Where it is

3812 2 St. S.W.


The design

European-inspired homes draw designs and architectural features from spaces like Tuscan villas, English manors and French country chateaux. This home’s exterior, which boasts white pillars, large windows, dual Romeo and Juliet balconies and a brick exterior, evokes a European-inspired design. These types of homes are generally built up rather than out, creating a sense of luxury and unique charm. European homes often feature sweeping staircases, elegant formal rooms, textured walls and high ceilings, as is the case in this home.


What to love

The grand foyer is the first feature of this home, paired with an elegant grand staircase and soaring ceilings. A modern elevator connects all four floors as an alternative means of getting around.

The kitchen is designed to complement any night of entertaining with its massive island, a walk-in pantry, a spacious connected family room with a gas fireplace and a butler’s pantry just off the dining room. Two Romeo and Juliet balconies lead off the family room, offering natural lighting, fresh air and outdoor views.

Upstairs, there’s a spacious second family room with a wood-burning fireplace and a wet bar. The primary suite boasts its own fireplace and a large walk-in closet with an even larger ensuite offering a jetted tub and oversized walk-in shower. The level also includes a conveniently located home office/den area and a nearly 600-square-foot, west-facing deck with unbroken views of the mountains.


What to consider

This home offers convenient access to top-tier schools, 4th Street S.W. amenities, local dining, shopping and pathways systems. The unique elegance, design and charm of the home make it ideal for small families or those who love to entertain.
