Set on a quiet, winding cul-de-sac just off of Massachusetts Avenue, this 1929 English manor-inspired home was completely renovated to spotlight an elegant fusion of original historic architecture with modern, high-end finishes. The restoration retained the period moldings and millwork, leaded-glass windows, intricate ironwork, antique French doors, and ebonized hardwood floors.

A rundown of the home’s many standouts: On the first floor, there’s a living room featuring beamed ceilings, built-in bookcases, and a wood-burning fireplace (one of three in the home), a rounded sunroom, and an octagonal office with display niches and a concealed safe. A gourmet kitchen is outfitted with natural stone counters, classic subway tiling, a coffered ceiling, a built-in china display, a wrought-iron staircase, top-of-the-line appliances, and an adjoining butler’s pantry with a wine refrigerator. On the upper two levels, there are seven bedrooms, including a duo of master bedroom suites—one with a fireplace, marble bath with a soaking tub and rain shower, and large, windowed dressing room; the other octagonal, with a private laundry room, coffered ceiling, double walk-in closets, and a marble bath. On the lower level, there’s a recreation room, mat-floor gym, temperature-controlled wine cellar, and third laundry room. Outside, a brick-walled terrace overlooks manicured gardens and views of Rock Creek Park. The 10,000-square-foot-home is listed at $6.749 million.
