Situated on one of the loveliest and quietest blocks in the East Village, this over 5,100 square foot semi-detached townhome provides what one needs in our current times and the future. This outstanding residence is the perfect welcoming escape with its secluded wrap-around, partially covered porch overlooking an expansive beautifully landscaped garden, a total of seven bedrooms or office spaces, a spacious above-ground lower level recreation/family room, a parlor adjacent to the exquisite living room, and an exterior and interior entrance one-bedroom in-law suite with all new appliances in a fully equipped kitchen. High ceilings throughout are complemented by large windows, stunning wood floors are newly-refinished, special architectural details abound, incredible light floods every room, a dressing room/study adjoins the master suite, and an elevator offers easy access – these are just a few of the outstanding features of this turn-of-the century elegant yet family oriented Georgetown jewel. This residence and its expansive outdoor areas not only provide serenity and style but also a wealth of space for social distancing, quiet places for family members, and storage of treasured belongings.
Serene and stylish are interchangeable when describing the living room. The large curved bay provides views of the front garden and tree-lined street and floods the room with exceptional light. In the adjacent parlor, tranquility continues but becomes a bit more casual. Family and friends will enjoy feasting in the dining room with the plusses of an entrance to the side deck and convenient backstairs shelving where dining and excess kitchen essentials can be stored. The kitchen features an island with sink, new double ovens and cooktop, and glass doors that lead to the deck where social distancing is a breeze.
The owner suite is heaven with bay windows, adjoining bathroom with walk-in shower and double sink, and adjoining room currently set up as a sitting area but can also be a dressing room or additional bedroom. Two more sun-filled bedrooms are on the second level as is a charming bathroom. On the third floor are two delightful bedrooms, one the same size as the owner bedroom, with the bonus of an enticing balcony. The bathroom is another charmer as is the wet bar neatly closeted in the hallway. A skylight provides unique natural light. Views of the Washington Monument might tempt a future owner to consider a roof deck.
It is almost inaccurate to call the floor below the main living area as the lower level as it is above-ground. This level is divided into two areas. One is an impressive family/recreation room with powder room and with one wall perfect for big screen media. The other section is a fully equipped in-law, one-bedroom suite with a new bathroom and all new appliances, a perfect place for visitors or family needing a separate space.
The front garden is not always a treat that you find in Georgetown and this one is a hint of what is to come. The qualities of the back garden are also rarities. The wrap-around deck with easy access to the kitchen and the garden is a dream come true. The covered area of the deck has lighting and a fan. The entrance to the deck from the dining room allows visitors to skip the kitchen. The secluded garden has a traditional English style and with the combination of the deck and the rear garden, the space for family and friends, like the rest of the home, is almost limitless.
