Thoughtfully re-imagined, updated for modern-day needs while retaining old-world charm: Dumbarton House is ready for its new owners to enjoy. This semi-detached, historic Georgetown brick home in the East Village, built in 1905, has been carefully renovated with meticulous attention to detail and the highest quality craftsmanship by Town & Country Builders with structural design by GTM Architects. Julie Geyer Studio provided the masterful interior design and finish selections.
Enter through a grand foyer on the main level and prepare to be wowed by the quarter sawn white oak herringbone floors, bespoke stair rails, and other fine finishes. An attached one-car garage, a mud room, a guest suite, two living/family rooms, and ample outdoor space are just a few highlights.
The main level of this home is an entertainer’s dream! The bright and sunny living room (with gas fireplace) offers fantastic indoor-outdoor flow with a wall of French Doors, creating an extended living space into the rear portion of the lot. The bluestone patio features a custom outdoor kitchen with Napoleon gas grill and Liebherr refrigerator. A tiered lawn area, composed of easy-maintenance, high-end astroturf grass, completes this fenced-in, private yard.
The exquisite kitchen is equipped with Christiana Kitchen cabinets, La Corneau dual-fuel range and custom hood, Sub-Zero refrigerator, quartzite backsplash & countertops, and an expanded island with bar seating. The large, south-facing dining room is flooded with light through historic, re-glazed windows and boiserie paneling. Off the foyer you will find both a large coat closet and a striking powder room.
On the upper level, the primary suite includes a coffered ceiling, a custom walk-in closet by California Closets, and an ensuite bath with large marble shower and dual-sink vanity. The additional bedrooms enjoy bright, large windows with views of Dumbarton Street. Note the access to bonus, finished attic space via electric, foldaway attic stairs in one of these bedrooms.
The versatile lower level has separate street-level access - both via the garage and an exterior door - with its own foyer and mudroom. Also on this level, you will find a lovely family room with a luxe wet bar (with wine fridge) and gas fireplace, laundry closet, an additional powder room, and the au pair / guest suite. This additional bedroom suite has a built-in Murphy bed, an en-suite bathroom, and it’s own private entry door.
Additional interior features include: dimmable staircase lighting, sound-proofing between floors, heated tile floors (all), two-zones of Carrier HVAC, and a wall-mounted infrared heater to keep the garage above 50 degrees. Additional features outside include: Bevolo gas lanterns on all 3 exterior sides, slate roof, copper gutters, outdoor kitchen, new fence & landscaping. Tech features of the home include: electric car charging port, Cat-6 wiring, smart doorbell, 4” conduit for future solar panels, pre-wired for wifi boost on each level. A full features list is available in the Documents.
