A La Carte
The Book Hill neighborhood celebrated this weekend with its 14th annual Georgetown French Market.
Sidewalks along Wisconsin Avenue from O Street to Reservoir Road filled with a colorful, eclectic mix of designer wares.
Local boutiques, antique shops, cafés, and galleries featured art, fashion, jewelry, home furnishings, and tasty treats.
Bienvenue à Pillar & Post, a British antiques & home accessories shop officially opening in a few weeks!
Georgetowners celebrated the upcoming 2017 Georgetown House Tour Wednesday evening at the home of Under Armour founder and CEO Kevin Plank and his wife D.J. (Desiree Jacqueline).
The historic residence, former home of Ambassador David Bruce, has recently undergone a spectacular renovation by the team of Barnes Vanze Architects, Pyramid Builders and Patrick Sutton Interior Design.
The Planks graciously opened their home and gardens, serving a lavish reception for over 450 patrons, sponsors, hosts and friends.
Established in 2001 by Frida Burling, the Patrons’ Party benefits the St. John’s ministries to homeless adults and children, the unemployed, senior citizens, and young children in DC schools.
Ticket to the Georgetown House Tour, held this Saturday, April 29th from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm, can be purchased online or on Saturday at St. John's Episcopal Church at 3240 O Street in Georgetown.
"We wanted a place that's Georgetown adjacent, large enough for a family, with room for an au pair suite ... and the in-laws, with parking," explained Washington Fine Properties' Daryl Judy as he enthusiastically gave The Georgetown Dish a sneak peek of this latest luxury residential renovation.
Together with long-time sales partner Kimberly Casey, VICI Investments and Akseizer Design Group, Judy and his stellar team unveiled "a new modern transitional which honors traditional elements and yet has a clean modern perspective."
With over 3,300 square feet, this extraordinary property, listed at $1,850,000, has five bedrooms, four-and-a-half baths and includes two-car parking. "It was a tiny house," said Rory Byrnes of VICI Investments, the developer who specializes in restoring historic homes and creating attractive functional spaces for urban living. "We blew out the back, created a vestibule and added a beautiful in-law suite." The renovation, which took under a year, is now the jewel in a block of charming homes along Reservoir Road.
All the finishes were selected by Akseizer Design Group. We especially loved the matte black touches throughout the home, from the octagonal door knobs and hinges to the octagonal kitchen cabinet pulls and faucet. And that gorgeous Bianco Gioia marble kitchen countertop with waterfall finish and matching backsplash.
Integrated throughout the home are smart home products including Nest thermostats and Samsung SmartThings control lighting. There's also a bonus room on the third floor with 9' 4" ceilings and a wet bar.
Come by this weekend and meet Kimberly Casey and Daryl Judy. They're hosting an Open House April 8 and 9th from 1:00 to 4:00 pm both Saturday and Sunday. For a preview, click here for the virtual tour.
