Welcome to 323 S Pitt St, located in the heart of historic Old Town. Originally built in 1890, and nestled in the coveted and tight-knit community of the SE quadrant, this stunning home fuses old-world charm with modern embellishments. Only two blocks away from bustling King Street, enjoy all the quaint shops and boutiques, award-winning restaurants, the peaceful Potomac River waterfront, and splendid events and entertainment that happen year-round. This residence will provide its new owners with a home to be proud of and a lifestyle of convenience.
The exterior showcases handsome transom windows, and true to the Victorian era-style home, a double-door entry system that is excellent for package deliveries and never having to be in the rain while looking for your keys! Step inside and be captured by the refined and open setting, which is complemented by the tall ceilings, original heart of pine wood floors, crown molding, chair rail accent, and a beautifully selected color palette. The receiving room (living room) features a wood-burning fireplace and custom built-in shelves/cabinets. It flows seamlessly into the formal dining area with a decorative fireplace that is separated by stately columns and flaunts a dramatic chandelier with a medallion surround.
Moving to the sophisticated and renovated kitchen, the comfortable environment features wine storage, center island with a breakfast bar (space for three stools) and cooktop, granite counters, and stainless appliances all replaced between 2016-2021. The side door in the kitchen leads to a private brick patio space that will be a welcomed respite in the warmer months and is ideal for dining alfresco.
Taking the stairs lit by the lovely period stained glass window to the first upper level, you will find two bedrooms and two full baths. The primary suite is the perfect space to relax with a soothing wood-burning fireplace, a large walk-in closet (rare in Old Town), a lovely ensuite bath with a glass-enclosed walk-in shower, and a beautiful vanity. The second bathroom on this level was renovated in 2019 and flaunts a claw-foot tub with shower, towel warmer, and paneled wall detail with a pop of color to contrast the white aesthetic. The top floor is a third bedroom or a great flex space to use as an office or sitting room. The fully finished lower level is the epitome of bygone allure with exposed brick walls and wood ceiling beams in the spacious family room with a walk-out/separate entry and a third bathroom. This layout makes a wonderful, and quiet guest suite option. Downstairs you also will find a laundry room with a utility sink, washer and dryer (new in 2021).
Ample storage (another rarity in Old Town) is found throughout the home, but especially in the basement and on the top floor in the attic.
Additional perks while living at 323 S Pitt Street: great views of the DC 4th of July fireworks from the top floor; the annual Scottish Christmas Walk (parade) just down the street; location blocks to the GW Parkway makes commuting to DC fast! If you’re looking for a home that’s not just a place to live but a place to truly belong, then 323 S Pitt St is the perfect home for you. Come take a look and see for yourself!
