About 2540 Massachusetts Ave NW 107

This stunning, highly sought-after corner residence has been meticulously renovated and includes hardwood floors, recessed lights, and splendid historical moldings and trim throughout.

There is a separate formal dining room with an additional decorative fireplace and built-ins. The renovated kitchen features black granite counters and high-quality appliances including a Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer, Bosch dishwasher, and a separate Asko washer and dryer. The master bedroom has four large windows, a closet with built-in shelving, and a renovated en-suite master bath with marble floors, countertops, a frameless glass shower, and Grohe and Kohler fixtures. There is an additional bedroom with built-ins and a renovated en-suite bath that also has marble throughout, a glass shower, and Grohe and Kohler fixtures.

Built in 1923 and located in the sought after neighborhood of Kalorama, this historic Georgian Revival style cooperative exudes elegance and sophistication. Designed by architect Harry Edwards, the restrained Georgian Revival façade is appropriate in this neighborhood of grand homes of similar style. The two most prominent features of the building are the imposing entrance, with its rusticated limestone surround and iron and glass marquee, and the pair of projecting pavilions. There is a semicircular front driveway and the building’s U-shape plan gives on to an open rear courtyard facing Rock Creek Park. The building was one of the first of its time with a step down lobby and the ground floor includes a richly detailed communal lobby space. The building has housed many of DC’s elite including businessmen, authors, university presidents, clergy, members of Congress, and diplomats.
