This charming NW DC row home in the Bloomingdale Historic District, built in 1895, has retained part of a traditional layout and boasts an abundance of original artisanal details. The home has been renovated and expanded, with a two level addition designed by British architect Bill Bethune. The addition adds a large second living area/office/den/studio. The home reflects warmth and charm, combined with abundant natural light and open modern space. Unique aspects of the home include two mantels, pocket doors, a six panel swing door to the kitchen, original unpainted millwork, and small treasures such as an original gaslamp fixture. Quality updates include the Mahogany front door, hand scraped teak floors throughout, a Jenn Air down draft dual fuel range and Bosch dishwasher, Pella and Jeld-Wen windows, Solatubes for increased natural light, updated electrical panel and heavy up, and a roof that was fully replaced in 2012 (roof on addition new as of 2014). The home has both central air conditioning and efficient radiant heat.Two of the bedrooms are large enough to accommodate king beds. The basement has extra storage, and houses the utilities, such as the new hot water heater and the boiler. It is accessible through an easy to open trap door in the addition.Both red and green line Metros are within a short distance.
