3031 Sedgwick Street. NW #404-E is offered at $600,000

Modern living and historic touches combine seamlessly in #404-E; the moment you walk into this home you know you've found a distinctive residence. The current residents completely renovated the home in 2001 by opening walls, replacing the kitchen and bathrooms, and adding new lighting and built-ins.

Open-plan living was achieved by opening the walls between the foyer, living room, dining room and kitchen. With the new open plan and 17 windows with three exposures (overlooking the Melvin C. Hazen Park and the complex's gardens), this home is flooded with light.

Handsome white cabinets with chrome hardware anchor the kitchen, which features Corian counters and stainless appliances. A clever design provides a second side sink, so two cooks can work together and a wine refrigerator allows for storing special vintages. The easily accessible full-length pantry is ideal for storing bulky items. The kitchen has been opened to the dining room with a peninsula for serving food and a built-in wine rack underneath.

Windows overlooking scenic parkland provide a charming backdrop for the spacious dining room and a beautiful light fixture provides ambiance for evening meals. It's been opened to the foyer and living room for easy flow when entertaining. The living room boasts a wall of custom built-in bookcases that is ideal for displaying objet d'art as well as rare books, in a fully configurable framework. With double windows overlooking the park and gardens, it's an ideal space for relaxation as well as formal entertainment.

Through original double-folding French doors off the living room, you'll find a spacious Solarium boasting two exposures - southern and western, with views of Melvin C. Hazen Park. 

The bedrooms are found on the private wing of the home and both have views of the historic gardens of the complex. The master suite has two exposures and a completely renovated ceramic tile half-bath. The hallway ceramic tile full-bathroom has been completely renovated and has a window overlooking the gardens.
