Like many of its elegant neighbors in Kalorama, this residence typifies the best elements of revival-style architecture. Essentially a Normandy style in its composition, it also has the vernacular feeling of one of the great English country houses designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens. The Normandy style is characterized by steep, conical roofs and an asymmetrical plan. A sensibility that joins both England in its Tudor roots and the continent by its French Norman details, this residence expresses the unmistakable hand of architect John J. Whelan, designer of many luxury homes and embassy residences. Prominently sited on an eminence, this property occupies one of highest points in Kalorama, with views of the National Cathedral and the city beyond. Built in 1927 and clad in Scottish brick bond, the house showcases an impeccable recent renovation, an original slate roof, towering chimneys, and an overall charming historic appeal. This stunning oasis is in all regards a private one, including its superb formal gardens. The main entrance is reached by way of a curved, stone walkway surrounded by mature plantings. A welcoming, gracious hallway leads to the large living room with fireplace and balcony, elegant dining room, powder room, main central staircase, and a recently renovated gourmet kitchen/family wing with spectacular Clive Christian cabinetry and millwork. The kitchen features Imperial Danby marble surfaces and floors and appliances of the highest quality including a Viking six-burner range, Subzero 30? dual refrigerators, handmade faucets from P.E. Guerin, Rohl Fireclay sink, Eurofase lighting, and a Sonos sound system. The main level offers a fine architectural plan with an easy flow connecting the rooms designed for entertaining to the generously-sized paved, private terrace. Interior finishes include hardwood floors and custom 100% silk Highland Court drapes and Austrian shades by Robert Allen. The terrace features attractive landscaping and is illuminated by Bevolo custom brass lanterns. The original format of the windows is responsible for the luminous quality of the house at all times of the day. French doors create a seamless connection to the outdoors - a perfect setting for entertaining guests in large or small groups. An expansive principal suite with two attached, luxurious bathrooms as well as a guest bedroom/study with sunroom and third bedroom are all found on the second floor. The walls are sumptuously upholstered in Cowtan & Tout silk and include trim by Farrow & Ball. The bathrooms are clad in marble, outfitted with Waterworks fixtures, and finished with the finest materials. A walk-in closet and an additional closet make the bedroom suite functional as well as a true retreat. The third level offers three bedrooms with large walk-in-closets and storage. The lower level is fully equipped with a Sonos home-theater lounge, a one-car garage with ample storage, and a laundry room. Well-designed systems include three-zone HVAC, a camera security system, multi-room Sonos sound, and Samsung smart televisions. Kalorama is close to Georgetown, Rock Creek Park, museums, the Kennedy Center, downtown DC, and Reagan National Airport. It is characterized by magnificent pre-war architecture and old-growth trees and has been home to past presidents, dignitaries, and embassies for more than 100 years.
