THE ESSENCE OF STYLE FUSED WITH TIMELESS CHARM. 201 N Quaker Lane, meticulously constructed over 100 years ago, has been lovingly renovated over its lifetime to embrace modern necessities, cherish its roaring 1920’s era details, and expanded to enhance everyday comforts. First impressions matter and the trademark circular driveway surrounded by verdant landscaping, reveals a commanding Italian stone facade guaranteed to have a lasting impact. Crossing the threshold into a living room setting, the depth of sophistication and quality craftsmanship immediately overflows the senses. Hardwood floors, classic crown molding, neutral paint colors that complement every decor choice, and versatile rooms to accommodate any lifestyle needs. The social dining area is a beautiful space to host gatherings and is distinguished by a wood-burning fireplace with original wood mantle and surround, a unique accent window, and custom built-in china cabinets. Open a door that leads to a quaint sunroom; the perfect nook for escaping with a book. Flow seamlessly to a great room/family room that offers another fireplace with a stone accent wall, and is brightened by grand windows on three sides with doors that lead to a balcony that overlooks the deep grounds and mature trees. Clean lines define the gourmet eat-in kitchen that boasts new Quartz countertops and subway tile backsplash, a multi-functional peninsula island illuminated by freshly installed pendant lighting, state-of-the-art stainless appliances (Viking Professional), ample cabinet/drawer storage, a breakfast bar for quick bites, and all open up to a brilliant breakfast nook, embellished by stone floors, to enjoy more casual meals. If main level living is needed, there is one bedroom and one full bath that completes this space.
The upper level of this home is a supreme retreat with a gracious entire floor Primary suite. Features a cozy wood-burning fireplace, a spacious walk-in closet, a spa-inspired luxury ensuite bathroom with a sauna, dual sink vanity, and a walk-in shower with rainfall showerhead. Sitting room/office with built-in cabinets and shelves will be a place where ideas come to life! And the private balcony will be the best spot to watch the sunrise or set.
The finished lower level presents a rec room where everyone will want to kick back and relax. A third bedroom and full bath provide a perfect guest/in-law/au-pair suite arrangement. And the kitchenette with oven/range, microwave, and refrigerator offers additional conveniences.
Close to local schools, major interstate access, metro, Amazon HQ2, historic Old Town, trendy Shirlington, always popular DC. If you are looking to make special memories (three weddings/receptions have been hosted here), have a flair for entertaining, need space, and love to be nestled in a “wood-like” environment, this is the home for you.
The roof is the original slate that lasts a lifetime. HWH is three years old. The HVAC and furnace are 5 years old.
