This gorgeous mid-century modern Palisades/Foxhall/Berkley home was built in 1953 and is a rare find. Treat yourself to a home nestled in lush greenery with a large magnolia tree out the front which you can see from the floor-to-ceiling windows in the expansive upstairs living room. This genuinely rare find is one of only a handful of homes maintaining and embracing its MCM architecture while having been updated with modern conveniences.

Drive up the driveway to your private retreat which has a first-floor and a second-floor entry both painted a pop of color. As you enter the first floor you will find a large family room complete with a decorative fireplace and wood built-in display shelving (a hallmark of mid-century design), a large bedroom, en-suite bath, and washer dryer/utility room. Follow the floating stairs with a modern metal banister to head upstairs to the ample living room with incredible floor to ceiling windows and a large patio that allow for terrific light. The recently updated bright white kitchen has new cabinetry and appliances. Pass a built-in custom desk as you head into the dining room with stunning original parquet wood floors. These continue into the second bedroom with two large closets. The hall bathroom with white tiling and vintage touches completes this one of a kind home.

This adorable residential area gives a small-town feel, all while being a short distance away from downtown and the excitement of DC! Stay close to home and enjoy local fare at Black Salt Market, Kotobuki, or Lupo Verde Osteria. If you're in the mood to cook at home, easily grab your groceries at the nearby Safeway. You're also walking distance from the Palisades Neighborhood Library. Fletcher's Cove is also close by and offers plenty of outdoor recreation and water sport options, and the Abner Cloud House and walking paths are just a few blocks away.

Security deposit equal to one month's rent. Tenant is responsible for electricity and gas and a $100 monthly flat fee for water. Pets welcome!
