A storied Cleveland Park contemporary that rests amongst the trees! This modernist bungalow was once home to a former president of the National Building Museum, who lent inspiration from his foreign service postings throughout Asia when transforming the property in the 1960s. The home has been lovingly updated several times during this century and features four bedrooms, three full bathrooms, and a main level powder room across 2,100 square feet. The home is elevated well-above street level on a spacious lot that maintains an expansive rear patio, lush garden, and two-car off-street parking. The main level of the residence features an open plan with exposed beams, extensive built-in bookshelves, a beadboard ceiling, an ample living area that walks out onto the patio, and a kitchen with a breakfast bar and a pass-through window bar. The upper level houses a stunning primary bedroom with an ensuite bathroom, two additional bedrooms, and a full bathroom. The lower level boasts a generous family room and bedroom, along with a laundry closet, a full bathroom and a separate entrance from the rear patio for guests. The home's water supply is processed and filtered by a Hellenbrand water filtration unit. The property is a 10 minute walk from the amenities and shopping of Cathedral Commons or Connecticut Avenue, including the Cleveland Park Metro Station.
