Tucked away in Washington’s prestigious Kent neighbourhood, this serene, architectural masterpiece combines the elegance of yesterday with the luxury of today. The 6,100 square foot residence was built in 1937 and recently sold for $2.7 million after listing in 2018 for $3.7 million. It was most recently on the market for $3 million. The home offers more than 6,100 square feet of world-class living on three levels. Stroll through the mature grounds and landscaped gardens to the gated tennis court and swimming pool. Take in the sweeping views of Battery Kemble Park and let the unmatched tranquility of this urban oasis melt the world away. Enter through the wood-arched doorway and marvel at the 25-foot, hand-painted vaulted turret, custom staircase, beamed ceilings, and solid wood floors. A 20-foot cathedral ceiling and stone fireplace adorn the great room with its towering windows framing a lush, tree-lined view in every direction.
The formal dining room, with its impressive bay window, will inspire dinner parties and family feasts, while the open kitchen, with its hi-tech appliances and expertly-crafted design, will make every meal an experience. The cozy library alongside its walls of glass and rich, custom millwork is the perfect spot to unwind with a great book or cup of tea. Opening onto its own terrace and garden, the first-floor master suite is a private retreat all its own. The top-level includes a second master suite with a private terrace. Two additional large bedrooms, each with a full bath and walk-in closet, are separated by a convenient study room. Completing this perfect offering is the impressive garden level, where more than 1,800 square feet of living space awaits. There is a custom gym and a recreation room with a fireplace and wet bar. The adjacent hallway leads through the mudroom and into the attached two-car garage. Making perfect use of space, there is a nanny suite, a large laundry room, an additional storage room, and the mechanical room. This Chain Bridge Road location is a stone’s throw from the Potomac River and the prime Washington neighbourhoods of Georgetown, the Palisades and Spring Valley. The property was on the marker for $3 million with Trent Heminger of Compass.
