This impressive semi-detached brick residence is ideally located in Kalorama, a neighborhood well-known for being home to notable presidents, diplomats, and dignitaries. The house has undertaken a complete top to bottom renovation and expansion with award-winning architect Christian Zapatka. No detail was overlooked in this masterful collaboration between Zapatka and notable Witters & Bank, Inc. builders. The house was completely redesigned and reconfigured to feature graciously scaled formal entertaining rooms, as well as casual family living spaces, all enhanced with custom details of the highest quality. The house is fully above grade and is flooded with an abundance of natural sunlight from exposures on three sides, magnified by the double-glazed full height windows and a beautiful central circular skylight atop the stairwell. There is also an elevator that accesses all four floors. The elegant entry hall has beautiful marble floors and provides an uninterrupted axis to the rear of the home. A sunny front office with built-ins and a nearby powder room with a charming reception/waiting area are perfectly positioned off of the foyer. Towards the back of the house, the well-appointed gourmet kitchen features a large center island, custom cabinetry, Cambria quartz countertops, Carrara marble backsplash, and high-end appliances including SubZero, Wolf, and Miele. The kitchen opens to a lovely dining area with built-in shelving and a wood-burning fireplace with marble surround. The kitchen also adjoins the wonderful family room, which directly accesses the rear garden and terrace. There is a sizable laundry room also found of this floor. A custom-made curved central staircase with a walnut hand railing and tapered pickets leads to the gracious second level. A sophisticated formal dining room is found towards the front of house, currently used as an office, complemented with three large windows, built-in shelving, and a gas fireplace. The attractive formal living room with garden views has an additional fireplace and adjoins a lovely sunroom with two sets of French doors to the private rear balcony. For added convenience, there is an additional powder room on this floor, as well as a butler’s pantry with ample storage space, a sink, and refrigerator. The primary suite fully encompasses the third floor and offers a generous bedroom with an expansive walk-in closet and a charming private sitting area with built-ins. The spa-inspired primary bathroom is wonderfully appointed with Thassos marble bath surround, quartz countertops, and Waterworks fixtures. Additionally, there is a primary office/dressing room that captures beautiful sunlight and provides a secondary bathroom for primary use. The fourth floor offers two additional bedroom suites, both of which are spacious and have large closets. The attractive slate terrace is exceptionally private and wonderful for entertaining with beautifully designed professional landscaping by Jane MacLeish. There is also an oversized detached two-car garage with additional storage space.
