***OPEN SAT 7/20 12-1PM***$50k price adjustment and recently featured in ArchDaily, "the world's most visited architecture platform!" This unique eco-forward DETACHED new construction home is in the heart of the city. A home of this size, quality and design significance simply cannot be built from scratch at the current list price with today's cost of acquisition, design and construction. With an estimated 3,200+ finished above-grade square footage and 588 square feet of private exterior space, this all-electric, six bedroom, five bathroom home is loaded with features you can and cannot see. The main level has 10' ceilings and the second level has 9' ceilings. The entire southern face of the massive living and dining area is made up of a Pella insulated window/wall system providing abundant natural light and three sliding door access points to the 46' long covered patio. The kitchen is styled with custom cabinetry, stainless appliances, induction range, quartz counters that mimic soapstone with a waterfall edge, counter seating for 5+, task lighting and a camouflaged pantry under the stairs. The main level also includes a full bathroom and flexible space accessed via French doors that could function as a bedroom, office or playroom. Moving to the second floor, the railings and staircase details are handcrafted from solid white oak and stained to match the oak flooring found throughout the home. An enormous skylight sends light washing down the stairwell and into the hallway. The west end of the home contains the primary suite. The primary suite provides true luxury with a spa-like bathroom with a heated floor, three huge closets, a bedroom large enough for a king bed plus a seating area and a private covered balcony. The east end of the home contains a potential ADU, nanny or guest suite with its own exterior entrance, wet bar, full bathroom and covered balcony. Between the two suites are three additional bedrooms and two full bathrooms. A mix of insulated Anderson casement and picture windows are found throughout the second level. There are numerous features that are less obvious, yet extremely important. This home was constructed using the BamCore Prime Wall framing system. This is a bamboo/Eucalyptus/wood hybrid system that is stronger than traditional 2x6 framing, reduces thermal bridges by up to 90% compared with traditional stick and frame construction and sequesters more atmospheric carbon than is emitted throughout its harvest, manufacture and construction life cycle stages per BamCore's website. Practically speaking, heavy items like art and TVs can be attached to the walls without looking for a stud! There is an efficient dual zoned high-velocity heat pump for climate control that includes a fresh air replacement system. The garage is pre-wired to accept a Level 2 vehicle charger, and the roof is a prime candidate for solar. All bedrooms are hardwired for cable and Ethernet for a more secure work-from-home experience. The home is fully sprinklered for the highest fire protection and a discount on home insurance by most providers. This home is located in a quiet alley away from the hustle and bustle. Think of it as an urban cul-de-sac! There are friendly neighbors, many of whom get together regularly and are members of the Old Soldiers Home Golf Course and Wangari Gardens. It is walkable to both the Columbia Heights and Petworth Metros. The new McMillan Reservoir development ("Reservoir District") is only about three blocks away and will have a full-service grocer, restaurants and shops. The brand new nearby DC rec center with an indoor pool, splash pads, playground and fountain has officially opened! Aurora Market is right around the corner for coffee, cocktails, light fare and pantry staples. Call Your Mother Deli and The Midlands Beer Garden are only a 5 minute walk away, as are myriad other food and drink destinations. Thanks for your interest and please contact the listing agent with questions!
