$1,285,000 629 Q St NW, Washington, DC 20001
Open House Cancelled....Under Contract; $35k Price Improvement! Welcome to 629 Q Street NW, a Victorian Bayfront gem in the heart of Shaw. This exquisite residence has been completely restored and reimagined by the current owners with each high end material and finish carefully curated and painstakingly sourced to create a truly bespoke living experience. This four bedroom, three and a half bath home totaling 2100 square feet perfectly marries the cherished architectural details of the past - including a gorgeous brick facade, intricate mouldings and millwork, exposed brick, high ceilings and long elegant windows- with an eclectic mix of modern and classic designer touches to create a space that is both edgy and intimate, entirely one of a kind and designed to last.

The open living and dining room enjoys gorgeous natural light all day from the southern-facing bayfront windows. Light, wide plank floors pair beautifully with the crisp white color scheme and the exposed brick of both the entryway and the restored fireplace with its nero marquina hex tile surround and carved wood mantle. The renovated kitchen is a chef's dream with wraparound marble counters, ample shaker-style hardwood cabinetry, a large farmhouse sink and a full suite of GE Cafe appliances, including a gas slide-in range with double oven and range hood. A ceramic hex tile backsplash that extends from the counters to the ceiling and open wood shelving add texture and contrast to the space while the pi?ce de r?sistance of the kitchen- an arched set of iron doors standing nine feet tall - provides exquisite light while uniting the interior space with a fabulous and private exterior deck and entertaining area.

The upper level features three bedrooms and two baths, including a magnificent, south-facing primary suite with a marble lined bathroom with a large soaking tub and shower. The mix of materials and design elements in the primary suite, with its hardwood Plantation shutters, exposed brick, a wall of floor to ceiling bamboo wardrobe closets and a reclaimed wood barndoor, make this space stylish, timeless and tranquil. A full-sized, front loading washer and dryer on the bedroom level adds convenience to this wonderful offering.

The lower level of 629 Q Street NW was brilliantly designed and expanded to offer the perfect flexible space while also creating the potential for a fabulous in-law suite or lucrative short term-rental thanks to its exterior entrance and staircase leading to the secure rear walkway with access on neighboring Marion Street. The space contains a central family room, a large bedroom, a renovated full bath and a bonus recreation room which is currently serving as an office and home gym and contains plumbing and electric already in place for a potential kitchenette.

Lined with Victorian rowhomes?with beautiful sun-soaked front gardens, the North Side of the 600 block of Q Street NW is one of Shaw's most sought after blocks thanks to its close proximity to the trendy 7th Street Restaurant and Retail Corridor- featuring Dacha Beer Garden, La Jambe (French Wine Bar & Restaurant), Grand Cata Latin Wine Shop, The Yoga Shala, Compass Coffee, Beau Thai and much more, including the pending arrival of Ambar (Modern European?Cuisine). The Shaw Metro (Green/Yellow Line to Nats Park and Amazon HQ2!) and the Shaw Library are just a block away and City Market at O (Giant Foods?+ Convivial), the Howard Theater, the 9th St Restaurant Corridor and Blagden Alley are mere blocks away. The ultimate urban lifestyle awaits! Street parking is plentiful in the neighborhood but there is also garage parking half a block away at Jefferson Marketplace for $225/mo.
