Just a block off bustling Wisconsin Avenue with its shops and restaurants, on the quiet end of Macomb Street you will find a classic Four-Square Cleveland Park house with a coveted Cathedral view. The natural beauty of the front yard with its stunning Japanese maple and mature plantings offers an oasis from the hectic pace of city living. With a large front porch hidden from the street you will be able to enjoy the changing leaves of autumn in private.
As you approach the front door you will admire the gracious fanlight and sidelights surrounding the over-sized front door. Upon entering the foyer you will appreciate the nearly 10 foot ceilings and the bright and open feeling with sun flooding in from large windows and from the adjacent living room. The refinished oak hardwood floors gleam and the new paint brings a crisp, fresh feeling throughout the house.
Boasting an original coffered ceiling, triple windows and large wood-burning fireplace with hewn stone mantel the living room draws you in. Pocket doors lead to the spacious dining room with space to seat 12 and a large side-board; a large bay window pours light into the room.
French doors connect the dining room to the breakfast room with its extra-deep greenhouse windows which are perfect for growing flowers or spices year round. The updated kitchen with peninsula opening to the breakfast room features gas cooking, refrigerator with through-door ice and a window over the sink.
The sliding glass door off the kitchen and breakfast room opens to the large, level, fully-fenced rear yard featuring a large deck for dining al fresco, hot tub for relaxing your worries away and a shed for storing gardening tools and bicycles.
The second level boasts four bedrooms with refinished heartpine floors, large windows and spacious closets. The laundry room, formerly the sleeping porch, is conveniently located on the bedroom level with great windows and even a Cathedral view.
The third floor hosts three additional bedrooms one with Palladian widows overlooking Macomb Street and another with Cathedral views and walk-in closet. The bedroom levels have ceramic tile bathrooms.
The lower level family room has windows on two exposures, recessed lights, plumbing for a wet bar and an exterior entrance. You will also find a full-bathroom and large storage room.
The home is ideally configured for expansion if desired - either a bump out in the rear or a detached garage are possible. With an extra-long driveway on one side there is plenty of parking though.
It is a short walk to Wisconsin Avenue with numerous restaurants including Cactus Cantina, Bistro Le Zinc, 2 Amys and Café Deluxe. The brand-new Cathedral Commons shopping center with a 55,000+ square Giant, shops and offices is scheduled to open in 2013.
The Cathedral, visible from the house, is just a block away with its gardens and amazing Gothic architecture. Both private and public schools are moments away including National Cathedral, St. Albans, Washington International, NCRC, Maret, Sidwell Friends and Eaton. Local parks abound with Rosedale, Tregaron, Macomb Street Recreation and Hearst all just blocks away.
