Design, Lifestyle and Location all converge at this very special offering. This whitewashed brick Colonial is perched high on the lot with a gracious presence. Inside, you are further struck by the interior’s flowing spaces and how they are bathed in natural light throughout. Soaring 20-ft ceilings in the entry with views to the towering 18-ft Palladian window across and in the Dining Room set the tone. As you move through the spaces seamlessly, you have uninterrupted sight lines of the gorgeous rear terrace and gardens from almost every space in the home; a wonderful backdrop for large-scale entertaining and/or cozy days at home. The Living Room, Sitting Room, Library, Chef’s Kitchen with breakfast table and at-home workspace, Dining Room, and Powder Room are located on the main level and boast architectural and design details that showcase the spaces: 10-ft ceilings, three fireplaces, five sets of dual Palladian doors, exquisite millwork throughout, banded wood floors, luxury appliances, Fornasetti tiles, contemporary lighting and window panel and doors providing indoor/outdoor experiences.
On the bedrooms’ level, a massive skylight frames sky views. The primary suite features two separate en-suite baths (one of which was completely renovated in 2022), a large walk-in closet, a fireplace, three sets of dual Palladian doors and spans the length of the home from front to rear with three exposures; a guest suite with en-suite bath and a fireplace; a third bedroom currently used as a sitting/media room with direct access to the adjacent full hall bath; and a large laundry room. The expansive upper level is a collection of generously sized separate spaces with skylights offering a home gym, a home office, a playroom, and a huge, cedar-lined seasonal storage area.
The lower level is partially above-grade with natural light from surrounding windows and doors, features an open multi-function space currently designated for tv-viewing/media room, a sitting room, and at-home workspace. Additional elements include a brick, temperature-controlled wine cellar, a large bedroom currently used as artist studio/workshop with direct access to the adjacent full bath and a working/catering kitchen. Private, walk-out level access to the front of the home and interior home access to the garage, complete this level.
Your private sanctuary in the city doesn’t adequately capture the wonderful rear terrace. Mature trees and multiple, intimate gathering spaces conceal its true scale. Outfitted with an illumination scheme, flagstone surfaces, and a variety of beds and gardening areas are the added elements to your luxurious outdoor experience.
Located in Berkley, a fabulous location near MacArthur Boulevard's plethora of offerings and lifestyle amenities, with easy access to Georgetown, the Kennedy Center, Downtown DC and more.
