The home at 2750 Q Street is a rare jewel in historic Georgetown’s East Village. Set well back from the street behind a handsome wrought iron gate, it is exceedingly private and almost invisible to passers-by. The property was originally owned by the American diplomat and philanthropist Robert Woods Bliss and his wife Mildred, who also owned and developed the estate at Dumbarton Oaks to house their extensive art collection.
The current home is beautifully designed, with lovely architectural detailing and large windows overlooking multiple terraces and outdoor seating areas. Its versatile floor plan makes it an ideal home for different family configurations. On the entry level are elegant living and dining rooms, a generously proportioned kitchen with adjacent breakfast room, a powder room and a spacious office with a full bath that could also be used as first floor bedroom suite. There is a separate bedroom wing on either side of the house: a primary suite, accessible by ELEVATOR or stairway, on one side, with a luxurious bath and two walls of closets; and two additional bedrooms with a full bath, reached by a second staircase on the other side of the house. The arrangement allows for maximum privacy and flexibility, and is ideal for houseguests, older children or live-in help. The home has lush green views from almost every window, landscaped terraces in front and on either side, and a private DRIVEWAY with space for 2 CARS. This is an extraordinary property, beautifully situated in one of the city's premier residential neighborhoods.
