A stately Georgian colonial home, fit for Georgetown but located in Woodley Park, just hit the market for $2,450,000. Formerly owned and maintained by the Mellon family, 3009 Cathedral Avenue NW (map) is an elegant yet understated, 5,000-square-foot beauty that has been meticulously updated and impeccably preserved.

The interior of the five-bedroom, 4.5-bath home is punctuated by high ceilings, antique crystal chandeliers and plenty of space to entertain. Unique details include a library with a mantle and gas fireplace adjacent to the master bedroom; custom millwork, paneled wainscoting and dentil crown molding; a lower-level au pair suite with separate entrance; dual staircases and pocket doors; and a first-floor fireplace with marble surrounds. Highlights of a three-level addition include a family room with a breakfast nook and a lower-level recreation room, as well a marble master bathroom and skylights throughout.
