The penthouse at 1449 N Street NW is a uniquely special offering of strikingly modern design wrapped in a charming, turn-of-the-century Victorian row house. Dramatic open spaces under skylit airy ceilings create the ultimate environment in which to live and entertain.

No detail has been overlooked to create a truly one-of-a-kind space in this vibrant urban location.

Upon entry, is a sleek granite and stainless steel chef’s kitchen, which features a SubZero refrigerator and wine refrigerator, KitchenAid gas range and microwave, dual-drawer Fisher-Paykel dishwasher, and a large center island with under-mounted sink.

Extensive custom cabinetry houses all the culinary necessities, and a full wall of built-in wine storage will showcase your collection. Two-story skylit ceilings create an airy and comfortable space bathed in natural light.

Just beyond the kitchen is a convenient powder room and coat closet, and guests will enjoy the luxurious guest suite with private marble bath.

Up a few stairs is the stunning, sun-filled raised main living area complete with gas fireplace and large south-facing windows overlooking tree-lined N Street. A unique, “floating” loft-style office overlooks the main level and boasts a generous storage closet with custom shelving.

There's garage parking in a building across the street. Hard to find “garages” when you’re talking “converted row houses”.
