Property Description

Desirably located on a prominent street in the sought-after Kalorama neighborhood is this stately brick English Tudor style residence with wonderful views of Rock Creek Park. The house features multiple front gables, decorative Renaissance inspired elaborations and tall windows with additional transoms. Originally built in 1928, the residence retains many of its impressive original architectural details and has been updated to include modernizations throughout. The generous floor plan features exceptionally-scaled rooms, making this the perfect house for entertaining. Similar to that of its neighboring counterparts, the property has been a diplomatic residence for over 50 years and entertained many prominent political figures and diplomats. The house encompasses a warmth and intimacy for comfortable family living, as well as providing ample space and opportunity for grand-scale formal entertaining. The remarkable main level is filled with an abundance of natural light through large windows. An entry vestibule with a coat closet leads to the gracious front foyer, which offers a walk-in coat closet and two separate powder rooms for guests. The impressive living room, which spans the entire length of the house, features a 10’ tray ceiling and an exquisite central fireplace. The formal dining room has a coffered ceiling and an additional fireplace. It provides convenient access to the rear terrace from two sets of glass-paneled French doors. The neighboring gourmet kitchen has high-end appliances and abundant storage space, providing both a butler’s pantry and a walk-in pantry with a secondary refrigerator. The second level features two bedrooms, including the impressive primary suite. The primary bedroom affords a lovely dressing room, additional walk-in closet and secondary closets, an en-suite bathroom with dual vanities, and a private sitting room. The second bedroom on this floor is spacious with an en-suite bathroom. There is a wonderful second level family room or library with built-in bookshelves and a third fireplace. Adjoining the family room is a kitchenette with a stove, sink, beverage refrigerator, and pantry. The uppermost level of the residence provides a multitude of flexibility with five additional bedrooms, three bathrooms, an office, and a sitting room with a wet bar. There is an abundance of storage space on this level, including multiple walk-in closets and two cedar closets. The expansive lower level provides a large recreation room with easy access to the rear terrace and pool. There is a full bathroom, large laundry room with utility sinks, a storage pantry, and an commercial-sized walk-in refrigerator. This level also provides ample storage space and access to the oversized two-car garage. One of the most notable features of this exceptional residence is the private rear grounds, which include a large swimming pool, manicured garden, and a covered patio. A driveway provides additional off-street parking for numerous cars. The residence is just steps from Mitchell Park, Rock Creek Park, and many fine shops and restaurants. It is also a short drive to three major airports. Five former U.S. presidents, including Barack Obama, have resided in Kalorama.
