Observatory Circle is one of Washington’s premier neighborhoods. One of several, much admired, semi-detached homes on a tree-lined street, this elegant home is within walking distance to parks, restaurants, shops, The National Cathedral and the schools, gardens and other organizations on the Cathedral Close. It is ideally located to provide easy access to downtown DC and key destinations in the Virginia and Maryland suburbs. Public transportation is easily accessible just one block from the home. The region’s two major airports, Reagan National and Dulles International, are just a short drive.
This stately brick and stone, semi-detached, Tudor home has architectural details that will appeal to the most discerning buyer. It is rumored that many of the same artisans that worked on the National Cathedral in 1928, also constructed this home and the attached # 3815. With gracious living areas, high ceilings and an abundance of south facing light, even today, the home is ideal for entertaining and comfortable family living. The main level features a welcoming foyer, living room with a high wood-burning fireplace faced in hand carved wood and mantle, a large dining room with seating for twelve plus, comfortable sitting room with French doors to rear deck, galley kitchen, powder room, and mud room also leading to rear deck. The upper levels include a generous size master suite with walk-in closets and three additional bedrooms. The lower level boasts a recreation room, optional fifth bedroom or home office, an amazing artist studio addition, multiple storage closets, laundry and full bath. Inviting side and rear gardens include a variety of mature plantings including a fig tree and grape arbor. The rear of the lot abuts a public service alley with convenient access to off street parking and a storage shed.
