No catalogue of prestigious American addresses would be complete without the homes of Observatory Circle. The quintessentially Washingtonian center hall colonial at 67 Observatory Circle - with its 6 bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms - is especially sure to wow you.
This home is the perfect intersection of old and new, retaining the charm of yesterday’s construction while adding the form and function of modern utility that was carefully and brilliantly woven into every aspect of its recent extensive renovation. No detail was left unconsidered. Inside and outside the owners went above and beyond to design spaces for how today’s homeowners live.
As you ascend the new, beautiful and underlit flagstone stairs and walkway you will be greeted by the striking original brick exterior. Upon entering you will note the large formal living room to your left that is anchored by a beautiful wood burning fireplace and on your right to the dining room that makes for memorable dinner parties. The rear of the first floor is a perfect great room with a chef’s kitchen and family room that make for an extraordinary gathering place. High-end appliances abound - from the Thermidor refrigerator and freezer, 8-burner Blue Star range, Miele plumbed-in coffee machine and Miele convection microwave - that all contribute to making this a wonderful place to host guests while ensure you have appliances and tools to create memorable meals. The convenience of two dishwashers, the beauty of stunning Italian marble counters and the repurposed 1920’s iceboxes into a modern wet bar with kegerator wall tap will leave your guests in awe of the detail that went into this space.
You may not ever want to leave the professionally designed, recently renovated tiered rear exterior yard that features a turf great lawn that is as fun to host a family football game as it to fill with high-tops for a memorable outdoor cocktail party. When it is time to retire at night, you have two upper floors featuring six full bedrooms from which to choose. The second floor is two large bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms on one side of the home while the other is a luxurious primary suite completely reimagined into a spa-like retreat with a gorgeous bathroom and full room closet that is likely to leave you in awe.
The global pandemic highlighted the notable versatility of this home where the three bedrooms of the third floor where entirely repurposed into a complete home gym and a two-office suite that easily accommodated the workplace needs of two busy professionals. The new owners may choose to keep this layout or return this floor to its former three-bedroom layout. You won’t want to miss the lower level which features a second laundry room, abundant storage, a suite for guests and an amazing bonus room that could be a playroom, mancave or hobby room - depending on your needs. This is the one.
