Beaux Arts Meets 21st Century in Kalorama
On a quiet corner bordering the beloved Spanish Steps in Kalorama, a newly restored, artfully updated 1910 Beaux Arts townhouse awaits at 2200 Decatur Place NW. It is truly a rare residence in Kalorama where corner properties are quite scarce.
In 2015, the entire home was gutted and all new plumbing, electrical, HVAC, entertainment and other vital systems were installed. The skylit kitchen was lavished with a complete Thermador appliance suite including: double convection ovens, warming drawer / proofer, microwave drawer, 6-burner cooktop, range hood with built-in heat lamps, counter-depth refrigerator with ice maker, and dishwasher. The entire house was upgraded with Kohler plumbing fixtures. Marble floors flow throughout the first-floor kitchen, dining room and entrance foyer, contrasted buy rich hardwood in the living room with wet bar. In the dining room, the ceilings are coffered; in the living room, cove lighting encourages relaxed comfort.
The second and third floors are all about comfort and privacy. The second-floor master suite is oversized with high ceilings, a 50 square feet walk-in closet and huge ensuite bath with sit-down steam shower, rain shower, deep soaking tub, double vanity sinks and floors and walls clad in Carrara marble. Another full bath and second bedroom/office complete level two. Two more bedrooms and full bath round out the third floor that is graced by a private roof top terrace serviced by a convenient wet bar.
The lower level offers a complete in-law suite or an income-generating apartment complete with one bedroom, one bathroom, living room, kitchen and patio. The lower level has a separate private entrance, as well as access to the main level above.
The Splendor Is Refreshed
The masonry repointed, architectural details restored, 2200 Decatur Place NW dominates its corner. Its windows provide amazing views of its neighbors which share the border of the Spanish Steps — the Thai Embassy Residence, Chinese Embassy Residence, and the Dominican Embassy.
Exterior amenities include enclosed front and rear patios, plus a large third level roof deck with views of monuments, the Historic Spanish Steps and the streets below.
Kalorama — View The Beauty Of A Charmed Location
Notably one of the most affluent neighborhoods in Washington, Kalorama was primarily developed between 1897 and 1931. The name means beautiful view in Greek and lives up to its name everywhere one looks. 2200 Decatur is a three-minute walk to Connecticut Avenue's bustling shopping and restaurants. The Metro's Dupont Circle stop is just steps away as is the Sunday farmer’s market.
You're literally in the center of it all – minutes to Georgetown and Dupont Circle with easy access to parks, tree-lined streets, galleries and museums.
