HISTORIC HOME IN THE HEART OF ROSEMONT
Located a ten-minute walk from the King Street Metro and Old Town, this one of a kind stately home beckons family and friends with a commanding exterior and “America’s Best Porch”, a welcoming area with a porch swing and plenty of space for additional seating – all surrounded by 100-year-old Ionic style columns. Classic colonial with a large center hall, this home retains its historic features while also reflecting modern and stylish sophistication. Exceptionally large rooms with high ceilings, crown moldings, hardwood floors, fresh paint, and new fixtures, along with a versatile layout, provide plenty of opportunities to entertain family and friends during holidays and all year round. Living and dining rooms both have gas fireplaces that will cast a calm fireside glow in the colder months and are framed by original mantels with intricate designs. Enchanting pocket doors separate the living room from the library/music room that could also function as a family room. Custom built-in bookcases and cabinets line one wall offering plenty of storage space. A half bath is located off the center hall. The kitchen, notable for its large size and light-filled windows, includes a center island with breakfast bar and storage, granite countertops with plenty of room for cooking, stainless appliances, and multiple cabinets and shelves. The second floor has three large bedrooms including the master. Two bedrooms share a full bath, with one bedroom showcasing the original decorative fireplace. The master suite is an expansive retreat that also has an original decorative fireplace, walk-in closet, separate large bathroom with double vanity, Jacuzzi tub, and glass-enclosed walk-in shower that can also be used as a steam room. A sitting room with extra closet space is attached to the bedroom. The third floor is complete with a half bath, two bedrooms, a hobby room/office with a view of the US Capitol and the Washington Monument. Two attics provide ample storage space. The expansive lower level of the house is the perfect place for casual gatherings of family and friends and includes a pool table (which conveys), a bar that seats four and a bar fridge, and a wall of built-ins which can double as an entertainment center. The lower level also features a bonus/room office with outside entrance, a climate-controlled wine-cellar that can hold up to 500 bottles, a separate room for laundry, a storage room, and a half bath. The large fenced in backyard features a porch off the kitchen with room for dining and two patios all surrounded by professional landscaping of mature trees, lush greenery, and seasonal flowering trees.
