About This Property

CLASSIC ELEGANCE MEETS MODERN LUXURY! This gorgeous home has been transformed from its builder grade roots to an exquisite entertaining showcase--and a warm and welcoming family home! The spacious Italian marble foyer opens to an elegant living room, dining room, butler's pantry, front staircase and lighted marble niches. The mahogany library has built-ins, French pocket doors and a coffered ceiling. The main level features 10' ceilings, handcrafted finishes, moldings, designer lighting, beautiful hardwood, marble and imported English tile floors. The back of the house, with its connecting rear staircase, has an open floor plan--the family room with fireplace and built-ins, sunroom, breakfast room, chef's kitchen with large island, pantry and mudroom. French doors open from the breakfast room to the large flagstone floored screened porch with ample room for dining and seating. The kitchen is the heart of the home with its large island that seats 4, a pantry, Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances, 2 Miele dishwashers and sunny breakfast room. The mudroom has a second Sub-Zero refrigerator, sink, pocket door, 3 closets, built-in bench and separate entrances to the screened porch, side porch and custom finished garage. Convenient to the kitchen and porches is a built-in Wolf gas grill. The upper level features 5 spacious bedrooms, 4 marble baths, hardwood floors, 9' ceilings, walk-in closets, built-ins, plantation shutters and a newly renovated marble laundry room. The master suite is a luxurious oasis... its marble bath has a deep jetted tub, dual shower, vanities and dressing table. Relax or watch TV in the master sitting room with windows on 3 sides. The well appointed His and Hers custom closets have lavish details--her closet has a quartz-topped island, shoe and jewelry storage, and TV. The sunny, newly renovated walk-out lower level features 9' ceilings, full size windows and French doors. There is a large rec room, TV/ sitting area, kitchenette and bedroom with an en suite bath and huge walk-in closet--perfect for an au pair or guests. There are also multiple closets and a large unfinished area with custom shelving. The elegant screened porch features custom Doric columns and opens to a terrace and steps leading to the large patio with pergola, pond and waterfall, as well as multiple areas for seating and dining. Outdoor lighting illuminates the entire .46 acre property at night and there are built-in speakers on the patio and screened porch. The landscaping is breathtaking, with the lush foliage blooming throughout the seasons. The view from the front of the house is of the woods backing St. Stephen's & St. Agnes School. The rear view is of mature oaks, ornamental trees and banks of blooming flowers and shrubs. Each side of the property has fully grown privacy hedges of hollies, boxwoods and magnolias. This home is a tranquil and private oasis in the heart of the city, yet Del Ray and Old Town are a short walk or drive for dining and shopping--along with the local schools, both public and private--and only minutes from Reagan National Airport and National Landing.
