Sette Osteria Restaurant in Dupont Circle

The Perfect Mix of Privacy and Proximity

This wonderful property sits in a coveted section of Dupont, just a couple of blocks south of the circle itself on a leafy one-block long, one-way street. You'll enjoy being tucked away just enough, yet with an exceptional proximity to the Metro, restaurants and shops, Georgetown, West End, and Rock Creek Park.

Located on a quiet, one-way street in historic Dupont Circle, this vintage rowhouse has been completely and thoughtfully transformed. The gut renovation and redesign from KUBE Architecture has brought the home fully into the present with whitewashed wooden floors throughout, huge windows, and open-space concepts. The main level of the south-facing home presents an extended living area with exposed white brick, a custom wooden entertainment nook, and recessed overhead lighting that complements the natural illumination.

The dining area has a coffered ceiling and Arturo Alvarez designed lighting. A powder room with marble floor and Duravit cabinetry is cleverly hidden under the stairs. The open cook’s kitchen is a stunning showcase with white high gloss cabinetry, marble floors and countertop, glass doored feature cabinet, tempered-glass backsplashes, under-cabinet lighting, and high-end stainless-steel appliances. French doors lead out to an enchanting rear patio with an outdoor kitchen, bluestone flooring, and cedar horizontal fencing.

Stunning modernist stairs ascend to private quarters, with frosted glass bedroom doors allowing natural light to spread seamlessly. A splendid primary suite boasts triple windows, lots of closet space, and Contardi Manhattan swing-arm wall sconces. The remodeled ensuite bath features slate floors and walls, Duravit cabinetry, white quartz vanity, and a remarkable glass door wet room with shower, soaking tub, and Graff fixtures. A second bedroom is at the opposite end, along with a remodeled bath featuring a frameless shower and glass tile.

An incredible open workspace is at the very top, with a giant window wall at one end, full-height bookcases, and two built-in desks for both seating standing options. Step outside to an exquisite wooden roof deck with planters, the perfect place to unwind or brainstorm outside of the box. The lowest level was also redesigned by KUBE, resulting in a sleek studio apartment complete with a certificate of occupancy. This light-filled space includes a gorgeous open kitchen with glossy white cabinetry and stainless-steel appliances, a full bath, and private entrance, and is ideal for rental income or guest quarters.

Extensive extras include frontloading Maytag washers and dryers in both the main residence and studio, LED mood lighting, new roof and solar panels, new doors and windows, three Ethernet-powered video cameras, Cat-6 Ethernet outlets throughout, upgraded HVAC, and two outside storage sheds. With its high ceilings, airy ambiance, and chic minimalism, this marvelous modern renovation leaves no stone unturned.

Dupont Circle, the Quintessential Washington Experience

Tucked into a secluded one-way street with cute brick sidewalks and canopies of trees, the home is close to Rock Creek Park and Rose Park, and strolling distance to Dupont’s many fabulous restaurants as well as the Metro. With a Walk Score of 98, you’ll be in the heart of a leafy residential enclave with vibrant attractions in every direction. Enjoy the Francis Pool in summer and snowball fights in the Circle in winter! Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, Streets Market, the Dupont Circle Farmers’ Market, West End, and Georgetown are all close by.
