When you think of Georgetown homes, what comes to mind? Classic, upscale, historical? Maybe you picture former First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy's house built in 1794. You probably don't think of it as a hotbed for modernity.
But there is currently a listing on N Street that has our modern-loving little hearts a flutter. The 6-bedroom. 4.5-bath, 5,600-square-foot townhouse is awash in modern touches from the gorgeous floating staircase that is the centerpiece of the main level to the glass elevator and bamboo-filled, Boffi-designed master bathroom that will transport you to Bali.
"3245 N St was designed with incredible attention to modern style and technology," says listing agent Russell Firestone with TTR Sotheby's International Realty. "Some of my favorite features are the smart glass front door that instantly turns from clear to opaque at the touch of a button, the folding wall of doors that opens to the backyard creating an indoor/outdoor living room with a saline pool and the app-controlled house lighting system for different lighting schemes depending on the time of day. All of this modern style and technology in a townhouse in Georgetown, which has some of the oldest town houses in Washington.”
The Bulthaup kitchen with custom cabinets and Miele, Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances is any cook's dream, and the folding doors leading from the main living area (right off the kitchen) to the outdoor lounge and pool area make for a conducive entertaining layout. And we haven't even told you about the media room with a 4k projector and lighting controls! The ceiling has a star-speckled black panel to simulate watching a movie outdoors under the night sky, and the former residents enjoyed many a family movie night in this room.
