On a historic, tree-lined street in the heart of Georgetown sits an impeccably renovated Greek Revival-style white clapboard home. Built in 1863 as an end row house with a contiguous twin, the property has since been combined into one large dwelling with three to four bedrooms and three and one-half baths by architect and owner Simon Jacobsen. Featured in Architectural Digest, the 3,234 square foot home is also the recipient of the 2010 AIA/DC Washingtonian Award. A front door with transom windows leads to a formal hallway with three soaring closets. Rounding the corner, a large and open gallery is revealed, suitable for entertaining. Old plank floors have been finished with a glossy white porch paint, lending to a theme concurrent throughout the home of white-on-white luxurious minimalism. Three steps lead up to a grand living room with giant custom floor-to-ceiling windows. Adjacent is an open library with fireplace (one of five in the house), towering bookshelves and sliders out to the rear deck. As with many homes of the era, cooking is done at the below-ground level. Full-height doors and lowered handles create the feeling of high ceilings, with natural light coming through six-over-six pane windows with white plantation shutters. The thirty-foot long catering-style kitchen designed by Jacobsen Architecture features Vermont green slate floors, a white Corian counter running the length of the room, custom LDF cabinets, pull-out birch trays, professional grade fixtures, and a large pantry. Appliances include a Five Star four-burner gas range, LG side-by-side refrigerator and Bosch dishwasher. Next-door is the dining room with green slate floors plus a fireplace, as well as sliders out to the two-tiered rear garden. Also on this lower level is a powder room, laundry, media room with brand new Master Stain Black carpet and a wonderful office with brick floors, built-ins and oversized windows. Main sleeping quarters are on the third story, with new Berber carpet and synthetic padding throughout. The spacious owner's suite features a wall of massive windows with a full-length automated Lutron shade. Enjoy a large private dressing room with windows and custom built-ins! The en suite bath features white Carrara floor tile and a Jacobsen-designed vanity with Corian countertop and recessed round sink with Dornbracht fixture. The white-tiled Dornbracht walk-in shower has an oversized rain head and chrome wand. There are two more nice-sized bedrooms at this top level, each with a pair of six-over-six pane windows, tons of closet space and a light, airy feel. Two full baths are off the hallway, with Travertine floor tiles and recessed halogen lighting. One has a marble vanity top while the other is Corian. Each has a shower/tub combo. What is currently the dressing room in the owner's suite could easily be converted back into the home's fourth bedroom. An incentive of merging two homes into one is the additional amount of private outdoor space. Multiple exits lead to a large fenced-in, rear garden edged with mature plantings. An additional balcony with spiral stairs overlooks the backyard oasis with its garden and small built-in pond and fountain. It's the perfect place for dining al fresco or entertaining friends. Also of note is a private parking pad with space enough for two to four cars, along with monitored ADT security on doors and windows and dual-zoned HVAC system.
