$1,610,000 2810 Battery Place NW, Washington, DC 20016
Welcome to The Battery, a private community of 15 single-family homes nestled on a quiet cul de sac in the lushly landscaped Kent neighborhood, adjacent to Battery Kemble Park. This beautiful contemporary style home features an open floor plan, vaulted ceilings and walls of windows that flood the space with natural light. This home is an entertainer's dream! The gourmet kitchen has high-end appliances (SubZero, Wolf), custom cabinetry and island seating ... the perfect place for guests to sit and visit with the chef. The kitchen opens to a gracious dining room with room to accommodate a crowd, and beyond to the living room and cozy den with wood burning fireplace. The living and dining rooms open to a large private deck. This is a private space with a lovely view of the lush tree cover surrounding the park. A brick patio off the kitchen includes a built-in fountain (suitable for fish), a hot tub and access to the backyard. The detached garage accommodates two cars and a wall/cabinet storage system.

The second level has a spacious primary bedroom with walk-in closet, gorgeous en suite bath and large windows overlooking mature trees ... a serene and relaxing view. A second bedroom is used as an office and features custom built-ins, wood burning fireplace and accent windows overlooking the living room ... a bright and sunny work from home space! The walk-out lower level includes a family room with a wall of built-in cabinetry and shelving and another wood burning fireplace (that's three total!). There are two additional bedrooms on this level and two full baths (one en suite), plus laundry and storage.

This house has tons of recent updates: new roof, updated kitchen, four beautifully renovated full baths and powder room, new stair railing (replaced wood banister with cable rails for a more contemporary look), new hardwood flooring, fresh interior paint and exterior power washing and painting.

All this is situated in one of DC's finest neighborhoods just a block to Key Elementary School, three blocks to great restaurants and shops on MacArthur Boulevard, easy access to Downtown DC, MD and VA via MacArthur, Canal Road or Massachusetts Avenue.
