About The Property
1512 Stonewall Road
Renowned Washington architect Waddy B. Wood designed this 1918 classic stucco estate as a private retreat from fast-paced city life. Close enough to access DC — but removed sufficiently to escape it — 1512 Stonewall Road is a premier, ridge-top lot of 0.55 acres.
Grounds are designed as thoughtfully as the home. Take pride in your Bicentennial tree (ornamented with a plaque designating it), and luxuriate in a variety of hardy, flowering and rare trees that cloak the estate in verdant privacy. Graciously tall maples, dogwoods, spruces, hemlocks and cherry trees flank the house along with azaleas, boxwoods, ferns and lilies at waist-height along the property. Terraced and illuminated gardens offer outdoor lounging and dining to extend your living space beyond the stucco walls. Stroll paths lined with fragrant, colorful flowers, or take your morning coffee in the green enclave accessible through soaring 8-foot French doors.
Your life becomes a lifestyle in this premier architectural gem. Pleasure is as simple as breathing when banks of windows and shimmering French doors allow endless light to pool on your hardwood floors and bounce along walls ornamented with historical moldings and baseboards. Cross breezes pass strategically through the home when you utilize all three sets of French doors. Gaze outward at the property or fixate on the exquisite century-old details inside: a federal-style fireplace in the living room, a custom grape motif chandelier in the dining room, and a hand-carved mantel previously owned by first lady Dolley Madison. Ten-foot ceilings keep the eye traveling up and amplify your sense of space.
Historians and contemporary homeowners alike will find a haven in this one-of-a-kind home. Host long-term guests or household assistants with ample room in a finished, walk-out basement. A detached two-car garage provides parking in addition to two discreet spaces off the kitchen. Library and living spaces offer private study and entertainment areas, and five bedrooms with three and a half baths accommodate the busiest of households. Your retreat within the retreat is the plush master bedroom and en suite spa bathroom, updated for modern needs and tastes. The Juliet balcony off the master bedroom is pure romance — both in beholding the home’s façade and in enjoying the perch.
