Stop your search now and welcome home! 912 French St NW has been impeccably maintained and masterfully reimagined by the current owners and truly presents a spectacular, move-in ready opportunity in the heart of Washington DC. Originally built in 1890 as residences for Supreme Court clerks and staff, French St NW remains one of the City’s most desired and sought-after destinations. And unlike many of the rowhomes on this block that have been converted to condos, 912 retains the original layout while also being transformed for functional, elegant, and modern City living. When the charm and unique history of a 134-year-old classic DC rowhouse intersects with contemporary finishes that harmoniously blend original period details with all the modern amenities demanded by today’s lifestyle, a most unique opportunity is created. Spanning over 2,000 sqft across 3 finished levels, you will have ample space to relax, entertain, and be cradled in understated luxury with style and grace. This 4 bed / 3 bath + full basement features several sun-filled rooms with lots of character, two levels of recently refinished solid hardwood floors, and spa inspired bathrooms with designer fixtures and appointments. The new roof, coupled with a $40,000 solar panel investment, not only ensures durability but also provides virtually free electricity most months, along with an impressive $5,000/year SREC credit. The property features a high-velocity AC and heat pump system, a $20,000 investment that ensures year-round comfort. The first floor retains the historically-relevant charm of a dedicated dining room, formal living room, and vestibule entry that warmly greets guests, coupled with the timeless elegance of antique lights adorning the home. The chef-inspired kitchen with stainless steel appliances, stunning countertops, and ample custom cabinetry ensures that all of your kitchen adventures can come true! Upstairs there are three spacious bedrooms, each with ample storage, gleaming hardwood floors, and a remodeled master bath, tastefully adorned with marble and designer accents. There is an abundance of natural light from rear exposures and skylights that were added recently. The fireplaces have been fully refurbished, with a gas fireplace in the living room for cozy evenings and a conventional fireplace upstairs, adding both charm and functionality. The fully finished lower level, showcasing over $100,000 worth of improvements, includes a private entrance, washer and dryer, kitchen hookup with electrical and plumbing, and fantastic ceiling height - perfect for a home office or gym, in-law suite, entertaining, or whatever else you can fancy. The outdoor spaces have been thoughtfully redesigned, featuring an electric car charger to cater to modern lifestyles, a lovely patio for enjoying outdoor meals, and secure parking for care-free storage of a vehicle so commuting is a breeze. We’re sure you’ve heard folks say that real estate is all about location, location, location! Well, we can’t agree more and are certain you’ll fall in love with the vibrancy of Shaw and all of the amenities at your fingertips. French St NW is one of just a handful of 1-block streets in the entire City. This quiet, tree-lined, and virtually traffic-free street creates a sense of warmth, privacy, and a tight knit community. How tight knit you ask, well, they collectively care for the one-of-a-kind French St Park and Playground through the French St Park Alliance. You’re within walking distance of the world-class dining and shopping at City Center, and you’re at the nexus of several of DC’s prized “hot-spots” (U St Corridor, 14th St, and Logan Circle) all at your fingertips. If commuting via Metro is your preference, the entire City becomes accessible as the Shaw-Howard Metro station is just 1 block away. This stunning Victorian, oozing with all of the features that redefine modern living, while keeping all of the historic charm, won’t last long!
