Ideally located in the heart of Georgetown’s prestigious East Village, this handsome detached residence is located on a .23-acre lot and exudes grandeur. The Colonial Revival-style home was constructed in 1895 for the daughter of Thomas Hyde, a prominent Washington DC businessman, who worked directly with the architecture firm of Snowden Ashford and Howard Sill. The house remained in the Hyde-Wright family until the early 1960s, when the owner and occupant of the adjacent estate Evermay purchased the property. The new owner made significant changes to both the interior and exterior of the existing structure. The residence now has a commanding street presence at 28th and Q Streets, set back from the street to capture incredible light from all directions. The classic brick façade offers impressive curb appeal, and the interior offers a wonderful balance of sophisticated entertaining rooms and warm family living spaces. Award-winning architects Cunningham|Quill, Horizon Builders, and interior designer Thomas Pheasant worked together in a custom collaboration to completely transform the home using the highest quality design, fixtures, and finishes. No detail was overlooked in the impressive renovation of this historic residence. The main level is set above the street and features an open, flowing layout, perfect for entertaining. The gracious foyer has beautiful moldings and is lit by a lovely transom window above the front door. It leads to the elegant formal living room and dining room, which are complemented by two exquisite marble wood-burning fireplaces, high ceilings, and elegant moldings. There is also an office with an additional fireplace on this floor. The chef’s kitchen has an attractive coffered ceiling, radiant floor heating, a large center island, custom cabinetry, and top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances. The eat-in kitchen adjoins the family room, which is enhanced with floor to ceiling windows and doors to the dining terrace and private gardens. There is the added convenience of a powder room and a large mudroom/pantry with abundant storage and a secondary refrigerator on this floor. The stunning original staircase leads to the generous second level, which is flooded with sunlight from an original Palladian window with dentil moldings and columns. The luxurious primary suite encompasses over half of the second floor and is flooded with sunlight from walls of floor-to-ceiling windows. It has a beautiful coffered ceiling and an impressive walk-in dressing room with built-out closets. There is also a well-appointed en-suite bathroom with radiant heat floors, dual vanities, a frameless glass shower, and separate soaking tub. The primary suite adjoins an attractive private sitting room/library with a wood-burning fireplace and a built-in desk and shelving. There are two additional bedrooms on this floor that capture abundant sunlight and share a central bathroom. All bathrooms have Waterworks tile and the sinks and fixtures are Dornbracht. There is also a washer and dryer on this level for added convenience. The third floor has three bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms.
