The townhouse is one of the most essential components of the urban residential landscape in the United States. Constructed in virtually every era and rendered in numerous styles and vernacular iterations, this model is the quintessence of city living. This semi-detached townhouse offers the space and light of the single family house, while providing more efficient energy consumption and reduced maintenance expenses.When Crestwood was developed in the first quarter of the 20th century, many handsome rows of fine townhouses emerged as a way of meeting the housing needs and aspirations of a burgeoning middle class. This residence has been thoughtfully renovated and carefully updated, maintaining many of the original period details.A welcoming entrance is created by a generous front porch that can be enjoyed in every season. The first floor offers a large entry hall, opening onto a spacious living room with a wood-burning fireplace and original quarter-sawn white oak floors. The dining room can seat up to 20 comfortably, and the kitchen was opened up and renovated, using fine cabinetry and high-end appliances. A sunroom off of the dining room creates an opportunity for a more causal living space, immediately adjacent to a deck overlooking the rear garden.The second floor provides a large master bedroom including two walk-in closets with a renovated en suite bathroom which offers a sybaritic soaking tub. There is an additional bedroom which could be used as a second master suite, also with renovated en suite bathroom. This floor offers the added convenience of a third bedroom and hall bathroom. A home office was created on the third floor that includes access to an intimate roof deck, perfect for observing the July 4th fireworks in addition to the Washington Monument.The lower level offers and additional 1000 square feet of finished living space containing the laundry room, storage, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, and can be used as an au pair suite.
