About 4704 Blagden Ter NW, Washington, District Of Columbia
The Colonial Revival style was prevalent throughout the United States from the end of the 19th century until the just after World War II. The enduring popularity of the style stems from its rich use of exterior decorative details conferring a simple grace and nobility. This style comprises the majority of single family houses in Crestwood, although few possess the charm and scale as this residence. Built in the late 1920s, a moment when Blagden Terrace appeared as a dignified block of homes of similar size and sensibility, this property has been thoughtfully renovated and updated in a spirit true to its original ethos. The first floor offers a large living room with fireplace, sunroom that opens onto the garden, dining room, powder room, pantry, and an eat-in kitchen that was completely re-imagined for todays lifestyle with custom hickory cabinets and the finest appliances. The second floor has two guest bedrooms, each with a renovated en suite bathroom. There is also an extremely spacious principal bedroom with a dressing room and sumptuous bathroom with radiant floor heating. A door leading to a large parapet off the landing provides an opportunity for a container garden or living space. Unlike most homes from the period, this third floor offers a bedroom, den, and a full bathroom, perfect for guests or family. The entire interior is exceptionally welcoming, perfectly arranged, and absolutely appealing. The current owners completely renovated the lower level to include a bedroom, bathroom, defined living space, laundry, storage, and a separate entrance. It could be used as an au pair suite, or as additional living space. The houses heating and cooling systems were updated as well, taking advantage of the most innovative technologies to make the house as efficient to run as it is comfortable to occupy. The convenience of an attached two-car garage accessible from the kitchen provides parking and supplemental storage.
