On a quiet, cobblestone block in historic Georgetown, stands a refined residence, fully renovated over several years by Smith Architectural Group. Original details are married with modern design elements so seamlessly that it feels as if they were always there.
Upon entry, guests are offeredviews through the grand foyer to the reception rooms, a tranquil private garden, and an open well staircase. The formal living room boasts southern exposure and restored original windows with beveled glass. The stunning natural light extends through an opening to the dining room, which is illuminated by a Louis XV style, ormolu chandelier and gilt candle sconces in the evening, adding an opulent glow to dinner parties.
Nesting doors separate the modern Bulthaup kitchen, perfectly designed for intimate gatherings or catered events alike. A series of French doors provide soft natural light, illuminating Caesarstone countertops extending the length of the twelve foot island, as well as along the perimeter. Informal seating gives guests front row seats to witness the home chef prepare picture perfect meals with a Gaggenau appliance suite, including integrated gas range and double ovens, that melds flawlessly with the modern aesthetic.
