A home like this doesn't come along often. Gracing a level corner lot on a tree-lined street with sidewalks, this wonderful city colonial offers suburban tranquility in the heart of Northwest DC. The stately brick facade, copper-capped bay windows, natural slate tile roof, and rare front loading two-car garage distinguish the curb presence. Inside, classic architectural details fuse with modern eclectic touches and old-world charm to create an atmosphere that's at once vibrant and elegant. Golden hardwood oak floors, plantation shutters, built-in bookshelves, and custom millwork add warmth and richness. Main level highlights include an entry foyer with coat closet, a formal living room with a refined mantle and marble surround, a separate dining room with bay window views, a cheerful kitchen with a door to the rear, a delightful adjacent breakfast room with integrated cabinetry and a discreet powder room, and a fabulous sun-filled family room with dual-sided gas fireplace, floor-to-ceiling windows, and sliding glass door access to the rear grounds. Upstairs, the second level boasts a dazzling spacious owner's suite with a gorgeous renovated bath and walk-in closet dressing room, two additional sizable bedrooms (one that currently serves as an office with custom built-ins and two work stations), another beautifully renovated marble bath with glass shower enclosure, and a linen closet. A simply enchanting third level suite features the fourth bedroom, a separate sitting room, a full bath with vintage touches, dainty period light fixtures, and ample storage in the eaves. Downstairs, the day-lit lower level offers a freshly painted neutral palette, new designer flooring throughout, an authentic wagon wheel stair railing, stylish new light fixtures, a large versatile recreation room, a sweet half bath with window, a terrific storage and laundry room, and walk-up stairs to the rear grounds. Awaiting in the fenced rear yard is the most captivating exterior living and entertaining space. Extending the full width of the house is a stunning brick patio surrounded by lovely low-maintenance perennial gardens. A striped awning enhances both function and aesthetics. Between two Red Line metro stops and blocks to Wisconsin Avenue's phenomenal array of shops, restaurants, and venues, this location is superb.
