Located in the Peninsula Neighborhood

Elegant Brownstone

Luxury and Convenience in the Peninsula Neighborhood



In more than 2,100 square feet, this premier townhome offers gracious living with views of protected trees and greenspace in a neighborhood where properties are in high demand. Its position at the east end of a five-brownstone structure allows windows on three sides, providing extra natural light to shine on many upscale features.


Attraction begins with striking street presence.  This is readily apparent with this home’s finely detailed brickwork set off by black trim and railings, front stoop with mini-roof-shelter and transom window above the main entry door, and two sets of French doors topped by transom windows below arched bricks.




Inside, attention to craftsmanship continues with wide trim, fine cabinetry, plantation shutters, and quartz countertops, all in white, complemented by restful dove-grey painted walls. Except for soft carpeting in a lower-level bedroom and beautifully tiled baths, hardwood-like flooring is used throughout all three levels.  Durable, and in a medium stain, this flooring provides elegant continuity from room to room--and visually expands space.


The main level is an open plan in which the living room, kitchen, and dining area comprise an ideal space for daily living activities and entertaining.  In addition to the living room’s double set of French doors that can be opened to decorative safety railing, open-area highlights include a fireplace with a black glass surround; a kitchen island with seating, a double sink, and a dishwasher; a gas range and other upscale stainless-steel appliances; and a walk-in pantry.  Down a center hallway are coat closets, a powder room, stairways up and down, and entry to the two-car garage.


The townhome’s upper level has two large bedrooms, one currently used as a second family room.  Both have ensuite tiled baths.  The master bedroom has two walk-in closets and looks out over woods and greenspace.  It has access to a large sundeck through two sets of glass French doors.   This inviting space is private and partially sheltered by the roof.










The lower level has its own entrance, reminiscent of vintage brownstones on the East Coast. It serves as a cozy family room with natural light, and has hidden plumbing and electrical service to allow a small kitchenette in the future if wanted.  Also on this level is a bedroom with a window, a full bath, and a mechanical/storage room.






The current owners and the building’s architect put great thought into each detail of this fine and solidly-built townhome.  It very successfully idealizes and upgrades features of vintage brownstones that have pleased cosmopolitan dwellers since the 1800s.
