A commanding presence a half block from Stanton Park, featuring ornate historic iron stairs, a gracious double door entry foyer and large stair hall w/original banister and curved railing. The spacious and grand living room w/almost floor to ceiling bay windows and a fireplace w/original slate mantel welcomes conversation. Open the tall original pocket doors and step into a banquet-size dining room w/matching fireplace, and a stunning kitchen opening to huge patio beyond, creating the perfect flow for both large-scale or more intimate entertaining, w/a convenient powder room at rear of stairs.
Architectural Digest-worthy immense and bright kitchen boasts stainless steel Viking appliances, built-in pantry, a long wall of tall cabinets above tiled backsplash and Carrara marble countertops and a huge center island breakfast bar w/farm sink and microwave. Side wall of windows and rear glass wall flood the space w/light. Imagine your next al fresco fete, stepping out to the very wide, DEEP slate patio featuring a deluxe built-in outdoor cooking area w/gas grill, built-in dining bench, 3 fans, lighting, and an evergreen turf area sheltered by mature tree. A mini-gym/yoga space currently occupies the flexi-use 150sf separate building at the rear of the property, while a cleverly-concealed gate to the alley makes for super easy bike and stroller access.
The generous and comfortable primary ensuite bedroom fills the second floor: a spacious front bedroom w/large windows, a huge custom walk-in closet, lovely subway-tiled bath w/tub, a very large office/sitting room w/fireplace and a door to the massive private terrace, an oasis in the sky to relax on chaise lounges w/cocktails or to enjoy an outdoor yoga class w/friends.
The skylit 3rd floor features 2 generously-sized bedrooms, the front w/a huge walk-in closet, the back w/a Capitol dome view, and the beautiful hall bath has marble tiles and glass stall shower.
Connecting lower level features tall ceilings, w/generous entry foyer including space to sit and put on boots. A bright spacious family room w/windowed bay and wood-burning fireplace offers multiple places to relax and enjoy movie nights. At rear is the 4th bedroom, with separate 2nd office area accessed from inside or out, the 3rd bathroom w/heated floor plus glass stall shower, and a front-loading washer/dryer closet across from clever storage cubby plus microwave underneath stairs.
Rest easy knowing this gorgeous historic home was lovingly restored and almost completely redone in the past 5 years (featured in Home and Design Magazine 2019) w/a new roof, central AC, kitchen, bathrooms, floors, most windows, front and rear exterior spaces, plus mini-gym/yoga building. Enjoy the best of Capitol Hill's past and present in an enviable location a half block to Stanton Park and Peabody/Cluster School, and a short stroll to Eastern Market, US Capitol Complex, Whole Foods, H Street, Union Station, Barracks Row, multiple Metros and BikeShares. Carpe Diem!
