OPEN HOUSE CANCELLED, UNDER CONTRACT; Don't miss the 3-D Tour! Welcome to 1617 Marion Street NW, a modern retreat in the heart of Shaw. Virtually every inch of this home has been painstakingly renovated by the current owners with an eye towards creating a modern, luxurious 4BR/2.5BA, 2200 sq ft residence while still embracing the architectural elements that make this turn of the century Victorian Bayfront so elegant and timeless in its beauty. The impressive proportions of this 18 foot wide rowhome with 10 foot ceilings on the main level allow the interior space to feel both grand and intimate at the same time with each room perfectly proportioned and beautifully lit by oversized windows, full glass doors and a desirable East-West orientation. The upper two floors consist of 3BR/1.5BA, including a primary bedroom that easily accommodates a king bed as well as a separate seating area in the walkout bay with plenty of room to spare. The upper level bathroom was fully gutted and expanded for a true spa feel with Turkish marble floors, a Kohler Polished Chrome Console Sink, a Restoration Hardware medicine cabinet and sconces, a deep Kohler tub and a frameless glass shower panel. The entire lower level was dug out and gut renovated in 2017 with a front and back entrance and connecting stairs to create a largely self-contained one bedroom, one bathroom in-law suite/AirBnB or a seamless and natural extension of the upper level living space for use as a grand single family home. In 2019- the last year of use as an AirBnB- the lower level generated incredible revenues of $37,000 which is roughly equivalent to defraying a remarkable $750,000 in principal and interest of the overall mortgage at current rates. More recently, the owners used the space as a family room and home office in the main living area with a home gym in the rear bedroom. The 1500 sq ft lot contains a front patio as well as a charming screened-in porch overlooking the fully enclosed rear garden- a verdant oasis in the city featuring a permeable paver patio with three garden beds showcasing mature plantings, including a Japanese Maple, a Weeping Cherry Tree and a Fig Tree. An eight foot tall rear privacy fence could easily be converted to a rolltop garage for convenient off street parking. Quality materials and fixtures were carefully curated throughout this residence by the owner and include Marvin and Andersen windows throughout, ThermaTru Doors, Emtek Hardware, Lili cement tile, Quartz counters, Kohler toilets and sinks, high end lighting, solid core two panel interior doors and sand in place 5" oak flooring, just to name a few. This home's beauty is truly more than skin deep with internal system upgrades including Dual Zone Carrier HVAC systems, a commercial grade electrical heavy up, basement waterproofing with sub slab drainage system and sump pump, blown-in insulation in the attic, a whole house Aquasana Water Filter and additional soundproofing for the lower level. Marion Street is one of the most sought after streets in all of Shaw thanks to it being a one way, sparsely trafficked, two block street with beautiful Victorian Rowhomes, the Marion Street Garden and close proximity to everything this central location has to offer. 1617 Marion Street NW is just one block to the Shaw Metro Station (Green/Yellow Line just seven stops to the highly anticipated New Amazon HQ2!) and Shaw Library and just half a block from the 7th Street restaurant, retail and nightlife corridor which features Dacha Beer Garden, La Jambe Wine Bar, Compass Coffee, Grand Cata Latin Wine Shop, Michelin-rated Kinship, Giant Foods at City Market at O, and the iconic Howard Theater (just to name a few of the marvelous neighborhood amenities). Blagden Alley and the 9th Street Restaurant Corridor is just blocks away and CityCenter DC, Logan Circle/14th Street, the U Street Corridor and Bloomingdale are all at your fingertips. Agent/Owner.
