Considered one of the most prominent private residences in Georgetown. It is perfectly sited on historic N Street in the exclusive East Village. This stunning residence with magnificent scale and proportions includes five levels totaling 13,400 finished square feet, major entertaining areas, 8 bedrooms, 10 full baths, 2 powder rooms, ELEVATOR, a 60-foot indoor Bromide lap pool, lovely private garden, private balconies and parking. It is perfect for large scale entertaining with spacious public rooms and wonderful flow. It also easily accommodates a large family with multiple guests and staff. The master suite encompasses an entire floor with an elegant reception area, his and her baths and dressing rooms, and an extraordinary paneled library - all with elevator access. The guest rooms are large and luxurious. Everything is light-filled, including the gym with views of the Potomac River and Georgetown. Among the house~s countless attributes is its originality. Since its evolution differs from the basic models of Federal and Victorian architecture, it has a singular look and layout without losing any of its classic and traditional feel. The Edes House was built in 1907 and was dedicated under a special act of Congress as a home for Georgetown widows. This fine example of Colonial Revival architecture was painstakingly restored as a spacious and elegant single family home and featured as the 1998 Decorators~ Show House. Purchased by the current owners, the house was re-designed and re-renovated by Thomas Pheasant to the highest level of finish and comfort. Since then it has been perfectly maintained and continuously updated, making it as fresh and current as it was after this 4-year renovation. I have attempted to put all of the house details into the MLS, but there is so much more. For example, each floor has a large, wonderful landing giving a sense of opulence to each level. The moldings and paneling are extensive and exceptionally tasteful. All of the windows are huge providing extreme light. The indoor pool is exquisite, and there is absolutely no pool smell in the house. There is a telephone room with powder and walk-in coat closet inside the front door. All of the hardware, sconces, fabric walls, doors and floors are of the finest quality and taste. This is not a house that one would want to miss or not show to an eligible buyer.Architectural Digest article link: https://www.architecturaldigest.com/story/pheasant-article-042004
