Third Sneak Peek - 1920s Elegance!
Walking into Darryl and William's home, time stops and the decades fade away. In this Tudor home the 1920s surround you with furnishings redolent of another era and lighting reminiscent of another tempo. The home chemistry straight out of a fairy tale stopped their search because they could not resist a Crestwood hearth with an original floor plan and architectural details. Sealing the captivation was the bucolic setting on the edge of Rock Creek Park.
Yet they were not hypnotized completely by its come hither look and completed a 3 year renovation in 2016 which included a stunning slate roof, bubble bath worthy renovated attic bathroom with cast iron tub, a kitchen designed to shine with double-height inset white cabinets, refinished hardwood floors throughout and new moldings milled to match originals in the living room, attic bathroom and foyer. They see their role as stewards of this house; to restore it in honor of the ancestors and to treasure the home for it's future. The interior is an extension of this philosophy and they searched high and lower for everlasting, classic pieces that evoke anecdotes of another era. Coupled with a salvaged mantle from Baltimore installed in the living room they have created a warm and gracious home ensconced in around-the-clock beauty.
