Welcome to one of Washington’s most desirable properties in the highly sought-after Palisades neighborhood. No detail was overlooked and no expense spared in the construction of this beautiful home, completed in 2005. The exterior combines elements found throughout this historic neighborhood, including brick accents, cedar shingles, a traditional front porch, and unique roof lines. The interior consists of four spacious, light-filled levels that create an incredibly open-feel and provide a layout that is functional yet begs for entertaining. Beautiful hardwood floors, exquisite crown molding, and custom finishes are found throughout the home. The highlight of the main floor is the chef’s kitchen, with its premier appliances and endless extras, an expansive marble bar that opens to a large living area with fireplace, and a swivel door leading to the dining and living rooms.
Twenty feet of windows line the staircase to the second level, where you will find an incredible master suite with an inviting fireplace, ample closets and deluxe Jacuzzi bath. Two additional bedrooms with a Jack-and-Jill bath and a generous laundry room complete that floor. Continuing up the staircase will take you to yet another spacious bedroom and full bath.
The lower level, with its nine-foot ceilings, full windows, and French doors, provides a large media room, a fifth bedroom, a full bathroom, and two car garage. The home sits off of prestigious MacArthur Boulevard and is part of a tree-lined, friendly community that provides restaurants, shops, parks, and wonderful public and private schools all within walking distance. A better location does not exist, with quick and easy access to Georgetown, downtown DC, Tyson’s Corner, and 495. This property really does provide the best of all worlds!!
The Palisades, or simply Palisades, is a neighborhood in Washington, D.C., along the Potomac River, running roughly from the edge of the Georgetown University campus (at Foxhall Road) to the D.C.-Maryland boundary (near Dalecarlia Treatment Plant). MacArthur Boulevard (once called Conduit Road) is the main thoroughfare that passes through the Palisades. In 1893, this subdivision was laid out by the Palisades Improvement Company. The Palisades had the Great Falls Electric Railway that ran from 36th and Prospect streets out to Glen Echo. The International Athletic Park and Amusement Company secured a large block of the Palisades and constructed a Bicycle Track and General Amusement Park, which opened on Decoration Day in 1896. Also encompassed within the Palisades is the neighborhood of Potomac Heights, which is bounded by Loughboro Road at the north end, Arizona Avenue at the south end and MacArthur Boulevard and the Potomac River.
Notable landmarks making the Palisades unique are the old Conduit Road Schoolhouse on MacArthur Boulevard, Palisades Community Church (1923), The Lab School of Washington (1967) (formerly the Florence Crittenton Home for Unwed Mothers), the German Embassy, St. David’s Episcopal Church (1940), Sibley Hospital (1961) and Gen. Montgomery C. Meig’s Washington Aqueduct/ Delcarlia Filtration/ Water Treatment Plant (1853). The Palisades neighborhood is the home for a variety of popular restaurants such as Figs, Makoto, Bambu, Bistroquet, BlackSalt, Chen’s Gourmet, Seventh Hill Pizza, Kotobuki, DC Boathouse, Et Voila’ and the new Salt and Pepper Restaurant, and its very own pet supply store, Profeed of DC. A high point of the year for many in the neighborhood is the annual July 4 parade, featuring local bands, fire engines and children on highly decorated tricycles and bicycles.
