Sited on a prominent corner lot is this superb Romanesque Revival residence, done in the style of pre-eminent American architect Henry Hobson Richardson. The house has important historical significance as it was originally built in 1905 for the president of Lincoln National Bank. It has undergone extensive renovations, which enhanced and modernized its design while preserving traditional features. The first-floor railing, original moldings, and pocket doors have been fully restored, creating a palpable sensibility of the late 19th century. The house is of a remarkable scale, with generously-proportioned rooms for entertaining and superb architectural elements including its enriched front-door surround, reminiscent of the work of Louis Sullivan. The entry level is illuminated by an abundance of natural light, captured through large windows and magnified by 12-foot ceilings. The charming arched-front vestibule leads to the foyer, complemented by original paneling and a coffered ceiling. The turreted living room is southwest-facing, with a gas fireplace and access to a private terrace. Adjacent to the living room is the sophisticated dining room, with an additional gas fireplace, custom moldings, and southern exposure. It opens onto the chef’s kitchen which features a large center island with a breakfast bar, custom cabinetry, and stainless-steel appliances including Viking, Subzero, and Bosch. The kitchen opens to the sunny breakfast room with custom floor-to-ceiling cabinetry and a wall of windows with French doors accessing the rear terrace. The exquisite family room offers a dramatic marble slab fireplace and built-in bookshelves. The convenience of a powder room and elevator with access to all floors are also found on this level. A wide stairwell with paneling leads to the gracious second level. The impressive owner’s suite is warmed by both the southwestern light and a gas fireplace. The luxurious spa-inspired marble bathroom has Waterworks fixtures, two separate vanities, a large soaking tub, and frameless glass shower. There is a walk-in closet and an extraordinary private dressing room with backlit built-ins and a large center island including a beverage refrigerator. There are two additional bedrooms on this level, both with large closets and en-suite marble bathrooms. The laundry room is also conveniently located on this floor. The third level has a fully refurbished skylight, which can be seen from the first-floor stairwell all the way to the top floor. The landing was treated as a separate living space, with a wall of bookshelves and glazed doors to the private office. Adjacent is an attractive marble powder room. The eastern side of the third level features a generously-proportioned guest suite with a private sitting room and en-suite bathroom. The lower level offers a remarkable media room, full-sized gym, an in-law suite, and full bathroom. There is a temperature-controlled wine cellar, powder room, and access to the two-car garage with additional storage space. The private rear garden and terrace were professionally landscaped and are perfect for outdoor entertaining. The terrace offers a fire pit, built-in grill station with seating, pergola, fountain, and mature plantings. The residence is just steps from Mitchell Park, Rock Creek Park, and many fine shops and restaurants.
