If elegance must be learned, then this home is a very quick study! Welcome to 2844 Albemarle Street, supremely situated in the ultra coveted Forest Hills neighborhood of northwest Washington, DC. Expertly expanded and elegantly enhanced, this six bedroom, four and one half bath home lives in a wonderfully modern fashion while maintaining its original character, detail, and sophistication. The original home’s gorgeous living and dining room give nod to a more gracious era and are appointed with marvelous moldings, beautiful built-ins, a wood burning fireplace with an incredible marble mantle. There’s even a great office/study along with a chicly styled powder room. A brilliant addition melds beautifully with the home's initial design, and creates an all important and wonderfully scaled family room that opens onto delightful tiered decks. This stellar space is clad with a great wall of custom shelving and bar cabinet and calls out for relaxing evenings at home (or parties with lots of happy guests!) Tranquil and verdant views from its plentiful windows and French doors encompass the room. The canopy of mature trees that seems to extend endlessly into Rock Creek Park really is breathtaking!
A gorgeous breakfast room was also added to the stylish kitchen during a 2005 expansion, while the second story gained a true primary bedroom suite with its own en suite bathroom and excellent closets in 2015. Genius! Four other large bedrooms and two additional baths round out the upper floors. The finished upper level is included in the count and can serve as the home’s fifth bedroom or function as an excellent office or sun-filled playroom. The lower level has just been refreshed with gorgeous new floors and boasts a great in-law suite with separate bedroom, living and dining areas. It also has its own fireplace and opens onto a large slate entertaining patio.
Remarkable curb appeal, a large flat front yard (anyone up for kicking around a soccer ball?!), and this unbeatable location all add up to one truly exceptional place to call home. The delights of the park, excellent access to shopping, dining, and multiple commuting options further enhance the undeniable appeal. So special–this is THE ONE you have been waiting for!
Offers, if any, are due Tuesday at 12pm.
