This fine example of the Tudor Revival style is among the best of its size and scale found in Northwest Washington. It is located in Crestwood, a neighborhood known for its variety of historical revival styles comprising Craftsman, Tudor, Federal, and Georgian. Originally planned as part of a community of in-town estates, this house is a contemporary of many of its handsome neighbors. In the 1930s, Crestwood became a noteworthy destination and was also home to Harry Wardman, one of Washington's most successful real estate developers of the early 20th century. In this quiet and convenient neighborhood, just west of 16th Street, you find yourself near all of the pleasures and amenities of Rock Creek Park, the Carter Barron Amphitheater, and many new restaurants and shops located just east of Georgia Avenue. It is also home to one of the city's oldest and most active community associations. The owners of this residence have meticulously cared for their home, making many improvements while preserving its original spirit. The house offers a traditional floor plan: the main level features a renovated, eat-in kitchen, separate dining room, living room with wood-burning fireplace, and a spacious sunroom that opens onto the rear garden. The two upper levels provide a master bedroom with sitting room, as well as three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The fully finished lower level offers a family room with gas fireplace, separate laundry room, renovated bathroom, and an immaculate utility room offering additional storage. The property also features a professionally-landscaped garden, a fully-fenced rear yard with brick terrace, and a detached two-car garage.
