Description

Ideally sited on one of the most picturesque blocks in DC, this quintessential porch-front Cleveland Park home (circa 1906) was pristinely restored beyond its original Victorian glory!

Far beyond a simple renovation, this historic restoration built upon design elements more than a century old and incorporated modern spaces and comforts, such as a laundry room on the upper level, a newly excavated lower level that feels more like a first floor than one that is submerged and a unique attic retreat. This very special home was painstakingly taken down to its original studs and rebuilt with all new systems over an 18-month period culminating in early 2005. The original Shingle-style architecture was carefully preserved and enriched at a renovation cost alone of approximately $1.1 million. The kind of home in which generations of family gather together on special occasions, it is now available to serve as a muse for a new generation for the next fortunate owner!

Step inside and fall in love! An unrivaled attention to detail is immediately evidenced by the foyer's custom oak woodwork, built-in “kissing” bench and historic lighting fixtures that include a period newel post purchased in a small antique shop just outside of London and an antique elevator light found in an vintage lighting shop in the Berkshires.

The living room showcases a combination of an original oversized window and several new custom Marvin windows that replicate the original design. The room was expanded to feature an entirely new bay with built-in bench. Other amenities include new crown molding, new picture rail molding, reclaimed historic lighting fixtures and refinished original pine wood floors. Even the original pocket doors were restored to working order.

The dining room, which showcases an antique Cherry mantle, can be used as double parlor for additional entertaining space or set as a formal dining room. The wood-burning fireplace features a convenient gas starter and stunning Ann Sacks tile. Matching period chandeliers grace both the living and dining rooms.

The gourmet kitchen boasts marble counters, a Viking Professional 48" six-burner-plus-grill dual fuel thermal-convection automatic re-ignition range, a Sub-Zero 736TC refrigerator/freezer, a Miele Incognito dishwasher, a classic gooseneck Waterworks faucet with separate hand spray and an over-sized Kallista farm sink. The Professional Viking range features an exterior venting hood with removable baffle filters, heat lamps, halogen lights, a stainless backsplash and shelf.

Three-Point Locking Marvin French Doors in both the kitchen and the dining room open to the rear porch. The fully integrated Sub-Zero is encased in custom wood panels, lending it the appearance of a free-standing cabinet. The all new pantry touts soapstone counters, a Viking microwave and a Viking wine cooler. The pantry's custom woodwork was inspired by the architecture of days gone by. Full extension lower shelves provide easy access to pots and cooking supplies.

The opulent powder room showcases an exquisite turn-of-the century stained glass recovered from another historic DC home, an elegant wall-mounted Herbeau faucet, two Sutton wall sconces by Wilmette Lighting, an Italian chandelier, classic wainscoting, substantial crown molding, Toto toilet and an antique marble-topped table adapted to ever-so-chicly house a Waterford-inspired glass vessel sink.

An exposed stone wall and classic board-and-batten molding set the stage for the relaxed elegance found in the lower level. A conveniently located wet bar is cleverly tucked under the staircase. The spacious family room was made to feel even more so thanks to the floor having been excavated to increase the ceiling height. The once unused space now features ample 8' ceilings, hardwood floors, recessed lighting, custom millwork and a lighted display cabinet with glass doors. The lower level bath touts a custom marble vanity, a glass shower panel and Kohler tub.

Upstairs custom built-in oak bookcases, a window seat, Marvin windows, plaster crown moldings and antique lighting enhance the library landing. This enchanting space, where one can easily while away the hours curled up with a good book, was once a hall bath.

The eastern-facing, sun-drenched master bedroom features intricate crown molding, custom plantation shutters and double closets with built-in shelves.

Once a modest bedroom, the second floor hall bath was renovated at a cost of $50K alone to showcase a heated marble floor, jetted claw-foot tub, Dornbracht faucet, Urban Archaeology rain shower head, Toto toilet, extravagant Greek key tile, elegant egg-and-dart crown molding, custom shutters, custom built-in linen closet, custom medicine cabinet, Urban Archaeology sconces and ceiling mounted lighting and a Victorian-styled double vanity also from Urban Archaeology -- which alone carried a price tag of more than $16,000.

Exposed woodwork in the second bedroom highlights picture rail molding, which was installed throughout the home. Every generously proportioned bedroom in the house features at least two exposures. The sun-filled third bedroom touts three exposures, an antique lighting fixture and two new Marvin windows.

The second floor laundry room boasts Samsung Deep Steam Washer & Dryer and a granite-topped cabinet that conceals a clothes hamper and a pull-out ironing board.

The versatile third floor bedroom boasts numerous built-ins, maximizing the room's potential. It could easily serve as a guest bedroom, a play room, a family room or home office. The dramatic vaulted ceiling and two sets of original diamond-pane windows accent the space, lending an air of whimsy to this tree-top retreat.

The third floor bathroom features a frameless shower with built-in bench, floor-to-ceiling tile, classic basket weave floor tile, custom built-in medicine cabinet, Toto toilet, Rohl bridge faucet and a custom Marvin window.

But beauty is more than skin deep at 3310 Ross Place, NW! This "smart" wired home features remote control access to its lighting, security systems. Discreet video surveillance and intercom system protects residents. All systems are accessible from iPhones from any location in the world that has an Internet connection. The home has all new systems from electrical and plumbing and 2-Zone HVAC to the whole house audio system and fire-suppression sprinkler systems.

So come home and relax on the gracious front porch, where you can sip ice tea, share news with neighbors and enjoy your favorite music from the ceiling-mounted speakers. The generous, level rear and side yards are a feature not commonly found among Cleveland Park homes. A charming pebble pathway leads to romantic rose and clematis-covered arbor. The arbor, Nantucket-style picket fence and gates and rear ship-lap board fences were all handcrafted by Walpole Woodworkers.

All this is just one block from Connecticut Avenue with its shops, restaurants and groceries. The Metro, Uptown Theater, National Zoo and library are all within a short walk. Plus, the Macomb Street playground, Rosedale (the Cleveland Park village green), the Cleveland Park Club, and Tregaron gardens are all steps away.
