About This Property

OPEN Sun Oct. 20 - 2:00 - 4:00. Truly one of Columbia Heights' grand homes, built circa 1900 (4BR/3.5BA main; 3BR/2BA legal English basement). This incredible detached home (check 3D dollhouse virtual tour) offers a beautiful blend of period detail, historic character and expected amenities for today's lifestyle. At almost 5,000 total sq. ft., the handsome and ornate detailed limestone facade, wisteria draped front porch, offers a commanding presence on Kenyon Street and only hints at the delights within. The spectacular interior sports oversized living spaces, 10 foot ceilings, ornate plaster crown moldings (many gold-leafed), finely turned and detailed wood trim, fretwork, wainscoting, working pocket doors & doorway transoms, gorgeous hardwoods and stunning imported English wallpaper. The grand natural wood central staircase is a focal point that leads to upper levels including a full floor MBR suite. The main level living and dining rooms feature ornate fireplaces (gas), and the kitchen features a stove-type gas insert. An outstanding feature of the spacious dining room is a gorgeous built-in oak cabinet of grand proportions w/ leaded glass cabinet doors. The updated chef's kitchen features a six-burner Viking stove with restaurant style hood (warming lights), Monogram refrigerator, Bosch dishwasher, GE Profile wine cooler, white cabinets, granite counters, separate pantry, and bead-board ceiling. This is brightly highlighted by a lovely bay window which overlooks the spacious rear brick patio, the perfect venue for large scale outdoor entertaining. The full floor second level master bedroom suite has been re-imagined as welcoming retreat. It offers a front sitting room with custom designed bookcases and shelving, custom sliding room divider, glass transoms with decorative wrought iron flourishes, two large custom crafted walk-in closets and separate dressing area. The master bathroom offers a luxurious blend of modern and vintage: matching dual pedestal sinks, shower bay with glass surround and dual shower heads, private commode room, and antique soaking tub ~ all providing a respite from busy Washington, DC. There is a lovely updated hall bathroom and laundry facilities on this level. The third floor offers three large, bright bedrooms and a full bathroom sporting marble accents and tile. The large lower level 3Br/2BA English basement apartment(currently rented at $2,900/mo) is separately metered and has two exterior entrances. Columbia Hts Metro is 2 blocks; DC USA, Target, Bed Bath & Beyond, Best Buy are around the corner. And many exciting new restaurants and bars on 14th and 11th Streets are all in close proximity!
