2021 Allen Place NW Washington, DC 20009
Welcome to 2021 Allen Pl NW in the highly sought-after neighborhood of Kalorama. Allen Place is a serene, tree-lined street that gracefully curves along the Rock Creek Park, putting you within arm’s reach of both nature and the vibrant life of Adams Morgan and Dupont. This 2 bedroom, 3 bathroom row house is the quintessential DC classic and has been meticulously cared for. Upon arriving home, you are welcomed by a graciously sized front porch where you can sit and enjoy chatting with the neighbors. Through the large front door, you enter into a generous foyer. Immediately you take note of the beautiful hardwood floors, the large traditional moldings, and the soaring ceiling height. The formal living room is graced by large windows which bring natural light streaming in, and the built-in cabinetry adds a sophisticated pop of designer color. The grand formal dining room has ample space to fit all of your Thanksgiving guests and a built-in corner China cabinet. The kitchen has classic white wood cabinetry lining both walls, offering way more storage than you would expect. The kitchen wall has been opened up to create an airy feeling and connects to the breakfast room, which also has a built-in desk and a full wall of cabinetry for even more storage. The kitchen and breakfast rooms overlook the breathtaking patio and garden. It is a true oasis from the hustle bustle of city life! Enjoy grilling dinner with friends or grounding yourself in the garden. The meandering path leads to a rare two-car garage. Back inside, the stairway leads to the second level which is flooded by natural light from the skylight above. The large primary suite was reconfigured to add a sitting area and two full walk-in closets. The primary bath is also lit with natural light from the vaulted skylight and features a dual vanity and a large shower. The washer and dryer were relocated from the basement to the upstairs hallway for ultimate convenience. The second bedroom runs along the entire front of the house and has two oversized closets. You’ll love the built-in cabinets and the custom window shutters to keep the sun from streaming in. The second bedroom has its own bathroom off the hallway. The last mystery door in the hall leads to a set of stairs that take you to the roomy attic. It is currently configured for storage but could possibly be converted to more living space. The former owners had a desk up there, right under the window, to use the natural sunlight to paint. Down the stairs to the lower level, you will find a lovely family room with built-ins, a third bedroom area with a walk-in closet, and the third full bathroom. It has new carpet and is fresh paint throughout. The basement is an English basement, with its own front entrance and rear exit. This home has great bones. There was a full gut renovation, adding all new plumbing and electrical systems, as well as new walls in the late 90’s. This is also when the primary suite was created and the kitchen and bathrooms were upgraded with timeless finishes. This row house has central AC, and radiant heat. There is also a mini-split unit in the basement. Kalorama has some of the most picturesque sights, scenery, and architecture that DC has to offer. With a walk score of 92, you don’t need your car for daily errands, shopping, getting to work, or nights on the town! This home is only .5 miles from the Woodley Park Metro and .8 miles from the Dupont Circle Metro. And if you love animals, you are .8 miles from the National Zoo. Only 5.5 miles to Reagan National Airport. And of course, yards from the Rock Creek Park and all the trails and parks it has to offer. Let’s not forget, it’s zoned for the highly rated Oyster-Adams Bilingual School! This home is a must see!
