Built in 1934, the house at 1745 Upshur Street, NW is designed in the Tudor Revival style and has been immaculately renovated by the current owners. Three blocks to the amenities in Rock Creek Park, and only a 10-minute drive to downtown Washington, it is both convenient and pastoral. The current owners undertook a significant restoration of the property that is in keeping with the sensibility of the time in which it was built, while still offering a contemporary lifestyle. The owners replaced all 38 windows, thus improving energy efficiency, in addition to having replaced the roof two years ago.
The main level comprises a living room with wood-burning fireplace, dining room, eat-in kitchen, and powder room. The master bedroom offers a charming ensuite bathroom. The upper floors also have two additional bedrooms and a full bathroom, as well as a finished third floor. Due to the addition of a large skylight, this room can be used as a bedroom, family room, or office. The lower level has a family room with wood-burning fireplace, a bedroom, a bathroom, a laundry room, a sauna, and a considerable amount of storage. The private rear garden was designed with an expansive rear deck, perfect for outdoor entertaining, and also includes a large yard with mature trees and planting. The detached two-car garage is a luxury not usually found anywhere in the city.
