In close proximity to downtown Washington, D.C., this gorgeous property is nestled on a private island bordered by Gallatin Street and Iowa Avenue, adjacent to one of D.C.'s finest Charter Schools. The property enjoys romantic covered porches, specimen plantings, and masterful landscaping. Often called the "Gaga" house, the enchanting 1913 Victorian was designed and reimagined into a Second French Empire style home by a DMV native. The grand-scale residence is truly a classic to be cherished. The generously scaled entry, living and dining rooms feature two impressive fireplaces with mirrored glass surrounds, high coffered ceilings with black detailed trim and hardwood oak floors. Sun-filled, leaded glass windows open to reveal fabulous views of the grounds and expansive gardens. The dining room offers guests another view of the wood-burning fire-pit and synthetic lawn and mature plantings. The kitchen and breakfast/living room were added to the home during an extensive renovation by Centerline Design which also included raising the third attic level to a full floor and replacing the pitched roof with a mansard roof. The chef-inspired kitchen has all stainless steel appliances including a 6 burner cooktop, refrigerator/freezer, and a double oven with a custom hood imported from Mexico. The adjoining breakfast/living room is washed in sunlight from the oversized windows on three walls and has easy outdoor access and a juliet balcony.The second level offers 4 large bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms including a washer and dryer and the home’s original clawfoot tub. The western bedroom has a private covered porch with tree top views. The primary bedroom suite completes the third floor and includes a star-studded dressing room with a mirrored glass vanity and own washer and dryer, a spa-inspired luxury bathroom, a dramatic sitting room, a private office area, custom built-ins with museum lighting and hardwood floors. The sitting room and custom built-ins were just completed this year during the second renovation by Meridian Homes. The lower level has additional living space with a private recreation room, exercise and utility spaces with built-ins and washer and dryer. The guest suite with an entrance from inside the home and private exterior entrance includes a complete kitchen, large bedroom with washer and dryer, full bathroom and a sunken living room with built-in shelving and drawers. The residence has many unique features including designer lighting, extensive millwork and crown moulding throughout, custom-built -in shelving and pocket doors (single and double) plus four built in dog houses.

The landscape scheme offers evergreen and flowering bushes for full year enjoyment and was designed to maximize privacy. The paver driveway has room for three cars comfortably plus a tesla charger. There are several patio destination areas-one under the boughs of the willow tree on the tip of the Island and another framed by a handmade rose arbor that was built using the original shutters from the home that were removed during the expansion.
