This extraordinary studio condo makes a stunning pied-a-terre or first-time home. Located in a boutique building converted from a turn of the century mansion on one of Dupont Circle’s loveliest avenues, this sunny home was the original library. Its breathtaking décor includes elegant, leaded glass and wooden built-in cabinets, a marble surround fireplace with ornate mantle and intricate crown moldings accentuating its 11-foot ceilings. Elegant and spacious at approximately 550 square feet, this home faces southeast overlooking New Hampshire Avenue and allowing sun to stream in through its 8-foot windows. Built into the bow-front window is curved seating perfect for use with a dining table or as a reading nook. The bow-front windows have been replaced with wooden, double hung, double-pane Pella windows for both sound mitigation and energy efficiency. This Owner added custom, fabric black-out window coverings that lift from the bottom and lower from the top. The wood-burning fireplace is functioning; it has not been used since its last cleaning. The expansive living area has heart of pine floors and a gorgeous chandelier to complete its sophisticated look. Finishing out the unit is a sparkling white galley kitchen with granite counters and considerable cabinet space, an updated bath with standing shower, an Elfa custom closet and a stacked, in-unit washer/dryer.
With a Walk Score of 98 – a “Walkers Paradise”, you could not ask for a better location from which to enjoy DC. This home has easy access to Dupont Circle metro, Adams Morgan, 14th Street and U Street Corridors, Meridian Hill Park, the S St. dog park, and all the amazing restaurants, nightlife, shopping and grocers such as Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods and Dupont Farmer’s Market.
