Built in 1928, this 7,000-square-foot home was carefully renovated by real-estate developer John Cecchi to retain the beauty of the original detailing, including dark hardwood floors, intricate crown molding, and custom built-in cabinetry, plus ten-foot ceilings, huge windows, and French doors. An extensive flagstone terrace and lush gardens surround the house, set on a 10,000-square-foot lot on Bancroft Place in tony Kalorama Heights; inside, there’s a first-floor kitchen—outfitted with marble counters and backsplash and featuring top-level Viking stainless steel appliances—and a breakfast dining area with skylights, garden access, and its own informal powder room (there’s another, more formal half-bath off the foyer). Upstairs, a master suite overlooks the garden and features two walk-in closets, a sitting area, and a master bath with marble floors and double-sink vanity, a soaking tub, and a rain shower. Speaking of marble: All five of the full-size baths (one for each bedroom) feature the luxe stone. There’s also a two-car garage; a designated laundry room on the lower level as well as a stacked laundry closet off the master suite; an elevator; and a walk-in wine closet. The property is listed at $5.25 million. Keep reading for a look, then go to Washington Fine Properties for the complete details.
