much of the interior has been recently renovated. The house offers the desirability of an open floor plan, plentiful natural light, picture windows, and walk-in closets in all bedrooms.
Found on the first floor is an eat-in kitchen with views of the rear wooded garden below, a large separate laundry and mudroom, and a sitting room with fireplace. Access from the one-car garage is through the screened porch, which is a pleasant spot in any season of the year. The living room and dining room are all supplied with a generous amount of natural light, owing to the house’s north-south axis. This floor also offers a library with built-in bookcases and an en suite bathroom.
The second floor offers a large master suite with a recently renovated bathroom. Skylights help to illuminate the master bathroom that comprises approximately 150 square feet and includes a soaking tub and separate dressing room. There is a balcony off the second bedroom, an equally spacious third bedroom, and a renovated hall bathroom. The fourth floor can be used as an additional bedroom, office, or other purpose given its spacious, open plan and plentiful storage space.
The basement offers 13-foot ceilings and can accommodate large-scale entertaining; it still maintains its original wet bar and fireplace. Outfitted with knotty-pine paneling, still in impeccable condition, this second living room opens out to an outdoor living area with fireplace that is shaded by a canopy of trees in summer. This level also provides a separate utility room, office, and powder room. This residence is located on a beautifully wooded lot in a quiet corner of the neighborhood with easy access to Rock Creek Parkway, close to restaurants and retail establishments, and nightlife in Petworth.
Plans and recent estimates for certain upgrades and improvements have been developed and are available upon request. We welcome the visit of your architect, decorator, and other design professionals.
