    This quintessential Georgetown residence has approximately 3000 square feet of elegant living space with a flexible floor plan of 4 to 5 bedrooms including a rarely available detached carriage house suite. The stately semi-detached residence is set back from the street and the brick facade is enhanced with a double-sided front step entry and detailed millwork, including a lovely over-door pediment. The interior of the residence is flooded with natural sunlight from exposures on the three sides, which is further amplified by the large windows throughout. The house is wonderful for entertaining with generously scaled formal entertaining rooms and a seamless flow from indoors to outdoors. The main house offers a sophisticated front reception room and a gracious living room with a fireplace. The living room opens to a large, bluestone terrace, which is designed with mature trees and layered plantings for privacy. The entry level also has the added convenience of a powder room. The gourmet kitchen provides ample cabinetry storage and stainless-steel appliances. It opens to the elegant dining room, which is complemented with a fireplace, built-in shelving and cabinetry, and French doors to the exterior. There is an additional powder room on this floor as well. The second level of the house offers two bedroom suites, including the well-appointed primary. The beautiful primary bedroom has a wall of closets, a fireplace, and French doors to the Juliet balcony overlooking the lovely terrace below. The third level has two more bedrooms, one of which is currently being used as an office, connected by a full bathroom. There is also a private carriage house with stunning double French doors, a kitchenette, full bathroom, and sizable windows overlooking the lush terrace. The one-car garage below allows for covered secure parking and additional storage space. This special property is the last of the large estates owned by heiress Evalyn Walsh McLean, known as the last private owner of the 45-carat Hope Diamond, which is currently on exhibit at the Museum of Natural History.
