The eloquence of a Classic Foursquare lies in its proportion and scale, it truly speaks to our appreciation of symmetry and order. This Foursquare has been lovingly cultivated, with gleaming original wood floors, original wood millwork throughout including those glorious, oversized parlor doors we all love! The design emphasizes light and energy. You will appreciate the soaring wood windows that punctuate the space with an exquisite regularity. As you enter from the expansive porch, the detailed woodwork of the foyer will leave you in awe, and the home’s positive energy will pull you in. On your right you will encounter the large living room featuring a wood-burning fireplace with ever more beautiful woodwork and a granite surround. The living room opens to the dining room which can comfortably host 2 or 20! The gourmet kitchen boasts a great deal of storage with custom cabinets and granite counters. There is also a perfect breakfast nook that looks out onto the deck and includes a catering island with a second sink and wine and bar area. The kitchen also showcases a neat 4-lite cupola with beadboard added accent lighting.- be sure to look up! The first floor is rounded out by the den space which has proved to be a nexus for relaxed family and friend time.
The wide central stair leads you to the bedroom level where three large bedrooms branch off the central spacious hall. One bedroom has been adapted to house the washing machine and dryer. There are also plumbing rough-ins for a 4th level washer and dryer- so this huge room can return to a bedroom if you prefer. The bathroom has been updated with an impressive shower with body-sprays, glass walls and door and double- bowl sink. The owner’s bedroom incorporated nearly one- half of the expansive second floor- with a walk-in closet and sun porch addition. The wide stairs continue to the 4th level housing two more bedrooms, each with two deep walk-in closets and an additional full bathroom with soaking tub.
All of this sits atop a wonderfully spacious 2-bedroom with a sizable, shared living and dining room and full kitchen. What is so nice about this space is that it too is wrapped in windows and has high ceilings- it has a separate side-entrance for privacy which allows the home to accommodate many, very comfortably. (There is no CofO for this space.)
The backyard is enticing with its level lawn perfect for soccer practice or lawn games- and separate patio ideal for both small and large gatherings! The lot is just perfect! And you will feel so sheltered coming home to your 2-car garage where no one will believe you actually live in DC AND have an additional 3 parking spaces alongside your brick garage! ALL this- not quite 2 blocks from Rock Creek Park’s Cater Barron Fitzgerald Tennis Center, and track & fields. Minutes away from tranquil Rock Creeks and their dedicated walking and biking trails. Convenient to public transport and central commuter arteries.
