This Regency-style townhouse is in Sheridan Kalorama, a neighborhood well-known for welcoming presidents, diplomats, and dignitaries into its community. The home is ideally situated among numerous attractive houses and makes its own contribution to the District's most historically and architecturally significant neighborhood. The residence was built in 1924 as one of a row of five Regency-style townhomes. It has undergone an extensive renovation designed and overseen by renowned architect Thorndike Williams. No detail was overlooked in the meticulous rebuilding that seamlessly integrates beautiful modern updates, including an elevator, with the home's historic character and charm. The stunning residence features a striking pedimented brick facade with elegant limestone details and a large central window. There are nine-foot ceilings throughout. Introducing the home is a beautifully landscaped front walk and garden with a sculpted birdbath that creates exceptional curb appeal. Inside the entry, a marble foyer leads to an attractive reception room adorned with cased arched windows, intricate moldings, which carry throughout the home, and a charming fireplace. Nearby is a powder room and coat closet. The elevator lobby is to the rear at mid-house on this level. Guests may also ascend an elegant five-foot wide stairway under a 15' ceiling and with a custom bronze stair rail to the second level, the main living quarters. The main level is designed for elegant living, with rooms illuminated by natural light from the impressive oversized windows. These face a wonderful cityscape view in the front and treed privacy in the rear. This level offers an exquisite living room with built-in shelving, a sophisticated dining room, a beautifully updated gourmet eat-in kitchen, powder room, and elevator, which was built to the maximum permitted residential dimensions. The kitchen is well-appointed with marble countertops, extensive cabinetry, a peninsula with a breakfast bar, and high-end appliances by Wolf, Miele, and Subzero. Adjacent to the kitchen is a sunny windowed breakfast room that faces tall trees, providing extensive privacy. There are attractive custom moldings and casings throughout, giving the whole house a jewel-like appearance. The third floor constitutes the primary bedroom suite level, featuring a generously scaled primary bedroom, an expansive dressing room with multiple walk-in closets, extensive built-ins, and a coffee station with a refrigerator. The spa-inspired marble bathroom has dual vanities, a large soaking tub, and a separate shower. Finally, there is a large elegant library/sitting room, rich with custom bookshelves and cabinetry, that provides access to the second full bathroom on this floor. Ascending to the top floor, natural light from a large skylight floods the staircase. This level provides two additional large bedrooms, each with ample walk-in closet space. They share a central bathroom. Located at the rear of the ground floor, there are three additional rooms for multiple purposes, such as offices, guest suites, exercise, or wellness rooms. The utility and laundry rooms are also here. Direct access to the private rear garden and terrace is on this level. The house has Cat 5 and coaxial cable communication wiring in all rooms. The property's rear exterior is exceptionally private and offers a fully enclosed garden, layered landscaping, and a sizable flagstone terrace, perfect for outdoor dining and entertaining. There is also a detached two-car garage, accessible via the back gate or the extra-wide, brick-paved, well-lit rear alley. This impressive Regency-style residence combines historic charm with modern luxury in a sought-after Sheridan Kalorama, making it a unique and desirable offering.
