WFP Lists Spectacular Cleveland Park Georgian Home
Margot Wilson of Washington Fine Properties has listed an 6,700 square foot Cleveland Park Georgian style home for $5,495,000.
Built in 1916 for original owner geologist Sidney Paige, the home was designed by Architect E.D. Ryerson, and built by noted early Cleveland Park Company builder John Simpson, this residence is prominently sited on a desirable corner lot in the shadow of the Washington National Cathedral, at 3100 35th Street, NW.
There is an elegant brick retaining wall, stairway, wide driveway, and an attractive brick patio overlooking the spacious south-facing fenced garden.
Cleveland Park is one of the original "streetcar suburbs," which sprang up on the outskirts of cities across America in the late 19th century. Cleveland Park acquired its name when it became home to the "Summer White House" of President Grover Cleveland, who purchased a home here in 1886.
The neighborhood's location lent a topographical advantage from the denser development in the lower areas of the city, and many of the
homes with their front porches and large windows reflect their original use as summer cottages providing refuge from the relentless heat.
It is home to some of the finest public and private schools in the city, as well as to the National Cathedral and its surrounding grounds.
This five bedroom home has been recently reimagined, expanded, and entirely reconstructed by locally owned residential developer COBA who has retained the architectural integrity of the home while creating an open, bright, and airy modern interior with sleek finishes and meticulous attention to detail.
