This impressive semi-detached residence is located on one of the most beautiful blocks in Kalorama, one of DC's most desirable neighborhoods. Kalorama is well-known for being home to presidents, diplomats, and dignitaries. This distinguished residence is amongst many ambassadorial homes and many of the District's most historically and architecturally significant properties. The house was masterfully constructed in 1927 with a brick facade that is embellished with a richly detailed limestone door surround and beautifully set dentil molding. The interior of the residence is fully above grade, flooding the home with an abundance of natural sunlight from oversized windows throughout. The house features four impeccably finished levels of graciously scaled rooms with high ceilings, original moldings, trim work, and hardwood floors. The entry level offers an elegant reception foyer and uninterrupted access to the rear of the home. The foyer seamlessly transitions to the stunning library, which offers beautiful built-ins, a fireplace, paneling, and an adjoining powder room. There is also a large recreation room on this floor with a built-in bar and storage space. The recreation room has oversized windows and provides direct access to the private rear terrace and garden. The second floor is home to the main living rooms of the residence. There is a sophisticated living room at the front of the house that has a beautiful fireplace and intricate moldings. It has lovely street views of other magnificent homes lining the block. The living room neighbors the formal dining room, which is complemented with a central fireplace, plaster details, and glass paneled French doors leading to the hallway. The well-appointed gourmet kitchen has marble countertops, abundant cabinetry, a large center island, and high-end appliances. There is also a convenient butler's pantry with an additional dishwasher, sink, and storage nearby. The kitchen opens to the sunny breakfast room, which overlooks the lovely garden below. There is also a wonderful family room off the kitchen with four skylights, built-ins, and storage. Both the breakfast room and family room directly access the rear deck. The third level currently serves as a very generous primary floor with an elegant bedroom, two bathrooms, a large office, and an oversized dressing room. All rooms have high ceilings, large windows and are well appointed. The top floor features two large bedrooms, both with excellent closet space. These bedrooms share a central bathroom. Additionally, there is a large hall closet. The rear and side gardens are fully fenced and exceptionally private, featuring mature trees and a lovely hardscape terrace. There is also a two-car garage and an additional surface parking space. The Kalorama neighborhood is centrally located and has easy access to downtown Washington, DC, Georgetown, and Ronald Regan airport via the Rock Creek Parkway. Enjoy walking to neighborhood parks, shops and restaurants.
