Welcome to 1308-1310 27th St NW, a one-of-a-kind freestanding East Village residence with exceptional views across the street to Rose Park. Two homes combined, this quintessential Georgetown home maintains its original character with touches of modern convenience. A living room with a wood-burning fireplace and original mantle welcomes visitors to this historic property. The floor plan unfolds in a circular flow providing an excellent plan for living or entertaining. A bright updated kitchen offers quartz countertops and stainless steel appliances that will allow any chef to flex their culinary muscles. Beyond the kitchen, another room with a second fireplace, allows flexibility for an office, dining room, or a sitting room. There is also an entry level powder room with a tasteful wallcovering. The back of the house features glass galore, with double french doors that open to a walled garden oasis. Large enough to host gatherings, but with separate spaces conducive to more intimate conversations, this terrace offers residents and guests a tasteful place to relax and take in the outdoors. The extensive brick hardscaping is shaded by mature specimen trees and a private gated alleyway offers convenient direct access to the street. The garden also provides access to the lower level, where a flexible living space, with full bath, laundry center and hidden plumbing for a kitchenette. Back inside, the second level highlights the piece-de-resistance, a large formal living room with 12+ foot ceilings and a pair of Palladian windows that not only let the sunlight stream in, but also provide views out over Rose Park and Rock Creek Park beyond. This long room imbues classic Georgetown style and maintains its original antique heart pine flooring. On the other end of the living room, flanked by stately built-in bookcases, french doors lead to a balcony that overlooks the cloistered garden below. Opposite the living room, the primary suite shares the same peaceful views, with double closets, and an updated bathroom with Italian tile and all the luxury fixtures and finishes one would expect from a fine home such as this. The third level features a second en-suite bedroom, with a jacuzzi soaking tub that looks over the treetops of the garden. The views from every level of this house are breathtaking. Though there are many levels, a private, quiet, skylit elevator adds convenience and comfort for those with mobility concerns. The elevator also provides interior access to the lower level, where another powder room with exquisite wallpaper, a utility room featuring the second laundry center, and recently updated HVAC systems (multi-zoned) and hot water heater are housed. Other features include a back-up generator, new copper roofing, central vacuum system, alarm system, and whole house intercom. Along with the easy access to Rose Park and Rock Creek Park, all of the shopping and restaurants of Georgetown are mere steps away. This East Village residence is an opportunity not to be missed. Come enjoy quiet park views in the heart of a thriving city.
