5400 CATHEDRAL AVE NW


WASHINGTON, DC

Offered At $3,549,000

Nestled in the heart of DC’s sought-after Palisades, this new home plays to the riverfront neighborhood’s historic architecture, but with a modern open-plan layout, smart-phone ready security and sound systems, and highly-efficient, eco-friendly construction. It’s located on a private side street off Cathedral Avenue—a two-block radius from the Capital Crescent Trail, local parks and the shops and restaurants of MacArthur Boulevard. The 8-foot-2-inch mahogany front door opens into a wide gallery that flows into the central dining room, which asserts itself with an overscaled, bubbly chandelier. That prominent fixture, like all the home’s statement lighting conveys with the house. More luxe details abound such as the private elevator; leather wall panels and fretted cabinets in the family room; brushed-brass hardware on custom cabinetry in the kitchen; and tall windows throughout the main level. The owner’s suite, meanwhile, is a true retreat with its own library, dressing room and marble-clad bath with a tub that looks over the treetops. The home’s crisply tailored landscape includes an expansive stone patio and fire pit that make entertaining easy. And there’s plenty of room for guests, with two apartment-sized bedroom suites on the top floor. For a tight-knit, Mayberry-like neighborhood where homeowners rarely move, this property offers a singular opportunity.
