Created by Brush Arbor Home Construction’s masterful collaboration of architects, interior designers, and landscape architects, this total renovation of one of Frederick Douglass’ former residences is a four-level Second Empire-style townhouse of impeccable elegance and exceptional scale. Providing bespoke tranquility in a coveted location just a couple blocks from the Supreme Court, Capitol and Senate Buildings, no detail has been overlooked in the custom renovation of this architectural gem. Here, luxury and sophistication clearly meet modern day amenities and lifestyle needs.
A spectacular open floor plan integrates 10 foot ceilings, elevator shaft, custom interior and exterior millwork, hand-milled white oak floors, Jeld Wen windows and doors, fixtures by Kallista and waterworks, and designer bespoke finishes such as lighting by Visual Comfort; all provide breadth and airiness on the main level. There is a seamless flow from indoors to outdoors from a custom 15-foot wall of retractable doors opens to the rear patio and garden, capturing an abundance of natural light adjacent to the chef’s kitchen with its rigorously curated appliance package.
The well-appointed primary bedroom is on the third level, with spa-inspired bathroom, walk-in closets, large sitting room with wet bar and private roof terrace. All five secondary bedrooms, spread across the second level and the lower level echo the primary’s luxury finishes and closet space. The exceptionally crafted lower level’s family room with built-ins, bonus bedrooms and access to the garden from the lower level provide excellent flexibility for au-pair or in-law living configurations. The exterior has been planned with the utmost discernment, executed to provide a private backyard retreat which features a stone patio, shaded by strategically chosen, well-placed greenery, with both a single car and a two-car garage (totaling three parking spaces).
