This sophisticated Victorian "painted lady" is sited on one of Mount Pleasants most iconic and coveted blocks, a bucolic promenade meandering through a dense tree canopy past lovingly landscaped gardens. Built in 1909, the original craftsmanship and detailing is now embellished with unique, modern architectural enhancements by past owner Sam Gilliam, a renowned local abstract artist known for his use of bold colors. The elevated siting provides 4 finished levels of sunlit living, with the perfect flow for both indoor and outdoor entertaining. The chefs kitchen has been newly renovated to compliment the main floor modern narrative, and leads to an airy sitting porch over-looking a deep rear yard and expansive deck. It is rare opportunity to find these grand, neighborhood homes with south facing gardens, spacious garages, and sited only a stroll to myriad neighborhood shopping and restaurant venues, Metro and all the beauty of Rock Creek Park and National Zoo. Truly the perfect choice for todays most discriminating urban buyer who desires location, quality and true value.
