Property Description

This is luxury living at its most refined, conceived and executed by celebrated DC designer Lori Graham. Located in the sought-after Shaw neighborhood, this stately, four-story Victorian embraces the home's history while incorporating today's most modern amenities. Grand proportions and natural light accentuate interiors that blend contemporary finishes with nods to turn-of-the-century architecture. High ceilings are punctuated by period molding and trim and designer light fixtures. Gray-stained oak flooring, laid in a herringbone pattern, is a classic foil to the crisp, contemporary white walls. A dramatic, 15-foot island, topped with black-and-white marble and a cascading, waterfall edge, anchors an envy-inducing, eat-in, chef's kitchen with walls of windows, floor-to-ceiling cabinetry, and Calacatta Gold marble counters with a matching 30-inch backsplash. The custom, handcrafted stair railing leads to the second level, where one of two master suites sits alongside two additional bedrooms, another full bath, and a swanky laundry room. A show-stopping owner's suite on the third level boasts appointments rivaling the best boutique hotels, including: a fireplace, skylight, private terrace, deep-soaking tub, and a Calacatta-marble-clad walk-in shower. Down the hall, a convenient, sun-soaked family room, with breakfast kitchen and powder room, has style and finishes that echo the kitchen below. Floating stairs lead to an automated hatch that opens onto a rooftop deck surrounded by a glass-panel railing overlooking the DC skyline. A garden level, with separate, front-and-back entrances, is equipped with custom cabinetry, a marble-topped kitchenette, full-size w/d, full bath with dual sinks, one bedroom and a separate flex space, which would make an ideal home office, second bedroom, playroom or fitness space. A terrace and deck in the back provide this home with more than 1,000-sq.ft. of private, outdoor space, while the two-car garage, two additional parking spaces, SMART features with voice controls, and a built-in security system allows future owners the easiest and chicest everyday living around.
