WFP Lists Hidden Georgetown Gem
Elegant Living in the East Village.
A very special upper East Village Georgetown home with garage parking, listed by Washington Fine Properties (WFP) is offered at $3,250,000.
This 3,320 square foot residence with two bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths is a well-cared for treasure with windows on all four sides of the home.
On two lots, it's situated at a higher elevation with private terraces and expansive views to the south east and west.
The gardens, one of the first residential designs by Oehme van Sweden are well established and easily maintained with a variety of plantings to create interest throughout the seasons.
The original floor plan when current owners bought the home was three ensuite bedrooms. From a gracious marbled entry, one is led into an extraordinary living room with high ceilings, French doors leading out to the gardens. The dining room, with lovely fireplace, has access through French doors out to the terrace.
There is an elegant family room, large enough to gather around the fireplace as well as provide space for a home office. The master suite upstairs, above the living room is large with seating area around the fireplace.
Down one step are the living room, kitchen and large guest closet. The large living room with an 11’10” ceiling evokes a French salon, with floor to ceiling windows and French doors all around, and stunning architectural details.
The kitchen, redesigned by noted architect David Schwartz, features superb spatial design, with custom cabinets of white oak with cocobolo trim in a very efficient layout.
The terraces offer total privacy and ample outdoor space for entertaining. From the upper terrace, there is also an enfilade of stairs leading down to French doors opening to the dining room, which is located a few steps down from the entryway.
The garage and two levels of underground interior space are currently used as laundry/storage/closets, as well as a sewing room/craft space and an office. The half bath is on this level. An exterior door leads to outside storage and flagstone stairs to street level.
