Sunday Open House: A Capital Classic!

If you're looking for something that looks like the Property Brothers just did a number on it, this isn't your house.  But if you would apprecciate a restored home that has remained in style for over a hundred years,  please drop by 1937 Biltmore Street NW on Sunday, December 10th from 1 to 4 pm. 

We don't see homes like this every day.  The original woodwork is still there - it's American Chestnut, now an extinct tree, and notbody has slapped white paint on it. The floors are old heart pine, not extinct, but beautiful nonetheless. 

And this house has room to spare, with over 4000 square feet of living space. It has a grand foyer, an old-fashioned parlour, and a formal dining room that would hold my extended family for a holiday meal.  The table-space kitchen was renovated in approximately 2004.  Upstairs, there are 5 bedrooms (one is currently used as a library), 3 1/2 baths, and a walk-up attic. 

The terrace level has a recently renovated 2-bedroom legal apartment with a market rental of about $2500, per month - enough to pay around $500,000 worth of mortgage payments. This makes this house a great investment as well as an impressive place to live.

Then there are the little convenience issues with the location.  The Walk-Score is 95, with restaurants from around the world, grocery shops (both exotic and mundane), Metro, bike shares, and a national park less than a block away. And if you do take your car, you won't have to drive around the neighborhood looking for a legal (or illegal) parking space when you get home.  There are two off-street parking spaces off the rear garden. 

This home is offerred at $1,999,000.  For a virtual tour, click the photo at the top of this post.

My colleague, Joseph Meier, is holding it open for me.  If you can't make it on Sunday, call your agent or if you don't have one, call Joseph at 202-215-0217 to see it by appointment.  He lives in the neighborhood and will make it easy.

I do wish that opens would work in my area. Most agents only do them on new homes

Patricia, your descriptions of this timeless beauty are so alluring! Have missed stopping by to see you. Does your sister still live in Oregon? 

Hope the Open House was a huge success.
