Georgetown is so often associated with history — its quiet, tree-lined streets are framed by homes hundreds of years old. This makes 2705 Olive Street NW all the more special. Built in 2000 by Jim Gibson of universally acclaimed Gibson Builders, this immaculate Phillips Row townhome is a rare blend of modernity, space, and an unparalleled location in the heart of Georgetown’s East Village. The timeless cream-colored brick facade is accented by rich, dark shutters and gates, while the stunning pergola sets the tone for an ethereal floor plan made up of the finest workmanship spanning 4,100 square feet. Upon entry, the formal living room boasts a gas fireplace and opens up to a banquet-sized dining area. Thick baseboards, extensive crown molding, flush air vents and discrete recessed lighting are all signs of meticulous attention to detail — a recurring theme in this home. The kitchen, for instance, unlike so many other homes in the city, has natural light streaming in from all sides. Top-of-the-line appliances, granite countertops, and cherry cabinets combine to form a premium culinary experience to delight any chef. The adjacent breakfast area has direct access to the rear terrace via Pella doors. Upstairs, the owner’s suite is made cozy by a private gas fireplace and is served by a sumptuous spa-inspired marble bath with a separate jetted tub and walk-in glass shower. The secondary bedroom on this level is also its own oasis, with a private ensuite bath. A vast bedroom suite with vaulted ceilings on the third level can serve as a home fitness center, bonus space, or a secluded office ideal for remote work. A large recreational room anchored by custom built-ins is the centerpiece of the lower level. A fourth bedroom suite, perfect for in-laws or an au pair, is enhanced by private outdoor access. In the rear, the brick and flagstone terrace is walled and shaded by dense shrubbery, affording total privacy for outdoor entertaining or dining al-fresco. Two-car gated parking completes the picture. One of the newest townhomes in East Village, 2705 Olive Street NW blends craftsmanship with practicality and a world-class Georgetown location, setting itself apart as undeniably one of the finest examples of city living within the Capital Region.
