4218 Blagden Ave NW is an exceptional Mid-Century Modern showpiece that is perfectly situated inside the serene setting of Rock Creek Park. Down a private, dead-end street, this incredible home backs to parkland and is a quiet retreat that is hidden from the city bustle while still being just minutes to popular DC landmarks, shops, restaurants, and schools. Originally a 1968 Split-Level home with a traditional floor plan and only one window that faced Rock Creek Park, HxH Architects Pllc brought a stunning vision and expert design to completely transform this residence.
Open and inviting, the Main Level has been completely repositioned for contemporary living. An airy space with large windows and parkland views, the original wood ceiling trusses were preserved and reclaimed, adding wonderful ceiling height and sight lines that enhance the views of the surrounding woodland. The flexible living space encompasses the Living Room, Dining Room, and Gourmet Kitchen. The kitchen cabinets are rift cut white oak and select appliances are panelized and concealed for a more seamless and modern look. Large French doors give access to the Ipe landing and a welcoming Patio space.
There are 3 Bedrooms and 2 Full Baths on the Main Level, including a peaceful Primary Bedroom with an En-Suite Bath. The Lower Level opens to a spacious Family Room that is warmed by a Fireplace and features a bar area with wine storage. A third Full Bath is on this Level. There is a Mudroom with sleek built-in storage and access to the attached 2-Car Garage that has a contemporary cedar door.
Crestwood is a treasured neighborhood that borders Rock Creek Park and is one of the few communities that is lined with large lots and mature trees. Located off of 16th Street, Crestwood offers residents direct access to the trails and green space of Rock Creek Park.
