Ninety years after it was built in one of Washington's finest neighborhoods at the edge of Rock Creek Park, this grand old estate has only improved with age, thanks to Georgetown architect George Stavropoulos' thorough, 21st-century renovation and expansion that more than doubled its size. But make no mistake: its historical roots are central to the design, because the original owners ran a prominent construction business and built the home using only the best materials available. Hence, the modern side additions are clad with slate roofs and 12-inch-thick Vermont granite to match the original structure. The decorative plasterwork, intricate trim, ornate fireplaces and fine wood paneling are restored to their Roaring Twenties grandeur. But unlike those days, it now boasts luxury en-suite bathrooms with every bedroom, a movie theater and walk-in wine cellar~and a kitchen to rival any of today's best. From inside out, this special home wears the gracious beauty of its past while its infrastructure and amenities befit an active family that lives fully in the present. THERE ARE TWO LOTS: 0825 and 0823. TOTAL LOT SIZE IS 1.31 ACRES. SEE DOCUMENTS FOR THE TWO TAX RECORDS.
