"This is a special house in an equally special location. Cambridge Place is a one block-long, one-way street that makes it particularly appealing and extremely quiet, a departure from the bustle Georgetown is known for. Inside you’ll delight in airy ceiling heights, generously-proportioned rooms, and updates throughout that make it an easy home to say “yes” to!"
Three Levels of Warmth and Comfort
This hidden jewel in Georgetown’s East Village has been thoughtfully renovated, melding timeless elegance and luxurious modern livability. Built in 1900, the Federal-style classic with its distinctive front bays and bas-relief work, is ideally located on a quiet block-long, one-way street with leafy trees and brick sidewalks.
Inside, an abundance of natural light graces this extraordinary south-facing home. You’ll find charming original architectural details such as multipaned transom windows in the front vestibule, plus especially high ceilings throughout the main level. A large sitting bay with windows on three sides almost feels like its own room. Full height built-ins are a lovely accent to the living room’s centerpiece marble fireplace. An extra-wide arched entry leads into the formal dining room.
A butler’s pantry with adjacent powder room segues to the stunning showcase kitchen with its white custom cabinetry, white stone countertops, and white subway tile backsplash. Upscale stainless-steel appliances include a Thermador gas range, LG three-door fridge, and Bosch dishwasher. Full height wood and glass doors lead out to an incredible private backyard oasis with brick lattice walls, terraced patios, the trickle of a stone fountain, and mature landscaping. It’s the perfect Shangri-La for intimate outdoor dinner parties and entertaining.
Upstairs private quarters include an extra-large front bedroom with charming bay window seats, tons of closet space, and built-ins. There are two more generously sized bedrooms on this level along with hallway wainscoting and an updated bath that blends modern and vintage details. The top story is dedicated to a remarkable owners’ suite that features a large bedroom with five windows including the front bay, custom California closets, and a flawlessly remodeled bath with a twin-sink vanity, spa tub, and huge frameless shower. At the rear of this level is a bonus room with window that can serve as a wonderful home office, dressing room, or yoga room.
The lowest level offers a big rec room, and a full bathroom with cobalt honeycomb tile floor, pedestal sink, and step-in tiled shower. There’s lots of extra storage, a big laundry room with work bench area, and outdoor exits at both the front and back. Updates throughout the home include new Hunter Douglas shades, new hardwood floors at the top level, recently replaced upstairs and downstairs HVACs, Nest security cam, front door keypad, and new front yard sprinkler system.Request a Showing
Living in the East Village
Cambridge Place is a quiet and leafy one-way street, just around the corner from an extended greenbelt that includes Montrose, Rose, and Dumbarton Oaks parks, tennis and basketball courts, tot lots, and easy access to Rock Creek Trail. Also nearby is the delightful Volta Park Pool plus an abundance of landmarks, galleries, and museums such as Dumbarton House, Dumbarton Oaks Museum, Tudor Place, and Jackson Art Center.
To say the neighborhood is walkable is understating the obvious, a delightful location with local events and block parties, friendly neighbors, and no through traffic. Despite being nestled into the embrace of this charming enclave, the vibrant bustle of Wisconsin Avenue is just a few blocks away. You can stroll to Boulangerie Christophe or Café Georgetown for coffee in the morning, and restaurants like Lutèse, Martin’s Tavern, and 1310 Kitchen & Bar for dinner.
In short, Georgetown’s East Village is an intimate place where history and community come together, with postcard pretty properties and a lifestyle that merges cosmopolitan urbanity and local community pride. Highly regarded local schools include Hyde-Addison Elementary, Hardy Middle, and Wilson High.
