Description

"This one is wonderfully open and set up for today’s lifestyles with an airy floor plan, a sumptuous owner’s suite, a sun-splashed roof deck with jacuzzi, and even a legal rental unit, all in the perfect walkable Dupont location. It’s a favorite!"

It doesn’t get any better than this meticulously renovated four-level Victorian in Dupont Circle. Built in 1900, the brick row house is absolutely turn-key and ready for its next chapter. Every bit of it has been reimagined and improved with an eye to careful detail. The combination of original architectural detail and new modernity is both stunning and seamless, with five bedrooms and 4.5 baths spread out over four levels, including a beautifully finished lower level legal rental unit.

From the tree-lined street, the handsome townhouse enjoys a new front yard with a water feature, irrigation, automated lighting, and recently cleaned and repointed brick façade. Step inside to a gorgeous great room concept, with natural light bathing the wide-plank hardwood floors in a warm sheen. Living and dining areas blend organically into an open gourmet kitchen. Custom floor-to-ceiling white cabinetry, white marble counters and island, and upscale appliances including Viking range and fridge, make this a welcoming place to cook and socialize. The adjacent family room has wood-framed glass doors leading out to both the back deck and private parking.

The multiple private outdoor spaces deserve special recognition. It begins with the aforementioned back deck with recently installed pressure-treated wood flooring, perfect for morning coffee, grilling, or al fresco meals. There’s a lovely front balcony perched on top of the bay overlooking S Street, accessible through the third floor bedroom. The topper is an enormous pressure-treated wood roof deck with outdoor furniture from Room and Board, a gas fire pit, LED lighting, and a state of the art hot tub.

A spacious second-story owner’s suite enjoys a sunny bay for sitting and reading, and an expansive walk-in closet with built-in organizer. The en-suite bath is a marvel with its white subway floor tiles, twin-sink marble vanity, a designer deep-soaking tub and a large frameless glass shower. There’s an additional attractive bedroom with triple windows at this level, along with an en-suite marble bath, and a separate laundry room with full-size washer and dryer. At the top is another full marble bath and a third bedroom with French doors leading out to a lovely balcony. A fabulous lounge with a skylight and a custom wet bar is perfect for games and media. The sublime roof deck is just steps away.

The lowest level is home to a legal two-bedroom, one-bath rental apartment with new laminate flooring. The open main living area is enormous, with a front bay and private entrance. A Euro-style kitchen with stainless steel appliances is set along one wall. Everything about this marvelous downstairs unit is modern, bright and airy. The house is set up with sensors for a Frontpoint security system that only needs to be activated. Also of note is the home’s rear parking pad, a true luxury in the city.

A leafy canopy of trees extends in both directions along S Street NW, affording you a pleasurable stroll through the neighborhood. This northern part of Dupont Circle feels like a quiet and serene pocket of the city, even though it’s incredibly close to restaurants, bakeries, shops, yoga studios, and galleries. This is where exclusive Kalorama and vibrant Dupont come together with an unbeatable Walk Score of 98.

A block east is the 18th Street restaurant row including Anju, Pupatella, Lauriol Plaza and Bar Charley. Head a couple blocks in the other direction and you’ll find all the culinary delights along Connecticut Avenue, such as Bistrot Du Coin, La Tomate, Sette, Northside Tavern, Across the Pond, and the newly opened Mi Casa. It’s just the beginning of incredibly rich and eclectic collection of Washington’s best sit-down and take-out food experiences.

There’s lots more to rave about, from Mitchell Park with its summer movie nights to the Spanish Steps, the S Street Dog Park, the Sunday farmers’ market, indie clothing boutiques, and of course, the iconic Circle itself with its white marble fountain. The Dupont Metro with its Red Line service is conveniently close as is Dawson’s Market. Your own private parking with room for two smaller vehicles or one larger SUV, also allows you to motor wherever it is that you need or wish to go.
