Created by Brush Arbor Home Construction’s masterful collaboration of architects, interior designers, and landscape architects, this total renovation of one of Frederick Douglass’ former residences is a four-level Second Empire-style elevator townhouse of impeccable elegance and exceptional scale. Providing bespoke tranquility in a coveted location just a couple blocks from the Supreme Court, Capitol and Senate Buildings, no detail has been overlooked in the custom renovation of this architectural gem. Here, luxury and sophistication clearly meet modern day amenities and lifestyle needs.
A spectacular open floor plan integrates 10 foot ceilings, custom interior and exterior millwork, hand-milled white oak floors, Jeld Wen windows and doors, designer bespoke finishes such as lighting by Visual Comfort and fixtures by Kallista and Waterworks; all provide breadth and airiness on the main level. The front foyer’s brick accent wall offsets the generous living room with fireplace and classic bay window, both complemented by the highest quality fixtures and finishes. There is a seamless flow from indoors to outdoors from a custom 15-foot wall of glass windows and doors to the private terrace, capturing an abundance of natural light adjacent to the chef’s kitchen with its rigorously curated appliance package and breakfast room. The second level features a large landing and includes a well-appointed primary suite with two walk-in-closets, and spa-inspired bathroom. All five secondary bedrooms, spread across three levels with elevator access echo the primary’s luxury finishes and closet or dressing room space.
The penthouse level offers a sublime north-facing city view from the relaxing vantage point of a family room with wet bar. The exceptionally crafted lower level includes an exercise room, second laundry room, as well as a secondary bedroom on this level. Access to the garden from the lower level thereby provides excellent flexibility for au-pair or in-law living configurations. The exterior has been planned with the utmost discernment, executed to provide a private backyard retreat which features a stone patio, shaded by strategically chosen, well-placed greenery, and a two-car garage. The residence also conveys with two additional one-car garages across from the alley, just kitty-corner to the NW rear corner of the property.
