Desirably located in Georgetown’s East Village are these combined historic townhouses now known as 1524 29th Street. The homes live as one generous house with a main floor in-law suite. The residences were originally built in 1887 and both parcels were combined around 1998. The homes have retained many of their original elements, including heart pine floors, moldings, and fireplaces. There are elegant formal entertaining rooms filled with an abundance of natural sunlight from large windows throughout. A charming front vestibule leads to the gracious entry foyer, which provides a seamless transition to the sophisticated dining room. The dining room is complemented with lovely built-ins. Neighboring the dining room is the kitchen, which offers a Viking six-burner range and exterior access to a brick pathway that leads to the rear garden. Towards the back of the house, the formal living room is a great place for entertaining. The light-filled room has a beautiful wood-burning fireplace and French doors to the screened porch, which directly accesses the rear garden and terrace. A powder room, coat closet, and elevator to all floors are conveniences found on the main level. The houses are not connected on this floor, but are on the lower level, second, and third floors. The second level has two bedrooms, including the primary suite, that are both spacious and light-filled. The first bedroom adjoins a wonderful study and the second bedroom, the primary, has a gas fireplace, neighboring dressing room, and an en-suite half bathroom. There is also a full bathroom and elevator access on this floor. The third floor offers four additional bedrooms, a full bathroom, abundant built-ins, storage, and elevator access. The lower level has a laundry room with two sets of utility sinks, a wine cellar, a half bathroom, ample storage, elevator access, and four entries to the lovely rear gardens and the front of the house. The beautifully finished in-law suite is accessed via its own separate front door entrance. The main level offers a living room with a gas fireplace and built-ins, a bedroom with an additional gas fireplace, a full kitchen with a separate washer and dryer, and a powder room. There is a full bathroom on the second level and additional storage space on the top floor. Both houses and the elevator can be powered by a commercial-grade generator. The private gardens and terraces are beautifully layered with mature plants and flowers. There is also a long private driveway with tandem parking for two cars. While located on a quiet and charming block, the house is within close walking distance to restaurants, shops, and numerous parks. 1524/1526 Street NW. Property conveys AS-IS.
