This level of renovation is rare and includes:
4 bedrooms * 2 full plus 2 half bathroom * Workshop * 16'X25'two-story addition *
9'x20' rear deck * Luxurious Owner's suite with walk in closet and radiant floor heating *Walk-up attic * Two zone Central AC * Tall basement with side and rear exits * Butler's Pantry * 

In 2005, the current owners built the two-story rear addition, going to great lengths to ensure that it would mimic the original structure of the home in quality and character. The addition includes an open-plan great room and kitchen, an upper-level master bedroom (with walk-in closet and wide-plank pine flooring), a master bathroom, and a laundry room. The renovation also included adding radiant floor heating, custom-milled woodwork and two Frank Lloyd Wright-style stained glass windows.

The electrical system, lead service line and water heater were also all replaced, and central air conditioning and ceiling fans were added. Exterior updates include new Hardiplank siding, a new roof (with 25-year shingles), and major landscaping enhancements in the backyard garden.

The owners re-did the landscaping from scratch to fully realize the potential of the 7,500 square foot lot.  The  jaw dropping yard now includes both an ‘edible garden’ and a ‘cutting garden’, with three mature fig trees, a Newtown Pippin apple tree, a Methley plum tree, blueberries, raspberries and an herb garden, as well as numerous flowering shrubs and perennials.

Despite the 3,540-square foot home’s secluded feel, 1335 Lawrence Street is less than a ten-minute walk from the Brookland/CUA Metro station (Red Line, three stops to Union Station). It’s also just a few blocks from 12th Street and establishments like Yes! Organic Market, San Antonio Bar & Grill and Menomale Pizzeria. As the neighborhood gains popularity, residents are also excited to welcome  three new children’s playground and many more dining options coming soon to Monroe Street Market.
