    Description

    Uniquely situated on the top-floor facing the gardens, Unit 501-H is a private wing of its own with 19 windows overlooking the tree-tops of the private gardens of the cooperative. Because of the orientation, on the garden side of the building, this home it is remarkably quiet and despite a Connecticut Avenue address, there is no road noise. Additionally, being surrounded by a canopy of trees provides a level of privacy that is exceptionally rare in the city. ------ There are only seven of these top-floor three-bedroom units in all of Tilden Gardens and only two overlook the private gardens on three sides! The penthouse location provides several important advantages, chief among them is that central air-conditioning can be installed in the crawl-space attic that is located above the home. This allows all the equipment and ductwork to be hidden, which preserves the historic integrity of the property. Additionally, with no neighbors above, the home is quieter than lower-level units and has the best views in the building. ------ Entering the home through the decorative metal gate you'll find a double-foyer drawing you into the sunny home which boasts southern, western and northern exposures. A graceful arched entry welcomes you into the over-sized living room with decorative fireplace. Most three-bedroom units have a separate solarium, but this home has opened the two rooms to provide a sunnier and larger space. The formal dining room easily rivals the size of such rooms found in single-family houses for large scale dinner parties, yet is intimate enough for quiet and cozy meals. ------ The fully renovated, custom kitchen is a gourmet cook's dream! Featuring a commercial-grade, six-burner Viking range and Viking range hood, Crystal-brand raised-panel wood cabinets, granite counters, stone backsplash with charming fleur-de-lis accent tile, undercabinet lighting and a window, this kitchen has it all. ------ The private quarters of the residence feature three spacious bedrooms and many generous closets. The owner's bedroom provides two exposures and en-suite, vintage bathroom with shower and original ceramic tilework. Another unique feature of this home is the double-folding French doors between the owner's bedroom and second bedroom. This allows for easy access between the rooms but provides privacy if needed. The second and third bedrooms share a second vintage full bathroom which also has all of its original ceramic tilework and is located off the hallway. ------ Architectural details abound throughout the home including original oak hardwood floors, nine foot ceilings, decorative ceiling medallions, arched entries, six-panel doors with brass knobs, two decorative fireplaces with mantels and built-in book cases. ------ Sited on a rolling hill-top in the Cleveland Park Historic District, you're within walking distance to two Metro stations (Cleveland Park and Van Ness, both on the Red Line) and all the shops, groceries, restaurants and commercial conveniences of Cleveland Park. Plus, just a few blocks north you'll find Van Ness with Fabio Trabocchi's Sfloglina restaurant, a Giant grocery store and more shops and restaurants. Just around the corner are the community Victory Gardens for those want to have their own garden plot and Rock Creek Park is accessible from the Melvin Hazen Park across the street. --------- Tilden Gardens Cooperative is set amidst five acres of lavishly landscaped grounds, it has front desk services from 7am-11pm, including holidays. The building's elegant lobby and lounge is available to host private parties. On-site laundry is free for residents. This home's extra storage unit is 8'T, 7'6"W and 6'4"D. Garage parking is available on a wait-list basis. Hot and cold water, heat, trash, laundry and bicycle storage are all covered in the monthly co-op fee. Pets are prohibited. Renting of units is restricted by Board approval on a case-by-case basis.
