If you love to entertain and have company, this stand-alone four-story brick Colonial can make your entertaining dreams a reality. Built in 1921, this home on DC’s Gold Coasts includes a 5,721 square foot lot with six bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms for your family and your guests. There is a large, open space for entertaining, as well as an addition in back. The early-twentieth-century charm is shown in the beautiful architectural details, which include coffered ceilings, crown molding, arched entryways, French doors, and spectacular hardwood floors.
Enter through the front door into the main entrance, a large foyer flanked on either side by stately parlor rooms, each with its own fireplace. Beyond the front parlor, with additional access from the home’s main hallway, is the grand dining room with coffered ceiling. The dining room is ideally located across from the large, separate kitchen, and also connects to the enclosed porch. You will also find a powder room off the main hallway, for guests and your own convenience.
The second level boasts four bright bedrooms, including the master bedroom, with its own ensuite bathroom. There is potential to combine the master and southeast bedrooms to create a massive master suite, spanning the depth of the house. The two generously-sized other bedrooms are north-facing and share a Jack-and-Jill bathroom. A lovely surprise comes in the form of a second-floor porch that spans the house, overlooking the large backyard, and is accessible from the rear bedrooms.
The third floor of the home features two additional bedrooms, a full bath, and two spacious storage rooms. The lower level houses the home’s mechanicals, still offering an abundance of space for expansion of the home’s living area, an accessory apartment, or workshop. As if the home was not enough, the property where it sits is large and level, offering endless potential for creating spaces to enjoy with family and friends. There is also a driveway from 16th Street and a large garage, accessible from the alley.
The ideal Gold Coast location provides ease in commuting downtown, or even to Bethesda or Silver Spring. The 16th Street address, alongside Rock Creek Park, adds a sense of luxury. There you can enjoy seemingly countless miles of trails for hiking, biking, and running, the Carter Baron tennis courts, open fields, and a track for running or walking.
