Rarely will you find a property this extraordinary. The owners invested $1.75 million in a comprehensive renovation and redesign from David Jameson, one of the nation’s most celebrated architects. Jameson custom designs homes for clients by reshaping them into what he terms “habitable art.” This five-level residence is the quintessential example of the award-winning architect’s forward-looking vision—an urban dreamscape filled with light and inspiration. Measuring nearly 5,000 square feet inside plus multiple private outdoor spaces, this glorious showcase is perfect for entertaining. You’ll be forgiven, however, if you’d rather just relax and retreat from the outside world. The transformative living experience includes five bedrooms and 5.5 baths. In addition, five beautiful gas fireplaces throughout the home that offer an inviting living experience. The distinctive Kalorama row house was built in 1910, presenting a classic brick Victorian sensibility from the street with a distinctive front bay and top dormers. But step inside and witness a stunning metamorphosis that is wholly modern while still retaining subtle traits of a bygone era such as new rift-sawn white oak floors on the main and second level that are finished to match the stunning original heart of pine on levels three and four. Giant arched bay windows allow natural light to flood a great room concept with its open living and dining areas. An incredible custom Boffi kitchen features floor-to-ceiling titanium cabinetry along opposite walls. White quartzite counters and recessed Miele appliances offer a special place to create culinary delights. A linear fireplace is the perfect complement to this special cook space. Towering 11-foot sliders segue to an eye-popping wooden deck overlooking a private backyard oasis with a flagstone patio. Imagine sitting by the custom fire pit, surrounded by brick walls, curved stoned borders and raised plantings. It’s your secret garden in the city. Heading up the wood and glass floating stairs, you’ll discover that the entire second floor has been dedicated to an incredible owners’ suite where living and sleeping areas merge together as one. The Boffi bath with its giant window wall belongs on the cover of a magazine! Features include Fantini appliances, Robern Uplift cabinets and an extravagant spa shower experience with multiple jets, separate controls and audio speakers. Adding to the convenience at this level is a massive walk-in closet plus a washer and dryer. The third level offers a guest suite and additional bedrooms. Bathrooms feature Robern cabinetry, custom Italian sinks, a glass shower cube and a stunning standalone tub. Beyond a large home office is an exceptional roof deck with a heat lamp, yet another remarkable outdoor vista. Additional light-filled rooms are found at the very top, along with an exquisite modern bath. Finally, the very lowest level of the home features a gourmet kitchen, a fitness area, yoga studio, separate cardio room, full bath, and a laundry with sink and extra-large washer and dryer. To live in this David Jameson home is a transcendent experience in one of Washington’s grand old neighborhoods. All-New Systems and Mechanical Include: Floor-to-ceiling windows, first three levels Electrical system, Lutron lighting, multiple built-in ceiling speakers throughout Ceiling lights designed to move for art on walls Multiple USB ports, electric shades, wiring for eight TVs HVAC, ductwork and AC units Radiant heating first and second floors, plus bathrooms on the third floor Ironclad mainline plumbing throughout house, copper throughout the rest State of the art hot water recirculation pipes in owner’s suite (no waiting for hot water) Whole-house central humidifier system including basement Level 2 EV charger in the garage area.
