About The Property
6118 Vernon Terrace
A luxurious 1930s brick colonial that looks plucked from a movie set, 6118 Vernon Terrace removes you from the bustle of Washington while keeping you close enough to simplify your commute. This residence offers river views and a generous three-story footprint to accommodate your life’s next chapter.
The stately façade and well-manicured lawn offer just a taste of the home’s grandeur. History meets levity within every thoughtfully designed and updated room. Gleaming hardwood floors, broad baseboard molding, soaring 9-foot ceilings, dentil crown molding, and picture rail wainscoting are timeless details. The seemingly endless sunny banks of windows, shimmering French doors, and strategically placed skylights provide an essential lightness. In a classic colonial floor plan, rooms dedicated both to public entertaining and dining as well as to private work, lounging and living comprise the main level.
Formal living and dining rooms are flanked opposite by a family room, sunroom, mudroom with custom-designed storage, and graciously updated kitchen. All-white cabinetry, subway tile backsplash, and marble countertops set a clean tone for the room, while of the line top-line appliances (including a SubZero refrigerator) make it a chef-worthy workspace. An island with built-in range and counter seating anchors the room, while the nearby window banquette makes a cozy breakfast nook.
Entertain with ease by transitioning guests through the elegant labyrinthine pathways that connect family, living and dining rooms through French doors opening to a bricked courtyard. Indoor-outdoor living is possible in all seasons with mere steps’ retreat to the living room’s wood-burning fireplace, the sanctuary of a sunroom — and most practically — the catch-all mudroom with organization system for coats, shoes, shopping bags, and sports equipment.
On the home’s upper level, find spacious bedrooms and contemporary bathrooms with luxe marble and tile details. The master bedroom’s en suite apothecary-style bathroom boasts a soaking tub and expansive, glass-enclosed shower. A finished basement with urban-chic poured concrete countertops, exposed beams, and walk-in tile shower provides additional room for overnight guests or quarters for live-in caretakers. Enjoy the ample storage space in the basement, a detached two-car garage, and deep third-floor closets.
The Belle Haven neighborhood is an enclave five miles south of Old Town and a short commute from Washington, DC. A neighborhood in the true sense of the word, residents thrive in the quiet serenity while enjoying their connection to work, play, and entertainment in the nearby city.
