This delightful property, a Nantucket-style farmhouse in the middle of the city, is the very definition of timeless charm. With its wide-plank pine flooring, three fireplaces, and three full bathrooms it was constructed in the 1840s as two distinct homes. The original and classic houses were later merged into a seamless, expansive house and garden in the 1920s by renowned architects Horace Peaslee and Rose Greeley (See Virtual Tour for a short history of the property). The rear of the home is configured in a "U" shape, effectively bringing the outdoors inside, with all main level living areas providing access to the large brick and fieldstone surrounded private garden and terraced patio.
The main floor contains the primary suite, and a second bedroom, while the upper-level features three additional bedrooms. The living room and dining room have cathedral ceilings, and there is a library with a wet bar and full bathroom currently used as a home office/study. The St Charles kitchen is a notable feature and the new kitchen and first floor bathroom flooring reflect the classic Georgetown style. 3410 Volta Place is located steps away from the Visitation School, Georgetown University, and the ballfields, tennis courts, and swimming facilities of Volta Park. Bonus—you'll love the “secret” door overlooking the living room!
