Set back from the street and cloistered behind a brick privacy wall and plantings of American beech and photinia sits this four-story Federal-style residence of restrained grandeur. This stately detached house is a rarity in Georgetownâ€™s prestigious East Village, known primarily for its townhouses. The front gardens feature multiple planting beds, potted plants, screening trees, and a granite motor court. The entry level opens to a gracious foyer, which leads to exceptionally-scaled spaces for formal entertaining. The generously-proportioned library features a wall of built-in bookshelves and cabinetry, stunning coffered ceilings, and a fireplace. The elegant living room is adjacent to the library and graced with dramatic 21-foot ceilings, a fireplace, and a wall of French doors and windows overlooking the beautiful rear terrace and gardens. The rear grounds are accessible through six French doors and offer a serene and private escape consisting of multiple gardens with mature plantings, terrace space for outdoor dining, and a pool. The second level offers a sophisticated dining room opening to the living room below and a renovated eat-in kitchen and family room spanning the entire depth of the house. This level is flooded with natural light by both six north-facing and six south-facing arched windows and a large skylight. The third level features four well-appointed bedrooms, four full bathrooms, and one half bathroom. The primary suite occupies the entire fourth floor. The spacious bedroom and full bathroom are found on the eastern portion, while the western portion offers a wonderful private sitting room and secondary full bathroom. Both the bedroom and sitting room provide convenient access the roof deck, built with Brazilian walnut and offering great flexibility for entertaining. There are sweeping city views of Georgetown, downtown DC, and the Washington Monument. Beautifully proportioned rooms are found on every floor of this exceptional residence, all accessed by two elevators. The additional convenience of two laundry rooms, a wine cellar, three fireplaces, and ample storage are testaments to the thoughtful design of this remarkable property.
