3417 R Street NW Washington, DC 20007
Originally constructed in 1896 and reinvented from top to bottom, 3417 R Street NW is the epitome of subtle contemporary luxury nestled in the heart of lush, tranquil Georgetown. A baby blue facade, covered porches, and white trim and picket fences combine to emanate a certain southern charm from this classic row home, which is perched high above the street behind a stone retaining wall. A flagstone walkway leads to the charming entryway, revealing a stunningly ethereal and thoroughly modern interior designed by Studio MB and prominently featured in Home and Design Magazine. Bright walls, wide-plank white oak floors, and high ceilings are hallmarks of a deceptively large interior spanning 3,690 square feet and encompassing five full bedrooms. The main level is a true open concept, as is expected in any fine modern townhome. A cozy living area adjacent to the entrance has direct outdoor access via French doors and flows directly into the kitchen area. A chef’s dream, the kitchen boasts an oversized center island with integrated seating and seamless waterfall stone countertops that house a professional gas cooktop. Sleek, white European-style cabinetry with a lacquered piano finish mirrors light streaming in from the open landing above and reinforces the minimalist theme. The family room is a few steps down — its pièce de résistance is a stunning set of accordion doors that fully open up to the rear grounds, creating an indoor/outdoor living atmosphere. One level up, the primary suite boasts a spectacular private covered wraparound porch and a spacious walk-in closet with fully concealed custom shelving. The attached primary bath resembles one found in world-class spas: clad in marble; it boasts dual floating vanities, a walk-in shower, and a stylish freeform freestanding tub. Completing the level is a library suite with extensive built-ins and walls of windows. Ascending the open steel-framed staircase once again reveals a sky-lit third level where two private bedrooms share their own bath. A self-sufficient one-bedroom apartment on the lower level has in-unit laundry and a separate entrance, perfect for guests, an au pair suite, or as an additional income-generating opportunity. Throughout the home, surround sound and motorized shades are world-class amenities, heightening the sensation of luxury. Out back, a flagstone patio combines with manicured grassy areas within the fully fenced and completely private rear lawn — a true luxury in a downtown location. The home is a block to Wisconsin Avenue in the heart of Georgetown, unquestionably one of the nation’s most sought-after neighborhoods. Minutes from the city’s finest shopping and dining, 3417 R Street NW seamlessly integrates a fresh designer interior into a classically charming row home, creating a fine example of contemporary city living.
