Grand architectural elements fill the amazing 1000+ square foot home with unparalleled attention to detail. Thoughtful modern updates throughout the home preserve the very best of classic styling with sophisticated hardwood flooring, trim work, paneling, crown molding, and three fireplaces with original woodwork. High ceilings and massive windows with custom blinds fill the home with natural light accented by recessed lighting and unique light fixtures. The layout offers amazing flexible living and entertaining space with two living areas on each side of the open kitchen anchored by an original fireplace with exquisite woodworking. Dining options abound with the convenient in-kitchen breakfast bar space for an additional table, or either adjacent room would make for an elegant formal dining room.

Easily the favorite relaxation spot in the home, the living room named “The Yosemite Room” closely resembles the Writer’s Room at the historic Ahwahnee Hotel in Yosemite National Park with warm wood wainscoting, fireplace, and rustic chandelier.  The magnificent primary suite is bright and spacious with plush carpeting, dual closets, French doors opening to a private balcony, built-ins, and a luxe en suite bath with custom tiling and wallpaper. The second bedroom and bathroom mirror the graceful styling of the primary suite. A full-sized washer and dryer, a new furnace and kitchen appliances, parking space, and much more complete this must-see home. 

It's easy to see why homes are rarely available at The Madeleine in the historic O’Donohue House surrounded by incomparable classic charm in the heart of the 16th Street Historic District. Built in 1907 for prominent lawyer, Daniel W. O’Donoghue, the extraordinary brick building creates a charming welcome home through the year-round front garden filled with native plantings. The quaint neighborhood offers convenient access to top restaurants, unique shops, and much to do while maintaining its quiet presence. Check off errands within a few blocks at 17th Street Hardware, Whole Foods, Trader Joes, and Safeway then hit the Dupont Circle Farmers Market, S Street Dog Park, or nearby Meridian Hill and Rock Creek Parks. Neighbors love the location nestled between 17th Street favorites, Duke’s Grocery, Annie’s Paramount Steak House, and Floriana along with the 14th Street hot spots Barcelona, Le Diplomate, and Pearl Dive. Don’t miss brunch at Mikko Café, burgers at Duke’s Grocery, chicken sandwiches at Lucky Buns, and Jeni’s Ice Cream. Located 1 mile north of the White House, downtown commuting is simplified by Metrobus on the next block and Dupont Circle Metro nearby.
