Special, SURPRISE! This home is MUCH bigger than it appears. What appears to be a modest 2-story porchfront facade conceals a 2600+ sf Home, w/ quality modern finishes, a bright, inviting interior layout, and extras such as a loft penthouse bedroom/guest room w/ E/W roof decks & flagstone patio for multiple uses! Location is near perfect, walking distance to all that is great about Capitol Hill. One of a kind Home, with Original (but restored to an historic esthetic) Front Facade w/ porch, and Updated Inside plus extensive new addition!

A short hall conceals the marble powder room, and leads to the upscale designer kitchen! The kitchen features high quality stainless appliances, stone countertops and European styled cabinetry. Warmed by a gas fireplace, and lit by more cove lighting, multiple glass brick accent windows and a wall of french doors, the large Living Room provides much space for entertaining, as it flows naturally and gracefully to the deep flagstone patio. The patio features a pergola 'dividing' it from the parking space, accessible via an automatic rolltop door.Up the wide stairs, the second floor, offers an arrangement of cove lights and spot lights, three large dual paned windows and a custom built Walk-in Closet & Dressing Room.

This "skybox" room sports multiple skylights + a wet bar (complete with wine refrigerator), with access to TWO roof decks: one facing East & one West. It can be used as a place for quiet contemplation or joyous celebration. The soft modern style comes from the choice of distinctive QUALITY choices, and can be seen in the unique ceramic tiles, decorative stone, hardwood floors, cove lighting, and dual paned windows that grace each room, while remote ceiling fans, recessed lighting and closets with adaptable multiple shelving enhance each bedroom.Even more attention has been given to the areas you can't see!
