A REWARDING ESCAPE PEACEFULLY SITUATED, 7 minutes away from Georgetown. This stunning 4-level home is in the heart of Foxhall Village. Luxurious and serene in its current elegant and custom design. Gorgeous 7 Bedrooms and 8 Full Bathrooms throughout 6,500 square feet of living space. Custom home was built in 2014 to perfection and high-end construction choices. Unlike any other home, every bedroom has its own bathroom. The home presents an actual 9th bathroom, which has been transformed into the 3rd level laundry room.
This home encompasses everything a homeowner needs to feel truly “at home” and entertain guests: 2 wine bars, 5 fireplaces, backyard fire pit, and every room has the Sonos Audio System Platform allowing one to individually play their music of choice or have the whole home play at once. Once you park outside, you cannot help but notice the authentic brick design throughout from the walkway up to the home and front patio. Upon entry is a grand hall that boasts the depth of the home with its beautiful all-natural hardwood floors and ample windows allowing natural light through the home.
When you want an “open space” this home offers just that. The main level offers a sun-filled study, two entertaining rooms, a library ready to stimulate the mind, open formal dining, and an enticing gourmet kitchen. This kitchen encourages one to feel like a true chef with its large brand new quarter-round Quartz countertops, top-of-the-line Jenn-Air appliances from the 6-burner gas cooktop, two dishwashers (where do you see this?), built-in side-by-side refrigerator, two ovens, and a large stainless steel farmhouse sink. As one cooks, another can enjoy the entertainment room which has a built-in theater-like audio system. Step out to the brick-paved backyard to finish that meal with fresh smores smoked from the brick firepit. Throughout the home has high-end finishes from Hansgrohe faucets and shower panels, solid core 8 feet tall doors, 2 jacuzzi tubs, Porcenalosa tiles in specific bathrooms, remaining bath tiles are Spain-sourced, and all 4 sliding doors throughout the home from Provia.
A private outdoor balcony overlooking the neighborhood and as far as Rosslyn’s buildings, a relaxing hammock, a wine bar with microwave, and a large linen closet. As one heads down to the lower level, space allows one to flexibly choose whether to make it a recreation room with gym space, or take advantage and make it like another home with its kitchenette, two bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a second laundry room, and an open space to have an eat-in kitchen and office space to work from home.
This location within the Foxhall Village is hard to beat—a few minutes vicinity to Georgetown, to the Key Bridge and serene views of the Potomac River, ample walking trails, minutes to Rosslyn of Arlington, and quick access to Canal Rd and Clara Barton Parkway to take one to Maryland. Without question the home’s location, openness, and high-end materials meticulously chosen, all illustrate so much value more than can be described. It must be visited and experienced with one’s own sense!
The triangular community is bordered by Reservoir Road to the north, Glover Archbold Park to the east and Foxhall Road to the west. With its brick-and-stucco Tudor-style rowhouses and English accents such as curved chimney pots and limestone balustrades, Foxhall Village is a place that residents say feels less like the heart of downtown Washington and more like the English countryside.
Most of the 300-plus homes in the small neighborhood near Georgetown were designated as part of the Foxhall Village Historic District in 2007, and most of the homes retain the quaint charm they had when they were first built in the 1920s and 1930s. And with Glover Archbold Park directly to the east, it’s easy to forget that the quiet, residential neighborhood is in the city at all.
Foxhall Village was developed in the early 1900s on a 60-acre farm owned by Henry Foxall, according to a brochure from the D.C. Historic Preservation Office. Harry K. Boss, president of Boss & Phelps, which developed much of Foxhall Village, found inspiration for the neighborhood’s design on a trip to England in the 1920s, according to the brochure. The herringbone brickwork, decorative concrete shields and polished-brass hardware that adorn most of the houses are all aimed at capturing the beauty of an English village, according to the brochure.
Foxhall Village also offers easy access to Glover Archbold Park, the Capital Crescent Trail and the C&O Canal. Ample parks, fields and playgrounds are part of what makes Foxhall Village popular among young families.
