A very special Georgetown home with garage parking located on a quiet street on Georgetown's desired East Side. The property is a well-cared for treasure set on two lots with tiered private terraces and south-facing gardens. In fact the garden was the first city garden designed by Oehme van Sweden. The home has stunning classical features that should satisfy the most discriminating buyer. The terrace and garden are accessed by French doors from both the living room and dining room as well as a discreet gardener entrance. Built in 1956, the home is the finest urban residential work of Gertrude Sawyer, one of America's top architects. Original owners, assigned to Europe with the Foreign Service sourced many elements abroad which were shipped to Washington during construction. Additional features include four wood-burning fireplaces (one being in the master bedroom), French doors opening from the master bedroom to the garden below, mature landscaping, and a one-car attached garage. Worth noting is that the original floor plan (and as the current owners purchased the home) was 3 ensuite bedrooms. A future buyer could easily convert back to 3 bedrooms by simply redecorating the space.
