BLISS ON Q
When a home sits on land once occupied by an embassy near Dupont Circle, it’s a good bet that the location is going to be spectacular. Such is the case with this four-level stunner that’s tucked away on a quiet, tree-lined street. The 4,800-square-foot property, featuring six bedrooms and 5 ½ baths, rises to four levels and boasts soaring ceilings, an open floor plan, hardwood floors, four refurbished fireplaces and a gourmet kitchen with waterfall countertops. Steel and glass doors lead to an idyllic garden terrace, which becomes an alfresco oasis fit for year-round enjoyment. The sunlit primary suite benefits from a cozy fireplace and an en suite bath; the top floor also holds another expansive bedroom and space for a fitness studio or office. The indoor area is perfect for entertaining, but when the warm weather arrives, the sweeping rooftop deck is the spot for lavish cocktail soirees and intimate dinners. Homeowners also will discover a bonus separate apartment with a sixth bedroom and bath—perfect for guests or rental. This one-of-a-kind townhome is also a commuter’s dream with spacious three-car parking. $3,500,000, 2013 Q St. NW, Jenn Smira Team, Compass, 202.601.3660, jennsmira.com
