This beautiful, stand-alone, four-story brick Colonial is an entertainer’s dream home. The grand early 20th Century home located on DC’s Gold Coasts unfolds across a 5,721 square foot lot and features five bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, a large open space for entertaining and an addition in the back. Built in 1921, the property revels in architectural charm including coffered ceilings, crown molding, arched entryways, French doors and gorgeous hardwood floors.
The main entrance opens to a large foyer flanked on either side by stately parlor rooms, each with its own fireplace. Just beyond the front parlor room and also accessed from the home’s main hallway is the grand dining room with coffered ceiling. The dining room connects to the home’s enclosed porch and is ideally located opposite the large separate kitchen. This main level also features a powder room tucked away off the main hallway.
The second level hosts four brightly-lit bedrooms including the master bedroom with ensuite bath. Consider combining the master bedroom and southeast bedroom to create a large master suite spanning the depth of the house. The two other generously proportioned bedrooms on the north side of the home share a jack-n-jill bathroom. A roomy second floor porch spans the back of the second floor overlooking the large backyard and is accessed from the home’s rear bedrooms.
The third floor of this lovely home features two additional bedrooms, a full bath, and two large storage rooms while the lower level houses the home’s mechanicals and offers an abundance of space to expand the home’s living area. Consider adding a family room, workshop, an accessory apartment or all the above!
In addition to an amazing home, the property’s level and lage lot offers countless potential for creating spectacular patios and gardens to entertain colleagues, family, and friends! Also unique to this home, enjoy a driveway from 16th Street (very rare) and a large garage accessed from the alley.
The home’s amazing Gold Coast location and prominent 16th Street address not only offers ease of commuting downtown but also the luxury of being situated alongside Rock Creek Park. Enjoy countless miles of trails for hiking, biking, and walking. Also, enjoy Carter Baron’s tennis courts, open fields, and running/walking track.
