This historically significant circa 1910 Italian Renaissance Revival townhouse is located in the heart of the Dupont neighborhood. Originally built by prominent American architect Waddy Wood as his personal residence, the house offers dramatic and impressive architectural elements. Wood is most famous for his works including the Woodrow Wilson House and the Main Interior Building, formally known as the Steward Lee Udall Department of the Interior Building in Washington, DC. The house has been superbly renovated and offers a flawless blend of original architectural details fused with modern-day conveniences and design. It features an abundance of natural light from large windows, which is magnified by the high ceilings throughout. There are grand-scale entertaining spaces, three of which have lovely marble fireplaces. There is also a newly installed elevator, which services all four interior floors. The entry is graced with a newly renovated front vestibule with beautiful marble floors and a glass paneled door to the lovely foyer and entry hall, which is ornamented with stunning new chandeliers. The front parlor with fireplace is perfect for entertaining, enhanced with an abundance of southern sunlight and providing a convenient powder room for guests. Towards the back of the residence is a large family room with a gas fireplace and a private bedroom with an en-suite bathroom. There is also a newly expanded storage closet on this level. The grand central stairway to the second level provides a dramatic admittance to the floor above. The second level has nearly 11-foot ceilings and offers a stunning living room with a front balcony overlooking the splendid architecture of the historic street below. There is an additional powder room on this level and a transitional hallway to the formal dining room. The dining room features a double arch wrought-iron door and leads directly to the fully renovated gourmet kitchen. The kitchen offers a large center island, high-end appliances, abundant cabinet storage, and a custom TV cabinet with wine storage. There is a matching wrought-iron arched door to the back deck with a newly installed pergola. The third level features two bedrooms, including the impressive primary suite, and an office with a fireplace. The luxurious primary bedroom has a fireplace and is illuminated with natural light from south-facing windows. There is a wall of newly-installed closets with built-ins and a spa-inspired en-suite bathroom. The renovated bathroom includes dual vanities and a shower with an overhead skylight. A large walk-in closet with an additional skylight is also accessed from the primary bathroom. The lower level of the residence features a recreation room, secondary kitchen, and full bathroom. One of the most notable features of this spectacular residence is the impressive newly updated roof deck with panoramic views of Washington. There are several seating areas beautified with greenery, a perfect place for urban entertaining. There is also off-street rear parking for two cars.
