Description

This distinguished historic residence, designed by prolific Washington architect Waddy B Wood, encompasses nearly 3,800 sqft and has three parking spaces. It features graciously proportioned rooms, welcoming living spaces and abundant sunshine. Built in 1898, this grand, freestanding home features original architectural elements such as detailed woodwork, plaster molding, deep window sills and expansive pocket doors, yet it has all the amenities and finishes needed for modern life, remote work, and easy entertaining. With two surface parking spaces, detached single-car garage, and within easy walking distance to numerous restaurants, shops, parks and the Metro, this light-filled residence offers the ultimate luxury city living experience paired with unparalleled convenience. The house has recently undergone a full top-to-bottom renovation, with entirely new plumbing, electrical, heating and cooling systems; newly-milled antique heart-pine floors throughout; new tin roof; three and a half beautiful bathrooms with Italian tile and Kohler fixtures; spacious custom kitchen; six refinished wood burning fireplaces with relined chimneys; fully restored and/or new windows and doors; designer light fixtures in every room; new garden irrigation system; and fresh interior and exterior paint. The solid construction throughout the house makes it a quiet oasis in the city. A sophisticated front vestibule with marble flooring showcases the impressive mahogany front door with custom wrought-iron detailing. A welcoming foyer opens to an elegant study and a generous family room, both of which have fireplaces. There is also a full bathroom on this floor, providing flexibility for multigenerational living. The family room opens to a beautifully-designed rear garden, which is exceptionally private and perfect for entertaining. Continue to the second level, which has nearly 10+GG ceilings, oversized windows and an open-plan feel with natural flow between rooms. The stunning dining space sits naturally between the sun-filled living room and the renovated gourmet kitchen. Hidden pocket doors offer the flexibility to create a more formal dining experience. The bright and inviting kitchen features abundant storage, breakfast nook, Mouser custom cabinetry, Calacatta marble counters, Bertazzoni appliances, and a large center island. This floor also features a lovely private powder room. The upper levels provide four additional bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a library, laundry, and sizable media or playroom. The peaceful, spacious primary suite has a fireplace, impressive closet, and luxurious spa-inspired bathroom with dual vanities, frameless glass shower, and separate soaking tub. The library has floor-to-ceiling built-in bookshelves and a spectacular limestone fireplace created by two master stone carvers of the National Cathedral. All additional bedrooms capture inviting natural sunlight and have ample closet space. The loft-style top floor has an oversized skylight and dramatic demilune window with treetop views, making it the perfect home office, media room or family space, with generous additional storage. Original architect Waddy Wood designed countless residential and government buildings in the Washington area, including the Woodrow Wilson House in Kalorama, the Car Barn in Georgetown, the Department of the Interior and The National Museum of Women in the Arts. The house was constructed for prestigious geologist Arthur Keith, who lived in the house with his wife until shortly before his death in 1944. Numerous changes were made to the house over the subsequent decades, before the property was bought by the current owners in 1989 and restored to its original grandeur through a series of renovations and upgrades over the last 30 years. Their efforts have culminated with the current restoration aimed at seeing the house into the next century as one of Washington+GGs most impressive residences.
