Premier Dupont Circle Penthouse ~ Boutique Historic Building
The rich history of this magnificent Wardman building is discernIBLE from the first moments of entering the ornamental wrought iron and glass front doors to ascending the grand marble staircase to unit #32, where the past graciously intersects the present.
Upon entering, warmly greeted by solid oak hardwood floors that extend throughout, is the gourmet kitchen with expansive island and adjacent custom bar, prominently positioned as the heart of the home. Situated at the northern end of the first floor is the spacious living and dining rooms, featuring expansive windows with views of tree-lined S Street.
The inconspicuous size and proportions of unit #32 are revealed continuing down the corridor to the bedrooms and secondary living spaces. Thoughtfully designed living spaces bring to life luxurious and refined modern living, accented by timeless features and finishes throughout. Modern functionality is expertly disguised behind period appropriate woodwork and finishes including utility room with storage and full sized laundry, and ample storage space.
The grand master suite is an undeniably royal retreat, encompassing the southeast quadrant of the floor. The ample proportions continue throughout the four spaces that comprise the suite, with a generously sized main bedroom, walk-in closet with custom built in cabinetry, spa bath with dual vanity, and last but certainly not least the solarium with wraparound windows and secondary exit to the rear of the building and parking below.
The second level offers a bright contrast to the intimacy and warmth of the main level with walls of windows flooding the space with natural light from every angle. A multifunctional secondary living space currently presented as a den, provides a unique array of possibilities including a third bedroom, entertaining space, or office. Also located on the second level is the crown jewel of this penthouse - the private 400 square foot private rooftop terrace, featuring low maintenance trex decking and space for bountiful gatherings among the treetops.
