***2 unit building *** From the moment one steps through the intricate wrought iron gates onto the front garden, 132 U Street NW, with its inviting painted brick facade and bay windows, has all of the charm expected of a classic Bloomingdale Victorian - with every modern amenity. A thoughtfully laid out floor plan comprises contemporary finishes and is enhanced by rustic Heart of Pine hardwood flooring throughout an abundance of natural light, allowing for comfortable 21st-century living wrapped up in a timeless and elegant package. The generously proportioned formal living room contains one of three gas fireplaces and flows seamlessly into a vestibule with access to either the unique side courtyard or the owner’s suite upstairs. Further along, the main corridor is a flexible home office that can be used as a main level guest bedroom, with its own adjacent full bath boasting a glass-enclosed shower and contemporary tile work. The formal dining room is amply sized and fully open to a gourmet kitchen with a large center island, bar seating, modern cabinets, and professional-grade appliances. Sliding glass doors bring the outside in, allowing for direct access to the screened-in porch. A laundry room with outdoor access completes the main level. Upstairs is where this home becomes unique, providing an unobtrusive income-generating opportunity and unparalleled flexibility. The front third of the upper level contains a spacious primary suite with its own gas fireplace, walk-in closet, and ensuite bath. The remaining two-thirds of the upper level is dedicated to a self-sufficient one-bedroom unit with a full bath, living room, kitchen, and even a possible studio overlooking the rear patio. Outside, a private outdoor entertaining area doubles as a parking pad, with a secure, roll-up garage door leading to ample parking for two cars. The rear of the home also provides access to the basement, a fully insulated storage area enhancing the already abundant storage space within the residence. With its flexible, income-generating floor plan, private parking, and walkability to fabulous nightlife and restaurants, 132 U Street blends practicality and history, all while satisfying the tastes of the most discerning buyer.
