Situated in one of DC’s most-coveted, secret enclaves, 917 Westminster Street NW offers a uniquely modern elegance in a statuesque, historic home built in 1895. Tucked away in a quietly lush one-block street, the home is conveniently located just steps away from the shops, restaurants, and grocery stores of Shaw, Logan Circle, and the U Street Corridor.
A grand first impression begins at the original wood double front doors and marble entryway, leading into an expansive, open main level. Soaked with natural light from spacious bay windows, the living room features a distinct circular design — created by the singular vision of an architect — perfect for displaying art and crafting a wonderful environment for entertainment. The main level continues to a spacious dining area and access to the private porch. Continue onwards to the eat-in kitchen with stainless steel appliances and a wealth of cabinet storage. From the kitchen, access the deck and flagstone patio with private parking for two cars, secured by a roll-up garage door. A surprisingly spacious half bath completes the main level.
The second level includes three generously-proportioned bedrooms. The first grand bedroom on this floor includes the beautiful bay window with a sunny skylight, wood-burning fireplace, and spacious closet. The second bedroom is surprisingly large and also offers a deep closet. The third bedroom is flooded with light and overlooks the flagstone patio below. A marble full bath with modern finishes is included in this level, as well as the stacking washer and dryer.
The top floor features the gorgeous primary bedroom suite and roof deck. The primary suite bedroom is very grand, large enough for a king sized bed and sofa. There is a sliding door to the small balcony with panoramic views of lovely Westminster Street. The primary ensuite bath includes a double vanity, soaking tub, and additional storage for linens. The large walk-in closet is generous enough for two. The roof deck, with ample space for outdoor dining, entertaining, and whatever you heart wishes, is the perfect escape on a beautiful day or evening.
And finally, the walk-out lower level offers an excellent opportunity. This unfinished space includes a rough-in for a bath, and could be converted to a lower level suite for rental income. Or, finish this space to be an added living area or workout room. Currently, the lower level provides excellent storage and is just waiting for the next project, should you wish.
