5 Beds | 4.5 Baths | 2,231 Sq Ft | 1926 Year Built | Sold
American settlers of the 18th century incorporated architectural design characteristics from their native countries into the houses they built during the colonial period. This colonial architecture was built in a variety of different idioms from Dutch to Georgian and many more. The style is virtually ubiquitous in the United States as it saw a revival during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The current owner of the Colonial Revival house at 1724 Upshur Street, NW was inspired by the modern farmhouse motif when he undertook the recent renovations. Farmhouses were originally built in a variety of architectural styles, though the overarching principles behind their design were simple and sturdy construction. The owner retained its solid exterior structure while accentuating the farmhouse concept with a standing seam metal roof. Every facet of the interior has been modernized, providing new HVAC, appliances, plumbing, electrical, lighting, windows, skylights, and doors.The house now offers four finished floors. The main level features an open format illuminated by large windows on all four sides. The living room looks upon the large covered front porch and has a beautifully redesigned wood-burning fireplace. The kitchen provides a large island with space for seating, ample under-counter storage, and elegant white Carrara marble countertops. The second floor comprises a master bedroom with ensuite bathroom, as well two additional bedrooms, a second full bathroom, and laundry facilities. The third floor provides the fourth bedroom, third full bathroom, and office. The lower level offers a den with wet bar, a fifth bedroom, and fourth full bathroom. The property also has a private rear garden with seating area, mature trees and a detached garage.
