Cleveland Park, named after previous resident President Grover Cleveland, is one of the most sought-after neighborhoods in Washington. Beginning in 1895 until 1904, four well-established architects of different design backgrounds were hired to design one-of-a-kind houses, each with varying stylistic preference that give present-day Cleveland Park its great eclecticism, character, and charm that has endured for decades. The construction and design of these exceptional houses continued until the 1930s, when the neighborhood was almost fully completed. These impressive residences are still prominently positioned along the lovely tree-lined streets and offer a variety of attractive elements, most notably the generous front porches, which provide cooling breezes and serve as outdoor rooms and neighborhood gathering places. Originally constructed in 1927, this spectacular residence perfectly exemplifies traditional Cleveland Park style and design. It is ideally located on a .14-acre lot with impressive views of one of Washington’s most iconic buildings, the National Cathedral. The charming front façade offers a marvelous front porch, which acts as an extension of living space for the main level. The gracious entry foyer has beautiful hardwood floors and is flooded with natural sunlight. It seamlessly transitions to the living room, which offers built-ins and a wood-burning fireplace with a well-preserved original mantle. The neighboring dining room is conveniently located off the kitchen, which can be directly accessed via a swinging door. The kitchen provides exterior access onto the back deck and both the interior and exterior overlook the lovely rear yard. A tasteful fully windowed sunroom is also found on this level and is a wonderful space for an additional sitting room or office. There is the added convenience of a powder room and coat closet on this floor as well. A handsome stairway leads to the large central landing on the second level. The primary bedroom is spacious and appointed with a large walk-in closet. It has an en-suite bathroom, which can also be accessed from the hallway. There are three additional bedrooms on this floor, each filled with sunlight and providing a sizable closet. There is an additional full bathroom on this floor, as well as a sunny back office/sitting room. The third level acts as a generously-scaled loft space with ample storage space and access to a south-facing roof deck with Cathedral views, a rarity in Cleveland Park. The lower level provides a bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, a washer and dryer with a nearby utility sink, and an exceptional amount of additional storage space. The rear grounds of the property are extraordinarily private. The pool-sized rear yard is surrounded by mature trees and wonderfully landscaped gardens. There is a charming brick terrace/walkway and one-car garage parking. The house is within close walking distance to restaurants, shops, and the Metro.
