The residence located at 2119 Leroy Place NW is well-sited on a quiet one-way street in Kalorama and is only a short walk to shopping, restaurants, and the Metro. In 2011, award-winning architect Mark McInturff beautifully renovated the residence and enlarged it with a three story modern addition. He took care to maintain the property’s original character with high ceilings, inlaid floors, and elegant molding. Built circa 1912, this Spanish Revival house features a stucco façade, terra cotta tile roof, and an elegant limestone staircase. The entryway is enhanced by lighted flowerbeds, mature landscaping, and parking for two cars. The property features a large open floor plan with custom designs and high-end finishes. The rear of the house opens to the garden through large oversized glass doors and windows. The modernized residence includes a two-person, four-level cable elevator, and a widened skylight creates a dramatic effect over the large, original, central staircase.
The spacious double foyer is graced with high ceilings, period detail archways, and attractive moldings. The reception area opens to the living room that has a fireplace, built-ins, and abundant natural light. Adjacent to the living room is the sophisticated formal dining room with a bay window and a fireplace that is flanked by cabinets and display shelves. The spectacular, open, gourmet eat-in kitchen features full-height custom cabinets, a glass backsplash, and Carrara marble countertops. The kitchen has top-of-the-line appliances including a Gaggenau concealed refrigerator, gas cooktop, Bosch microwave, concealed dishwasher, and double ovens. The full-height glass doors from the kitchen lead to the private back flagstone terrace that has been professionally designed with stone flowerbeds and a water fixture. There is also a powder room with elegant antique cherub lights and a Calcutta Gold marble countertop on the main level.
The second level features the expanded and secluded master suite that overlooks the rear garden. The luxurious master bath has heated floors, a custom steam shower, three Robern mirrored medicine cabinets with deep shelving, a claw-foot free-standing tub, and Carrara marble throughout. Large walk-in closets and additional hall closets further enhance the master suite. There is a handsome south-facing library overlooking the historic street from the front of the second level. It has a fireplace, numerous bookshelves, beautiful floors, and exquisite moldings. This room adjoins a full bath and closet so it may serve as an additional bedroom.
The third level has a large south-facing bedroom that shares a bath with an additional bedroom. There is a third bedroom on this floor with an en-suite bath and a modern architectural glass door that leads to an outside deck that overlooks the rear garden. The fourth floor is a walk up attic with ample storage space. The lower level of the residence has been completely remodeled to create a large and open in-law suite. The two-bedroom suite includes an open living area, new kitchen, remodeled bathroom, and washer/dryer. Various systems have been updated including an elevator reaching four floors, a high efficiency three-zone A/C system, two water heaters, and a new drainage system. The electricity has been upgraded, recessed lighting and ceiling speakers added, and Cat 6 Ethernet cabling installed throughout the house.
