This penthouse jewel spans the entire Connecticut Avenue side of 2029 Connecticut, and evokes the apex of Parisian elegance: beautifully high ceilings, fine plaster moldings, luxuriously proportioned rooms and hardwood floors. Monument views from the south side, and Cathedral views from the west and north. The almost 20' foyer, with two coat closets, opens to the 42' x 12.5' stunning gallery that is the center of the home. It opens to the living room, formal dining room, library, owner~s suite wing and guest suites. The living room and library feature fireplaces plus a discreet wet bar tucked into the library. The newer eat-in kitchen has a chef's Wolf range, Subzero fridge and walk-in pantry. Open to the kitchen is a family room or 5th bedroom, currently used as a studio. The formal dining room easily seats 16-20, and the adjacent gallery can accommodate another 40 guests for a sit-down dinner. There is a catering kitchen/bonus room with its own entrance. The owner~s suite wing has 2 corner bedrooms (one currently used as a fully built-out office), and 2 baths. 2-3 additional bedrooms and 2 additional baths complete this fine offering. Nothing else like it in town! Two parking spaces plus a large storage space convey. The building offers a lovely roof deck with sweeping views, a powder room and catering kitchen, plus a large fitness center on the lower level. Buyer backed out of contract for personal reasons.
