Property for Sale

Curbside, this home's facade is picturesque thanks to Georgian revival symmetry punctuated by an arched portico, black accents and sash windows. Iconic Chippendale accents on the upper terrace are echoed in back yard fencing; evidence that details of this home have been thoughtfully updated with timeless taste and effortless style. The vibe is New England chic - classic, calming.

Within, home is a fine marriage between interwar character and 21st century comforts. Updates from top to bottom include a reconfigured floor plan with a more contemporary flow, while the details that matter have been kept intact or enhanced by sophisticated design touches like moulding and millwork. Original front door, hardwood flooring and archways never lose their magic.

Managing the elegance and ease required of Rockcliffe living, this home also handles the bustle of daily family life. Upon entry, the center hall layout leads to spaces scaled for unforgettable entertaining, and easy transitions to thoughtful, independent family zones. How did you live anywhere else?

To the left of entry, a well appointed powder room with wall-sconce, Travertine flooring and vessel sink impresses guests. Beyond, the open living room is a magnet for formal entertaining. Anchoring the space, conversations start around a gas fireplace ensconced in original charm. White-washed and arch-topped, what a pleasant way to start the evening. Informal family hangouts and guests inevitably find themselves drawn to the sunroom nearby. Eternally bright and cheerful, you have just found your daily hangout. Thanks to smart updated design, wide open sightlines and activity flow into the dining area and open kitchen. A sprawling island is social central, as it should be. Framed by subtle wall paneling, shaker cabinetry and accented with a coach pendant lamp, this kitchen offers up style and function. A double farmhouse sink, ample granite-topped counters, plenty of drawer storage and ceiling-reaching cabinets means all gadgets have a home. An AGA stove and oven is a true treat for any discerning chef.

Nearby carport access is accompanied by a large double front hall closet - comings and goings, family paraphernalia, it's all within reach yet out of sight. Also in this convenient zone - a desk area and butler's pantry with butcher block counter, wine fridge and glass paneled storage is exceptionally handy.

The first level extends outside during summer months. A two tiered cedar deck lays the foundation for alfresco entertaining, while the verdant grass surround means kids and pets get ample room for playtime too.

Wall paneling and an original banister lead you to the second level - everything is finished in elegant natural hues. The Cape Cod references suit home's original character beautifully. Four bedrooms on this floor are welcoming and offer the best of comforts for occupants. Three are served by a main bath kitted with enviable features; ceramic tile in warm taupes, an oversized walk-in shower and soaker tub, plus california shutters to manage light and privacy.

In the master suite, access to the second floor deck is a gratifying bonus; grab the paper and your coffee for a slow and relaxing morning. A spacious footprint and plenty of natural light yield a sense of calm, while the expanded ensuite features wall to wall closets with built-in shelving to keep the space clutter-free. Oversized ceramic in creamy neutrals, a double vanity, and oversized walk-in glass shower features marble at your feet and a fabulous morning routine.

In the basement, home's footprint offers plenty of possibilities for leisure; a spacious media or recreation room, plus a personal library or fifth bedroom with huge windows facing the back yard. The gas fireplace with reclaimed wood mantle is the perfect companion to a good book. An in-law or nanny suite is equally appealing, thanks to the three piece bath finished in high end ceramic tile with walk-in glass shower.

For every family scenario, this home answers with great design and style. Less than a 5 minute walk away lies Ashbury, among other top end schools. A short and scenic commute downtown leads to effortless daily routines, while specialty shops, restaurants and culture lie in minutes-away Beechwood Village and the Byward Market. Parks, the beloved pond and a convivial community all wait for you -
