Showings by appointment, Buyer registration required. Sited on one of Kalorama's most prestigious blocks with botanical-lined streets and Historic Wardman architecture, this exquisite Federal Colonial will leave you spellbound as historic personality mingles with bespoke design. Built in 1922, this shaded, brick-wrapped home welcomes with a prim and proper facade, while inside, 5,130 square feet are a multi-sensory delight as maximalist old-Floridian charm takes center stage, reminiscent of the Kips Bay showhouse. Throughout four floors of superbly renovated living vistas, explore to find chocolate-hued hardwoods, show-stopping checkered tile, cozy fireplaces, polished hardware, and endless built-ins. Sunlight soars in from the dining room wall of floor-to-ceiling windows and French doors, while ceilings and interior walls are lined with luxurious papers from Gucci, Fornasetti, and Brunschwig & Fils. Display conversation-sparking treasures in the living room, unwind-away Sundays within your restful library, invite friends for film screenings in the media room and escape to the walk-out basement where your “room with a view” features floor-to-ceiling windows and artful studio lights. In the posh chef's kitchen, complete with high-end appliances, pack picnics for strolls to local parks and fill the home with the savory aromas of favorite heirloom recipes. Serve dinner in the cupboard-clad dining room or dine al fresco where two distinguished patios dot manicured gardens shaded by blossoming trees. Here, host Summer fundraisers with wine paired with the sounds of the city, or simply enjoy spring breezes after Embassy cultural events. Five bedrooms plus three and two half baths envelop guests with care and style. Complete chores in a playful laundry room, screen films in the theater, then escape to the primary suite where the sitting room and marble bathroom are warmed by private firelight. A slice of textured, bold, and joy-filled heaven amongst neighboring jewels, Kalorama is a singular peaceful refuge for diplomats, ambassadors, and ex-presidents. From home, Rock Creek Park, favorite shops, and eateries entertain, while the Georgetown Waterfront, electric Dupont, and downtown Washington DC await.
