3 Beds | 3.5 Baths | 1,681 Sq Ft | 1900 Year Built | Contract
Superb late 19th-century townhouses primarily designed in the Italianate style, proximity to an intimate urban park, a quiet setting, a short walk to Logan Circle and several important cultural landmarks within the city’s urban core, are factors that make this location in Shaw extremely desirable. Like much of the residential architecture of contiguous neighborhoods, the historic fabric of Shaw was preserved, and was sensitively re-imagined in the recent past, to create interior spaces that suit contemporary lifestyles. This house was designed with a piano nobile; that is, the main rooms of the house are accessed above street level. This plan was developed to offer not only a sense of approach to the interior, but also to aid in cooling it during Washington’s hot and humid summers before the advent of air conditioning. While the façade has maintained its original appearance, a new rear façade was created in the Bauhaus style. The entrance hall is shared with only one other unit, and it creates a feeling of one’s own private space. The flexibility of the floor plan, the scale of the rooms, 10-foot ceilings, and approximately 1,745 square feet of living space are among the more exceptional qualities of this property. Its split level arrangement provides greater separation of public and private spaces and offers a character not typical in condominiums. A bedroom is located on the first floor facing French Street, as well as an en suite bathroom and dressing room. This room could be used as either the principal bedroom, guest room, or office. The central living space is open and gracious offering views onto the garden through a curtain wall, punctuated with French doors, and the convenience of secure parking is just beyond. A few steps down from the first floor, there is a powder room and studio with separate entrance that offers a kitchenette, bedroom, full bathroom, and additional storage. The lower level has a third bedroom and full bathroom, as well as an office/den.
