This beautifully renovated brick townhouse is ideally located on a sought-after street in the heart of Georgetown. The stunning Federal residence was originally built in 1810 and has been home to notable owners including the 56th Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger. The house features generously-proportioned formal entertaining rooms complemented with elegant details such as dentil moldings, built-ins, and plantation shutters. It features five finished levels, nine lovely fireplaces, and an elevator to all floors. An abundance of natural sunlight from northern and southern exposures illuminates the house, which is further magnified by the large windows and high ceilings throughout. The gracious entry foyer provides seamless transition to the sophisticated formal living room, which is enhanced with built-ins and a fireplace. The dining room, which can be closed off with pocket doors, neighbors the living room and also showcases charming built-ins and a central fireplace. The impeccably renovated gourmet kitchen features custom cabinetry, marble countertops, a large center island with a breakfast bar, and top-of-the-line appliances including a six-burner gas range, integrated refrigerator and freezer, wine cooler, microwave, and dual dishwashers. The kitchen adjoins a sunny breakfast nook with a built-in banquet. It also pleasantly opens to a wonderful family room with a fireplace, built-ins, and direct access to the private rear terrace through beautiful French doors, making this an exceptional space for indoor-outdoor entertaining. There is also the added convenience of a powder room on this floor. Upstairs, the well-appointed primary suite offers a sunny south-facing bedroom with a fireplace and an expansive dressing room that is outfitted with abundant built-in shelving and island storage. The suite has two luxurious marble bathrooms, both with beautiful fixtures and finishes. An additional bedroom and full bathroom are found on this floor, as well as a wonderful sitting room overlooking the rear terrace. There is also a conveniently located upper level laundry room. The third floor has two more generous bedrooms, both with fireplaces and large double door closets. The bedrooms share a renovated marble hall bathroom with dual vanities and a frameless glass shower. An expansive family room/loft on the top floor offers flexible-use space with another fireplace, a full bathroom, and lovely views. The lower level of the residence is fully renovated and has a large recreation room, a bathroom, substantial storage space, and exterior access.
