Open Saturday, 8/14, from 2 to 4 p.m.. Presenting an intimate alternative to ordinary condo towers, this lovely two-bedroom, two-bath residence is part of a renovated 1938 classic Colonial home in desirable Glover Park. Located on a quiet street with leafy canopies of trees, the building has eight units, two for each floor. There’s tons of curb appeal, and Glover Archbold Trail is right at the end of the street.
Gleaming wide-plank floors run throughout the modernized abode, with abundant natural light pouring in through large windows framed by lovely traditional trim. The open living and dining area with its airy ambiance features a gourmet kitchen with pendant lights hanging over the white quartz island. Cook to your heart’s delight with upscale stainless steel appliances set unobtrusively into white cabinetry, with a custom pale mosaic back splash.
Two nicely sized bedrooms are at opposite ends for maximum privacy. The front master offers two walk-in closets and an ensuite bath with white quartz topped vanity, designer fixtures and a frameless shower. The second full bath has a white quartz vanity and deep soaking tub. A glass paneled door in the second bedroom leads out to the back patio. Also included is a stacked front-loading washer and dryer, tucked neatly into a closet.
Outdoor space is also a true bonus with both sun and shade, and a nice view. There’s a private patio plus a grassy area, with plenty of room for lounge furniture and grilling. It’s great for dogs! Steps lead from the backyard down to an additional large shared patio and lawn for grilling and relaxation. A private parking area off the back alley provides easy access and a convenient way to bring in groceries. One spot is included, and separately deeded for this unit.
The location is optimal for this delightful condo on Davis Place. Glover Archbold Park with its remarkable foliage and famed hiking trail is just two blocks west at the end of the street. Head in the other direction and you’ll find urban conveniences, such as an eclectic spine of indie businesses and restaurants along Wisconsin Avenue.
The family-friendly neighborhood was named after Charles C. Glover, a noted philanthropist and advocate for DC’s beautification. In addition to the aforementioned green-space to the west, Whitehaven Park lies to the south. There’s a close-knit community atmosphere, with organized events, community gardens, dog parks, food trucks and a Saturday flea market. There are also numerous embassies nearby, as well as the National Cathedral to the north and the United States Naval Observatory to the east.
It’s not all parks and picnics; the local restaurant scene includes Glover Park Grill, Old Europe, Dumplings and Beyond, Breadsoda, Wingo’s, Rockland’s Barbeque, Sprig and Sprout, sweetgreen, and Point Chaud Café & Crepes. Groceries can be gathered at Safeway and Trader Joe’s (with a new Whole Foods opening soon). Area schools included the highly-rated Stoddert Elementary as well as multiple quality private options.
