The location, fit and finish are second to none!"
At the end of a quiet Georgetown street sits an extraordinary home. Built in 1830, the Federal semi-detached residence is nestled into the Rock Creek greenbelt and adjacent Rose Park, allowing a sublime in-town yet verdant setting. Meticulously renovated with no expense spared, this 4-bedroom, 5.5-bath East Village treasure is framed by hedges and trees, presenting handsomely from the brick sidewalk.
Stepping into the large center hall foyer, you’ll be smitten by timeless design that is welcoming rather than ostentatious. High ceilings and wide passageways are augmented by lovely crown molding and millwork. A grand staircase sweeps up to the private quarters, while high ceilings and rows of tall paned windows allow a sun-filled and airy atmosphere.
To one side of the entry hall is a front dining room with a lovely fireplace. To the other side is an elegantly proportioned living room with southern exposure and a gas fireplace. The living area is open to a classic library with floor-to-ceiling windows and French doors opening to the sylvan garden. The abundance of windows throughout the home establishes a light-filled essence. Also noteworthy are the antique wide-plank hardwood floors that have been so lovingly restored.

Marble counters were recently extended to accommodate a built-in microwave drawer, warming drawer and Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer drawers. New appliances in 2020/21 include a Wolf professional grade gas cooktop with wok attachment, a Sub-Zero fridge, an additional a Miele wall oven and steam oven, a Miele exhaust system. A full-size Miele wine refrigerator offers two temperature zones. The marble prep island seats four and is a great place to sit and eat, or just observe as tantalizing scents waft through the air.
A wonderful family room has sunny exposures, an incredible coffered ceiling and a new suede wall that completes the look of a space that is so enjoyable to be in. A wide set of stairs curves up to one of the four bedroom suites. But before heading up, you might want to step out through one of the four sets of French doors to the back yard and gardens. A Waterworks full bath in this space with heated floors serves indoor and pool guests with direct access to the pool area.
Seldom will you find a more magical outdoor oasis in the city, fringed by a combination of old stone walls, new wooden fencing and tall privacy trees. A large brick patio segues to lush green lawns, and then to postcard perfect swimming pool with cobalt blue tiles. Landscape redesign includes an antique fountain and urns, along with new tasteful white garden lights, adding to the overall ambience. This is a special place to host indoor/outdoor gatherings in a serene setting that has so many stories to tell.
The front staircase ascends to three bedroom suites each with a luxurious Waterworks marble bath, one bedroom has its own fireplace. Restored hardwood floors are complemented by large area rugs. The owners’ suite with its magnificent barrel ceiling has sets of tall windows on opposite sides. The en-suite bath has been enlarged as an exquisite his and hers with two quartz topped vanities, a Toto automatic toilet, towel warmers, an MTI Whirlpool air bath with micro-bubbles and in-tub water heating, and a frameless pass through six-jet shower.
The owners have invested substantially over the past three years in order to modernize a home approaching its bicentennial, while preserving the original charm and character. Over $100K was spent replacing the three zone HVAC alone.

The home at 2613 Dumbarton is at the end of a quiet street in Georgetown’s East Village, and was built 61 years before Georgetown became part of the District of Columbia. You can still see original cobblestones at the edge of street, along with brick sidewalks and street lanterns that hearken back to an era when tall ships docked at the waterfront. Surrounded by parkland, the grand old residence is steps from Rock Creek Park Trail, Francis Dog Park and the Rose Park Tennis Courts.
While the East Village tends to be more verdant and residential than its western counterpart, the neighborhood is still a vibrant place to be with nearby restaurants, shops and bakeries. You can grab groceries at Sarah’s Food Market and Stachowski’s Butcher Shop with its daily dinner-to-go specials, or peruse great foodie options at the popular Wednesday Rose Park Farmers’ Market. The new Georgetown Waterfront Park is an easy walk or bicycle ride away, about a half-mile south and the Four Seasons is just 2 blocks away.v
