This generational home is nestled on a 31,000 SF lot on one the most coveted streets in all of NW Washington. The home has more than 6,000 SF of living space, and includes 7 bedrooms, five and half baths, and provides a warm and timeless elegance that is hard to find anywhere else.
Guests are immediately welcomed by the large, covered front porch and gracious foyer. The grand living room is certainly the focal point of the main level, with 13 ft ceilings, an inviting fireplace, and custom built-ins. Oversized windows fill the room with natural light, while two sets of French doors lead to the back patio overlooking the immaculately manicured grounds, terrace and swimming pool. Of course, the oversized, south-facing eat-in kitchen with large island, butler’s pantry, wet bar, powder room, formal dining room, back staircase, elevator and stunning library with its own enchanting fireplace and built-ins all complete the first floor.
The second level is equally well proportioned, with four large bedrooms including a primary bedroom that is breathtaking with its expansive South and East facing views, generous closets and his and hers baths. The oversized laundry room on this level is also a welcome addition. . The third floor features two additional bedrooms with a hall bathroom and a bonus room with a built-in window bench, providing plenty of space for guests. The lower level includes an additional bedroom with an en-suite full bathroom, and ample storage, including a wine room, and the potential to access the garage directly from the lower level.
The outside grounds are absolutely stunning and include a flagstone patio off the main living area, and an in-ground pool with automatic cover. The owner, a Master Gardener, created a magical oasis on the grounds with meandering trails, hidden picnic areas, and stunning flora throughout. In fact, the garden was recognized as one of the greatest shade gardens on the East Coast by the American Horticultural Society.
A driveway and a single-car garage (with possible expansion) provide convenient off-street parking. The home is two blocks from Rosedale Conservancy, and just a short walk to all of the shops, restaurants and attractions along Connecticut and Wisconsin Avenues, and within a half mile of the Cleveland Park Metro Station.
